Journeys

This week, we've been talking about story structures.  One structure that is integral to Western culture is the story of a journey.  Most often, these journeys not only involve a change in location but also a change in heart (often as the result of some sort of quest or mission). 

Since the holiday season is filled with travel, this week's challenge is to write about a journey, anything from a round-the-world adventure (as I know some of you have had!) to a quick trip to the grocery store. 

The goal is to use the literal journey as a metaphor for a figurative one.
  • A trip to the other side of the planet and back may teach you who you really are (a journey to find one's self).
  • A run to the grocery store may not only be about finding nourishment for your family's body but for its soul as well (comfort food, anyone?).
  • A visit to Grandma's over the holiday may remind you of your own days at your grandmother's house (a trip down memory lane).
Can't wait to read what you have to say!
