A New Story and An Old One

Last week, I met five new friends. I had known a little about them beforehand–their names, life situations, and even a few of their faults. Now though, I really got to know them. I saw what they looked like, what they cared about most in life, and how they reacted to others. I even watched a pivotal moment in their lives happen.

You see, I started a new story.

Character development is one of my favorite parts of writing because it’s a time of exploration. It’s a little window where I can flesh out who these people are and who they will be before I throw a plot at them. πŸ˜‰

Since it’s for my creative writing class, I thought I wouldn’t enjoy it as much as my own projects, but I fell in love with it last week. Even on a close deadline. πŸ˜€

This story is a challenge for me with 5+ points of view. πŸ˜‰ (A unique outlook for each character is key!) I’m also writing a male artist for the very first time which is super exciting. πŸ˜€ This story will be a mixture of our reality with one very special “sci-fi” element thrown in.

But the main reason I’m excited is because I get to tell the same Story over again in a different way. The story of God’s love for His children. Him calling out to His own with grace and forgiveness. My favorite story. πŸ˜‰

Let the adventure begin.

  1. Oh yes! That sounds amazing. And great way to introduce us to them on your blog – it sounds like so much fun the way you word it. (And so right, too!)
