|That is a cool picture. Is that your book? Amazingly cool. Have a wonderful birthday even in lock down. Write something about you and either a real or make believe fantasy or something about what you'd like for a birthday! |
|Fellow writers I’m struggling with character voice. If there’s a good newsletter or post about creating different character voice in a novel please post a link. I had one review that said my characters seem to sound alike This is the rough draft. As I move into the first rewrite what can I do to make sure my male detectives don’t sound alike? Is it action? Words usage? I could use some help.|
| Here we are, Monday and still the world is in a panic. I and my husband have been laid off due to the over reaction to the flu. Friday we were told that since our jobs didn't have anything to do with sales or shipping, we would be on temporary lay off with no date in the future to look forward to. |
The only good thing is, I now have time to start downsizing my garage. I'm seriously going to go through boxes and either sell what I can or pitch it. Who's going to buy a huge set of china, bits and pieces of decorative tableware or totes full of Christmas decorations?
Another good thing is I will be busy rewriting the memoir I was hired to do. (very difficult) I also need to write the last few chapters of my own work in progress. I pray this panic will end soon and we'll go back to being sane, rational people.
|Has anyone read the March issue of Writer's Digest? I was especially interested in Jessica Strawser's article on Character. Some things she wrote resonated with me. She put a new twist on how to look at character and change. I will be using it when I rewrite my novel. Quite the eye opener. |
| A love poem |
They strolled down the lane together,
the sky was studded with stars.
They reached the gate in silence
as he lifted down the bars.
She neither smiled nor thanked him
because she knew not how.
He was just a farmer's boy,
and she was a jersey cow.
