Every Story Starts With One Thought

Every year, millions of books go unwritten because writers are waiting to formulate the perfect storyline before putting pen to paper. Sound familiar? If it does, don’t wait any longer. Get yourself in front of your laptop, now, and start typing because the perfect plot, the perfect characters or flawless manuscript will only come to you when you do.

Every story starts with one thought. My The Guilty Woman novel started when I saw the sentence “OH GOD! OH God, oh God, is he dead?” in a book I was reading. Taking that one line, I got myself to my laptop and ran with it. I wrote whatever came to mind. From those few words the storyline began to formulate, and seventy-thousand words later, voilà.

Now, get to that laptop and start typing. Start to lay the foundation for a book. Your book. Write. Write, and write some more. Read what you’ve written closely. I guarantee that when you do, the book you were meant to write will start to come together with ease. The outline will flow, the plot and characters will come together, the scenery will formulate in your head, and before you know it, you’ve realized your dream.

Godspeed!

Welcome to Summer
I try to read as much as possible. As a back-up, for those super busy days, I always have an audiobook on standby to listen to in my car or on my walks.

Reading is not only a form of entertainment for me, but it’s conducive to my writing. Reading—or listening to an audiobook—contributes to minor things such as catching spelling mistakes to the more consequential vocabulary growth. This comes handy since English is my second language. At times, the passages I read are the inspiration for my next novel idea.

SG F is for Fugitive

F is for Fugitive by Sue Grafton is the sixth book of her Alphabet Series centered on Kinsey Millhone a tenacious detective based in California during the 1980s.

In this installment of the series, Kinsey travels from her home of Santa Teresa to Floral Beach so anticipate a change of scenery and a collection of new characters, which is a welcomed change.

As the story goes, the murder of seventeen-year-old Jean Timberlake shocks the small community of Floral Beach, a tiny beachside town. Bailey Fowler who confessed to the crime escapes shortly after being imprisoned, and over a decade later is recaptured and sent to prison again. This time Fowler’s father hires Kinsey to prove his son’s innocence. In her search for the truth, Kinsey finds that everyone in town is hiding a secret and all seem to have a motive for killing young Jean.

Grafton takes us on a wild ride by skillfully outlining the motives of the various residents of Floral Beach for killing Timberlake and keeps us guessing who the actual murderer is until the end.

A solid read and entertaining to the very end.

FUN FACT: In an episode of The Sopranos, Edie Falco’s character, Carmela Soprano, is seen reading Grafton’s G is for Gumshoe.
