H is for Horizontal

But not the way you think...

We've been talking about writing dangerously, and while I'm not ready to go THERE yet with my characters, I did throw them in some mud.

Literally. Well...Literarally, anyway.

They've got a golf cart stuck in a mud pit on a golf course. And one of them falls in. And the other one tries to help...And chaos ensues...and maybe a little stirring of something something...

And I haven't been so excited about a scene in a long time.

What curve balls have you thrown at your characters lately?

Hello! Sounds interesting! I was interested in your last post - do you know Alexandra Diaz's writing? She lives in Santa Fe, but came to the UK to do a writing for young people MA, where I met her. Her first novel, for YA, does not have gay parents in, but explores gay themes. Her book is called 'Of all the Stupid Things'. I write children's, young adult's and adults's poetry!

If you are interested, I'm leaving you my A-Z link as blogger always identifies me as my shared blog with other poets - my A-Z is this one: http://www.lizbrownleepoet.com

That's cute. I suddenly stuck a whole funny scene in the middle of my current book because I got a great idea how it can make a nice piece of the outcome at the end. I'm trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge Blogs this month.

Love this post! :)

And, I have to give a fist bump to all the A to Zers! I have tried and failed this challenge. :) I prefer to wave pom=poms from the sidelines. :)
