The Evolution of your Stories by Dennis Scheel
Many who wants to write, have many stories within their heads, always running at a nonstop loop, yet they’re not able to get them down on paper. Some can do that, while others first can when they are ready. I was one of those such cases, where I tried writing them, but failed again and again, until the day arrived where I was ready. Writing them down led to the stories playing in my head became less frequent, becoming more into ideas for my stories. What I also learned was how the story I first envisioned in my mind turned out very differently on paper. The time with ideas ‘running amuck’ has left me with many ideas of tales I want to tell.
Everything in our daily lives can inspire and does. From as little as a mere sentence to as big as an experience; real-life events can be a steady source of inspiration… it’s often something you would never think of without reality inspiring. The same thing goes with finding it from existing stories to enhance your own. As writers, we want our stories to be as good as possible. (At least most of us.) Sometimes we get so many ideas, to keep track of. I, like many others, get the ideas after turning into bed for the night, even writing notes to myself with the ideas I had.
The many ideas/ stories running through our heads can be great ideas, like dreams can, (for the ones remembering their dreams, that is.) But not all ideas are strokes of genius, some are worth forgetting again, while others, that are forgotten, we wish we had made a note of before it got forgotten.
But the time we invest with ideas in our heads should hopefully enhance the ones we have on paper, in a perfect world it would, but we don’t live in that one, so that’s not always how it goes…

Dennis Scheel has always had the stories running in his head, but not until after his accident, which left him mute and paralyzed on the right side was he able to tell them. After he worked his way back, he wanted to try to tell his story once more since an acquaintance told him there was talent in his poetry, he had been convinced by his ex not to write for ten years, she insisted he had no talent. This time tried in English since all other times failed. Finally, he succeeded, and he never stopped writing since. Which led to the completion of No Way Back- The Underworlds and the sequel Taken With a Dark Desire: The Underworlds
