First Proofread

Louis Puster

So far I have done my first real proofread through chapter 5 of book 2.  It is interesting how many little mistakes one can make as your fingers furiously try to pound out all the words that come flowing through your mind.  Telling a story is hard sometimes.  

When I am writing, one of the things that I worry about is the pacing of a scene.  I very much want the story of Wrack to feel like you are watching a movie and so the pace is very quick.  I certainly do not spend pages and pages of the reader's time describing things, because the timing doesn't feel right.  Also, writing from the character's perspective is sometimes tricky.  How many things go by in our lives that we misconstrue or completely glance over?  That somewhat imperfect narration is important for me to get correct.

 

I have seen other writers, big writers, say that you should keep your words away from other people until they are perfect.  I don't want perfect - I want perfectly flawed.  It is more important to me that the feeling, the message, of the work be delivered to the audience than that all of the facts are straight.  People sometimes miss the facts, and so too then does a character writing down the broken memories of a mysterious life.  I like Wrack's imperfection.  It makes him real for me.
