The Backstory: This story is a fictional narrative based on The Island Storytelling framework. The start of the story came about as a result of my season of recovery and healing from several challenging years. As part of my healing process, I wrote three fictional scenes, as found in part one below. It was a metaphor for my life experiences. In February 2015, I posted part one to Facebook and received positive feedback and multiple requests to continue the story. I proceeded and continued to write the narrative, one part at a time. I suspect it'll eventually end up as my first published fictional book.
