Writing About not Writing a Rant

I have been blogging much before I started this blog and my other one, and I have noticed that in writing all my previous blogs, I had a tendency to rant.

Not that I do not have insane urges to rant even now, but I am more likely to feed the rant to some character in one of my stories rather than do the ranting as myself.

A character in one of my stories is going to spew out a host of angry, ugly words, at some incident that “justifies” it. Like this one.

I, on the other hand, shall be Snow-white, use the most PC of phrases.

Sometimes I feel like a hypocrite, letting my characters do all the dirty work, the rants and so on.

But, like my writing teacher says, when I am writing, I am acting out the part of someone else.

Does it really matter where I get the dialogs and emotions from? Nah.

I love comments, and I always visit back. Blogging is all about being a part of a community, and communities are about communication! Tweet me up @damyantig !

    thanks for the link to the teacher story. I think that totally deserves a rant.

    (& I like your rants–would get a lot more upset at the state of the world if I thought nobody minded how things are now)

    Dammit, that’s absolutely right! Where the hell do these people get off with all that complainin’ about everything? Whine, whine, whine… blah, blah, blah! Makes me just want to wrap my hands…
    Uh… sorry. Guess I got carried away with that whole acting out the part of someone else acting out me. 🙂
