The happenings thus far, simply characters and setting but the plot continues to unfold.
I have just figured this out.
What I have previously believed to be a story are merely chapters in the great novel of my life. And though I will never right the next Great American Novel, my life will be my own version of this, as will yours.
Because I only have one life to live. The thought following that is, "so you better get it right". But I won't. There will be things I miss, things I add which should have been left out. The important thing is that I remember that I'm actually not the author. He is. I'll let him weave the words, create the climaxes and enter the hero because what I could put down would be not only unworthy of market but tragic.
So, I'll live each day on the page I'm at. I can't peek ahead and I can't erase what's come. I just trust. Trust that He is the best storyteller who's ever been and He's writing mine.
