Igor Got Loose…

Have you ever started writing only to look back and see disaster? That’s where I’m sitting right now. I hit the 100 page mark completely by surprise and decided to go back and read my amazing masterpiece.

It looked more like a Picasso-style Frankenstein than the Michelangelo’s David I was going for.

I seem to be at a constant war with myself. The characters are flat, the story is stuck. I can see everything in my head. I know where I want it to go, but the road to getting there just isn’t up to par. So, I’m headed for revising. Hopefully I can bring my characters out of disaster and in to… well, awesomeness. (If that wasn’t a word, it is now.)

In the mean time, I’m going to try and suffocate those annoying voices in my head that keep telling me to give up. If only insanity wasn’t a requirement for this craft…

About S. G. Ricketts

I am a dreamer. This page holds all of the dreams and desires and hopes and wishes of the first of my two dreams: to share my imagination with the world. For those of you who have read a book or written a book, these stories are not merely words on a page. They are living, breathing creatures, worlds so compellingly real that you can smell the sweat and feel the rain. This is what I want to share ...with all of you. Yes, becoming rich and famous would be fabulous. I won't deny that. However, it would be so much more satisfying to see my book in the hands of someone on the bus, hear my book talked about at a restaurant, see a cluster of fan-art. I want to inspire the mind to imagine different worlds and different situations. If I can achieve that, I will have achieved my dream.
