Writing is solving problems. Writing is making the right choices. I used to be somebody who just went with the flow. Whatever happened, happened. Lalalalala. Not anymore. I'm constantly penciling in corrections to my life. Should have done this. Should have done that. Could have avoided this, if only I'd done this or that.
I like to blame this character glitch on writing.
After spending years of constantly looking for what's wrong, I recently realized I do the same thing with my life. I look at every scene from every angle. I mentally follow the path that any given choice may or may not present. Daily events become something I labor over and weigh, while trying to guess the outcome. Every day comes in three acts. You have to think ahead. You have to see past the headlights or you'll end up in revision hell.
