Meg always has great ideas and this is one of her best. I've been having such a great time visiting all the sites of the writers attending the Ball. It's really nice to read all the personal info and connect it to the blogger.
I am a non-fiction writer...have tried fiction but find it too tedious for me and it just takes too long....all that character development and dialogue writing. I find writing topical articles and essays so much easier.
Almost a year ago, I gave myself a challenge by deciding to write a memoir about the 16 years I have been an owner/innkeeper of a bed and breakfast in Louisville, Kentucky. As it turned out, writing a memoir is much more of a challenge than I realized and just as tedious and time consuming as writing fiction.
I am in the process now of re-writing the whole manuscript and trying to infuse the pages with my own unique voice. I've actually discovered the humor and sarcasm lying behind that perfect grammar. In addition, I'm adding dialogue, some character development, and a lot more description....all fiction writing techniques.
Thank you all for visiting my site. I look forward to seeing more of you soon.
