Interesting advice I read in a comment to a review of Les Miserables
This is from a comment I read to a review of a preview of the new Les Miserables movie coming out this winter (which, by the way, looks to be excellent):
Story drives emotions, and emotions drives response. When a story connects with the truths people reading, watching, or listening to it have had in their own lives, or have longed for for themselves or for people they know and love, the result is a response based on truth, not on manipulation.
The reason Victor Hugos Les Miserables has succeeded in capturing the imaginations of people across the world since it was first published in 1862 is because its themes of love, loss, redemption, forgiveness, and the will to survive, continue (and will always continue) to be themes that people across the world make a heart-connection with.
I found that this comment resonated with me--a good thing to keep in mind as you are finishing your NaNo novel. What do you think?
I am so looking forward to this! We should get a group to go see it after the holidays!
