Hey, Hey, Hey!!! It's Wednesday!!
How in the heck is the week treating you?!
Mine? It's about to get a whole LOT better! Tomorrow is my date Dr. McDreamy! Wah-hoo! I'll be getting the 'deets' as to time and place sometime today and after that . . . it's all over but the waiting!
All I can say is, "Oh, chocolate and diet coke, how I have missed thee!" This mama is gonna take it slow on adding back the flavor- aka the fat!- back into her diet. It's been almost two whole months of living off a Survivor style menu, but I did say good-bye to over 20pounds!
Ha! My hubby has already planned what dish he's cooking for dinner tomorrow night! Aw! What a sweet guy! So, keep your fingers crossed for me, but don't worry, there is an author ready to get grilled in the TLN Hot Seat this Friday. lol Ain't schedulers a grand thing?!
On to In Pursuit of Love news . . .
I've been a VERY good girl this week. (for once *wink, wink*) I've been writing everyday which wasn't something I was doing very often. I realized I hadn't been making my writing as high a priority as I should have. Being a stay-at-home with two young kids there is ALWAYS something that needs to be done, but I need to remember to take time for me. lol I've got to admit, I've been a lot more relaxed!
Here's my progress report: 3368 words since Sunday! I'm not going to kick that out of bed for eating crackers! lol
The new RWR arrived in my mailbox yesterday. An article caught my eye and I thought I'd ask the Q here.
Does a book have to have a "hook" on the first page to keep you reading? If it doesn't have that witty first line, but, maybe a clever and strongly written first paragraph or page, would you keep reading?
I went to the grocery store and, of course, stopped by the book rack (shh! our secret!) and I scanned the six Regency books offered. It was very intriguing to see what constituted a "hook". For some, it was that 'snag-ya' first line for others it was more of a clever lead-in.
Amazing how even a trip to get a nightlight and a box of cereal turned into a writing lesson!
So, tell me, how do you set up your "hook"?
