I’ve noticed I often have images of how things should be that other people don’t see. I can become frustrated by them not getting it. In some cases, it took time, sometimes a little and sometimes a lot of time, but people started coming around to what I imagined. In other cases, I had to let it go. Maybe it just wasn’t meant to be, or I was wrong.
Writing requires great vision, particularly a novel, to have to stick with a concept and create a world and have the multiple characters act in a way that makes sense of it. It can be hard to discern what is good, what is bad, and what just needs more developing to make sense, but that is part of the process. Hopefully, one day I’ll figure it out. 🙂
