I was asked this recently.
Remember my Dog's Life I posted awhile ago? Months , actually. It was my first complete 'story'.
I never gave such things serious thought.
Looks like I need to.
For you who have visited me on a semi-regular basis over the past six months, what would you say my voice is?
My guess? Light. Airy. Fluffy. Humorous. Essentially, I'm a blasted Goody-Two-Shoes!! In permanent puberty.
If there's a bitch bone in my body, I've yet to find it.
Don't get me wrong, I can be bitchy. That's not the same as saying I AM a bitch.
How can I write convincing bad guys and gals? How can I depict an evil genius that gives you nightmares if the worst I come up with is a dog in clothing crisis?
I give a good running start on things, but similar to my swimming in a L-shaped pool, I veer away from the finish line to end up turned around in the leg of the "L".
(I really did that too)
Almost half my life is over, and I'm trying to discover myself. Is there a time limit on this journey? Besides the obvious...
How the heck do you cook Okra? I was told to: Cut off ends, slice in 1/2 inch coins, dip in in egg, drench in flour and fry in oil.
Ack! I added a little salt , even though I know I should not but it did help.
I want to write THIS kind of scary! A serious freakazoid type that has you screaming into the night - or at least diving into your closet.
