Evocative Author Interviews - Would You Kill off Your Ex-Lover in Your Novels?



Authors are an interesting bunch. We already know their brains work differently than non-authors. After all they create characters, then throw them into settings and situations that can range from torturous to glorious. And after the characters struggle for a while, the authors decide their fate. 

But what are Authors really capable of? Over 25 writers participated in this question: Would you kill off your ex-lover in your novel? The result... Be careful who you date.

Guess how many would do it... and gladly.

Author Name

If an EX broke your heart, would you kill "the darling" in a novel?

Where can you connect with this author?

Cheryl R Cowtan
Depends on whether he maliciously broke my heart or just trundled on my love because he was ignorant and young, and whether I was a difficult partner. That said... can I think of a couple EXs I want to "put down"? Yeah, maybe...
Carmen Madison
I guess it would depend on how bad the break up was.

Yes
Sheri-Lynn Marean
Sure, that might be fun!

I wouldn't do it because of heartbreak, but maybe I'd do it because of betrayed friendship.
Melinda Kucsera
I might have to do that. It sounds cathartic!

A lot of my work is motivated by heart-breaks of the past, but the mood is one of sadness, not vengeance.

How to Use MS OneNote to Organize Writing Research and Novel Outlines for Writers

Let’s Get Organized  Writers take a gazillion notes.   I don’t have to tell you this, because you know all about it. You also know how difficult it is to organize notes, search through paper notes, and sometimes even find all the notes you've written.  In this day and age, going digital is the best way to keep track of your notes. If organized properly, digital notes are sortable, searchable, editable, accessible from anywhere, and light as a feather to carry around. In this blog, I'm going to show you how to be note-efficient. ____________________________________________________ The following is an excerpt from "Technology #WritingTips for Writers".

Netgalley Comparison Review - Is it Worth an Author's Money and Time?

NetGalley has over 175,000 reviewers, media, booksellers, bloggers and librarians!  NetGalley is a conduit for authors to get their books noticed, read and reviewed. Many years ago, I was a reader for NetGalley. I thought it was a great deal - getting free ARCs in exchange for honest reviews. However, what I found was that I would load up too many ARCs and then eventually lose interest in writing reviews. I'm sure there are many readers on NetGalley who have experienced the same initial enthusiasm followed by a decline in activity. That's why if you're going to invest in NetGalley, you will want to have control in choosing your own reviewers. Reviewers are rated on their activity, so you can sort through those who don't follow through using the NetGalley dashboard. NetGalley offers an incredible dashboard that allows you to control who gets your books, which also ensures the readers getting your novel are interested in your genre. Readers who aren't might

How teaching is more than just handing out home lessons - Corona Virus Education

HOW TEACHING HAPPENS IN MY CLASS I’ve been teaching for twelve years at an alternative school, working with students who are at risk. Ever heard that old saying, “Those who can’t, teach”? Well before teaching, I was a Social Worker, a Newspaper Journalist, an Internet Business Consultant, Web Designer, eMarketer and Published Author. Now, I teach. I love teaching. I love bringing all my skills from life to the classroom. And I love being challenged by the changes in society and technology that encourage me to step it up in the classroom, each year. But I also love all the new skills teaching has given me.  If you are in a situation where you are delivering lessons because of COVID-19, here are a few insights on how I deliver learning that might make your journey easier. Let's start with some universal tips. Tip #1: Always remember what you are teaching. Do you want them to learn how to reflect on their cooking? Then you aren't marking spelling in their written ref
