The sun sets on another day...
Sunset was amazing, and even more amazing as I enjoyed the eveing and as it passed into night.
I enjoy parables. I was over the top for mythology. A good story is always something that makes you open your eyes, feel good, or a little of both. I usually feel pretty good after figuring out the substories and sub sub stories of tv shows or movies, and the lesson someone wants to tell. I weave things like this into my stories as well, trying to somehow relay a message about something that happened to me, and how to either achieve it or avoid it.
In "Vengeful Son" There are 5 core substories going on at once. I suppose I suffered a little from some of them. Since the books is action adventure, my weaving in of the idea that an assassin can feel true love was perhaps a little risky. The friendship and powerful bond between key individuals is common, but developing that bond is not always defined, and I tried to do so. Abby's relationship with Madison is outside of the storyline, and the time they spend together defines why Michael is now with Abby. Another substory is how a bit of information can be misconstrued, and shaped improperly very easily. A slight story that grows in book 6 is the small town bond in Ivel Kentucky, and how people from small towns build loyalty that surpasses so many in today's society.
No, I am not going to explain it all, read the books, I think you will see those and a few more.
So as the sun sets on another day, the reason I went down this path was simple: Not everything is at it seems. Sometimes a story has many stories going on at once, and maybe for now we should consider that it is true everywhere. Don't always assume what is on the surface is all the story, after all, an iceberg doesn't show much on the surface. Pay attention, and see more every day, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love deeply, and keep your eyes open...
