Marsha is the host of WQWWC
IT’S EASY TO PLAY ALONG WITH #WQWWC
This weekly writing challenge runs from Wednesday through Tuesday. The only rule is to use a quote. If you want to participate, create a pingback to link your post. Not sure how to do that? See how to create pingbacks here. Be sure to link to the most recent post not my page. I don’t see links to my page.
Topic this week; Imaginary
“It is only through fiction and the dimension of the imaginary that we can learn something real about individual experience. Any other approach is bound to be general and abstract”
Without the imaginary worlds, characters and events a story can never be written. It is when the writer immerses him/her-self into the imaginary worlds of their creation that they can truly write a story that is as real as life. That’s why I feel that having an imagination is the best tool a person can have who aspires to write.
“Imaginary time is a new dimension, at right angles to ordinary, real time”
The worlds of the multiverse, alternate reality, and traveling through time, all need imaginary time. It is right there, within our grasp this imaginary dimension where we can find all the adventures our hearts and minds long for.
“It is a queer thing, but imaginary troubles are harder to bear than actual ones”
Don’t let your imagination run away with you when you’re imagining the worst. Sometimes the drawback of having a fertile imagination is that we imagine so much more that can actually happen. Rein in this wild ride and try to keep within the bounds of probability.
In the end, I’ll finish with this quote. Where is fun if we eschew the imagination and imaginary worlds thinking of them as a hindrance to practicality. It is the place where exciting things happen and we have the most fun time.
Thank you Marsha for this wonderful topic.
