About Types and Things
Good artists tend to stay within a style, if ever they’re lucky enough to find it. That’s cool, but maybe it’s a better tack to try and do something a little different each time out.
One of the worst things about writing is noticing when you’re repeating a thing. By thing, I mean a type of situation, a type of dialogue, type of character, what have you. Maybe I should call the thing a type, since I said type three times.
For me, I like to do interrogations in my stories. Drama is conflict, and it’s just natural or easy to get that stuff out of an interrogation room.
This is okay, as long as I approach it different each time.
If I do the same crap, then I’m a cheater and don’t deserve to type anymore things or types.
So keep your style. I think I’m always going to be a bit cheeky, no matter how serious the story. That’s who I am. Kind of like Quentin Tarantino is sadistic, so he likes to have people’s heads explode in lots of scenes. Fair play, far as I’m concerned, and good for him. Because really, in the end, it’s about the elements surrounding the exploding heads that matter.
Fair play to y’all. Cheers and see you after.
