Wherein I endeavour to share writerly advice lightened with humour, pictures and a dollop of 1930s-1940s history.
Elspeth, I truly have not come across a blogger as creative as you. You never cease to make me smile!
AA; Gracious! You'll have me smiling all day. Thanks so much!
What a clever post. AA is right, you are very creative in what you offer on your blog, and it is always so enjoyable.
I LOVE when you make these picture stories! This one is great.
Maryann; Thanks to you as well! Let's hope agents and editors share your opinion.
Carol; They are fun to do. I LOVE that people love them! I'm such a glutton for approval...pity me.
Elizabeth; You're back!! I'm so glad to see you reappear. I've missed your blog.
Karen; Thank you. I'll try to continue making you smile. It makes an interesting juxtaposition to writing about murder!
Yes, yes, yes. I love how your murderers look. Now I'll know who to watch for - scary grandma lady. Great post again.CD
I agree with Alliterative...I'm loving your posts of late. You're on a roll!Michele
I'm in awe -- not only in your creativity, but your patience in finding these perfect images.
Clarissa; Ah, but sometimes scary grandma lady turns out to be Miss Marple. Never judge a character from the outside...Michele; Thanks! Let's hope the roll continues! Or perhaps it may become a doughnut - no one knows.
Terry; Thanks! It helps that I think in a rather visual way, so these posts are quite easy to put together.
Elspeth - Thank you for this fabulous post!! I love the pictorial journey through the murder mystery : ). I think I like best where you make it clear that the sleuth or murderer could be, well, just about anyone. That's what makes mysteries so much fun.... : ). But, er, where are the blind alleys, and where is the red herring?!? ; )
Margot; You don't see blind alleys - they're blind. And red herrings are in the clues - no one expects a red herring to actually LOOK like a red herring!
Always enjoy these photos. Where ever do you find all those great photos? You're a master at telling a story with photos.MasonThoughts in Progress
I love your blogs in pictures! They are always so clever!
What fun you are! I wish we could sit and have a (drink picture here) and shoot the (picture of a breeze here)!
Fun :) I am definitely on that windy road!
Mason; The net is full of wonderful pictures and thanks for the kind words.WT; I don't know if they're all that clever, but I'm pleased you like them!Jan; I wish we could have a (drink picture here) (numeral 2 here)!Jemi; Better windy than straight. It's always more interesting to not know what's around the next bend, in my opinion.
This is really fantastic. I am almost tempted to print it out.You really should make a book out of your some of your blog posts.
Rayna; Do you really think so? What a kind thing to say. Thank you.
They say a picture’s worth a thousand words and you prove it! What a fun post.
I love these pictures stories!Do you do children stories, too?MaribethGiggles and Guns
I love them! Particularly your villain, who looks fresh from having tied someone to a railroad track. :)
Jane; Thanks! Too bad I can't put pictures into my manuscript to ratchet up the word count.Maribeth; No, I don't. Maybe someday...Elizabeth; Isn't he magnificent? There's nothing like an old-time, mustache-twirling, cape-wearing villain. Bring on the popcorn.
