Tuesday Twitterings

I've been working on a short story...well, reworking one I had finished actually. Both my critique partners told me they "couldn't feel the love." Okay, I'm the first to admit I have trouble putting emotion in my work. I finally figured out why. When I write, I SEE the story in my head.. much like watching a movie. When you watch a movie, you grasp the feelings and emotions from the expressions and actions and what's said. So, you aren't actually IN the characters' minds. However, in a book, you need to be. So... I'm rewriting the whole thing in first person, and I think it's going to work. If you are a writer, how do you deal with the whole emotion thing?

BREAKING NEWS
The Wild Rose Press is living up to its reputation as being a publisher that grows writers. They are starting a new service for writers, The Rose Trellis, The Wild Rose Press Critique Group. I don't know, as an author, what I would do without my critique partners. IMHO, good CPs are essential and I recommend any author who truly wants to grow as a writer check this out.

You Should Visit Mexico



You can be as comfortable as you want, eating fast food and partying with English speakers in resort town.

But if you're feeling brave, venture out to Mexico City - or explore the tropical Yucatan.



YEA! Marianne and I are going to Mexico!
