Exploring a fold in the landscape of my story
Sunday afternoon when lunch is done and the rain is lashing and no-one wants to go outside because it is dark so early.
I am exploring a fold in the landscape of my story revealing a cavern of possibilities: although not adding length to the story, delving deeper into the psyche of the characters lives and asking questions. And finding tucked away and hidden from view, beneath the broad strokes of a plot, a series of hidden stories which are stories within.
Not diversions as such, but perhaps the essence from which the deeper resonances and nuances of the story come; not drawing attention to themselves; waiting for a simple nod in acknowledgment; happening in the background of the world I am creating and giving it depth and plausibility.
