Thursday Thoughts: Universal Players

So. I live in my head. Because there are intersting people who also live there. Some of them have been around for…a loooong time. Some are new acquaintances. They all have stories to tell about their lives but before I corner them and draw those stories out, the Universe describes what goes on pretty well.

Don’t you just love ’em, Silver?

Everyone. Absolutely everyone.

They’re all scurrying around so. All planning and scheming and dreaming. Defending, proving, and justifying. Laughing, crying, and feeling. All behaving, more or less, as you expect them to…

Ah yea-a-ah, they do that a lot…

Of course they have total freedom, Silver, with their own thoughts, expectations, and decisions. But many of these play off yours, like a baseball off a bat… Like, you know, “build it and they will come.”

In my case though, it’s “WRITE it and they will come.” Hopefully. I’ve mentioned before that I’m driven to write. Sometimes that drive is stronger and the words flow and characters become alive–for me and I hope my readers as well. Sometimes, the drive ebbs and the words stay in my head rather than getting translated to my fingertips where they rest on my keyboard. I’d write even if no one else ever read another of my books. I wouldn’t be very happy because…yeah. I have a bit of an ego. I WANT people to buy and read my stories. I want them to care about the characters, to “live” the stories right beside those make-believe folks spilling from my imagination. So hopefully, I’ll write it, and y’all will come. Because yeah. I do just love ’em. 🙂

  1. I’ll definitely be there. =o)

  2. Writers write to be read,
    whether its only their eyes or the masses, when things fall in place.
    alot of times with me it was to get those emotions and turmoil pouring onto the pages, lightning the load of my heart and soul. It still is
    in alot of ways on my short pieces ( i call my ink on my blog)
    Story characters are now, hey I need a moment, can we have a sleepover its gonna be awhile, etc… 😊
    I do a HELL OF A LOT OF READING- MC still dominates at of them. Who doesn’t like a badass Alpha straddling a Harley who leaves you in a puddles??
    Some writers entertain, help escape life 101 even for a few hours. But some make you feel
    you are right THERE!!!!!
    Silver, you take us there, clubhouses, ranch land in OK, and Scorched Earth.
    Sorry to get all wordy.
    Have a great day.
