It’s about writing. Of course. But isn’t it also about Life? It’s always about Life and Relationships and how the dynamics of interaction create the stories that make Life what it is. Out of those dynamics come love, heartache, hope, inspiration and achievement. A fiction story is about all of that and reaches into another dimension as well: imagination. Where would we be without it?
I wondered about Imagination and how it works as I sat down to write my ‘About’ page. As writers we can pull all sorts of inspiration and ideas together to make up the story we want to weave but without Imagination the stories wouldn’t go far. And it’s not just Imagination that makes a story grow. What about Emotion?
Emotion, I find, is the tide upon which Imagination flows. It’s like a sea and if I can find myself writing while the tide is in, my imagination floats along with the swells and waves until it reaches the shore. And then some. Because upon that shore is another idea. Anyways I should get into the boat now and take up my paddle.
