But I do sometimes forget that Characters D and F are in a scene...and then have to go back and ensure they get worked back into the scene smoothly. As for a special technique, I guess it's just all in my head, so it's all in my head, if you know what I mean. LOL(less)

“A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong it is until it's in hot water.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

Oh, that's awesome, and I'd love to stop by! I'm on deadline for Book 8/Alien Research right now, but later in the month should work out great. Book 7/Alien in the House releases on May 7th, so later April is a good time. :-D

This would be my first Goodreads book club visit, so I'm not sure on how it all works. LOL Do we set up a time, just post randomly throughout the day, etc.?

Looking forward to it, whatever it turns out to be!

Love,
Gini
