Exulansis = n. the tendency to give up trying to talk about an experience because people are unable to relate to it — whether through envy or pity or simple foreignness — which allows it to drift away from the rest of your life story, until the memory itself feels out of place, almost mythical, wandering restlessly in the fog, no longer even looking for a place to land.
I have enrolled the Literally Literary Contest at Medium.com, Exulansis – A Reason to Write.
“The word strikes so close to the heart of why so many people choose to express themselves through writing. How could we resist?”
Indeed, I cannot resist.
