Creating a Story

First comes the thought,
Something special on your mind.
Choosing the right words,
Sometimes not easy to find.

Thoughts need to be written down,
Starting with paper and ink.
The story needs to develop,
To make the reader think.

Every story has a beginning,
Then a middle and an end.
The story is created
By the message that you send.
– Nelson R. Locher
