I’m doing the art sheet for 72 Hours, and I’m realizing that—yet again—I’ve managed to write a book with very little, if any, description of the hero and heroine. I like very little description as a reader because I make my own images and no amount of description on the author’s part is going to dislodge that visual. Clearly I write the same way. Which isn’t a bad thing unless the cover artist wants to know what they look like. Ummm…he’s tall, dark and romance hero-ish, and she’s a brunette romance heroine. She carries a Sig, and he prefers a Glock.
I also have to write the blurb for it, which is excrutiatingly painful for me. And this book, unlike Twice Upon A Roadtrip and Forever Again, has the added challenge of a suspense plot. So far all I have is a tagline:
Alex Rossi leads a double life, and it may cost Grace Nolan her son…
I’ll get it eventually. I just have to whine about it first, or as the husband would say, “Bitch and moan, bitch and moan.”
I’ve also got an inbox full of flagged emails I need to respond to. Then, just maybe, by the end of the day I’ll get to write a bit.
I’m with ya on the descriptions, Shan. I’m from the Hemingway school of reading and had to learn to do the other stuff in my writing. My motto – get it in on the first few pages, get out and get (it) on.
You’ll get there.
Anyway, you should ask him, If you’re the bitch does that make him the moan :lmao:
My husband blushes so red you can’t see where his longjohns stop and his neck starts. :rofl:
