“Most great adventures work that way. You don’t plan them, you don’t get all the details right, you just do them.” -Bob Goff, Love Does
Think about a book you love. A story treasured from one generation to the next; one so powerful it offers readers insight each year it’s read.
Stories like those have a funny way of sticking to your heart, like snow on frozen ground. Yet it often seems hard to decipher what qualities connect them all to greatness. Is it a complex prose? Captivating dialogue? Or, a meticulously planned storyline?
But when I think of my all-time favorite stories like Harry Potter, The Alchemist, or the Narnia series, the common theme I find is the unexpected adventure their characters find themselves in.
