OMG! Have you ever had one of those moments? Maybe it's not even in writing. Maybe you're one of the few who are good at writing, but you "got" something else. Well, for me, I finally saw the light...in my writing, lol
When a publisher/editor friend suggested more scenery, I knew what she was talking about, but I just didn't sink in all the way. It was more a book sense of it, the practical application of it was lost though. Then one day(today), for whatever reason, it hit me. Okay, I getcha now. Yeah. I understand. A light bulb literally lit up in my brain. It was like, ding! This is one BIG thing all my writing has been missing.
You see, up until today, I've been writing one dimensional characters. So hollow and shallow. Stick figures at best. Some days I would tinker close to two dimensional, but they never reached the full three dimensional aspect. (Is there a fourth dimension, I don't know, lol) But I was blow away that I got it. You see, I'm smart, I truly am, but I learn things at a slower rate than most, and it takes me a while for things to sink in. (i.e. It was told to me about four months ago about the whole scenery thing)
So, what does this mean for me as far as publishing goes? Oy! A whole bunch of revisions. Long time coming, but my future writings shall be a bit more on the mark and won't need quite as much revising. Yay! I love learning things!
