Devastating Choice/Research/Billy Graham/Devo/Recipe


1. Zoe M. McCarthy talks about giving your characters a devastating choice. Either one will forever alter their lives.

2. Are you considering writing historical novels, but the research aspect is stopping you? Carrie Turansky guest posts at Seriously Write and gives her best tips on how to immerse yourself in another time period.

3. In February, Billy Graham, went on to his eternal reward. His life and ministry were characterized by integrity. The word, "scandal," never appeared in relation to either. Breaking Christian News reported on the principles he and his team lived by. They would be excellent guidelines for any minister/ministry.

4.  Lynn J. Simpson posts her thoughts on "an army of trust." She uses II Timothy 1:7 as her main text.

5.  My family and I are big fans of Italian cuisine. When I first tasted bruschetta, I knew I wanted to make this at home. Here's a great recipe from Rachael Ray complete with video. Have you ever made bruschetta? How does this recipe compare with yours? What ingredients/tips would you add to this one?

Writers:  Can you think of a devastating choice you might give your main character? Please share.

Readers:  Do you prefer books that get characters into major trouble without much of a break or do you like one main conflict? Please share your thoughts.

I have an onion and garlic intolerance so brushetta is out for me! But it often looks so good! I'm looking forward to diving into the article on research! I like when there is prominent external conflict in stories. It keeps the story active and a page-turner for me. Although, too much can also be a turn-off. The character needs a break from time to time. One very popular series I read ended with way too many of the characters dying! That led me to be dislike the book, believing the author went to far. Thanks for sharing a link to my place here too!
