My friend, Augusta Scattergood, just posted a terrific interview with Caroline Starr Rose, author of May B.
I found this both fascinating and informative since I'm also writing a novel in free verse. I loved hearing how organic Caroline is being with the writing. I suspect this is necessary because poetry is such an organic thing anyway.
As I dig back into my work-in-progress I realize my earlier attempts were stiff because they grew out of my concern for plot. This time I am focusing more on the characters - digging into their souls and letting them speak from deep longing, profound joy, and whatever other emotions bubble up.
Imagine the emotions in this story...
I haven't read May B. Yet. But reading the interview and seeing this trailer makes me want to. So, Kansas prairie - here I come...
Do head on over to Augusta's blog to read the interview with Caroline! Leave a comment and you could win a copy of the book! Wish I could win but I'm not entering because I just won another book at Augusta's blog and well, it's your turn!.
Augusta Scattergood is the author of Glory Be. (Interesting title parallels going on here, eh?)
