Cracking open the shed door

Monday, 14 December 2015

Good afternoon! This is my first shed post. I've been busily working on the manuscript these past few weeks. 

I have a detailed outline, but it's always wonderful to see how your book organically grows during the writing process. You realise that you've used a particular word or image that fits into your whole theme without consciously thinking about it. 

I re-watched the movie Serendipity with John Cusack last night while doing some Sunday night drawing. Serendipity is a prominent theme in my book and I first became interested with the concept while reading Carl Jung's works. 

We live in a world of cause and effect, but occasionally, coincidences and chance events happen that are so significant to us that they seem absurd; almost magical. Jung calls this meaningful coincidence. Jung popularised the concept and named it synchronicity.  

(note: synchronicity and serendipity are very similar concepts. Synchronicity is self-organization based on one's resonance or vibration. Two people, events etc are drawn to that time and place based on a similar intention.  Serendipity is discovery due to spontaneity and usually happens without a direct intention.)

Have you ever had an event happen that was just too perfect to be coincidence?
