DSCF4538dDrama and the importance of suspense, these are so faithfully intertwined to bring a piece of writing to life with a vibrant flow of energy. The intrigue is built up from describing the events around the corner as though on the periphery ever slowly creeping in as the disturbance steps closer into view, one fraction at a time. This is where I tend to get so excited that I stop writing because I become carried away in the thrill of the build up to the main event.

I do not see this as a problem from the point of view that if I get excited about my own writing then that energy is likely to flow straight onto the page. However, at times it can be quite annoying since I am the type of person that would rather hide behind the couch than watch a scary part in a movie. Unfortunately I do not have this luxury when writing so I have to find a way to balance my instinctive desire to run away with the joy of writing on the edge of my comfort zone. This is where I have to admit that for me this threshold is rather low but all the same I think it is far more important to bring that wave of emotion into the story.

When I describe conflict I go in with a game plan building up the characters and knowing the situation that has lead the characters there. Then I stop and take a step back, to a certain extent I let go. Why? When I am writing about drama there are some things that are better left unknown I prefer to let the conflict do the talking and there are times when even I cannot predict the outcome.

There is something about conflict that I love to loath, while part of me wants to run away the other part gets so carried away in the excitement that I forget to be afraid.
