Oh, the pen may indeed be mightier than the sword, but the keyboard leaves them both in the dust!
More of a storyteller than a writer, I find myself on the front row in the theatre in my mind (and yes, that spelling is intentional)! Worlds unfold in front of me and I... I am just the first one to record the event.
It didn't use to be that way. It used to be that I spent weeks coming up with outlines and writing a story along those points. The players of this troupe, however, are not the sort to be tied to a script, and they often diverge from the plan telling a story all their own. Turns out they're better at it than I am, so I stay out of the way and maintain my position as the First Audience Member. http://quicksylverpublications.com/
