Writers know that plot line is what makes a story interesting. Isn’t the same true of real life too?
Plot line is what drives a story. It’s what motivates characters to do things, what the journey of their life entails, and where the story begins and ends. The plot line is the story. And this applies to just about everything, especially our own “mundane” human lives.
I put mundane in quotation marks not because I am pretentious and use quotes to seem cool, but because our lives are anything but mundane. Despite not skydiving everyday and watching TV being our favourite pastime, each person has a fascinating plot line to their own life. I know, it surprises me too. I spent two weeks watching every episode of Law & Order: SVU.
