    writings. I am very much about waiting for inspiration to hit because that’s when my best work is done. When I try to write without inspiration my work is not my best and I struggle to create anything. Also, if it’s not subject I am passionate about then I have a hard time creating anything.

It highlighted features I personally enjoy in a good novel and the types of tools the author can use to create tension, suspense, and mystery.

Though reasons for lack of involvement during the production stage could be because there was not a strict following of the storyboard, and perhaps if there was a clearer vision of what…
