“endings” in The Spooky Art by Norman Mailer

Posted by Lew Weinstein on April 15, 2007

·   I look to find my book as I go along·   Plot comes last. ·   I want my conception of my characters to be deep enough that they will get me to places (which I did not plan) and where I have to live by my wits. ·   If the characters stay alive, and keep developing, the plot will take care of itself.  ·   Is there a problem if the reader senses that the author doesn’t know how the plot turns out?
