I haven’t given much thought to epitaphs on gravestones, especially not my own, but when Jon Gibbs mentioned the words he plans to have chiseled on his gravestone I decided maybe it was something we should all consider.
As writers we get caught up in our quest for publication, hoping our words will be immortalized, but in reality our stories might never make it past the submission stage. Or if published they may spend eons languishing on dusty shelves in obscure secondhand bookstores. I’m not wishing this on anyone, of course, just pointing out that words carved into stone are more permanent. 🙂
If you were to choose the words to appear as your final statement, what would they be? (Then go check out Jon’s post… he has some dandies planned!)
