I confess that I wanted to have a nice well thought out post for you today, but life got a little bit in the way. Not to worry! I plan on having new content posted on Saturday. For any of you who write, or just enjoy discussing ways to improve your writing, this post will be for you.
There is a difference between having a story that is plot driven, and a story that is character driven. I wasn’t aware of this difference until a few years ago. I also didn’t know that some people believe it determines the quality of the work based on how your story is being driven. This conflict will also be discussed in the post on Saturday.
So, I hope I’ve got you all sorts of excited to talk about the technical side of story telling! I’m sure you’re just quivering in anticipation…
On a side note, I went to a concert last night. It was the band Walk the Moon. I only knew one of their songs, but it was really good, and it has been on the radio station I listen to, so that was rather cool. One of their opening bands was called Smallpools, and they were really good. We bought their c.d., and I’m listening to it right now. It’s good music, and I’m sure you can find some of their songs on the internet, or maybe all of them.
