The Parable of the Shoemaker: Part 1

A Parable About Writing…

Once there was a girl who loved shoes. And more than anything else in the world, when she grew up, she wanted to become a shoemaker.

So as she got older, she attended the best seminars and workshops that taught how to make shoes. She studied late into the night, reading every book she could find about how to make shoes.

Eventually, finally, she felt enough confidence to make a pair of shoes on her own. She decided to make a little pair of blue jogging shoes. They would be just perfect for a little boy to wear to play. As she worked, she showed the shoes to other shoemakers and received their tips and suggestions for improvement. She took every helpful hint to heart and worked to make her shoes the best she could design.

Finally, her first pair of shoes was finished. All her friends agreed they were perfect! She decided to market the shoes and sell them.

Come back soon for Part 2 of The Shoemaker!
