It is the first Wednesday of the month, and IWSG Time.
IWSG is a writer support group created and led by Alex Cavanaugh. It is a big help to many of us who do not mind sharing our insecurities, our successes or giving encouragement and help to others.
So, if you are interested and would like to join, the link below will lead you directly to us:
Glimmer Train: Very Short Fiction
The Perspective That Propels My Imagination
Honestly, my answer to this question is short. I am an optimist in every sense of the word. When people see storms, most of the time, I see the rainbows behind the storms. One of my psychology professors pinned me very well when I was studying for my master’s degree. He said, Pat jumps into the ocean without worrying about the sharks. It is when she sees them coming that she starts thinking about a way to deal with them.
Which comes to our question of the month for the IWSG. I always write from my protagonist point of view. Why? Because I see them as world changers beating down the sharks only when they have too. They are so optimistic about changing the world that they don’t consider the sharks unless they have to find a way to get around them. Vision directed, they jump into the ocean and learn how to swim because they are world changers.
Wishing all of you a lovely month of March.
