Crossing the Great Divide

19 Jul

There is a great divide that exists between the real and the imagined; your dreams and your reality. Imagining is an easy and beautiful thing, you can become a hero in under a minute. It’s only when you thrust your imaginings out into this very real world do you discover their (and your) imperfections…

Because the imaginative reality completely belongs to you, the way you see it is the way it happens. Unfortunately “reality” is full of people; and it contains problems, obstacles and your dream can be pushed, pulled and twisted almost beyond recognition.

My stories live very strongly in my imagination but I have to remember that they only become flesh when they are thrown out into this reality. If you want to do anything significant you cannot live with in the safety of your dreams… you must cross the great divide and enter reality.
