|The man and his creation.*|
It wasn't anything particularly brilliant. It was simple. Too simple. But in a way, that's what made it so decidedly useful to me.
I've been overwhelmed with tons of information about writing lately. It's too much to process. But I like this Lovecraft dude. And his advice isn't pretentious or overly wordy either (surprising cause the man loves his descriptions). It helped me. A lot.
It's the reason I have this first outline done now. What started as a dream that rattled me one night is now something tangible. My next step is to flesh out my characters some more. Then I'll do a few chapter outlines, and I think I'll actually get started on this thing. For reals this time.
