Take Heart, Take Hope . . .
I don't know about you, but I LOVE stories that engage both heart and mind, that touch my emotions but also make me think, and that's what I aim to write. But in addition to engaging heart and mind, what I really want to do is to foster hope. I think that's a reasonable goal, because fiction is not all make-believe. It comes from the dark, desperate moments, the epiphanies, the hopes and joys, the trials and triumphs we all experience in life. There are so many ways we can share our experiences with one another, and lend each other the gift of hope. I love being able to do that with story.
And when a story can bring hope and encouragement to someone else, I find great joy in that. In fact, I think this brings me more joy than any other aspect of being a writer.
So as you read, I hope you'll take heart, take encouragement, and take hope!
