Yes, I'm impressed with the blind typing too, Gary! I'm not quite your classic touch typist, if I did that my writing would be most avant garde
Hi Richard - it's a bit hard to talk about, isn't it? I'm trying to describe intuitive things that aren't really graspable in words, that happen while I'm previsioning a book. The actual writing is really where it all happens for me. But re your question: it's fair to say that yes, I'm going for a particular emotional place in the work, and that is probably my primary objective; it's certainly the aspect I feel most clear about. But the story is the means by which I do it. So both things are very hard to separate from each other.I find your comments about a shape interesting. I think I understand what you are saying, but it is hard for me to fully comprehend. Are you saying that the emotional ending to the book is your true target, and not neccessarily the storyline events that comprise it?
