Have you ever tried doing something you’ve always believed you couldn’t do?

How did you feel about that moment when you finally chose to take that step?  Did you even feel like you had a choice?  Was it simply the best choice you could make in a sea of bad choices?  Or did you boldly step forward, knowing that you needed to try this thing, to prove something to yourself or to another.

How did you feel?

This is the place our characters need to be…  maybe they actively want this thing you’re having them do.  Maybe they dread it horribly.

But they need to change, to be frightfully aware that they are leaving their comfort zone.

Because that is where the story is…  and we want to hear about it.

Round 3 Sunday Check-in 8

Did you hear that?

Whoosh!

There it is again…  the sound of Time racing past.  I mean, seriously…  that gal has some serious track shoes on.

Here in the great Northeast as we call it, summer is pretty much done.  Oh, there will be a few small bursts of warm weather as fall coasts in, but the balmy, so-called “lazy days” are over for another year.

Changes in seasons, at least for me, seem to urge personal changes.  I’m starting to look over my recent months and how well I’ve maintained my goals, looking for improvements and places I should consider a new track.  It’s a good time to do so.  We have plenty of time left in this Round of Words to finish with a bang.

So, whether you’re happy with things as they are or ready to make some changes along with the weather, tell us at the linky or on our Facebook page:
