On Rouge Wave II – a site I recommend by the way – there is a discussion about the first ”buzz” in the head and what you do about it.
My first buzz is a strong scene where I only have vague ideas about the characters and where they came from.
When I write this down it feels so flat and uninspiring. There are two reasons why. One is that I don’t make much effort with the text since it is only a sketch for my own. The other reason is that the scene is so filled with emotions and those are difficult to put on paper.
What I really want to do is download that scene to the computer, so I can watch it on the screen. Like Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within.
You see, I need to get the scene out of my system, because it gets so strong that it blocks everything else. If I write it down things sort of settle and goes back to normal.
But it would be so great to be able to see that scene as it was, not rediscover it by the writings done.
Has anybody felt the same?
