two Makes it better

One can only imagine how exciting it is to be born with a twin—a literal partner since birth and whom you will share a birthday and possibly a room among other things, and even a face. Identical twins would have to live their lives living with someone who looks exactly as them. Identities of the two could be easily mixed up by people outside of the family—and that is something they should learn to live with. Something as petty as getting the blame of the other and being held responsible for a twin’s actions is just one of the challenges. However, it is not as burdensome as sounds to be; in fact, it is rather a bonus double of everything! Double the fun, double the treat, and double the love.

    A bunch of real-life narratives have been shared online—while some can be very humorous, shared stories that are rather unfortunate, there are also a number that are indeed heartwarming. While not everyone has the chance to experience this, it would be to one’s liking to try to get a glimpse of what it could be like to have a twin.

The number of layers of perspectives this certain concept offers a writing opportunity to initiate one’s own unique writing style and approach. The thrill of having a twin despite having none, can be felt through immersing oneself in a worthwhile read.

    This is exactly the track that writer of Foresight and Hunted, Monique Gliozzi, has taken.
