I started reading novels in the late 1970's when adults loved to read in the mass market. Blockbusters were written to the broadest audiences that could be devised. I recall taking novels seriously when I turned ten years old. I had become fascinated by the amount of work that authors and editors were putting into psychological fiction. More work was being put into novels that any occupation other than academic studies.
Blockbusters were written generally and had protagonists with uncharacteristic personalities. Intriguing plots provided depth, and violent scenes forced plots into consciences. Blockbusters were the major influence of novels until roughly 1990. Intuitive and emotional appeal for mass-market qualities of psychological fiction lasted until fears of delinquencies and failures that were related to the new century set in.
I felt like an adult reading blockbusters in the 1970's and 1980's. Blockbusters seemed like alternate realities, and I felt like an adventurer travelling to dangerous continents. I started to collect favorite statements, and compare them to each other. Mass-market techniques had opened a window into unconscious fears and nightmares nationally.
Cumulative readership and new entrants into the marketplace for fiction slowly changed demand for blockbusters. Social progress had caused blockbusters to exist, and their demise to reinstitute social progress again. I fell down with blockbusters into erotic literature. I loved exercise, and resisted nightmares very well. I climbed back up to social progress after blockbusters died to recognize that authors had meant to pound out frustrations and discover guilt.
The marketplace for fiction became segmented by the beginning of the twenty-first century. Novels became written by type for groups of similar individuals. They got published to homogenous audiences in a heterogeneous marketplace. Blockbusters were gone, and erotica grew up from personal expressions and niche markets into unconscious lust and standardization of literary techniques. I fell off of the dangerous continents, and swam through sea water to luxury hotels. Segmentation meant groups of friends travelling on vacation, and unconscious fears and nightmares meant psychoanalytic hang-ups and failures of sexual intimacy.
I decided to write for sure when the 1990's started. I had realized that frustrated and guilty authors had written national treasures that taught individuals to discipline their motives. Sensible authors could reach individuals nationally, and instill courage and determination. I wanted to write realistic scenes that took audiences into exotic situations. I chose to study realism, intellectualism, and fantastic events in cultural history.
