Words, Wizards, Superheros

I love words.


That makes me a wizard.
That makes me a superhero.
That makes me a builder.
That makes me a collector.
That makes me an artist.

Words give me my own magic.
Words give me my own power.
Words give me my own tools.
Words give me my own treasures.
Words give me my own masterpieces.

Then, my spells can help ... or hurt. 
Then, my powers can save ... or damage.
Then, my tools can build ... or destroy.
Then, my treasures can encourage ... or enrage 
Then, my art can lift ... or bury.

If words are magic,
If words are a superpower,
If words are a treasure,


What side am I on?

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…
