Now that I'm not as rushed with writing 5 pages a day, I'm taking more time to shape the story. Like I showed yesterday, I'm using the storyboarding advice from the Pixar guy. Using that structure, even though it's been used for thousands of years, I think will help me tell a captivating story.
I am writing this book because God has done an amazing work in my life. From the stage and preaching I've shared my story and people's lives have been changed. Scripture says that we overcome by the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony. This book is the word of my testimony and I believe it will help people overcome. In my story, I will deal with themes like fitting in, rejection, selfishness and redemption. I know it will connect with people. The story must be told. Plus, growing up as a Sri Lankan in Minnesota has led to incredible tales of unique juxtaposition. If this book isn't read by a large audience, at least my kids will know the beginnings of their spiritual heritage.
