Abraham asked the fellow on the "hot seat" if he could give a "clear inside-of-the-vortex description" of his work, and that just spoke volumes to me! :O)
I get it! :D
As a writer there is so much for me to appreciate, right now!
For example, I like to think about characaters who give me a good feeling. I like to think how there can be so many different characters and stories or situations and how I can feel so good about so many of them.
And I like to think about a story of mine, say, and how I can simply love all the different characters in that one story, alone. And how I can love the setting and the way the story gets started and the feelings I get to explore and the interesting little ways that the characters express themselves. And I feel so proud thinking I did all that. In fact, I AM all that. Yeah! "I'm ALL that!" Hahaha! ;O)
I love thinking how someone somewhere is thinking about a character who was once just a thought in my mind--but now this person has intimate thoughts and opinions and memories and feelings about this character. Now, there's something to think about.
I like knowing there are people who like to look over text and ask themselves, "Who'd be just right to illustrate this?" and "How should that be handled?" And I love that there are people with just the right skills and aptitude to bring that further dimension to the written word (when appropriate). And I love that I know enough about the illustration end of the industry to appreciate that.
And I love it that there are so many people with different skills and interests to help bring literature to the masses.
I really enjoy playing, too, with the tricks of the trade. I like playing with the look of the words on the page or with the sounds of words and how one word affects another word. And i have fun messing with rhythms and expectations with my writing.
I like to use my imagination, and simply love knowing that this is one field where I really get to flex that muscle!
What about you? What's "a clear inside-of-the-vortex description of your work?"
Sunshine & Blessings,
