The Drifter

The interesting thing about the creation of a written story is that the writer is always a part of it. More than an observer, the writer drifts in and out of the scene, weaving themselves into the characters' lives. We come and go, but they remain trapped in their setting like toys arranged in a dollhouse waiting to be moved, waiting for something to happen. Each time we immerse ourselves, the details become more real. The sounds grow clearer and the air around the characters breathes life into the story and somehow you need to find a way to put in on the page. The art of writing is a labor of love, and like love, one must be dedicated to their partner.
