I thought this was an amazing way of looking at things and it made me start to think about what's going to happen on the next page in the novels about my kids. And what is on the next page of my own novel? I think I know what I'm going to do tomorrow, but that great author in the sky probably has a twist in store. Will there be a cliff-hanger? Hopefully not a literal one.
We are all characters in the novels of our lives. Make sure you stop and check out the details that your author has put in around you sometimes but don't forget to keep turning the pages.
