Musings

In my experience, writing about the fantastic is predicated on a willingness to dive into the unknown.  Few things are as thrilling as channeling unfamiliar concepts and worlds through my mind.  While I humble myself by openly admitting “I don’t know,” I embolden myself by saying, “I’m willing to try.”

        I had a bunch come drifting out of nowhere, and I thought ‘Where did you lot come from???’.
        They just smiled and passed me by to get into action with the heroes.

      • Exactly! I was listening to a writer saying one of the key issues with writing is being willing to write something you didn’t intend; that’s the only way to let your manuscript transcend your “design capability.” I’d say close to half of my stuff came out of nowhere and surprised me after I sat down to write something else.

      • Now that’s what I call ‘cooking’!
        I had an incident recently, and there’s me thinking ‘Where the heck did that come from?’ followed by the experience of the characters involved saying ‘What? Haven’t you been reading the narrative? It’s kind of obvious man!’

      • I honestly think that might be the best part of writing! Yeah fame and riches would be nice, but all you gotta do is look at celebrity suicides to know that those things aren’t be all end all solutions.

      • Well I know what you mean and I know this is next bit isn’t going to answer your question in the way you meant, but if you’ve been following the news, the Dark Tower movie is actually a continuance of the original saga. Roland has the horn in the beginning and Stephen King tweeted it with the caption “last time around…” So awesome!
