When my husband first learned to preach, his mantra was, “Tell them what you’re going to say, say it, then tell them what you said.” Actually, he used that in business, too. As a writer with word counts to accomplish, it’s a great temptation to repeat things a lot.

I think that, if I do it right, it works. If I do it wrong, it sounds dumb!

Here’s Safire’s “rule”:

“There has always been the wind.
Since our planet began to turn, there has been the wind. This ball of dirt and fire and water started to spin. The air stirred. And Earth's time began.
But the beginnings of the wind are lost in the mists of time. The wind blew before the Appian Way wended through Rome. It blew before the Parthenon crowned Athens. Before pyramids sprang up in Egypt.
Before the Mayans. Before the Incas.
Before Man.”
Kaye George, Death in the Time of Ice

“Imogene Duckworthy did not like pigs. She was fairly fond of cattle, having grown up surrounded by them. She hadn't been around pigs much. In fact, this was the first time she'd ever driven toward a pig farm.”
Kaye George, Smoke

“Immy knocked on his open door. "Mr. Mallett?"
The look on his narrow face was pained. "What's with the Mr. Mallett? When you don't call me Mike, it's usually trouble.”
Kaye George, Broke

“That's it, Uncle Huey!" Imogene Duckworthy whipped off her apron and flung it onto the slick, stainless steel counter. "I quit!" If only her voice didn’t sound so young.”

“There was that sound again--snap, then a footfall. She tried to whirl around as a dark form--Dear God--sprang with a splash from the darkness--grabbed her from behind, shoved her under the water.”

Stacy Juba I can imagine you're occupied! Goodreads requires a time for an event, but it's really going on for several days if you ever get bored. (which I imagine you probably won't have time to be bored!)

Kaye George Hi Pat! As you can probably tell, I have about two toes in this water. I'll work on it. :)


Patricia Gulley Thanks, we're friends so many other places we might as well do Goodreads too.
The discussions can be fun.
