So I just started a new novel today. No idea where it’s going to go, I have no plot ideas, I’m just pantsing.
Anyway, so I’m writing randomly, and apparently one of my characters now is a wise old dad who has a daughter, I’ve named her Sabre because that popped in my head and I’m like, hey, sure, sounds good (I think I was penduluming between Sabre and Sabra, but chose Sabre, sounds cooler, like Sabre Dance). So the dad drops this jewel of a quote, and I think I agree with it:
Anonymity is the stuff of creativity.
And I think I agree on one level with him, because when you’re not afraid of backlash, you’re more open and feel freer to explore things.
What do you think?
