As much as I enjoy writing, and video games, and music, movies, etc… the problem I have with media is that it’s very repetitive. There are only so many ways to portray characters, because despite how unique we are as human beings, it always seems as though we only have a few characters. The way they interact is how the story is made. So, besides the job to tell a story, and to give out the best story we can, we have the added job of trying to tell a story in a fresh new way. The band 3 has a song called All that Remains that has a line “The same old story, but the names have all been changed,” that hits very close to home when I write.
While I’m sure the world is filled with amazing writers, I can’t help but worry if I can pass the test of telling a story in a new way, or to come up with that new character. As opposed to my usual thoughts and support, this is my off my chest moment for the day. It’s short, but I needed to say it. Thanks for reading!
