Imagination is a wonderful thing. A major reason that many of us write is to realize the unforgettable characters, gorgeous locations, and killer plots bouncing around in our heads.
The only drawback to having a great imagination is that it’s easier to simply imagine an amazing world than to generate words that evoke the same feelings.
Have you ever tried to put words on the page that don’t feel right? Do you have a folder full of half-baked ideas that would certainly become best sellers if you could only find the right words? I certainly do.
Why does it feel so easy to imagine a complicated world while feeling so hard to write about that world?
This is a call for all you plotters. You’re not alone in this battle.
A word after a word after a word is power.Margaret Atwood
