CREATIVE READING

One must be an inventor to read well. There is then creative  reading as well as creative writing ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I think it’s amazing that a novel is never the same for any two people. Our imaginations fill in a legion of details than no author could ever write. And the cool thing is, our imaginations add in details that we like, and this makes the story extra entertaining.  It’s a fact: readers help writers to create great stories. It’s a collaboration.

It’s exciting that if people read my novel, they’ll expand the haunted world of Memento Mori using their own creative powers.  I really love that it’s a bit of a lie to say that a book has only this one author.  Don’t stories become bigger, richer…the more people who share the experience?
