A CHARACTER OR THE DIRECTOR

When you write stories, do you imagine yourself as one of the characters or do you imagine yourself as a director. For me, I imagine myself visually directing my characters even though as writers, we direct them through our writing style. I remember taking a film class in high school, and I was the director as well as the writer of the script my classmates had to play out. I held the big and slightly heavy video camera and directed. When I said, “Take 1,” the story came alive through the actors. When I said, “Take 2, or Take 3,” the story was getting better as the errors and mishaps were slowly disappearing from them. As a novelist, I do a take 1, take 2, and take 3 by scratching sentences and paragraphs with a pen and revising continuously. The story was getting better as the errors were being replaced by polish plots and characters. I think if it wasn’t for the film class, I would imagine myself as one of the characters most of the time. I do imagine myself as one of the characters sometimes, but I enjoyed seeing every part of the story; looking from the outside as the director. Of course, I hear other professionals tell novelists to imagine themselves as a character, and they are right. Yet, I find myself more comfortable as the director. Do you imagine yourself as one of the characters or do you imagine yourself as a director when you write?
