After I wrote the post Externalize, Ripple, Justify, I realized how far I’ve come as a writer. Being able to do what I described there, by free forming events of a story that are centered around a united story significant idea, is a grand achievement. One that almost slipped by without me appreciating the view.

From here, the view is crystal blue, floating ice everywhere. The land beneath me glides through calm seas, which beckoned me to descend deeper.
