Short post for tonight. Was working on trying to get one of my computers to be happy on the network. This took so long I was left with no time to work on a post for tonight. I tried to write a few things, but I kept going into very dark places very quickly. That left me with a good question. As a writer I try to get inside people’s minds and put their essence onto a written page. This can be fun, but it can also be disturbing. Some of my characters scare me. Some of them make me want to punch them in the face. Others come off as arrogant or untrustworthy. The question is when you visit that place inside of you to find where those characters live, do you bring them closer to the surface? Do they begin stalking your persona, trying to dominate, or threaten your current mindset? I am sure my dark storytelling tonight was because I am tired and I should be going to bed, but since I am tired and ready to go to bed does that leave me more vulnerable for that pace of foulness to come out. Interesting things to dream on. Stay writing my friends.
