"To me, words are music!" --- Lori R. Lopez
"I'm the first to admit that I don't write right. Now relax and enjoy the show!
The sideshow, that is." --- Lori R. Lopez
It’s impossible to foretell. Could be anything from the Bizarre and Fantastic to the Mythically Historic; from Memorable and Inspiring to Horrific and Quirkily Humorous, Frankenstein-stitched together!
Here's what she has to say:
In me lurks an innate desire to deviate from the norm. I have spent years developing a style I feel is my own. I am meticulous about editing and rewrite much more than I write. I am passionate about poetic prose, about the balance and flow of each sentence I compose. I am a bit obsessive-compulsive over redundance -- which can consume a large amount of time -- and hold unconventional views that I refuse to compromise, such as the voice of a story should be seen and heard (rather than kept quiet so as not to attract attention). I believe above all in being different!
Composing words on a page, in my opinion, should be the same as arranging a symphony with notes and measures. I believe strongly that creative writing cannot be confined by a standard doctrine but should break the rules and flow beyond. Those who insist one must only write a certain way are damaging the spectrum and license of literature.
I further believe a writer without a broad vocabulary is like a craftsman without tools. Words are the medium we create in. We should not be restricted to common everyday language when there are terms available from a wealth of tongues, dialects, cultures, and periods. It is up to us to apply them well, as artists stroke paint upon canvas.
Some of my very favorite authors are Lewis Carroll, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and William Shakespeare. I perceive my style as being most similar to a hodgepodged mishmashed frothing test-tube concoction of theirs.
So behold the descriptions of my “Abby Normal” tales, if you think you can handle something intensely ORIGINAL. But don’t take my word for it — test the waters yourself and I guarantee you’ll be hooked.
