Hi Gail!

If you are interesting in writing, in getting rid of those ideas in your head by putting them to paper (or screen), there are several steps to take. But step one, the basis of it all, is reading. If you want to write, you read. You read voraciously, as if your life depended on it. You read before going to sleep, you read in the bathroom, on the bus, waiting for the waitperson to bring you coffee. You read at stoplights and at work when no one is looking.

Before, you read for story. Now you start reading for technique. Go look at your bookshelves and take down books that have moved you, that have made you laugh and made you cry. You read them straight through, probably fast. Now go back and read with a critical eye. Where exactly were you moved? And what was it? The dialogue? The plot? The quality of the writing? All three?

Copy out the sections that you found thrilling and drill down. Then pull your focus back out and look at the pacing. Many good novels are divided into three acts, just like movies. Did you find that with the books that touched your heart? Was there a Black Moment when all seemed to be lost? Did the protagonists triumph in the end? How?

The characters--how do they grow? How do they shed their past and move into the future?

Did you know that books have beats, just like music? Moments of tension, moments when the tension is released. Major beats with the main protagonists, minor beats with the secondary characters.

Study the books that you have loved in your life and you will gain an appreciation for the art of the men and women who created them and you will begin to see that the ideas in your head are starting to take shape!

Good luck! Lisa Marie Rice(less)

“She would never tell him and was ashamed to admit it, even to herself, but she’d fallen in love with him the instant she’d seen him. She’d been taken at gunpoint to the alleyway outside a gallery showing her paintings and had seen a powerful man, not tall but immensely broad. He was facing three armed thugs and he hadn’t looked frightened at all.
He’d looked dangerous.
And she’d fallen.”
Lisa Marie Rice, Reckless Night

“Hey guys, stop locking antlers. The smell of testosterone is overriding the farts.”
Lisa Marie Rice, Dangerous Secrets

“With a vicious curse, John wrenched the steering wheel and brought the SUV to a sudden halt by the side of the road. He stared ahead, breathing hard, and then lowered his head to the steering wheel.

"Fuck." His voice was the merest whisper. He turned his head, eyes bleak. "I can't do this, Suzanne. I can't give you up to them."

"You have to." Her heart was cracking open. There was no question of holding back the tears now. "You have no choice."

They moved at the same time. She launched herself into his arms at the same moment he opened them to haul her onto his lap. They kissed, violently, hungrily, a meeting of lips and tongue and tears. Her tears. He wasn't crying, but she could feel his muscles tense as rocks beneath her hands.

He was holding the back of her head tightly, while eating at her mouth, as if he could fuse them at the lips. His tongue was deep in her mouth. She'd take the taste of him to her grave.

"Don't go, goddammit. Stay with me." His voice was thick and gravelly. The words came out between biting kisses. "I. Can't. Stand. To. Let. You. Go.”
Lisa Marie Rice
