The Writing Process: A Vignette. ~ Candace Magnuson

Why did Jesus Speak in Parables?

A story allows us to feel meaning that we can’t necessarily verbalize. Pictures say a thousand-fold what words can. Images and feelings define belief.

I see my writing as a process of accretion. A spiral spinning fast enough to generate gravity begins to pull in fragments from the ether. As the spiral increases its pull, these fragments swirl and blend with other fragments and in so doing, mold manifestation.

Where it’s going I can’t exactly say but any feedback that would assist it to serve an inspired purpose would be received with profound gratitude.
