As writers, we craft our character’s stories. We consider and construct their current situation, their identity, their wants, and desires. We determine who they want to be and plot their story arc. We help the protagonist overcome their struggles and move them to their story’s conclusion.
Every day we make decisions that frame and influence our future. We allow things to unfold, reacting to circumstances and forces seemingly beyond our control. If we can control fictional characters what is stopping us from deliberately constructing our own lives? We can write our own stories. The trick is to be self-aware. Consider your vision. We all want to be better, but we need to define what better means for us.
While we don’t know what obstacles we might face, we can plot a course.
What steps are you taking to build a better life?
Keep on writing.
