Recently a number of friends on the various social web sites have comment that I should write a novel or generally take my writing more seriously. Something I never thought of doing mostly because I never had the confidence to write anything even here on my journal.
Add to this I have come from a more scientific academic background and worked with computers most of my life which far from encourages creative writing but a very analytical way of creating things.
But some people out there actually have more faith in me than I do in myself and suggested that I should write more seriously, one even suggested I write a novel. It is very gratifying that someone has that much faith in my creative side.
Though I do have one thing on my side in so much I have started to running Role-Playing Games again very successfully in so much the players have enjoyed the games I have created to a point they are looking forward to the next sessions of the games to see what is going to happen next.
Basically it seams I have a knack of creating and weaving a Role-Playing plots which can hold the interest of the players which is something I would need to do if I were to start to write more seriously.
It is getting to a point that I should think more seriously about writing taking full advantage of the storytelling experience when creating and running Role-Playing games.
I certainly should start small and continue writing the snippets of stories which appear in my other blog to get the confidence writing plus get some more running Role-Playing games under my belt before I move on.
It might help also that I find courses on creative writing which suit the way I do things and give me firmer basis how to write which was never given me when I was in school when it was really needed.
Finally I have to start reading a lot again to give my imagination enough exercise again after the last few years of being in the desert as far as being creative.
So it is time for me to start to seriously thinking about this as I have said some of my friends think I could actually do it!
