I struggled coming up with a Chance Chat for this week, and I considered re-writing my post from last week or at least editing it, but for now it remains untouched….ANYWAYS.
This week’s choice is completely different than anything I’ve done before. I considered a Mother’s day quote, but none of them seemed quite right especially in relation to my One Little Word for 2015 “Chance”.
We don’t know how things will finish. We can plan all we want, work as hard as possible, and the end is still a mystery. Also, where you choose to end your story can alter the entire feeling of what takes place.
What if the story ends at Midnight? Cinderella is back in her rags, the Prince is searching for a woman who doesn’t exist, and the Stepmother and her daughters continue to be awful.
What if the story extends past Happily Ever After? Does the Stepmother change her ways and become nice? Or is she banished while the sisters recognize the error in their ways and become friends with Cinderella?
Chance, especially in taking a chance, means to see the story out. Don’t close the book, but instead let things play out and see if they can become something more/different.
If the story ended right now what would the theme be? If you let it play out longer would the theme change?
