Step Away From the Computer

Yesterday, I struggled with questions like “Do these characters seem real? How do I get into this character’s head?” Some characters seemed exceptionally vivid and others seemed flat. It was annoying.

So of course, last night’s dreams were full of ghosts materializing and disappearing. When they materialized, they were fascinating and delightful. Trouble was, I wasn’t sure how to conjure them and had to keep trying different things. Half of the time, my attempts failed.

It was pretty frustrating, overall.
