Prompt/Cope 10/20/17: “Looking back”

#buddykeepwriting

How do you write about nostalgia without being nostalgic?  How does one write about past suicide attempts without “re-living” it?   For that matter, how does one write about anything painful from the past?   Is it still painful and you write about it to try to “deal” with it?  Or do you write about it to re-assess yourself? to look at how you’ve overcome?   How would you structure the narrative and language in such a writing exercise to relate the tension between past/present?  (by David Welper)
