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.

I discovered this by accident and now I’d like to write every day as though this were tattooed on my forehead.

When I made ONE character act this way, she became the favorite of everyone who read the story. (Yes, it was Sam in Poggibonsi.) You can do it, too. It’s exhilarating. You must do it. This is a t-shirt, poster, type of concept. You must do this. I’ll do it more.

What are YOUR thoughts on this idea?

  1. Dick Francis was a master at this; I read every one of his books, and after the first read began to expect to be entertained by his secondary characters, and he always delivered ! Great concept to move the storyline with gusto!

  2. I’d like to hear what others think. When I did this and submitted the manuscript for critical analysis, I was asked ‘whose story?’ Not sure what I did wrong there. The secondary character was a child and the book was a story about all forms of grief and how people, including the main character, expressed grief differently.
