The foreword is the part of the book that comes just before the beginning.
Oh wait, you don’t read books anymore? Okay.
So, pretend this book is a DVD; the foreword would be the special extras with commentary, a little bit about how the story was developed, cast, filmed and the people involved in making the story come to life. The foreword is about how the real story came to be— and that’s what we’re trying to do here, with this blog. The 4 of us, different as we all are, make one crazy story. As we move forward, together or thousands of miles apart, this is our way of remembering and acknowledging that different is good.
We’re like a sisterhood of traveling pants. Except we don’t travel, only two of us are sisters, and we don’t share one pair of pants because that’s unsanitary. Sharing a blog is so much more hygienic.
