“You’ve got about as much charm as a dead slug.” — Suzanne Collins

Thank you?

Do you have any characters that people will LOVE to HATE in your manuscript? To REALLY give your main character depth, don’t be afraid to stank them up a bit. No one is perfect after all. XOXO

It is the pen which dreams!

It’s #Writer’s Wednesday on Twitter, #WW and I’d like to send out a special ‘hello’ to all of my writing friends out there. I know I’ve said it before, (countless times) but you are so awesome. We’re now 1,500 friends strong on Twitter and I’ve gotten a chance to know a lot of you personally. If you haven’t said hi yet, don’t be shy!

Here’s a quote with a picture to go along with it for some inspiration – Happy #WW!

“A word is a bud attempting to become a twig. How can one not dream while writing? It is the pen which dreams. The blank page gives the right to dream.”
-Gaston Bachelard
Amen Brother. Go on and dream those little word bud dreams with your badass self. I know I’m going to.

A Charles Dickens kind of day

“There either is or is not, that’s the way things are. The colour of the day. The way it felt to be a child. The saltwater on your sunburnt legs. Sometimes the water is yellow, sometimes it’s red. But what colour it may be in memory, depends on the day. I’m not going to tell you the story the way it happened. I’m going to tell it the way I remember it.” -Charles Dickens excerpt from Great Expectations

Also, if I drop a tab of LSD the color of the story is gonna be trippy as hell.

“I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.”-e.e. cummings

Just thought I’d share a picture I took a few weeks back. Random drive-by’s make for the best photo ops.
