Have you ever read through an incredible scene or an epic reveal in a story that leaves you sitting there stunned and confused for a moment, quietly asking yourself: “how?”
I have lost count of the number of times George R.R. Martin left perplexed by the mastery of his character arcs.
Because, when it is all said and done, writing a story where absolutely every character holds a valuable stake to a bigger conflict is always easier said and done.
As a writer, I find myself often at fault for falling in love with a character, leaving another rather two-dimensional when placed in comparison to the other.
I also find myself getting lost in a big picture that I’ve envisioned. I know a bit of Thorne’s back story, and how it ties with Reaver, and I know how they will interact Jack and Anne, but how will they cross paths?
Even with a journal, I find myself frantically flipping through pages to find one bit of information to tie along with another.
This #WeddingWednesday I'm day-dreaming of sharing poetry for the future brides and grooms in the world. For vows, signs, and tapestries for ceremony backdrops.
Can you see it?
It would be quite lovely, wouldn't you think?
