  1. This is good advice. I usually skip over long or recurring accented dialogue. It drives me nuts. When I'm reading a story, I don't want to have to work that hard to actually read. I'll happily think about the story and its elements, but I don't want to have slow down to make sense of the words.
  2. I was thinking about this recently. The "something in between" might very well be what those storytellers who wrote Great Expectations, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Little Women (among myriad others) mastered. There's a little bit of everything, and the characters are somehow endeared to us when we meet them in the mundane. We feel compelled to follow them. I have no idea how those authors did it, but I'd be happy to learn how.
  3. There can definitely be too much tension, too much drama, too much angst. No one should get to the end of a novel and feel like she needs therapy on behalf of the protagonist. Some people might like it more than others, but it certainly is not my cup of tea.
  4. I would recommend this as well! Great book.
  5. Beautifully said! Enjoy your break, Sarah!
  6. A Christian author I like recommends this one: https://westcoastchristianwriters.com/
  7. Thanks for the encouragement, Claire!
  8. Every November I think I'll try Nano next November. Maybe this year I should just go for it. Or maybe I shouldn't. See my problem? 🤦‍♀️
  9. Book fairs at schools could also be a good avenue for exposure. Also (speaking as a teacher), it's easiest to recommend books that I own and have read. It might be worth considering making free copies available to teachers.
  10. My husband told me about this a few days ago. It's total bunkum! And there was a picture in the article he read that showed the plants. I laughed when I saw some of the brown, drooping leaves! I guess they don't do well with too much carbon dioxide...
