Glad you got chosen and nice interview. Thanks for kickstarting the Scape scene in Dayton area, which kickstarted the Michigan scapers and even got me to push Louisville people to continue... that is until the lockdown. Hopefully we will start up again soon.

I have! His works are phenomenal. I own like 75 percent of his existing works and continue to grow my collection every chance I get. Definitely read anything from his cosmere collection. The man has created an entire galaxy to write in with multiple stories on multiple planets that are all interconnected. Its so well done!

FFC #60 - Up and back down - what has happened?

No of course not. But in the same vein you can't really force yourself to write high quality work (at least I've never been able to—anything I force myself to write (most often because of deadlines) sucks). However that does mean you might have to sit on certain ideas until they really click.

I've got tons of stories on the constant back burner just waiting for me to get back into them. One of them was something I hadn't touched in 5+ years that I picked up again recently. My mind was on it, I was thinking about it, and things just clicked so I started writing it again. It's not really the one I should be focusing on at the moment, but if I force myself to write the other when I'm not really into it, it's gonna suck. And I don't want it to suck. I'd sooner it remain unfinished than suck.

This isn't the most efficient way to write professionally, but it's how I've been doing it. Intaking new media and letting my imagination wander helps as well, I think. That can sometimes fill in the missing pieces of something that's just not entirely 100% there yet.

"He that breaks a thing to find out what it is has left the path of wisdom." -Gandalf

The best thing I've ever written was also the first thing I ever wrote. It's complete nonsense, but it's still the best thing in my library. It had fantastic theming in a completely incidental way, while a later story I wrote specifically focusing on theming suffered significantly in other areas. There is something to be said for the charms of effortless writing—telling a story for the sake of telling one as opposed to trying to perfect a craft.

Similarly they say that learning the writing mechanics of comedy will make you a humorless person once you discover the methods and structure. Overanalyzing the skeleton of the story mechanics may take away from the magic and discovery of storytelling itself. It is possible you've lost the joy of writing by turning it from something that's fun to a science project. It's like tearing open a drum to see what makes it bang.

Perhaps the best thing to do is just to forget about perfecting the craft and just wait for inspiration to strike. Whatever story hits you that just needs to be told might not have a great middle chapter or an excellent character arc—at least not intentionally—but I assure you it will still be a great story.
