Friday Focus

Today's Friday Focus is a good one by none other than Stephen King.

Description begins in the writer’s imagination, but should finish in the reader’s."
Stephen King (On Writing)

Love that one!

This week flew by so fast, I didn't realize I hadn't blogged what I intended on blogging about yesterday until this evening (Thursday).  What the???  I am so behind.   And the kids only have a few weeks of summer vacation left -- where in the world did the past four weeks go?  =(

Monday's blog post will be what I had *meant* to post on Wednesday.  (I will get things together somehow. Eventually.)  If anyone has a writerly term for me to add to my list, let me know in the comments.  So far I will be "translating" MC, WiP, words along those lines.  

Have a great weekend!

I read Stephen King's book, "On Writing." A quote that I remember is "...kill the darlings." If my memory is correct, he advises us to give up parts of our work that we just loooove and think is greaaaat, if it just doesn't fit.

I should read it again. I enjoyed the book.

EnJoy your weekend too.

Time flies when you're having fun, so you're enjoying the summer!

Great idea on the writing vocab translations ... How about ARC Advanced Reader Copy for one of your translations?

Happy Friday :)
