There is a certain faction of characters that are highly revered, extremely popular, and continuously raked through the coals. Writers love to torture, twist, and, sometimes, even kill theses characters. What is it about them? Why are they so fun to torture? What makes writers so eager to be their personal tour guide through hell? I guess it has something to do with building character. As Kelly Clarkson sings, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger . . . " But, damn.

In every stage of the writing process, there is a disconnect. The first is between your mind and what ends up on the page. You picture the most awesome, innovative scenes ever, fraught with emotions and big ideas but only in dreamlike glimpses. When you set it down, it’s usually a pale echo of what you wanted, with only flashes of that incredible story in your mind. When you’re writing for another medium, like film, TV, or comics, the next disconnect is what’s on the page versus what ends up drawn or filmed. There are realities like, how well does your artist read? How much budget do you have for this spectacular effect? This is how Star Trek ends up with aliens made out of what looks like an old carpet covered in pizza stains, or this week’s episode which has what Nana Visitor described as “a giant sundae with my head as the cherry.”
