|The "story" is an ongoing process of which an author creates and captures an|
experience. That experience is up to the author as they create the story...the
story doesn't create them. To create a harmonius, passionate, compelling
story, it is important to focus where they are taking the main character as
opposed to where the main character seemingly wants to take them. What I
mean by that is this. What seems like obvious reactions to the author by the
main character being influenced by circumstances and interactions in the story, may
be trapped thinking on the author's part.
It may even be falsley understood that in most circumstances, the main character must react a certain way based on what the other players in the story will accept or what the forces actingupon the main character, seemingly dictate. These kind of
perceptions can create a locked and rigid story.
When an author escapes mediocre mindedness and sees the story as a scape of
infinite possibilities, untied to expectations or entanglements from the past,
present or future, then and only then does the author break free and create a
truely magnificent story unencumbered by other author's expectations and
what some settings seemingly dictate.
If the author, though, continues to dwell on horror stories, even while seeking
to write stories based in paradise, the ongoing writing process will continue to
resonate with horror stories, as the pen is a willing slave to where the
author's mind is being focused. It comes down to the true intention of the author. What are the author's intentions of writing their story. Are they writing out of fear for lack of rent.
Are they writing for admiration from other writers, seeking attention. Or,
are they writing from a place of total freedom and openness, a place where
anything is possible and grand mastery comes with ease and grace. Are they
totally in control of their story or are they allowing other's to influence it.
As an author it is imperative that you take ownership of your story, all the
chapters, every word and nuance. Then and only then will you see fit to
change what needs to be changed and nurture what needs to be nurtured. A
grand story awaits when the author is the creator of their own story.
