Google Definition of author’s note on the Web:
* when the author wants to create an aside to explain something.
I’ve had a recent request to explain why some of the post are listed as author’s notes.
As a writer, I want to give my readers the experience of a great read, but the mindset I was in while I was writing.
In the live writings that I do, I feel (and this is just my take on it) I give the reader not only the full on insight into how i write a story, but also how I thought of a part of the story or when the story comes to me.
My author’s notes are more or less, sidebars into the story. I wish I could publish a book with sidebars and write down what I was thinking at the time of each epiphany in the story.
That would be cool I think.
I used to love reading Stephen King’s re-produced novels he’d done as Richard Bach.
In the front of them, he’d have notes on how he created those stories and I thought that was really awesome.
Maybe I have a little Stephen King in me and want to do the same or create the same good feeling Stephen King created in me.
More to come…
Thanks for being a reader, visitor and/or fan.
