Real conversation between me and The Dervish:

Dervish: Once upon a time there was a girl named Molly Bobolly. No, her name was Frisbee Light. No. I don’t know what her name was.

Me: Well, you can decide that later. And what did she do?

Dervish: Then she decided to…she…I don’t know what she did.

Me: That’s the beauty of it. You’re telling the story. She can do anything you want. Anything.

Dervish: I can’t. I don’t know how the story goes. (sighs)

I hear you, kiddo. Just keep at it; get it out and fix it later. Something will come to you.  I know you’ve got a story to tell.
