In relation to writing fiction? Well, to speak for myself, here... I think I can say it could
be relative. I mean, I remember constantly writing drafts for a story and many of them came out as if it were written like a screenplay or a script in a video game. The story contents and formula were all there, but the presentation was simply... different. Maybe or maybe not quite what you could be referring to?
I couldn't say every
writer has this problem (as I am only one man), but I feel like I can safely say that I
do. Or I can relate to moments that are comparable to that, I suppose? And I'm willing to bet I'm not alone, either. I have some theories on how this can happen but... nothing that I feel would be sound. Just... speculation and hypothesis, really.
