Do you feel powerless?

I suppose we all do, from time to time. It can feel we have no control over our own lives, especially if you’re a “wage slave”, spending most of your week at the beck and call of others.

Then again, being a writer can be very empowering. In no other aspect of our lives do we have complete control than when we are creating. The worlds we bring into being belong to us, even if we “borrow” details from the actual world we live in. We alone control our characters’ destinies. Events, adventures, tragedies, triumphs and lovers parted and then reunited are ours to do with as we will.

So next time you feel your life is spiraling of of control, remember you are Queen or King of your own lands and ruler of all you survey.
