Stretch Those Muscles
Is that a cute kitty face or what? My black and white tuxedo cat, Abraham, loved to brace himself against the bookcase and stretch to his full length. He'd make the same face as the cat in this picture. Then he'd march around, working the muscles in his legs in slow motion. After this display of feline flexibility, Abraham would settle down with a contented sigh.
I get the same satisfaction from working my writer muscles. Oooh, trying some new technique to make my character come alive pushes me to the limit. Mmm, describing taste sensations send me running for the chocolate.
Writers: Have you stretched your writer muscles lately? How?
Readers: Have you read anything lately that made you sit up and take notice? If you can recall a phrase that made you smile, tickled your funny bone, or made you wish you'd said that? Please share.
