Immerse yourself in the moment, in the world you are building. Sometimes it helps me to think about an aspect of the place rather than forcing the scene. If I'm stuck on what happens next —what actions the character takes — I think about objects in that space, what people are wearing and doing around the main event, what kind of noises there are and where they come from, that kind of thing. It puts you into the place and time, feet on the carpet, hearing the air conditioning whoosh from the vents, looking around with your character(s) and noticing the world around you. (less)

If you could do that in real life, you know what the world would call you, right? A god. (less)

It was a brilliant Friday morning.

Dry grass blades gleamed despite their obvious imperfections and the hard-working field mice all froze as the crows fluttered in. The fat beasts flung their shadows onto the ground, their bodies following as they cackled and strutted to center stage.

Someone important was missing.

“Where’s Ezekiel?” Zachariah cawed.

“Not certain!” Hezekiah cawed back. “Should I as... Read more of this blog post »
