Each day of my adult life I am more amazed at the way all things are connected. If I stop long enough to trace a thread of connection with an event or a person, the pattern is no less interesting than an intricate work of art and the experience is similar to the enjoyment found in reading a great book.
The challenge is in the stopping to notice part.
In order to do so, I must treat fear, anxiety, anger, and frustration as unwelcome guests and adamantly deny them access in my story.
And, since I am a co-author of my own story, I can choose to write a main character that overcomes all obstacles in an breath-taking climax that pulls all the mysteries together in the end.
