PRIMAL - Book Notes

I actually wrote Primal as a novella first - in 2017. It erupted out of me. I had never before had a writing experience like it, and I have not had one since. It compelled my pen to the notebook page one day – and it would not let up until it was finished. It was an entirely linear experience, like one solid block of energy, from start to finish. I wrote it in about three weeks. I was up at night, unable to sleep, writing it. I was living it. 

     Years later, I revisited its spirit, and metamorphosed its prose into lyrics. And Primal, the lyric novel, was born.
