Your life is your story. Make it a good one.

hahaha so i am famous for starting a story and then never finishing it. maybe that's why i like writing songs, because i can get my feelings out and express myself, but it's short enough that i will actually finish it before i get bored and move on =D haha i'm not sure exactly what my issue is, but i do know i have one! i've been working on a story since September, and i have 9 pretty solid chapters in place...which i realize is not all that impressive considering the amount of time its taken me to put that in place!! =D hahaha but since i've realized from past novel writing attempts, i tend to allow the story to take on a life of its own. which, in some respects i think is good, but i know i have to keep it reigned in. because otherwise, by the end, the story is all over the place, and nothing lines up. which, i guess, if you think about it, is kind of like life. you let it flow a little, but at the same time you keep it close. because if you just go through life going with the flow, at the end you may look back and see that the story took over and is all over the place. and i don't think any of us want to look back on our lives only to realize that our stories lived us, rather than we lived our stories. ♥
