Tell The Story That Excites You

Last night, we watched the movie Gravity, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. It was suspenseful from beginning to end and the cinematography was superb. I enjoyed every moment, the critics are raving about it, so why didn't husband appreciate the movie? As authors, we cringe whenever someone criticizes our books, but the truth is, we don't all have the same taste in movies or books. My husband enjoys comedies and old movies. I enjoy comedies, but I love a good mystery. I once heard someone say, "No matter what you do, someone won't like you." It's the same with the story you tell. Tell the story that you get excited about writing. If you get excited, it will come through the pages and others will enjoy it as well. Not everyone, but that's okay, too.

Until next weekend,
happy reading and writing.

O boy Tina , did I need to hear that today!
The other thing is that readers often don't review or comment online where others can see it. A friend said "I just loved Claire's Embrace - loved that girl." And yet, she didn't leave a review.

Still, writings in my blood, so I'm off to write my next book.
