A couple of wonderful things today. First, Janet Reid's post. Can I just say that I love this lady's way of writing things? I may query her, even if my genre is not her kind of thing. She's awesome. Go on, read her post for today. It's a writer's best friend.
I'm also reading Randy Alcorn's novel Deception. I've always loved Randy's plots/themes, but never noticed his writing. Until now. The beginning of Chapter Two just totally got me.
Here it is:
"In the mornings I go fishing.
By the side of my bed.
For clean clothes.
I seldom catch much."
Ch 2, Deception by Randy Alcorn
Wow, I love it! Succinct. Yes, this is an example of great writing.
