I loved Jim's articles looking into different aspects of the RS. I'd always thought and felt a relationship as a character, another 'person' in the scene, being able to write its presence. I think maybe I have a holistic mindset-I couldn't say for certain.
But the relationship, the space between the people, is that the RS? Is it similar as the negative space in drawing and composition? As my wife the art teacher keeps telling me. "See the negative space and you will see the subjects as they truly are, not as you think they are."
So does the RS show the MC, and the IC, as they really are, and not as they, or the writer, thinks they are?
