  1. I think Auster is awesome. I enjoy his books and can’t wait to read his next one. I just bought Travels in the Scriptorum.

    GOod luck with your writing

  2. Wellum: thank you for the good luck wishes and I hope you enjoy Travels!

    Mike: actually, no, I haven’t. Something I must remedy as soon as possible, methinks 😉

  3. I want to take the world as I know it — as I have known it — and reshape it, present it in a different light. […] I want to skew the angles, present unusual juxtapositions in order to challenge preconceived notions.

    You know, Gary, I read that and had an epiphany!

    I’ve been struggling with my not-so-secret novel because I couldn’t define its purpose. I know the story like the back of my hand, but I want to do more than just tell a story. What you’ve described is exactly what I want to do as well. With a clearer vision/goal, maybe it will start moving along at a steadier pace.

    Thanks! 😀

  4. Glad to be of service, Lottie! I found it really helped with Children of the Resolution that I had a primary focus — that the novel had something very definite to say. That was not by any means all that the novel was about, but it served to unite everything and give it a point.
