Today I'm enjoying the peace and quiet that can
only happen when all three grandchildren are at scout camp together.
Yes, an entire weekend without kids.
Trouble is, I'm having trouble
concentrating. I think it's the lack of noise. <sigh>
I've been looking forward to this for a few weeks, but now it's
here, it's no fun at all...
Speaking of no fun, last week I had the flu. It was a very
unproductive time, as I was off the computer for an entire week.
I am not a person who watches much television, so unless I spent the
time in bed, my only other choice was tv.
Now I know why I don't watch much tv. <g>
Anyways, I am back to normal, almost, and
now trying to catch up.
Mid August is the
Romance Writers of Australia
annual conference, and they have a fantastic line-up of speakers and
I've not attended an RWA conference for
about five years, but I have booked for this year's conference.
I know what you're thinking - writer's
conferences are expensive. Yes and no.
They are usually several hundred dollars, if
not more, but it's an investment in your education as a writer.
I opted to attend both the weekend conference and also the 'author
day' where the focus is on promotion.
There were so many great workshops on offer,
it was hard to choose. I am looking forward to it, but will
have to conserve my energy in the weeks leading up to the event.
Speaking of promotion, I've added a post to
Writer2Writer blog, and I would love for you to stop by and make
a comment. The post is all about author promotions - what
works, what doesn't. Please tell us your best ideas.
Our article this issue comes from Dawn Carrington. Titled
"Is Your Hero a Celebrity" the article talks about characters,
flaws, and more. This is an article well worth reading.
Okay, that's it from me [FIRSTNAME],
to sit back and enjoy this issue.
Til next time…

author sold 450,000 books!

people have the tendency to put celebrities on
pedestals, to think they can do no wrong because
they’re incredible singers or talented actors. Teens
want to be like their favorite star, women wish they
could have one date with a hot Hollywood hunk, and
men want just one night alone with a beautiful
actress or model. So it’s easy to see why a writer
will use a celebrity’s looks as the basis for a
character. I’ve been guilty of that myself. Looks is
where I draw the line, though.
create a character, I might use some of my favorite
actor’s facial features, height, or hair color, but
I don’t give my hero celebrity traits. I don’t
create him to be idolized. Most people who have
celebrity crushes or popular idols don’t want to
hear anything negative about their hero. In fact,
they will defend that pop star or actress with
fervency when, in reality, they know very little
about the person they’re defending.
Characters, on the other hand, need to be flawed.
You can’t expect everyone to like your hero one
hundred percent of the time. He can’t be 100%
perfect nor can he roll out of bed looking like a
male Adonis. Yes, he does lose his temper sometimes,
or, at least he should. He doesn’t always understand
his wife or girlfriend, and he makes stupid mistakes
that might just cost him the woman he loves with all
his heart. Why? Because his life isn’t anymore
perfect than he is.
