A Watercolor Quote Giveaway

     So I’m a little excited about getting my first piece of fiction published in a magazine. It’s exciting to have editors enjoy more than just my poetry. I’ll share more details as April draws nearer.
      In celebration, I’m giving away a hand painted watercolor print of William Wordsworth’s quote, “Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.” This quote really explains what it’s like to be a writer and the role of emotions in the stories we craft. The story that will be published soon, “Map Maker’s Hotel,” has emotions as a major driving force.

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…
