The Ripple Effect
Like ripples in water, our actions, no matter how slight, expand outward, bumping into other ripples. The individual ripple may weaken and eventually subside altogether, but the other ripples are no less affected.
At the center, the main SPLASH in this little analogy of mine, has to be Agnes Harper, the eccentric widow with the kleptomaniac tabby and the annoyingly chatty parrot. I really love this character and want to find her a worthy home among the pages of a finished novel, and it's so hard to be patient as I try to figure out how best to assemble this latest work. But I really want to flesh out Agnes and the rest of the populace of my fictional town of Berryville. So I have a feeling I'll be working on this project for years to come!
So MEANWHILE, my only outlet for writing has been this blog, and that's gonna have to sustain me until all these puzzle pieces fit together and I can figure out how to get all these ripples to harmonize.
And when I figure it out, it will make for a great novel!
