Writing Wednesday: There’s a story in my head and i need to get it out

Someone asked me last night:

What do you do when there is a story in your head and you have to get it out, but you can’t?

Unfortunately our brains are not like faucets where you can turn on the knob and things will leak out the way you want.

We are complex in our minds and creativity is not something that comes easy even though artist make it look like that.

(Or should I say “good” creativity”.)

So when it comes to crafting a good story or whatever is in our heads, we feel we must be like God. It must be perfect, since God created heaven and earth and we must create something just as fantastic.

This is wrong.

There is no perfect story because every story is crafted by a human and that makes it imperfect, yet that is what is so beautiful about the whole thing.

So when you ask me this question, I have to say the only answer to this one is:

To get it out.

Pick up a pencil, pull up a keyboard and punch that baby out like it’s not tomorrow.

If you brain is showing you a story, type whatever you see feel and hear and then let the editor work with you on making it better, but first get it out!


As you can see I bolded and italicized “unfortunately” because I wish there was a way for me to open u a facet and let it pour out.
