I love that feeling when a story is building towards a climax. Reading a book that picks up momentum and gathers all the loose threads up as it bears down on a conclusion is a very particular pleasure. This is me as a reader.
As a writer I like that initial building of the world – the rhythms that you fall into, and the way that characters are the basic building blocks of worlds, and then the stories suggest themselves.
Poetry and the book experience provide two distinct variations on this – each poem like a mini-rehearsal for the larger build up of the book length aesthetic.
A comic or a film or a song would be an interesting experience to have.
Or maybe I should indulge in some more drawing and painting this year.
Poetry month is upon us, so a poem-a-day poetry book is sure to emerge.
