Psst: A Secret #2 Adding Emotion to our stories

sisterhood of suspense

author 100 x 100When I was a tad younger, I went to a party with friends. At that time, a college buddy owned a moped shop. He was searching for a young lady to represent his store at an RV show’s beauty contest. I had modeled in college and knew I could do it, but should I?

After plying me with a couple of margaritas, he, my roommate, and another guy convinced me to do it.

In my later years, I’ve told this story, describing the (younger) contestants (especially the tiaragirl with blonde cornrows), the judges (one was a former professional football quarterback), and attempting to drop a few pounds.

The Magic Of New

Standard

sisterhood of suspense

Several years ago, I did a blog by this very same name. No, I’m not recycling blogs, because there is, definitely, magic in something new.

img_1015Back then I was awed by my Floridian, then-toddler grandson’s reaction when he saw snow for the first time. This time, I’m wallowing in my own wonder of something new—a brand new story idea, a brand-new manuscript.

Well, it’s not a manuscript yet. This book hasn’t even reached toddler stage, but is still embryonic in form. I’m at the part where I have a story concept, and I have my main characters. I’m interviewing them, which is about as fun as making brand new friends—even more fun, because I get to make these people just about any way I want them.

What I’ve decided to do is to introduce my fans—my mailing list—to these new characters first, as a reward for sticking with me book after…
