    1. Glad you liked this one! You know I thought it applied to each of us in everyday life though I feel CS Lewis was perhaps thinking of the art of writing. Nevertheless I agree with you!

      1. Well, with writing we can change it all, which is why fretting over early drafts is such a waste of time and energy. But I love the idea that we are the authors of our own stories, and each morning we get to write our day and set a new trajectory for the end. For some that responsibility is terrifying, but if we own that power, we can craft wonderful lives.
