Incident At Monticello

As a historical writer, Daniel Rengaw is new to Notoriety. His Notoriety is what History wants to channel with. Men, myths, and memories of History, ask Daniel to re-write a wrong. It is the doings of History that help drive the tale. The obstruction is that History doesn’t always drive a true path.

About Scott D Wagner

‘A good tale, always is.’ I inner embrace this phrase as being perfectly simple. However, what makes a good tale? That question is the demon that forever rattles around in the mind of every writer.

‘A good story, beats good structure every time.’ If you hang around a group of writers for any length of time, and I highly recommend that you do not, you will hear this line. It is a phrase that I wholly understand. One that I less wholly embrace.

A good story makes a story good. However, a good story that is given life, is breathe to the reader. An alive story, turns a good one into a great one.

I write with this in mind always. Perhaps it is because I have enjoyed so many of the great authors. I will throw Charles Dickens out there. I would never compare my writing with the Master’s. Yet, I just did.

Poetic flow with a mathematical coloring is the only way that I know to write. More right, it is my desire to write this way. My story is the reader’s story. Involved love for a character, engaged loathing for a character, this is my goal for my readers. My gift to the reader. My thoughts, my emotions, my senses, all need to be my reader’s. The characters thoughts, the characters emotions, their senses, all must live in the reader. If I have given birth to live alive in a story, my task is complete.

I understand that my writing style is may not be for all. I have been told my writing is a bit Old School. I smile. No better compliment.
