Thanks so much for visiting me today! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.
Today's post is short and sweet, and I wanted to leave you with some words of wisdom on narrative from kid lit agent, Mary Kole:
When writing fiction, whether in first person or third, imagine yourself sitting around the dinner table retelling events to your friends and family.
This bit of advice has helped me so much. It keeps your storytelling vivid, your prose realistic, and voice genuine. Especially with revisions when you're reading over your work. Pretty much, if you can't imagine yourself saying it like it's written, it needs to be reworded.
BTW did you see the A to Z Challenge was mentioned in Nathan's Bransford's Friday blog post? Wow it's like a phenomenon! Get down to funky town and rock on, brothas and sistas!
Okay, happy blog hopping! I'm way behind, but I'll be making my rounds. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by here and comment. It means so much and I'm so very grateful for you!
