“We’re all stories, in the end. Just make it a good one, eh?”
— The Eleventh Doctor as written by Steven Moffat
At the end of this week of Doctor Who inspired wisdom, a thought about the end.
This pretty sums up the goal of life, doesn’t it? Just make it a good story, however you may define good: comfortable, happy, philanthropic, productive, adventurous.
A good story doesn’t mean unnecessary drama, histrionics, reality television tricks. It means solid plot, a character we can root for, and a satisfying ending.
Strive for these and you’re on the right path.
