A week or so ago I mentioned some problems on my blog and on Facebook.
I’m sorry to have been whining. Actually, problems can be a good thing.
As a writer I can tell you if there’s no conflict, there’s no plot.
Imagine how boring the world - and people - would be if nobody ever had any problems.
Like the characters in fiction, the interesting things in our lives are how we dealt with problems and what the results were.
Looking back, my life has included some tragedy, comedy, romance and, at my age, some of it is now historical fiction. And the fact that I’m writing this at my computer and sharing it on the internet would have been considered science fiction when I was young.
And, like characters in books, I’ve been shaped in many ways by the plot events I’ve experienced.
My life has been exciting and I anticipate a happy ending.
How about your lives?
