I've been saying less online recently because I'm in one of those phases where I have turned inward. I'm reading a lot, listening a lot, and especially digging into a story. This story is the thing I'm listening to most of all. Where does it need to go? Will it come together?
tend to find the answers to story problems within the story. External
sources can guide or inspire me, but the line I need to follow has to be
within the story already; I just have to find the natural extension of
it. Anything I impose from the outside looks pasted-on, forced.
However, finding that loose end and recognizing the proper angle of the continuing line is more difficult than one would imagine.
So mostly, at the moment, I'm listening.
