Perhaps you’ve experienced writing in a relatively linear
fashion and all of a sudden, you’ve sensed a marked shift in voice. Three of my
six books contain examples of shifts into stream of consciousness in the midst
of following the storyline. These examples occur in my first novel, Tanner Blue; my short story,“Music for the Dream;” and in my
novella, Painted Deserts. Click here to listen to an example of stream of consciousness in Painted Deserts.
