Versatility

One thing I’ve learned is to be versatile. No matter if it is in my daily life or in my writing. Things come up in both you don’t expect and you have to know how to bend what you have planned to suit the unexpected things. For example the other day I had my dinner all planned out. I was leaving from work in my day job when I thought of what I would eat for dinner when I got home. I remembered that I had some turkey pieces in the freezer and I figured I would make that with some rice. However when I got home I opened the freezer and saw no turkey. It was then I realized I had eaten the last of it. I had my mind set on the turkey but since I didn’t have any I had to come up with an alternate. Made chicken instead and it was just as filling.

This is what I mean about being versatile. It is the same in my writing. Sometimes I have a plan in my mind how a story will go but when I write all of a sudden it changes. I’ve learned to go with the changes and let the story go where it must. Believe me when I try to stop a flow it gets me stuck. So by going with it I am able to write. More times than not it is a good flow. This is what is happening in my latest book. The story is taking me places I didn’t expect and it is a great thing. I can’t wait to see where it will go next.

By learning to listen to my versatile side I’ve experienced lots of great things.

What happened today that made you go with your versatile side?

    We had the Prom last night and boy did my verstaivle side come out. I had to leave a class and come home before someone who is not so versatile stepped in.

    Hi Taig Forever I do sounds really good adding it to my wishlist.

    Boy, I know what you mean about having to be versatile. I had the same prob today with lunch as you had with your dinner the other day! I was counting on making taco salad, got everything out and then realized I had no more lettuce. I had made green salad a few days before and used it then, had forgotten that small detail. Sooo ended up making a quck meatloaf instead.
