So How Do You Like It Now

It’s 2010 and I’m sure everyone out there wanted to be rich by now,, wanted to famous by now, or both.

Perhaps your idea of riches is different from some and perhaps your idea of fame is different than some, but in the end, it is always the same.

The hero gets the girl, the hero wins the day, destroys the bad guy and generally wins the hearts of the town’s people. In most stories, the dog even greets the hero and lets him know how good he is.

Over the years, I’ve discovered that the story doesn’t always work out like that,, it usually ends differently.

I’ve discovered that the hero usually isn’t very willing to be the hero and the villan usually wants to hurt everyone in the story.

So I guess that in my stories from now on, the endings will be different than the ones people think about and may the mystery begin.

    A wise man once told me (and others)… “We are writing our story every day. Every now and again we start a new chapter, but we keep on writing our story day after day after day. In the end, we only get 2 words. THE END, or SO WHAT or GOOD JOB, or WHO CARES or WELL DONE. In writing our story, we should always be thinking about those last two words, which are the most important words of our story. But of all the words in our story, these are the only two words written by others.” In response to your post, I don’t think one becomes a hero (or not) until the very end. Even heroes mess up and lose their standing. Incredibly bad people can experience redemption and become heroes. I think our story is much more important than the title we hold at any given time (which is always subject to change). We’ll get our title in the end, from others… the ones who watch our story. K
