It seems that if I want to reach a larger audience with my books, I HAVE to learn how to plot and fit my stories into an expected formula. At the moment my readership consists mostly of artists like me who can see beyond structure and get the artsy fartsy side of "free" writing. At the same time, if I don't learn the rules, I am also adhering to a form that is a non-form. So the best way out of this pretzel is to write by the rules and get to know them inside and out to be able to bend them. Right now I don't know how to do it, because I don't know the rules.
