I think my novels need a soundtrack of wildlife. My life has a soundtrack of wildlife. Mainly birds. I spend way too much time on twitter @LynneInPborough and am happy to chat there, mainly early in the morning, while I have my back door open and listen to the tweeting going on in my garden while participating in the online tweeting.
Before this challenge began I could be found tweeting #atozchallenge and, no doubt, will continue to do that. I don’t talk to as many people as I used to since I started writing and living more inwardly but I do chat a lot online.
Show don’t tell.
The birds were tenaciously tweetful.
Each morning the first thing she did before putting the kettle on was to open the back door to hear the birds singing loudly as they, too, woke for the day. The minute she opened the door the blackbird and robin increased the sound of their singing, reminding her that they were waiting for their bird table to be filled up for another day. Once the message was out that she was awake the Starlings soon joined in.
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.
Here’s who else is doing the AtoZblogging challenge.
