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.

  1. True, and a challenge to have the right balance.
    I tried to work out a theme in one book where there were covert actions being carried out by various factions and every spoke in allusions to previous conversations and actions of which the reader was not told…as yet
    Guess what?
    I forgot what I was actually writing about and who was who! 🙄 So none of it would tie together! 😫
    The only one who could get away with that was Raymond Chandler in ‘The Big Sleep’. Apparently he admitted he’d never figured out all of who had done what, where and when- but he had style!

      1. A John La Carre I am not!
        What’s worse I’m starting to drift that way again….No wonder I can’t get Volume Two of my trilogy started…Oh woe!

    1. But sometimes it’s more fun when the reader knows before the character discovers it; you know, when we’re leaning over the page whispering, “”C’mon, man! Can’t you see that ! ” and waiting intently for him to “get it” ! Then, when he finally does get it, we give a sigh of relief, and move to how does he wrap up this problem??
