Story Makers and Story Chasers – a theory

2 thoughts on “Story Makers and Story Chasers – a theory”

  1. According to this breakdown, I’m a story chaser, all the way. Which is especially hard for a mystery writer because the plots of that genre must be carefully structured. Beat into submission, as it were. That’s dang hard work, but it always comes after the story in in place. So in the end, I’m less of a chaser and more of a wanderer looking for spoor and signs. And then I try to lure a story close enough to ride, for a little while. I’m a story whisperer, a story tamer, but not a story breaker, as if stories were broncos. Because they always return to the wild when they are ready. They are always half-feral.
