They say you can’t control everything, but I refuse to accept that. Oh, perhaps one human being can’t make everything happen that ought to happen, but you don’t have to do it all alone, after all. One of the delightful things about power is that some leads to more, if you know how to use it.
Everyone loves power, although most people are afraid to take it, and even more afraid to use it. Still, they love it, and they flock to those who do have it and do use it. They’ll do anything you tell them to, give you power over them, just so they can experience the pleasure of power, even if they’re on the puppet’s end of the strings.
You, for instance. What would you like to do for The House of Sarpa?
Would you, at least, begin with participating in the April A-to-Z Challenge by visiting Of Shoes and Ships and Sealing Wax, Of Cabbages and Kings?
BIG P.S. — I was interviewed yesterday on the Story A Day site, because I’ve successfully completed two Story A Day in May challenges and plan to do so again this year. 🙂
