If you ask me I think some fictional work is more often real than not. In every creative’s work is them sharing part of themselves.The greatest creative of them all did the same too. He created each of His pieces with an utmost detail, each very different but each greatly beautiful and each bearing His mark. Sometimes I play this reality out like a scene from a telenovela. Each character very different but important .
I tend to imagine what it would be like, to live a day in a creatives mind. They have the ability to take the worst situations they go through and turn them into some of the best fictional stories. They tell their story without telling you about themselves. I don’t mean to be biased but if you asked me I think they have the best gifts. It is the first ever talent in the world. If you recall “Let there be light.”
The brains behind the telenovela
This was meant to be another fictional story like a scene picked from a telenovela. Let talk about the brains behind the telenovela instead. If you think about it keenly you’ll see what I am talking about. No don’t look at some major guns being pulled out and screaming this is me and this is my story. They might have such pieces but today let’s talk about every other piece that doesn’t seem like theirs.
In each story they will be a protagonists and antagonist who more often than not are the main characters. If you asked me honestly speaking I can’t fully tell you what those words mean, but I will use them regardless. Mr and Ms Google or is it Alexa or maybe Siri will probably let me know what it means later on.
Look at it this way sometimes they may not play the main character they might play a supporting role or even probably make an appearance like the late Stan Lee . The bottom line is they will always be part of them in it. Let’s switch the scene a bit from the writers world or the “creatives” world and focus on the Scene not picked from a telenovela.
We are all creatives…
The thing is in this world we are all creatives. In your entire existence you will always leave a part of you in everything you touch. Yes it is as small as your fingerprint or as massive as the hearts you touch. I know this sounds like some Harry Potter movie where Voldamort has horcurxes. Let’s try and look at it this way instead.
If you wouldn’t have part of you in anything you do, be it your work or a conversation or a relationship, who would ever have known it was you. The thing is sometimes we try to tell our story, but no one will look beyond the surface. We tend to take it at face value which I would say is very deceiving. Allow me to disagree with Wahenga and state “Not everything you see is what you get.”

The truth of the matter is most of the time we won’t be the protagonist especially in our own stories. We may always end up as the villain. Take a look at the Son of God He was treated like an antagonist yet He was the protagonists in the story. If you ask me I think sometimes this titles are within us, if at any point He would have decided that He was actually the antagonist salvation story would be a mirage. For a man who was entirely a protagonist and was made to look like an antagonist is quit remarkable how he handled it if you ask me. The fact that He took the role and executed it perfectly. It’s just like a scene out of a telenovela.
We have a corrupted nature and we will always have both Aymar and Maura Duran (Storm over paradise). Probably I should say Maria or Barbra Serrano Zulbaran (Secreto_de_amor). The choice of which character we choose to leave a mark with that is entirely on us. The character you are most likely to identify with eventually is the one you become just like the scene picked from a telenovela.
You are born looking like your parents, but die looking like your decisions and knowledge.Apostle Joshua Selman.
The choices we make from how we treat people, to how we react to situations determines the character we play in this program called life. As much as we try to make excuses for ourselves truth is our behaviors are not cast on stone meaning they can be changed at any given point. We have the chance to make amends of the way we are perceived or the way we treat people. We have the chance to make things right.
I will leave you with the questions which character are you playing? Who picked it for you? Are you okay playing that character? In telenovelas you really don’t get to choose they pick it for you but in life that choice is entirely on you.
