One Small Change – How Wolves Changed Rivers


When wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park  in 1996, an amazing process called a trophic cascade began to take place.

This one small change, changed everything!

Now think of that in terms not just of eco systems but in your own life as well.  Even in your own writing.

This past week  while working on my novel I experienced that cascade affect.  There was one small detail that had been bothering me but I wasn’t sure how to fix it.  When inspiration finally struck, it required one small change to a scene about half way through the book.   That one small change, necessitated changes to scenes in chapters further along.   But not only that…  that one small significant change now becomes the trigger which towards the end of the book carries my characters through to the climax.

What one small change could you make today that would change everything?
