I’ve figured out what my theme is!
So, here’s the story. Someone recently challenged me to figure out my personal stamp on writing. So I’ve been asking myself: what defines me as an author? What am I about? How do I best convey that?
Well, after much considering and mulling, (like the famous statue The Thinker) I have figured out my theme as a writer!
Here it is: I write stories about people who often struggle to understand their adventures, but when they get to the end, they are able to see what they have learned through their difficulties.
What does this revelation mean for me? It will help me to decide what story ideas to pursue. If an idea works well with my theme, I’ll know it is worth pursuing. If not, then I’ll know to leave it alone.
