Iris Chacon is like a trip to sunny Florida, from the horse country of Ocala to the playgrounds and beaches of Pensacola, Orlando, Miami, Key West and all points in between.

Good, clean, fun is the Chacon mantra, whether on white sandy beaches, on theme park thrill rides, or on the pages of a novel. A good book is a vacation for the mind and spirit, and Iris loves vacationing with quirky characters in quaint locations.

Travel through laughter and tears with surprising people, and see the world in its happiest colors. That's what reading can do for us. That's what Iris Chacon writes for us.

You don't have to be in the mood or particularly mystically inspired. You do your workouts to keep the machinery operating efficiently, you inhale what's in the air around you, process it near your heart, and exhale it onto the page. If you think you're "blocked," you're merely afraid. Michael Hauge gives a great piece of advice: "Don't get it right, get it written." Don't be afraid you won't get it exactly perfect, just write it. If it needs fixing, you'll do it in the next draft.(less)

Dean Koontz shared a note and highlight from
In the Heart of the Fire by Dean Koontz
The sky is the blue of a birthing blanket, the day newborn and filled with the light of innocence, when the air brakes of the bus whistle softly, waking him.
Most often, it’s good advice to open a story in the midst of action or with an ominous note. But sometimes I like to find ways to bury that ominous note deep enough that it speaks only to the subconscious. By opening with the birthing-blanket image and the reference to innocence, the suggestion is that all is well in this best of all possible worlds. . .but then the two words “waking him,” suggest that the serene sky and the light of innocence are figments of a dream, and that the waking world will not be as benign.

Dean Koontz shared a note and highlight from
In the Heart of the Fire by Dean Koontz
Life is a weave of infinite possibilities, though some are more likely than others.
Mere paragraphs into a new story, I worry that it won’t work, that at any moment it’ll come apart at the joints, but I usually start in a positive even ebullient state of mind. Not with this first Nameless story. I had written only one sentence when I realized the difficulty of persuading the reader to care about a character with amnesia for six novellas, a guy with no past and no idea why he’s compelled to undertake the dangerous missions to which he is committed. One of the ways I hoped to make him intriguing was to present him as a man who feels swept forward by Fate along a path “more ...more
