And the Christmas Day epilogue to my holiday comedy/horror is officially in the works. I don’t like to write too much at one time. Any time I do I run the risk of rambling on and creating plot holes that didn’t occur to me while I was “in the zone”. Then I end up having to erase the last few paragraphs and that’s just a waste of words. I prefer to take my time and sculpt the sentences and let the story develop carefully around the art of my craft. This makes me an odd ball in writing. 90% of all writers stick to simplicity: just telling the story. But that’s not what I love about writing. I love the craft: the word play. I love piecing together creative ways of describing or unfolding a scene through words. Anyone can tell a story. And plenty of people can tell it well. But telling it and writing it are two different crafts, and writing artistically is another in itself. Unfortunately, 95% of readers could give a hairy shit less about beautiful writing. They’re in it for the stories, and the easier a story is to read the better. It makes sense, especially from a business perspective, to simplify and make your work as reader-friendly as possible. The more people who can read it comfortably, the more people you have a chance at selling it to. But I’ve never been much for business. I’ve always been in it (life) for the art. One day I’ll likely have to compromise my craft for a shot at more dough since that’s the world we live in. But until I know I can’t do it my way, I at least gotta try staying true to me and what I love. Fingers crossed that the world is sick of the mundane and eager for unique. -z
