A blog about writing and all things story…
|Hubby, Joe, our secret place|
This morning I woke to 96 e-mails in my in box;
traumatizing weather, terrible politics, upside
down religion, what not to eat and how to avoid
making BIG money mistakes, and then of course,
more politics and a lot more devastating weather.
Heavy sigh! That was all before my first cup of coffee.
So instead of reading them, I deleted them (I know,
I’m a terrible citizen of the doom and gloom) and instead I watched a little clip (U-tube) that my friend Maureen, who sends me lots of animal clips and pics (thanks Mo), and sat back and finished my coffee while it was still warm. Well, sort of warm.
What does this have to do with writing? Everything. If you engage your reader in a story with a message, they’re much more likely to get said message if delivered by cute little penguins than if it’s delivered by the likes of a camouflage wearing –tree-hugging-long-beard-angry-nature-terrorist or an X-Vice Pres. Cheney type. Note who produced the penguin clip. Have a happy penguin type of day.
