Just got back after a long day in TO (That’s a local shortform for Toronto, for you non-Canucks) And though it was long, it was a thoroughly enjoyable day. First the TRW meeting where Claire Delacroix talked about how to write synopsis – something I haven’t tackled yet but know I soon must. And boy, was that ever eyeopening. She handed out a sample synopsis which I thought was pretty danged good. And then she spent the next hour or so telling us everything that was wrong with it. (I took about four pages of notes just from that.)
And then the critique group I’m a member of went over to a restaurant across the way and spent the next 3 hours just chatting – it was our first face-to-face meeting and may I say, I am impressed, as always, with the talent and the personalities of the group. I was honoured to have met them all.
And if you want a laugh for today, check out Blue Sue‘s blog – she breeds Arabian horses and tries to post topics that give details that a writer can use when writing about their hero’s (or heroine’s) horses – those interesting tidbits that make your writing more realistic.
Now I must admit I have fueled a few of her posts with my questions about horses, but I did NOT ask any questions that inspired today’s column! Today’s post is definitely one about romance – but not on the human side. If you have a delicate constitution, you probably won’t to visit, but you’ll learn just why we use the phrase ‘hung like a horse!’
