F3: Father Figures in Fiction - Big Shoes Filled By Carol Healy

Posted on June 19, 2011 at 3:20pm 0 Comments

Are you struggling with character motivations? On Father’s Day, let’s step into some size 13 men’s shoes and dig into backstory. Every character has one, even if it never makes it onto the pages of your story. What happened to your characters to make them think, act or react to the other characters in your story? How did their fathers influence them?

Imagine yourself as the father in the following scenarios. How would each of these actions affect your characters?



WWW1: Web Wrangling for Writers – 12 Great Blogs & How to Corral Them

Posted on May 22, 2011 at 9:58pm 0 Comments

As a life-long learner in a town where the library is awesome during business hours and absent at night, I am thrilled that the Internet is always open.


“Wait!” Yelled Harold Humbugger, the writer in the back of the room. “I thought the web was a soul-crushing magnet that lulled you into a false sense of security, draining your time and energy as it saps the creativity from your fingertips?”


No, you’re thinking of that sci-fi movie. The web is the…

I think I was there around 1977-78. I used to help Karen with a dark bay Thoroughbred she was reschooling from off the track, I can't remember his name.

Not the same Odie, I kept mine till he had to be put down at 29, I had him 27 years.
What years were you there?

Oh my God I can't believe it, I rode there too! The horse that is on the cover of my first book lived there, Odie.

Hi Carol
Your photos are beautiful! Where did you ride on LI? I lived there for 20 years.

Hi Carol
What kind of horses do you have?
Yes it was great fun doing a book signing at the Washington International! AND getting to do it along with McLain Ward, Chester Weber, Beezie Madden and Rodrigo Pessoa. That was AMAZING!!

I didn't know they had mounted shooting events. I'd like to see that.
Our Maine coon now weighs 5.5 lbs. She never weighed more than 7.5 lbs. She looks as though she was crossed with a weasel. She is still active at the age of 22.

Thank you for sending the friend invite. Sorry we didn't get to talk more at the meeting. I notice your horse photos were taken at the Big E. Do you show there every year?
We, too are cat people. We currently have only one, a Maine coon mix who is a domineering, 22 yr. old. Very bossy and vocal. I will make time to chat with you at the next meeting. Feel free to e-mail me at any time after the 29th of this month.

Hi Carol:
I'll be sending you some info. soon on the Meet a Member column. I have the next few months set up, so that will make your task easier, though there are still details to know. I'll be in touch in the next few days.
Glad you're taking this on...It's fun, and you'll get to know a lot of people.
