Wherein I endeavour to share writerly advice lightened with humour, pictures and a dollop of 1930s-1940s history.
A lovely way to remind us... :)
So true, so true. But, it's a great way to keep that in mind. Love the pics.CD
Elspeth - Thanks for the wonderful reminder that a well-written book is like a fascinating journey. Making the journey interesting - even dangerous at times - is the task of the writer. I always try, too, to ask myself, "Do I think this is interesting?" If it doesn't keep my attention, why would it keep the reader's attention?
Laura; I'm glad you enjoyed it.Clarissa; Thanks for letting me know!Margot; Exactly. I'd venture a guess that if the writer is stifling yawns, it's not exactly a good sign.
Very nice. And a good reminder, too.
Beautiful - it is a gift :)
Looks like the kind of story arc I enjoy most when reading, especially the fast-moving twists and turns part. Clever post, Elspeth.
Love this post, thank you Elspeth!
