Where to find a story

We all know the feeling, right?

Trying to come up with a story? Trying to find a story? It usually involves going around and around in ever decreasing circles while scribbling out half-hearted intros until we give up in vain.

We tell ourselves that if we can just find a story, everything will be alright. How hard can it be? It’s got to be here someplace, right?

Or we can take another approach. We can let a story find us.

Sometimes it may be faint breeze, lost and alone. A story we’ll want to follow regardless.

Other times it may be a strong wind that almost knocks us over. A story that pursues us.
