How will you feel when you hear from readers that you have elicited the response you were aiming for? Imagine the one person who always understands you, reading this book and write for them. Imagine that they get it, every nuance. How does that make you feel?
Oh wow. That would make me feel absolutelty incredible, to know that they understood everything in the story. I would be on top of the world.
What do you absolutely hate in a Creative Work? What enrages you when you see it?
This isn’t so much something that enrages me, but it is an aspect of some creative works that I find really, really annoying. And that is…stories with to much description.
I mean, I understand that stories need to have description in order to make them rich, take the reader to the setting and make the reader see what the writer sees, but to much description bogs down the story, interrupting the flow. Especially if it continues for several pages.
What do you love in your favorite tales? Witty dialogue? Heroic characters? Descriptive prose? Realism? Escapism? Fast pacing? Slow descriptive prose?
Ooo…hard to say. For me, it would probably be dialogue and realism. While I won’t dismiss a book if it doesn’t have these things, I am the type of person who doesn’t really read sci-fi novels or fantasy novels. These are also genres I could never write.
I love dialogue, as it makes a character to come to life. With dialogue, there is a character who has feelings, emotions, goals, wants. In short, it’s a complex person, just like the people in real life.
