Life is made up of moments. Big ones. Little ones. Powerful ones. There are moments that define you. Moments that reveal who you are– sometimes even to yourself. For me, a good story is built around these moments. I recently did a blog post on the subject for WriteOnCon. Here’s an excerpt:
I remember watching the Olympics many years ago and an American swimmer was being interviewed. I don’t remember his name. I guess it’s not important. What is important is that he was heavily favored for his event. So much so, that in the interview, he spoke as if it were a given that he’d be taking home the gold. If I recall, he said something along the lines of the following:
“I don’t need the medal. I’m going to give the medal to some people who I care a great deal about. They can have the medal, that’s for them. I have the moment. The moment is everything.”
