Friday Round-Up - #127

My thanks to Sandra Heska King for this beautiful award. Sandy shares her poems and observations on life. I hope you'll visit her blog.

I'm passing this along to Nancy, of Boomers and Saints. Her blog is a regular stop on my rounds. I'm glad to count her as a friend and fellow-blogger.








Rita Gerlach, at InSpire, shares about connecting with readers on an emotional level.

How do you build connections between your characters and the reader?







Have a super weekend!

Congrats Susan! It's very well-deserved!

Wendy Paine Miller said...

Yeah for the award and I'll have to check out some new sites.

Build connections. Hmm. I try to make them as realistic as possible, with flaws and strengths and b/c I write women's fiction, I think a lot about issues that women deal with.

Hi Wendy -

I'll be doing an interview with a Women's Fiction author in about a month. Perhaps you'll find it helpful. :)

Congrats to one beautiful lady and blogger! You earned it, dear.

I hope I connect to my readers by making them laugh, then think.

Jan Cline said...

Connectng my characters with the readers is probably my biggest insecurity about my writing. I look forward to the interview to get some tips.

Author Jessica Nelson said...

Very pretty award. :-) I think you def. deserve it!

I try to make my characters empathetic with some kind of flaw/insecurity/problem that is universal. :)

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Jess -

Ooo, I like that - a universal flaw.

Blessings,
Susan :)
