Twigs 20

Whew! The all made it home! And here’s my biggest block about this story. The two main characters are NOT the ones who resolve the problem. An outsider does!  The Old North Wind. Somehow I feel the reader gets cheated since the main characters don’t solve their own problem! Hence, this, plus too much rhyme, are my two reasons for wanting to rewrite this whole story. Oh, well, there are a few more issues I have with this story. Once this first try is finished, I’ll give it a shelf break and come back to it later. As for me, I’m going to catch a few ‘winks’.

    I can’t remember if I already left this comment somewhere, but… it’s sort of an interesting lesson (if you think it needs to have a lesson): sometimes things resolve themselves, but the adventure still has meaning.

    Hmmm…yes that’s true, often things do resolve themselves, or Life positively intervenes…like the Old North Wind did. Actually N. Wind created the issue in the first place! Perhaps if this story were written in prose, there might be a way to ‘notice’ the gremlin-like works of life that create things that cause us to get involved, and then have all kinds of learnings and adventures…. Hmmm…thanks, John…we’ll see…
