I often try, in vain, to express the sweet tendre of a life lived solely in passion, but cruel reality often intervenes, so I devised an alternative. By writing, the impassioned life of my characters as simply as possible and with language appropriate for them, the emphasis placed on the magic that results from their interaction with one another. When I write, it’s all about the kindness of a warm strong hand or thoughtful ear in moments of despair.
I love my characters and want nothing more than for others to see them in full. I want my audience to see their heart and understand their motivation. If they are in love or in pain because of love they have for another, I have them articulate that in a manner that requires no interpretation.
plain old ‘I want you,’ ‘I am without end, for she is gone,’ or a simple ‘I love you.’ I think it's effective and it's part of my process.
A lovely weekend to all,
