See, what I've been trying to do lately.. is make my writing resemble my composing. I want to make it flow, and I want to make it create an atmosphere. Just like music. I want you to feel like you're really where I say you are, and I want you to not rationalize, but feel, how musical the prose you are reading is. To do this I need a lot of adjectives, alliteration, and sometimes even rhyme ( Though I have to keep that to a bare minimum ). I have a question, though. How much is TOO much? Tolkien was horrible at this. As great a writer as he was.. nobody wants two pages describing a simple chair. But that's what he gave you. I want to do that, but I want to make it FUN to read. Any suggestions? Here's a sentence I wrote. It's just one sentence.. but if an entire book was made up of sentences like this.. would you read it? " The swaying of golden grass around me, soaked with life from recent rains and dancing to the harmonious hymn of whispered secrets riding on the wind, fills my sorrowed soul with a revival too joyous to put into any mere word of man. " The grammar might be a little off. It might be a little cheesy. I donno, but that's not the point anyway. Thanks!
