What I Love about Fiction Writing

14 Nov

Fiction writing is a passion.

It opens up endless scenarios involving characters of my choice. In other words, I’m  in control:  I  can bring ecstacy or disaster.  I can conjure up tales that entertain, strike a chord, or even offer guidance to those in a similar situation.

At another level, fiction writing allows exploration of the scope of language. Evocation is my aim, and within the meaning of words comes the substance of its creation.  Mood, theme, character and location: these pose wonderfully intriguing challenges.

And what a buzz I get  my own work pleasurably engages me! I guess we writers share this reward: it’s the proverbial icing on the cake.

Then, there’s the thrill of learning what others make of it: family, friends, readers and reviewers. The mind-boggling wonder: is it being read ( and hopefully enjoyed) at this very moment?

Finally, to behold my stories packaged as a book: to hold it my hands, and see my name as author: is one of the best moments of my life. Small wonder I love to write fiction!
