This week has begun on a high note:
There was a falcon on the bird bath and moose out by the side of road eating his breakfast.
This will be illustrating some new authors TO ME and their books. Most of them are on their sophomore book. I got that expression from the Drew Carey show. He stated that the third show is considered the sophmore show, so I borrowed it for my description of the books.
PARTS OF A MYSTERY BOOK
I decided that I will address some aspects of the book that really irritate me (my pet peeves):
Here are a few:
- a sludgy middle
- too much from the previous story/book
- a character switch (I remember this quote, but not who said it; “the reader should know as much as the author.” Translation: I don’t like transition that come out of no where just to satisfy the ending.
My blog plans are listed above.
Finally . . .
I am going add another page to this blog for my story. I will be writing a mystery (not a big surprise) story. After reading the interviews from Mystery Thriller Week, I think it would be interesting to illustrate the process.
Let it all begin!!!
