As Goethe once said: how sweet it is to hear one’s own convictions from another’s lips. 🙂
I’ve previously written about the art of imagining – and why the written word with all its gaps, blanks and ambiguities can be more satisfying than depicted images.
Stories should inspire the imagination, just enough detail to allow to the reader (or listener or viewer) to create the scene inside their own head. Stories should also be compelling enough to encourage readers to want to continue imagining the details – and what might happen beyond the margins of the story. Because that’s when stories become fantasies…
Thanks Anon, I wish you happy imaginings.
