The Purpose of the Story.

In my writing time I look forward to the story. I want to be transported to the place and time of my characters. I want to know them living and breathing, as I would know you, a friend, or a loved one. The characters drive the story, they tell me what to do with them and where to do it. The guess work is taken out because the voices in my head (Characters) dictate every move. I never know when I sit down to type where they will take me. It's a wonderful surprise every single time. It's fun and exciting, sometimes even exhilarating. My heartbeat kicks up a notch and I feel as if I'm in the the story. A background character so to speak. It's interesting to me being such a part of an intimate scene, getting to know them on a carnal level. Being a part of their lives seeing things from their perspective. Feeling their emotions and being in the moment.This is why I write. This is why I love it so, the creative aspect aside, the lives of the people I breathe life into are as much a part of me as I am myself. Writing it down, typing it out one key stroke at a time is a privilege for me. I hope you enjoy the moment with me, because it truly is the purpose of the story.
