Stories paint vivid pictures in our minds.
Also allowing for the use of one’s imagination.
Where do you see the plot turning?
How would you react if you were the main character?
In most stories, we are so far removed from having any impact, realistically.
But, have you ever considered your own life a story?
After all it is being created daily, you’re lucky enough to play the main character, and it’s one you have the most authority over.
