Of course, I quickly realized that what I thought was my first scene wasn't really the first scene at all, and I had to backtrack to find the true beginning. But for me it was that image, and then I started asking, "What does this character want? What led her here, to this moment?" And then I listened and wrote down what my character whispered. The story is becoming the novella "Bewitched by the Dragon," part of a three- or four-part series that I'm currently drafting.(less)

The Pendulum, the Raven, & the Witch: Navigating the Labyrinth of Story

Discovery. That’s the word I’m using to describe this creative process of mine. “Pantsing” is the slang term in the writing community—you plot, or you fly by the seat of my pants.

But flying by the seat of my pants—pantsing—doesn’t feel right. Part of me knows precisely what I’m doing, where I’m going. But it’s a part of me that doesn’t speak in words (which is seven different shades of ironic,...

Agatha Christie
“I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow; but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.”
Agatha Christie

Ernest Hemingway
“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, many are strong at the broken places.”
Ernest Hemingway

Vladimir Nabokov
“Our imagination flies -- we are its shadow on the earth.”
Vladimir Nabokov

Ursula K. Le Guin
“A writer is a person who cares what words mean, what they say, how they say it. Writers know words are their way towards truth and freedom, and so they use them with care, with thought, with fear, with delight. By using words well they strengthen their souls. Story-tellers and poets spend their lives learning that skill and art of using words well. And their words make the souls of their readers stronger, brighter, deeper.”
Ursula K. Le Guin

Ursula K. Le Guin
“To see that your life is a story while you're in the middle of living it may be a help to living it well.”
