On Completeness, Incompleteness and Stories

Check out Award-Winning Author Marion Dane Bauer's blog post, Two Disparate Thoughts.

It's intriguing to consider not just our own completeness and/or incompleteness, but our characters' as well!

As Marion writes,

And though it’s true that, if there were no needing, no longing, we might not have wars—either in our homes or between nations—it’s equally true that without our profound incompleteness we also wouldn’t have stories.
And so it's a craft lesson as well.

Thanks Marion!

And thanks as well to Cynthia Leitich Smith for her amazing blog, where I found this link!

Illustrate and Write On,
