Apparently a classic d word to describe me is determined. These posts are about feelings and behaviour and although I am determined and approach everything I choose to do in that way, I don’t feel determined. I feel dangerously dreamy. Dreaming of the finished blog posts, the visits to others, the comments on my words and sketches.
My draft novel ‘Dream gardener’ has a wonderful dreamy theme and although it’s my usual scenario of a family who has issues to deal with and, as usual, me wanting it to be chick-lit and it not wanting to be chick-lit, it’s full of peoples dreams.
My fictional dreams are of watching the chick flic of the chick-lit that I wrote.. Since I’m not really writing chick-lit in the true genre sense, does that mean my dream can’t come true.. noooo.. that’s too dangerous a thought. I’ll keep my dangerous dreams and look forward to throwing popcorn at you if you laugh in the wrong place.. or, come to think of it, if you laugh at all.. wonder if they’re supposed to be rom-com?
Show don’t tell.
She was dangerously dreamy.
Boiling the carrots in washing up liquid was not the safest way for her to impress him on their second date.
Lynne’s AtoZ blogging challenge theme in case you couldn’t tell:
Linked to thoughts of emotions and behaviours, my theme is ‘I feel….’. Writers among you will be familiar with the phrase show don’t tell, for others it’s what every novelist tries to do. Authors want to show you the emotion and behaviour without telling you it. Trying to practice showing not telling, I have included an example in each post. I may have got it right, I may not have. Please let me know.
