I recently finished a great science fiction novel. One that sucked me in and transported me into another life. It's the kind of book that I want to write. I don't know if the book was technically perfect, and I didn't care. The fact was I was emotionally pulled in. (come back Monday for the full review!)
When I write, do I do that for my readers? How do I know if I do? And do I suck people in just enough, or completely?
I want it to be completely. You know, the kind of involved reading where you forget there is a real world to live in.
My biggest fear is that my writing will never reach that level. Maybe I started too late in life. Perhaps I'm too lazy or busy raising my kids. I don't know, but how will I know if I'll ever be enough?
