What do you like best about conversations with your readers?
I love hearing their "takes" and interpretations. I often say that the art of writing isn't complete until "it" (the story, the novel, the poem, and so forth) is in the hands of readers. And since each reader is different, the art is never, ever complete...it only gets a step closer with each reader.
I also love lurking in book group discussions. I get a big kick out of it when readers start to cast the movie version of the book. :) It's always fun to see how each reader pictures characters.
