Susan Speaks: More on Monday!


If you haven’t had enough of me today — and how could you have? — then head on over to JM’s place. Yep, I’m guest blogging at The Fiction Scribe today.

But read the outtake first ’cause it continues tomorrow.

    Very interesting post.BR/BR/I keep a notebook in my car — and end up pulling over a lot. And I love having my camera with me.BR/BR/I think sewers and rock stars could work — there are many parallels and possibilities!

    LOVELY guest post, Susan. One of my favourite bits of your writing so far (I thought I was the only one with the keys/glasses falling into the unreachable place/large body of water anxiety).BR/BR/Brava.

    I like your voice. This was very you. Your characters have such strong voices of their own, they’re like a bunch of other people guest blogging on West of Mars.

    Ahh, I see where you’re coming from. BR/BR/Does this mean you want more of me? (more of me does not equal less fiction; it just means more of me)

    Couldn’t figure out how to leave comments over there so will leave one here instead. Very nice post.BR/BR/It’s amazing what can inspire a story. Little things like you pointed out can be the catalyst to an entire drama. BR/BR/You’ll have to let us know if you do find a way to include that plant in your writing. Now that I’m feeling inspired, I’d better get back to work! 😉

    I think that is what I’m saying. I’m pretty sure your characters wouldn’t let you cut down on their ‘screen’-time, even if you wanted to.
