A to Z Challenge - F is for Feelings
It's time for another A to Z Challenge! This year, I want to tell you about a story that is currently a WIP (work in progress). It's the story I'm writing in honor of my baby lovebird, Robert. It's a fantasy story, but it's really a story about emotional healing. So let's examine it by going through the alphabet!
The letter f stands for feelings.
The story of The Good Pirate, Robert is one that is very emotionally driven. It was my sadness in his death that led to me to start to write the story. The message of the story is about emotional healing. So feelings are the foundation of this book.
Now feelings and emotions are a part of any story, that's true. For me, and for this story, though, they are paramount, though. Without feelings, this story would not and could not exist. You can't have emotional healing without emotions, right?
The good thing about this, is that it's not all bad feelings. Yes, there is some sadness. There's also joy, peace, excitement and wonderment...Robert's story does not fall flat emotionally. Rather, it guides us through a myriad of emotions, bringing us to a wonderful place in the end.
Sometimes feelings create the best story lines.
Come on back tomorrow for more A to Z fun!
