For Writers: Craft Talk Tuesday!


An interior shot of the Writing Barn, Austin, Texas

    Ah, the objective correlative! Well explained! And so timely, since I have trouble describing emotion in my WiP. I remember many a discussion at VCFA when someone tried to explain the concept, only to face a room of blank faces. Thank you T. S. Eliot!

    Yeah! It sounds so exalted and enigmatic, but really, it’s just symbolism of a sort. I’m posting as a guest, so this is going to be interesting to see how WordPress identifies me.
