Everyone has to start somewhere. Yul Brynner in The King and I, fascinated me when I first saw it. He was so majestic but uncultured. Deborah Kerr was so regal yet so naive. Together they managed to change a nation. Like those two characters, I think the relationship between a writer and their story is all about the dance.
Some writers grab their stories and do the jitterbug. Fingers flying across the keyboard, words are clashing together in a mad dash to get to the ending. The problem with this type of dance is that it's easy to fall out of step with your partner and end up on the floor.
Some writers do the Mr. Roboto kind of dance where every word is so precise that all the creativity has been sucked out of the story. Technically, everything looks fine, but in the reader's world there is no life inside the words and therefore no interest in actually reading them.
But then there are the writers who have that happy marriage between words and thoughts. Blending, dipping, swaying together until visions and story become one in a beautiful display of art and creation. You know what I mean. You've been there. Now, all you have to do is answer the question...
Shall we dance?
