Puppy Gidget’s first trip to the beach, she didn’t know whether to reach or dig, so she did both.
I’m delighted to have another essay featured on Writer Unboxed today, and I’d love to have your input (here or there). I’ve recently been thinking about High Concept as it relates to the market versus exploring deep themes in my work. (I’ve been focused on the latter, hopefully not too much to the detriment of the former.) Can you think of favorite novels that would rightfully be called High Concept? I’m curious. Please stop by WU and see what it’s all about.
Sorry, I see how long it’s been since I’ve posted here with any regularity. I’m still focused on my current rewrite. But I expect I’ll have a lot to explore once I reach “The End” of that project. Thanks for sticking with me!
The ladies at Writers In the Storm have been generous enough to host me once again. It’s a vibrant, supportive, and insightful community they’ve fostered, and I’m grateful for the opportunity.
The post is one that’s been brewing for quite a while. About ten years, actually. Although I admit I didn’t know it was brewing for over half of that time. I thought I was trying to write a story. And then I thought I was trying to make it worthy of being read by staying true to my characters. I didn’t know I was excavating my own deeper truths. How about you? Do you see your beliefs reflected back to you from the written page? Please stop by and delve a little deeper, won’t you?
