There's nothing more motivating to create than someone writing a positive review or sending a positive fan letter. I write stories primarily for me. I write the stories that I'd like to read. That others enjoy my stories is just...incredible. Thank you, thank you, thank you.(less)

Make a schedule to sit down at the keyboard and write. The more you write, the better you get. Even after you're published, you keep on improving. So write, write, write.

I wish I had been more disciplined in my approach to writing before I was published. Everything else seemed to be a priority. A contract deadline changes all that. It would have been easier if I had accustomed myself to a disciplined writing schedule - and it would have been easier if I had a large inventory of unsold stories that I could have pulled out and fixed up (grin). Oh well...(less)

Good Read but not my genre

I don't read a lot of thrillers but this one sounded interesting. It's obvious early on that there's two murderers, but only one is revealed by book's end (and that reveal was a surprise to me :) ). But there were big issues

“William: My brother has an appreciation of art, so I imagine the woman he chooses must be beautiful beyond the pale. Once he outgrows his current predilection with painting and accepts his family responsibilities, he'll need a wife who can move throughout society. She must have proper carriage and be a witty conversationalist. She should have excellent bloodlines as well, in the event of offspring.
Emma: With the possible exception of a witty conversationalist, I believe you've described all the attributes of a racehorse.”
Donna MacMeans, The Education of Mrs. Brimley

“Nicholas: I know you, brother. You've been threatened with matrimonial pursuits before. Why are you really here?
William: I received an invitation.
Nicholas: Not from me you didn't.
William: Of course not from you, brother. Parliament would go up in flames before I receive a social invitation from you. ”
Donna MacMeans, The Education of Mrs. Brimley

“(Nicholas)"Am I dead?"
An odd question, but then she rememberd her mourning attire. "No sir, you are not."
He relaxed a moment, then turned his head slightly as if searching for other passengers. His brows dived in a scowl.
Am I married?"
She wasn't sure how to answer. His kid gloves hid any evidence of his matrimonial state, but his expression of instantaneous alarm and regret suggested he was referring specifically to her.
No sir, we are not.”
Donna MacMeans, The Education of Mrs. Brimley
