Have you ever…?

Have you ever…?

Have you ever had a conversation about a situation or a person, and with utter conviction, spoken about something or someone you know who dealt with things in a fantastic manner, or possibly got stuff totally wrong… Then as you get deeper and deeper into that conversation, realize that you actually don’t know that person, or you aren’t familiar with that situation, because it didn’t happen?

Because you were thinking about a book scenario that you read, or a character that you bonded with in a book!!

I was having that conversation (with myself – don’t ask!) this morning, thinking about a certain situation, and how I’d want the conversation to go… But all the comparisons I came up with were fictional!

Go figure!

I guess that must be a sign of a good book though, when things are so real, and characters so lifelike, that you feel you have lived it all!

    character development is very hard
    It takes a lot of trial and error
    Writing it and writing it again
    If your passionate about writing you’ll eventually find your way
    Finding your writing voice is something that I believe your on your way
    When you start to question
    The process has begun

    That blend of reality, memory, and storytelling…it’s the mark of a writer. And it’s a gift. Enjoy it, Ritu. 💖

    That’s the sign of a really good book … now you need to go see the film version! (Then you’ll really get confused) 🙂

Shit Stevie Says

Good Shit, bad shit, funny shit, sad shit. Maybe I'll inspire you! Or maybe I won't... Perhaps I'll talk about worldly matters, or maybe my not so subtle obsession with aliens, or (if you're really lucky) I just might one day give insight on how to make the worlds best sandwich. Guess you'll only find out if you read. So sit back, grab a glass of wine (because there is a 100% chance I indulged in one while writing), and enjoy. Welcome to the enigma that is my brain. My name is Stevie Jackson, and I have shit to say.
