Yeah, I know, it's been another couple of weeks with me playing hooky.......
WELL, IT'S SUMMER!!!!!!
I've been busy doing lots of nothin'.
This is something for which I am eminently qualified.
I have had a LOT of training, so for those of you at home, it may not be safe to try this yourselves.
I have discovered the world of paranormal writing.
the list goes one and on.....
Sometimes it's just great to get away from anything that is remotely real.
The Newspaper is enough for me these days, and I read two.
But one thing I don't like in my books is lots of gratuitous sex.
I find it boring and jump ahead to when it's over.
After all, at my age.....
been there, done lots and lots of that.
It's not boring to the participants....
but it's very boring to me to read about it.
The author just needs to write:
"the sexual tension built, and then things took their normal course of action....."
The dot, dot, dot, is where the reader can add all the juice she wants.
That's just my editorial opinion.
The thing is;
if I'm reading a book for sex, then this stuff is great!
But if I'm reading a book for plot and character development;
this stuff is just filler,
and uses up good pages that could be telling me more cool stuff,
like there are all sorts of dimensions all around us with walls thinning in places where the inhabitants are sneaking through!!!!!
They look just like us, but can't talk because in their universe they use telepathy!!!!!
Stuff like that.
That's good stuff!!!!!
Although I'm Jewish, and not big into any religion.....
I find I LOVE the Mormon writers.
They love to write supernatural stuff, and they add a little romance, but leave the dirt at the door.
Now don't get me wrong!!!!!
I used to be a very dirty girl!!!!!
It's just that in my old age,
IT BE BORING!!!!!!!
It's like living a life of eating ice cream sundaes.
Loving ice cream sundaes.
Trying all different kinds of ice cream sundaes,
By the time you're in your 60's,
you really, really don't need to read any more about ice cream sundaes.
if you'er reading a book with a real fun plot,
and the heroine is checking out an ice cream sundae.....
all the book needs to say is that she REALLY liked that particular flavor and felt great after eating a whole bowl of the damn stuff!!!!!
I don't know how I got to this.
I was going to write about creating a better floor plan for a really tiny house.
I'll write about that next time.
In the mean time,
If you have any authors you love that have aliens or supernatural characters within their pages, please let me know!!!!!
Another thing I need help with is.....
What to name my fabric line, if I ever get it off the ground.
I was thinking: Betsy.
'cuz that's my name.
On that note,
