There is no way this is a 2-minute read. Two minutes per line maybe. Lots of reflection required and willingly given. I see a book of poetry in your future. :-)

To me, they're clearly poems! And i have to read them at about the same pace.

Agree these read like poems. Inspiring, Rémy, thank you.

Was going to ask which stage you're on but realised it's too personal a question. Decided to ask myself that question, instead.

As only a screenwriter I think could do… characters all on their own, but interconnected arcs. Really really love this, Remy.

Interesting too how this reads as a journey of stages over time, but can and does happen in the span of days, hours, minutes even. Ooof, The Human Experience.

Thank you, Remy. Love these.

Can I ask a question? What are your Substack categories, and in what order? Humor first or second? And what is the other? I am constantly struggling with where I belong (in the world, sure, but in this instance I mean Substack).

My main category is humour and second is fiction. But while I have seen my articles trend in the humour category I have never ever seen them anywhere in fiction, so it seems the main category is what really matters.

Thank you. That’s really helpful. x

Love the question and answer format resulting in a kind of flow you read and feel in poetry. Lovely and wise.
