Are you a listener?
Today I had to stop near the end. I wanted to write something down.
Varian Johnson talked about how to figure out exactly what a book would be.
This is exactly what I'd been thinking about while reading some of the submissions from my Florida critique group. What's the tone? The VOICE of the novel? Who's the intended reader?
(Or, as our buddy Greg Neri loves to say: A book will be what it wants to be.)
Now I'm off to a wonderful HIGHLIGHTS UNWorkshop with two of my best writing buddies.
Signing off the internet for a while.
Taking time to figure out what a book wants to be.
And other important things.
