The difficult but never-ending story?

Storytelling is intrinsic to the human mind, but to achieve excellence, authors must move beyond instinct to experiment and master their craft anew.*
(Robert McKee)

Every creative endeavour becomes a realisation of both how limited and unlimited we are.**
(Erwin McManus)

Our lives are made up of stories.

Even the most mundane and everyday life is a story we have either accepted or made up for ourselves.

There are always better stories in us. The thing is, these require attention, time and effort, which is different to being impossible.

Our best stories emerge where what we can presently do and what we are unable to do meet:

May the work fit the rhythm of your soul,
Enabling you to draw from the invisible
New ideas and vision that will inspire.^
