Connection is an intention of mine, from a few different angles. From my perspective, connection with readers is a very dynamic experience. It looks like, as an author, that I am writing my book on my own, as if it is a solo task. And sure, often I am alone. However, the readers are constantly on my mind. While writing, I am always considering who the readers are, what is relevant and interesting to them and how can I meet them where they are? Furthermore, where can we meet each other? Obviously, we meet when my words resound within their minds as they read and what then? A blending of us, into something bigger, that integrates the two. Maybe my words sit on someone’s shelf. Maybe the book is opened often and greased by use during cooking. I hope so.
