…to prove it. But, as I rode on and practiced more, I got better and became great at riding my bike. The same principle applies with freedom. You have to fall a few times, suffer some bruises, and learn from those mistakes. It shows growth and that growth will lead you to discover your true voice and help you along the way.
What a powerful piece! There were so many gems; I don't know where to begin.
First, I liked how you used the quotes as a table of contents to your story. I was confused at first, but when I realized it - I thought it was creative, and I am borrowing it. :)
Second, there is so much wisdom here that I feel I have to read your story a couple more times on different days with a different mind-set to absorb fully. I hope most readers decide to do the same.
Third, the formatting was great! I really enjoyed the pace.
One suggestion: You may consider adding a fifth tag at the bottom of your story. This way, it is suggested to more readers. The tag "writing" is trendy.
Thank you for sharing this fantastic piece and for choosing FELLOWSHIP WRITERS to feature it in.
