A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word processor. She told him she was writing a story. "What's it about?" he asked. "I don't know," she replied, "I can't read."
Many of us can relate to that story. We're busy pounding away, writing the story of our lives. But sometimes we're so busy with the activity of it we don't have any idea what we're writing. Some of us can't even read.
What is the story of your life about? Do you have it clearly pictured in your mind? Are you focused on developing the character, carefully laying in the details, and taking the plot to a specific end? Are you writing an adventure, a thriller, a comedy, a romance, or a horror story? Are you compiling a story of fiction, or lining out a compelling non-fiction?
Or are you just pounding away?
