What’s the intention? This is the question. In a novel the intention for it – the novel – must be defined, specific, achievable and must never be diluted. I’m not talking about plots or characterisation or scenes or any of that stuff. I’m talking about the feel, the pace, the sense, the smell of it. That’s the intention. Intention for any creation must be arrived at, stuck to and followed until it has been completed. Easier said than done.
Should it be free? Oh that’s another question entirely. This idiot thinks that perhaps it should.
