This bi-weekly Spotlight is on Ana Morgan
Ana blogs on “Writing Routines” at http://www.HeroineswithHearts.blogspot.com. Check out her next blog post on August 22, 2011
Ana Morgan caught the romance writing bug eight years ago. When she discovered it was harder than it looked, she took online classes and tackled weekly garden and cooking newsletters for her 100-share CSA. CSA members urged her to compile her essays into a book, and she became the gardening columnist for Northwoods Woman magazine. Ana is polishing a time travel romance, has finished a first draft of a western romance, and has an outline for a contemporary romance. She’s also the critique loop moderator for the From the Heart Romance Writers a RWA-chapter. She lives on an organic farm in the north woods of Minnesota with a
husband and more wildlife than she can count.
AS PROMISED, THE REVISED (CORRECTED) LIST FOR SAID. Thanks for your understanding.
This list is all about words that can be used to replace the word he/she SAID in your writing.
Personally, I think this is one area that takes time and effort on figuring out exactly what it is your characters or sources (if you are quoting someone) is trying to convey. You want to show not tell your reader what he/she is feeling in the words you use.
The last post I sent out was totally incorrect. I am so sorry for the mix up.
This was a reminder, yet again, that I need to focus on one thing at a time. Oh well, I’m human. Thank goodness, school is starting soon and my writing time will only be interrupted by my day job, ringing phones, construction workers (house is in the final, final stages of massive repair work) and minor other demands.
Where is my “Genie” when I need him.
I will repost the words to replace SAID in a few minutes. Thanks for understanding. The new list will be for the A words only, next week’s list, part 2, will be much longer.
While doing my weekly blog and website visits I came across “Romance Writer’s Revenge” a blog that has been up and running for a couple of years and offers a wide variety of topics. I loved glancing at the different pages and visiting the blogs linked to Revenge’s blog.
While reading, “Where’s the Sparkle?” by Marnee ~ July 27th, 2011, I found myself nodding and agreeing with many of her points. If you have a chance take a few minutes to stop by and check out this wonderful and informative blog. Don’t forget to check out the archives as well at http://romancewritersrevenge.com/
