I research their location, where they live and their education and beliefs. After writing a couple of pages on the main characters, (1-2 pages on the subs) I load all these pictures, dwellings, schools, maps to and from, city favorites (things to do there and best restaurants) the best websites and pics and when you look at all the material you've amassed, trust me. There will be no writer's block.
I prefer doing this to making an outline. Words can't help you find other words. But pictures will. Remember the saying? A picture is worth a thousand words. You'll have your choice of words and story with all these pics.(less)

I have since discovered that writing gives me the privilege of escaping to my own world, equal to reading. Imagine being able to create your own environment, dress it up with people you like, villains you can handle, situations you need to solve and happiness that will make you tear with joy. Nowhere else can you find this other than within the pages of a book ... you wrote.(less)

Christmas Miracle  The other evening, coming back from the mall, my arms loaded with parcels, the air descended on me crisp and cold, and when I blew warm breaths, puffs of smoke appeared in front of my nose. When I got home, the scene outdoors, the sweet aroma indoors engendered a perfect memory. I realize…

Let There Be Love is a story that kept me reading, and interested. And I didn’t have to skip over the violence or cruelty. The story is clean, yet still manages to tackle human frailties, which is my favorite part of any book, the characters.

“Opening Thoughts” in Flower Shields (a Four Horsemen Novel), drew me in.

Bobbi Cole Cole Hi Joss - hope you read and review my latest book Driven by Passion's Destiny and comment favorably. It is a powerful story of a paralyzed man overcoming tremendous odds to stand and walk with technological aids and with the loving support of the woman who has always loved him. And I hope you friend me on facebook. Think you are one of the best! Consider yourself hugged, girl. Bobbi Cole Meyer
