Victoria - Hilding Johnson
I'll turn once again to my thoughts on me and writing - and yes, they are still thoughts and they are just that – nothing more.
Perhaps I'm a volcano and I'll erupt - or one day, I'll get hit on the head, and my world will tilt just enough to get me to actually write something - meaningful.
Hilding Johnson, in her contributor's notes, reminds the reader that an author has the luxury of creating a world through their writing...sometimes a world that they have never physically visited.
I've been doing a lot of world creating and it's remained in my head - there have been efforts in the past to get them on paper but that perfect stone has not fallen from the sky causing those worlds to be transferred to paper.
I am afraid at times that the stone will be too big and crush me under its weight. It needs to be just the right size - and come at just the right time.
Could I possibly set up any more barriers for myself?
