A post about my fiction work from my writer-friend, Diane Laney Fitzpatrick. Diane was kind enough to share.
We had talked (well, really wrote to each other) about elevator speeches. A tool we writers use to practice conveying what a story we are working on is about.
We write a sentence, 50 words, or 100 words. Then comes the question, “What are you working on?” Or “What is your story about?”
Pure. Painfully quiet.
In my master gardener years, I had never been shy speaking in public. I talked many times about plants to gardeners, perhaps too much.
Now suddenly, sharing 50 words about a make-believe greenhouse, paranormal cats and dogs, and a mystery leaves me speechless.
So thanks friend, for sharing.
