Uzzell on being seized by the vision of a story

by on 27/09/10 at 7:00 am

If you are seized by the vision of a story, I would not delay long in writing it whether all the technical problems it raises are solved or not. Too much worry over such problems while writing may check your expressiveness. After a day or so of “cooling,” you may test your work as analytically as you will. If it is lifeless, discard it and do another; if it displays signs of life, but needs doctoring, be you then its physician. Creation, like life itself, moves by feeling and energy, not by thought.–Thomas H. Uzzell, Narrative Technique, A Practical Course in Literary Psychology
