Once upon a lifetime ago
You breathed your way into the world
Beginning the story that is your life
Through moments and days and months and years
Every weird and wondrous and wicked thing you’ve seen
Everything you’ve heard, and felt, and read, and done
All of this has been added line by line by line to the story of you
And every line has led you to here, this moment, this now
Today marks the end –
the riveting end of the chapter titled The Formative Years
A cliffhanger ending perhaps…
What will happen when you turn the page?
Make this new chapter worthy of being read
It’s time to put pen to page and write what happens next
Make sure when you do that you know the secret of all good writers.
First drafts are messy.
Revision is powerful. And necessary.
Even the most carefully edited manuscript always has a typo or two.
To be believable, the main character will have flaws
Love and loss
A life story
Tonight the page is turning
The new chapter beginning
So write life large and in permanent marker
The world needs your story
The world is waiting for you
