A Journey For All of Us

Every one of us has a book within waiting to be written. With each of us is on his/her own journey. It’s only a matter of what you decide to make of it. Remember that last time your car broke down? Did you rant? Did you get angry and blame someone else? Did you take it out on someone else? That is the makings of drama.

We writers use drama – aka conflict. The conflict in our stories. It is the glue that keeps us reading. Conflict is a reaction to a problem – big or small. When the reaction is in a big way – that creates drama, the sort of thing that the soap operas are made of.

The next time your car runs out of gas, the windshield wipers fall off, or your tire rolls past you on your way to the store, think of it as part of your journey. You’re that story that only you can write the happy ending for.
