In life I think we all wish we could lead a drama-free life. It sometimes feels like my family, not my immediate, there always seems to be some kind of drama. From my sister to whatever made up story she has told recently to something with my brother to something with one of Keith’s brothers. And I’m sure I’m not the only one who has family members who automatically bring with them drama.
But when we sit down to write, and we’re in our own world in our own little bubble and the only drama we have to encounter is the drama we create in our heads that we add to our story. I think every writer will agree with me, we all live for that kind of drama.
Conflict. We all hate having conflict in our lives. Someone dying. Someone going through a divorce. Someone who has a difficult time in school. Or any number of possible conflicts. As a writer we thrive on the conflict we inflict on our characters because we thrive on fixing said conflict for our main characters. But in real life we want none of it. 🙂
