FURTHER FAIRYTALE HEADLINES

FAIRYTALES WITH BITE

Further Fairytale Headlines is another lighthearted post, following on from yesterday’s one.  See what Santa and Cinderella, amongst others, might have to say to the press.

THIS WORLD AND OTHERS

Decisions, Decisions looks at how one decision by a character should be the pivot for the whole story.  See Frodo Baggins’s example of deciding he would go to Elrond’s house with the Ring of Power in The Lord of the Rings.  Okay having the Ringwraiths sent after Frodo did help speed up the decision making process here, but it is the one vital choice Frodo made and it led to consequences for others, especially Sam.  So what vital decisions are your characters making?

BOOK NEWS – FROM LIGHT TO DARK AND BACK AGAIN

And talking of decisions, I am in the middle of working out with my publisher the kind of launch I would like for my debut flash fiction collection, From Light to Dark and Back Again (Chapeltown Books).  Last week I had the great joy of choosing my book cover (which looks fab and yes I know I’m biased, but I look forward to being able to share the image at a later date).  It is an exciting journey as it has taken a very long time for me to get to this point.  More details later…  am currently building a book page on my websites as well.

And away from the written word (a bit), I discuss the joys of swimming.  I had thought I would use the time in the pool to mentally work out plots, characters and so on but it hasn’t worked out like that.
