The experience of writing novels often leads the writer to so live the experience that the characters take on a life of their own. They become persons that appear during the course of the author’s waking moments as well at times during slumber. My characters run the gamut of the human experience and in developing them I have learned much. The most compelling lesson is that despite circumstances there are always choices available. This is reinforced by my life separate from writing. Daily I am aware that some lead quiet lives of desperation and yet they often make positive choices despite their lot. Others choose to change their circumstances while some select the”grin and bear it ‘road”. We are all characters in an individual life story and hopefully, despite the challenges, we hold on to the reality that we always have choices.
