My third book–tentatively titled Greater Than Yourself–is in the works, and I’m inviting you in on the process.
This one is also a novel, a parable-told-in-typical-cheeky-Farber-style–whatever you wanna call it (catch up on the discussion about it here). The story’s developing nicely and the characters are fleshing themselves out more and more every day (the creative process in this kind of writing is really a remarkable thing. Freakin’ scary, too, I must say, given that I’m never exactly sure what’s going to happen next. You’d figure the writer should know that, right?)
Everything’s subject to change, of course, but what follows, in semi-cryptic bullet form, is the outline of the book’s message as it stands today. And here’s where you come in:
Read through the outline and then give me your impressions of what some or all of the points mean to you. Right off the top of your head. Don’t try to interpret what I mean, tell me what you think they mean.
Why am I asking this of you? Consider it an experiment in message clarity and congruence. Or remote-intuitive collaboration. (Okay, I just made that up). Bottom line is I think your responses will be very, very interesting and they just may find their way into the book.
You can either offer your comments in the…uh…comments, or, if you’re just too shy, send me an email. (Make sure you remove “nospam” from my address before you send your email).
And I will tell you what I mean, too–just a little further on down the road. Thanks for your help!
