Your Dying Spouse 543 - Why We Write
All is not well, and I hope you won't mind me recycling a comment I made this morning (seems like forever ago) on the Steve Laube Literary Agency blog, on Popular Story Tropes In Current Fiction.
"I think that there’s just one trope, just one reason for the plea, “Tell me a story!”
"People want to know that their life matters, that events are shaped to purpose.
"They want to know that the traumas were for a reason, and that the joys have some counterpart in Infinity and aren’t irretrievably lost to time.
"And that there is a road ahead, leading to a warm place, and that everything doesn’t end in the cold and the dark.
"Because we’re all of us so terribly afraid of the dark."
In other words...tell me how this ends.
With Jesus as the Light, there's no reason to fear the darkness...
Jesus told stories too.
And even He asked that the darkness of Good Friday somehow pass Him by.
Tell Me how this ends.
It's OK to recoil from the dark. It's OK to be scared.
Just climb into the lap of the master Storyteller.
Tell me a story.
Music from Any Williams, with Almost There. It's a nice song...so why not?
