I like to name things. I’ve named my guitar (Val), my ukulele (Ricardo), and my first laptop (Ruby). So naturally, I wanted to come up with a killer name for my blog.
I came up with Narrative Spark because of my first year of college as a creative writing major. The name is a play on “narrative arc,” which is a term we used probably every class in my creative writing workshop. It refers to the course of action in a story: rising action, climax, and falling action. A huge part of creating a good story is having your narrative arc be dynamic and not just a boring straight line.
This blog is my narrative, my story. And right now, it’s all rising action.
This blog is also a place to share my ideas, passions, and new-found knowledge. Hopefully it sparks your creativity, your passion, and your inspiration!
