    What are grey areas anyway, if not loads of little black and white dots?

    Every person is an onion. You've got to peel them back layers at a time. You can't look at the dirty outside and conclude with absolute certainty that the whole vegetable is spoiled, and was *always* spoiled since its conception.

    I believe that most things in life are a certain shade of grey. However, grey does require there to be - somewhere - an absolute black and an absolute white.

    Having said all that, if your antagonist / villain is going to be human, I'd think it should share some believable human qualities. If your antagonist / villain is simply "the force of evil", then I'd suppose that it doesn't.

    I've always wondered how people get so damn bogged down in the planning stage. All I want to do is get my damn story to "The End" and I fight tooth and nail to get there! I never run out of story ideas, and in fact have too damn many with some half dozen works-in-progress in my computer right now. My problem? Sitting my butt down to actually edit.

    Thanks, everyone. I'm glad my rant struck a chord with you. It's actually quite refreshing to write without qualifiers about my opinions. This could become a habit.

    And no, Firemajic, it's not offensives at all. I wear my crumudgeon status proudly.

    Maybe this is why I never have writers block, I have no idea what a story arc is... don't think I want to know either

    I will share this Terry. I run lots of different types of equipment, they all have levers and peddles that do different functions, no two machines that I own are the same, each just a little different. If I had to either explain how each piece works, what each lever does, even though I have run it for hundreds of hours I could not honestly tell you, what lever does what. Yet I can sit behind the controls of each machine and operate it with a fine degree of control and speed.... Sometimes you just need to pull the levers and not worry about the details...Bob

    Crumudgeon--haha--love that word...Would it be offensive to a crumudgeon, if I said I agree with you, and that I enjoyed your POV? er--would it?

    my problem is that everything I do brings new ideas... I'm drowning in them. Actually swimming is a better word since I'm delighted to get them and I am making notes for later!

    I wish blogs had a 'like' button Sometimes I think writers spend too much time analyzing how to write a story rather than writing the pigging story. I never had writers' block until I started worrying about such things as story arcs or whatever they are called. Like you, I can look at any object in my office and create a story about it.
