What Do YOU Think?

I’m interested in getting your thoughts about stuff I see and hear, quotes I read, stuff that passes as knowledge – and starting an authorey conversation.

Brilliant, a thousand times over.  I want this on a t-shirt. Goes along with throwing rocks at your characters.

Brilliant. Brilliant! BRILLIANT!

Understanding this, using this, will make your stories better in ways you cannot even imagine. Possibly the best thought about writing, ever.

    1. It’s that simple, but surprisingly it’s very hard to accomplish. Think about it. You have to almost be telling two stories at the same time and hiding one. And you pretty much have to know you’re doing that from the beginning. Then you have to go back and make sure you didn’t make any mistakes, but that you hinted enough to where it makes sense when the big reveal comes.

      So, sure. Simple.

      And, yeah. 42.

        1. We had such a good time. Lucy was the ultimate hostess, showing me the best Cambridge has to offer – and on top of that we had amazing sunny weather. Of course, you know that because you were nearby in London, but Cambridge was beautiful and Lucy was absolute perfection. Can’t wait to go back!

          We did four different “Facebook live” broadcasts, too. You can check those out on my Facebook author page! You’ll see how much fun we were having.

  1. A variation of the military maxim ‘No plans survives contact with the enemy’….. ‘No plot survives contact with the characters’ (well least in my books!).
