Which Story to Tell

How do you know when you’ve got the right story? If you’re like me, you have several stories spinning in your head at the same time, but you can only work on one, possibly two at the same time.

Well, don’t be pragmatic. Don’t pick the one you think you think will sell. That won’t work, unless you have a real passion for the story.

So when you’re in the supermarket queue and you’re trying to concentrate on your shopping, which story pops into your head?

If you daydream a conversation, which character do you talk to?

Which one do you dream about?

One of your stories will force its way through to your pen.

However – don’t be afraid to combine two stories. Or even three. You may find, as you think about it, that what you thought were separate and discrete stories all turn out to be strands of the same story.
