Friday Round-Up - #174


Do you want to make your scenes stronger? Lynnette Labelle, at Chatterbox Chitchat, shares some hints on crafting scenes with muscle.

I liked her suggestion to start a scene with a happy character, but have them leave feeling sad or angry. Which tip is your favorite?

Have a blessed weekend!

NEWS FLASH! Congrats to Jeanette Levellie! You're the winner of Carrie Turansky's book, "Seeking His Love."

I like the suggestion not to end the scene with the character going to bed. Use some hook or excitement, etc. That is why I am up at three a.m. reading some times. I wish the character would go to be so I could. But, I get it.

Congratulations to Jen on winning your contest.

Hi Katt - I learn so much from reading blogs. I like to pass on the great stuff I find. :)

Hi Marja - You're welcome.

Hi Jen - I hope you enjoy Carrie's book.

Hi Nancy - I've made this mistake in my writing. Maybe my next character will have insomnia!

Blessings,
Susan :)

Blessings,
