Two Stories
What’s the story you most desire to bring to life in 2016?
What’s the story your just-right client most desires to bring to life in 2016?
Where do your two stories overlap?

What’s the story you most desire to bring to life in 2016?

m_Quest 12 Same Story Sane story 2It should be easy for a story-teller to tell their story for 2016, right? So why is this turning out to be the hardest prompt for me to answer?

I guess it’s because the story I most desire to bring to life in 2016 is neither new nor unique. It’s the same story I’ve been working on for years now–the one in which finally all my ‘dues’ are paid, my work is both recognised and earning me a comfortable living, and I reach that point where life is fun and full of wonderful adventures every Wednesday. Don’t ask me why, but most of my adventures have begun on a Wednesday… So, I’m hoping by next Wednesday to have this story start moving briskly along instead of being stalled as it appears to have done for most of 2015.

 

My just-right client and their story?

I have two just-right clients to consider: my readers and my design clients.

m_Quest 12 readers adventureI’ve been fortunate in already ‘meeting’ my just-right readers.

They are the Melissa Roses and Rachel Pauls of the world. Woman with a sense of humour, adventure, and a sense of honor and how to honor others.
My just-right reader is also my parent’s friend who read my novel every morning and evening in the carpool drive, and my critter friends who read and comment.
All of my just-right readers call me out on things they don’t like, enjoy my writing anyway, and support me further.
Their story for 2016 is to find new stories or old stories with new twists, to read about adventure while learning about new cultures, and having a little bit of a laugh with and idea to chew upon.

My just right design client and their story for 2016?

m_Quest 12 Not Buying inThey are following their integrity. They are leading from the front. They are open to new ideas, reinventing the old, learning from history and not making the same mistakes twice. They are much like me in their visions for a better future, and not buying into the doom and gloom mythos with is currently pervading much of the collective experience.

 

 

 

Where our stories overlap?

m_Quest 12 Overlap
Their intuition, and mine, will tell us where our stories overlap–past, present or future. And if our stories don’t or won’t overlap, that’s fine too. You can’t have a walk-on on every person’s life-stage, but you can still provide them with a good service 🙂
