I am going to let you in on a little secret. I sometimes flip ahead in the pages of the story, because I am so curious about how the conflict in a story will resolve that I want to know that everything will work out right this instant. I always go back and read the middle of the story, but I do so with the knowledge that it will all work out in the end. I am not always good about treasuring the middle of the journey, whether it be the middle of a long car ride, or waiting in the middle of a line. I told a friend that I feel like in this season of my life, I have planted seeds, and I have watered the seeds, and now I am watching the ground waiting for the first signs of growth. There is joy in the middle of the story, and I want to make sure that I am treasuring every minute of it.
This is my thoughts concerning the word middle. Every week we gather for five minutes of free writing fun. You can learn more details about Five Minute Friday at http://katemotaung.com/.
