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.

THIS is what makes a story interesting. Try it. Your life will change because your stories CHANGE. Suddenly, what you write is a lot more interesting. It’s an imperative. Words to live by.


Lots of rocks.

Embracing this concept changed my writing forever. It’s more important than proofreading. And more fun, too.

What are YOUR thoughts on this idea?

  1. I believe it would cause everyone to think if you threw more rocks. I have never thought of stirring people by throwing rocks. I usually write what I think at the time, and leave it at that. I do wish you well as you pursue what you think would stir people to a new level.

  2. I think this is terrific as long as you don’t take it too far. Too far and you get “Perils of Pauline” type stories where the conflict gets ridiculous and exhausting to read.

  3. I agree! If everything is just hunky-dorry, then there is no suspense, anticipation, shock, surprise, etc. and that is what makes a good story. By the same token, too much is too much and finding that perfect balance is the key.

    1. It’s hard to do too much if it’s a well-written story. Most of the time we don’t have enough tension in stories and that’s why they are rather bland; and if they are well written, it’s hard to have too much tension. But it absolutely can be done! And too much is then too much!


  4. Throwing rocks is the fun of writing! And, for me, writing has been fun since I first held a pencil over a piece of paper and strung words into a sentence: age pre-first grade. (I’m too old to have been lucky enough to be exposed to pre-school, or kindergarten!!)
