Shape of the story

Stories are both obvious and illusive: Sometimes we are telling our own stories, other times we are not.

"Good" stories have a recognisable shape. Conflicts/Resolutions. Goods/Bads. Rights/Wrongs.

Those are not our own stories. Our own stories are messy.

When the story I am telling starts to take shape, that is how I know it is not mine anymore.
