Good Narrative Principles



Picture a standard issue scene in a “Bible Thumping” film. The crippled child hobbles towards the Minister/Preacher. Their eyes growing milky wide as the Minister/Preacher summons the Holy Spirit and then…lo! The child tosses aside the crutches. Takes a wobbly first step. Then another. The congregation, witnessing a genuine miracle, gasps in unison.
We chose science. We took our deepest fears, wrapped them in a bow and tried hard to forget them, thinking, she will beat the odds. She’s got to.

Turns out what we needed was a miracle.
