The beach is calm and relaxing. Had to come home to really rest. I certainly didn’t want to miss anything!
I finished the manuscript for Stroke of Innocence! Wrote at midnight till the wee hours of the morning … didn’t want to lose a moment of a long overdue vacation with hubby.
eBook should be available this weekend or Monday, June 1st.
Definitely want to write a blog on verb usage in 3rd person past tense. I never realized how easy it is to mix them up until I started questioning myself. What was past tense to tell the story and what was present tense in the character’s mind? I use the traditional designation of Italics for present-tense thoughts. I find George R.R. Martin the master of clarity in this regard … is it him or his editor? Either way, it leaves no room for confusion, whether you like his writing style and genre or not.
More to come on verb tenses after the novella is complete. I will share some tricks-of-the-trade in an upcoming blog for all writers: fiction or nonfiction; business; promotional; personal; all genres.
Keep writing, drawing, generating fine and photo art. Express yourself and your luscious creativity !
