Introducing the Caves: More Rooms to Explore

Greetings, all!  I have returned for my final installment of cave pictures...for now.  Today I bring you more places to explore.

Right this way, folks...

Knock, knock.  Does somebody live here?

Almost home...

A special place, perhaps?

There are things to see everywhere you go.

(Ignore the railings and electric lights, please)

Maybe this would be a good place to sit and think?

Thank you for joining me, everyone!  And I hope you now have an idea of the world that is so special to Amos.  See you around!

  1. Wow, caves really are beautiful. My family went on a hike last year through an abandoned mine. It was cool and scary all at the same time. We had little headlamps, but at one point we shut them off just to see how dark it was without any light sources. I kept quoting Lord's of the Rings.

  2. Oh, cool, Skye! What a neat thing to see!!!
    And, when I was in Grand Caverns, we did the same thing - experiencing the dark. I put a scene like that in my story because of it.

    1. It really is an awesome experience. I love it when you can use a real life experience in a book, makes it all the more real for the reader.

Character Creation by Emily Ann Putzke
My character in Ain’t We Got Fun is Georgiana (Gi) Rowland, the older sister of Bess. Their family is struggling during the Great Depression, so Gi takes off for NYC to make a fortune and help them out. The sisters recount their adventures, joys and heartaches to each other. My co-author, Emily Chapman, and I wrote this story in letter form in January. Our characters are very different people! Here are a 5 things that helped me bring Gi to life, and give her a personality that’s all her own.
1.  Give Your Characters Flaws None of us are perfect, so our characters shouldn't be either. Gi is a fun, loyal, light hearted girl with big dreams. But she has a flaw that she struggles with throughout the entire story. Pride. She’s very stubborn, independent, and doesn’t want anything from anybody.
2. Use That Flaw to Stretch and Change Your Character Pride gets Gi in quite a few scrapes. Throughout AWGF, she’s constantly battling with it. Everytime she thi…

Is that a catastrophe happening, way over yonder?

The next scene in my story is meant to be an important one.  Readers get to meet the dwarves in their own evil lair.  My heroine is tormented for their selfish purposes.  Big scene.

     But when I started writing it, it looked incredibly detached and boring.  "Yeah, look over there.  See those dwarves by the table?  They are tormenting our heroine.  Very sad.  The cottage is cute, though."  The scene just wasn't working.  And my story has been sitting in stasis awaiting inspiration.

     Last night, I flopped on the floor to daydream and snuggle my dog.  For a while, I let my mind wander here and there.  But gradually I came to my senses and realized that the first thing I felt on "awaking" was the hard floor.

     Suddenly, I was Moriah, regaining consciousness.  Hard floor.  Noises.  Light.  Hands on my hair.  And the scene came alive for me.  I could hardly wait to get up and start writing again.

     So, if your scene is too detached, try lying on the…

Rooglewood Countdown: 9 1/2 weeks: Why Yours?

Yep, time is picking up speed.  Especially since I have other things to keep me busy.
     Here is my questions for you today: what makes your story special?  In the comments below, I want you to finish this sentence "It's a Snow White story, but..."  Did you change the setting?  Is Snow White the ugliest in all the land?  How did you swap out the elements of your story to make it unique?
