Meaning to Write

Luca Caesar Narrative Craft Giuliani

I’ve just become a better writer. I didn’t attend a writing conference, finish a book of prompts, or get a piece published. In fact, strictly speaking, I didn’t do anything.

Life happened. As a result of this particular occasion, words, concepts and ideas matured to a level previously censored by  inexperience. We had a baby, a new pendulum swung. Love, loss, and lineage make for fine writing, and I’ve finally collected on the trifecta.

I’ve written from love and loss, before, and now I can write from a place I had only pictured (from friends and family, not so much from “I Didn’t Know I was Pregnant” on TLC, which really only taught me one thing:  to avoid having a baby skip the bath). Family, love, fear, exhaustion, fatherhood, marriage, and joy (to name just a few, for instance I left out meconium) now have entirely different meanings to me, and as a result, something tells me my writing just got a whole lot better (where I started from, is a different story.  Hey, everything is relative).

Welcome to the world, Luca Caesar Giuliani.

  1. Welcome to parenthood – and congratulations! Nothing better for a writer than expanding their experiences and I’m sure your Luca will do just that! Enjoy your time with him. It goes by far faster than you’d ever think possible. (Take it from a parent of two young adults!) 🙂

    • Thank you 🙂 It has been a crazy two weeks, to say the least. Things will definitely be different, for instance my wife just asked “does that whale outfit have feet?” Yea, things are a little bit different – I love it! I have never been so happy in my entire life!

  2. So true! Whole new horizons of emotional experience are waiting to be explored! Can’t wait to see everyone.

    PS. the subject of the wiki link was unexpected to say the least. scatological humor is a territory I didn’t think you’d ever go 😉 i guess life takes you places!

  3. Looking forward to hearing all about the newest Giuliani! Can’t wait to meet him either!

    • Thanks buddy…based on my social media posts, you will probably regret saying that (not the meeting part – that will happen in November)!

      • Don’t worry, if I get tired of you telling me about him (not likely) I will respond to every story with sending you a photo of my dog. “And this is her sleeping, and this is her yawning, and this is her running, and this is her awkwardly licking herself…”

  4. Congratulations and best wishes. You might even want to try writing a “Letters to Luca” style blog…..for him to read when he grows up. 😉

  5. CONGRATS!!!! Pure awesomeness, my friend!

  6. Congratulations and remember my mantra: writers write.

  7. I am looking forward to many more Luca inspired writing. Love you!

    • You are the best, thank you Kether for reading my blog and leaving so many lovely comments. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside, just like waking up to Mr. Stinky pants, whoops I mean Luca! Much love from the three Gs*.
