Oct 11, 2012 at 9:48 comment added Alenanno Nice theory, and now that you explain it, it's kind of familiar as a way of thinking, and I think I agree.
Oct 11, 2012 at 9:37 comment added John Smithers @Alenanno, it has to do with a psychological aspect of being creative which is hard to explain (at least for me). The more you are afraid of to do something, the more likely it is that this thing is exactly what you should do. Conventional wisdom suggests to take the easier path if you have the choice between two options. But the easier path is not as satisfying as the difficult one. That means, what you really want to do is in most cases the difficult (frightening) alternative. Read "The War of Art" by S. Pressfield to get the idea.
Oct 11, 2012 at 9:19 comment added Alenanno John, I definitely liked what you said here: "You want to set atmosphere in your book, not a geographical map", but I need a clarification over something else. What did you mean by "Then pick the more frightening"? Didn't understand it.
