I'm Thankful for Memories

     Memories mean a lot to me, and they are the second thing on my list of things I'm thankful for. For the longest time, I couldn't remember the last time I'd seen my foster sister who turns four tomorrow. I was able to see her yesterday. She was in a carseat, but she was smiling. She said "I love you" and gave me a hug and kiss.


     Later that night, I wrote down every detail I could remember from seeing her. I didn't want to forget. Those memories are good. I needed to do that, but it also hurt.

     Being thankful for those blessings don't always make you feel good, but thanking God for them is always great. That's why I make an effort to see blessings every single day. I've written some of them here at Equals Enough.

    So be thankful for all the little blessings.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

Two different characters told two different stories that only intertwined at crucial points throughout the plot. Before I even began, I knew that it would be a difficult story to write without causing mass confusion. 
I'd never written a story anything like this before (and even now, I'm editing to change one of the storylines completely), but I knew one thing:  {My time-line could never back-peddle.}

This would prove an annoying decision, but one that drastically improved my story. Every story is different, but I can outline the logistics of what I did to make this linear timeline possible. 
First, decide your primary main character. With two stories, not just two perspectives on the same story, your story will appear to have two main characters. You…
