Friday Round-Up - #19

Kaye Dacus has an excellent article on writing dialogue. Unlike real life, conversation is condensed to the important stuff. I could elaborate, but I'll let you read the article.

Thanks to Inspire for giving me the, "I Love This Blog Award." As soon as I can figure out how to get the logo on my blog, I'll pass the "love" along. (All of you know how technologically challenged I am by now!)

My friend, Crystal Laine Miller, has a cool blog called, "When I Was Just a Kid." She conducts in-depth interviews with authors, complete with pictures from their childhood. Book drawings are sometimes part of the features.

Chocolate. Okay, now that I have your attention, I'm reading a book on the subject. Last Saturday, I poked through an outlet bookstore and discovered this little gem. Down the road, I'll be doing a book review, and sharing some of the things I learned about our favorite food.

Let's add some words to those WIP's this weekend!

Hey Susan,
I think your Friday Round-up is such a great idea. Have a nice weekend!

Hi Jessica -

I'm glad you enjoy this feature. If you have any special requests, I'd welcome your input.

Hi Susan,

I can't wait until your post about the chocolate book! When your finished reading, can you eat it?
Wouldn't that be a great idea? Messy, but great?

Hi Sarah -

LOL! Unfortunately, it's an ordinary book not chocolate. It does have a simple pink cover with a band of brown, presumably representing chocolate.

See you at your blog.

Susan :)

Hi Quiet Spirit -

I was so impressed with Kaye's article on dialogue that I brought it to my writers' group.

Thank you for your encouragement. It's nice to know folks are enjoying the blog. We've got some interesting stuff coming up in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!

Susan :)
