the protagonist

Some people we meet in our lives become cast members of our story. Some have recurring themes. Some are just cameos, special appearances and seasonal characters. This transient place has transient plots and twists, we celebrate it with an ending, and we meet those who fit in our stories at the end.

The protagonist subscribes a genre for himself, and he knows that he is better than a romantic comedy. His story was about self-realization, a coming-of-age film about a boy who makes or breaks himself, who goes against all odds to achieve his dreams. His story will inspire others to be like him.

He has to go through bad situations to get to somewhere good, but if he knows the destination is beautiful, he pays no mind that the journey gets rough because he gets going.

There will be obstacles to overcome, walls to break, rivers to cross, mountains to climb, in order for the protagonist to get there. It wouldn't be a good story if the protagonist instantly got what he wanted, he has to go through adversaries to realize his dreams, in a way that makes him ready for it.

There are many side plots which will enable the protagonist to pull himself together and march forth to the destination. Here is where the plot thickens. This is the pivot of the story, which evolves from the side plots.

I am a mere side plot to many stories. In alot of stories, my role has ended. In some, I have yet to begin.

Where do I belong in your story? Only time will tell.
