Welcome to Five.
Every five weeks, I will share five original true stories, all loosely huddled under one umbrella topic. Some of the details might be changed—I’d say, “to protect the innocent,” but I realize that no one is innocent—but the pieces, people, and places are as true as memory allows.
My name is Meister, and I write sometimes. I’m a trained and published journalist, and I also compose a pretty good e-mail. Real in-the-mailbox letters? I do those, too. This is where I share stories culled from life. It’s an exercise in creative vulnerability, and a chance for me to flex my storytelling muscles.
I hope you like ’em—all Five.
