Smashing and Trashing the rules of writing!
~~We’ve all heard, seen, and read the rules for writers to follow. “Write what you know.” “Don’t start your story with a dream.” “Don’t end a sentence with a preposition.” “Don’t begin a sentence with a conjunction.” But I refuse to sit on the bleachers and watch everybody else breaking the rules and having a swell o’ time doing it! I want to get in on the game. I want to break the boundaries. I want to create worlds and characters that I would never have known had I not tested the limits and smashed those rules like the irritating bugs they are.
And because I’ve chosen this life…I am drowning in words. My head is overrun with ideas. Voices scream at me to write their tales. My mind’s eye sees and hears so much that I am literally drowning in words! I’m not complaining, though. Like any good relationship, this one is a love/hate kind as well. At times, I believed I could put it on the back burner. And at the most insane moments, I truly thought I could just quit writing altogether. Sometimes I still think I may just give it up. It AIN’T gonna happen. EVER. So I embrace the chaos of living, loving, and being a writer.
