I do that a lot.
Then I realize that even though I am trying to write a supernatural-esque or paranormal-ish story I have left those elements out.
There is a lot of important information that I am leaving out. Terms. Abilities. Senses. Feelings. Physical reactions.
I guess I will need to do some research.
In other words, an excuse for not writing.
But really. I know there are a ton of werewolf stories out there. But I don't want to just regurgitate what others have written before.
"You read what others had done and you took the next step. You didn't earn the knowledge for yourselves, so you don't take any responsibility... for it. You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could..." Dr. Ian Malcolm, Jurassic Park.
I don't want to reinvent the wheel either.
There is something to be said for simple. I don't want to confuse myself or anyone who might read the story. But I also want to weave a believable tale.
Are you buying any of this?
I think I need to make a list. Did I mention that I like to make lists? I have never made one for writing but I make lists for about everything else in my life.
First some research, then make a list for this story so that I can remember to add important details.
On an unrelated note...
So, there is a new tab at the top of my page. I have posted an excerpt of my completed book Setting the Record Straight. If there are enough interested parties I will post some more.
