WHEN EVERYTHING IS COMING UP ROSES, BEWARE OF THE THORNS!

FAIRYTALES WITH BITE

In When Everything is Coming Up Roses, Beware of the Thorns, I ask how your characters  react when things  are going well, then suddenly they’re not.  I also ask how they react when things are going badly for them but other characters are still doing okay (which is not always easy to handle). How do your characters handle adversity in general?  (A lot about their true nature can come out in how you show this).

THIS WORLD AND OTHERS

In Going Home I look at exactly what this means for your characters as they try to resume normal life after their adventures.  I also look at and ask about what a typical home would be like in your setting.  (I always thought the hobbit holes in The Lord of the Rings looked nice and cosy!).

I discuss a horrid video I saw on Facebook today which shows a book being gutted.  I know – a truly horrible thought.  Some people clearly have no shame…

Poetry conjures up images so beautifully. Image via Pixabay. See Sandra Lyn Gordon's wonderful poem on Chandler's Ford Today for another example of great imagery.
