  1. That is a great POV article, thanks for sharing.

    I also wanted to thank you for stopping by my interview yesterday. You wrote that you are in search of a critique partner. A great community of pbs writers on facebook is the 12 x 12 in 2012. You may have luck there! Good luck to you!

    Best,
    Jen

  2. Hi from the Buccaneer Blogfest! I'm Laura from RebelsOfThe512.com. Thanks for your comment on my bookshelf earlier this week.

    I would agree with your POV on POV. What's up with authors skipping around to all the different characters' thoughts on every little thing? I find that very frustrating, as a reader, especially when it doesn't seem to be done for any particular reason. I just read a book where every member of a dysfunctional family had their say, one chapter at a time. Maddening! I much prefer books that pick one view and stick with it, as "conventional" as that may seem. ;)

And we just got word that his wife's brother, (whom I love like a mother) died last night. So she is dealing with the death of her husband and her brother. Enjoy your weekend, my friends, and hold those you love close. You never know when they will be gone. I will return on Monday, and will have workshop classes every day next week.

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Here it is! My CP feedback edited story. Had a hard time with this, but I hope it makes sense. I've got a post I'm working on I plan to put up after Thanksgiving. Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day.  Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have
