Why do I use this quote?

Hello World Out There World!

If you’ve been following this blog since its creation the quote, “Every great person was a child once,” will be familiar. This has been the main quote used when it comes to talking about the Prophecy Six Series, but I never have explained why I chose this quote.

To understand the quote I’ll need to break down the series a little bit for you, and those who haven’t read the first book so everyone is one the same page:

Prophecy Six is a YA fantasy about a group of children given powers from the Gods to bring change to their world filled with chaos and war. Each book of this six book series is focused on finding members of ‘The Six’ and trying to find their purpose in this incredibly vague prophecy.

The first book focuses around the discovery of the first child – Child of the Light – who becomes the main protagonist for the series.

The book series follows the MP (Main protagonist) through a variety of challenges that shape her into the leader The Six need to complete the Prophecy. The readers basically get to see her change and grow from a scared, abandoned survivor of a murdered people into someone people admire and strive to become.

This quote also encompasses the rest of The Six.

They’re all children and all have potential to become someone great even if the world underestimates them. It is with each others help and from those that they befriend along the way that they grow to shape the world for the better… or for the worse – reflective of how our world works.

Our leaders, our role-models were children once. They were all doubted, challenged, shaped, lost – and it took someone believing them, seeing their potential, that helped them become those that shaped our world.

That is why I chose that quote because every child has the potential to become someone great even if the world is against them.

Escaping the Ordinary

Hello World Out There World!

Escaping the ordinary, we try to do that everyday without even realizing it. We watch shows about other peoples lives, explore the internet, write, paint, socialize. We are afraid to be ordinary and although we may think we live ordinary lives the truth is we don’t.

Every day billions of people have billions of unique experiences. No ones life is the same. No ones life copies another.Sure, you may work at the same job or live in the same neighborhood but we all don’t have the same views or conversations.

We are not ordinary.

Still, there is the mundane events that to us appear to be ordinary. I know that I write for the sake of escaping the world because I find it boring. I escape to a world of my creation because I can have characters do things in that world that can’t be done here – like fight dragons, or use magic. But if they were real, I’m sure they would think their lives were as ordinary as mine.

As much as we want to escape the ordinary we do not see that we are not ordinary at all.

We each have skills others may not have. We each have a way of seeing the world others may not share. Our drive to be different, our drive to be extraordinary is strong in all of us… even though we don’t see how extraordinary we all already are.
