On Not Being Too Tied to Desired Outcomes

We can’t be too tied to desired outcomes. As writers, we of all people should understand the need for plot twists.

Here’s an awesome reminder that the adventure’s probably the better thing to savor! Even though we would not turn down the whole getting what want thing…

“I saw the world. I learnt of new cultures. I flew across an ocean. I wore women’s clothing. Made a friend. Fell in love. Who cares if I lost a wager?”
