“Do you have an image of the perfect way for your audience to experience your work?
Yes, of course! I visualize them enjoying the visuo-spatial and emotional impact of my writing, make them sit up and say,’Ah, would like to read more.’
Do you think of someone reading it silently in a garden, reading it out loud, lying in bed listening to a recording of you reading it, or experiencing it in some other specific way?
Wherever they choose to read the work they should walk along with me every step of the way, listen or read into what is left unsaid, go beyond mere words, connect in some unique way.
“The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.” Maya Angelou
