PSALM 18:6-19

In my distress I called upon the Lord,
And cried out to my God;
He heard my voice from His temple,
And my cry came before Him, even to His ears.
 

Then the earth shook and trembled;
The foundations of the hills also quaked and were shaken,
Because He was angry.
 
Smoke went up from His nostrils,
And devouring fire from His mouth;
Coals were kindled by it. 
He bowed the heavens also, and came down
With darkness under His feet.




 
And He rode upon a cherub, and flew;
He flew upon the wings of the wind.
 
He made darkness His secret place;
His canopy around Him was dark waters
And thick clouds of the skies.
 
From the brightness before Him,
His thick clouds passed with hailstones and coals of fire.
 

The Lord thundered from heaven,
And the Most High uttered His voice,
Hailstones and coals of fire.
 
He sent out His arrows and scattered the foe,
Lightnings in abundance, and He vanquished them.
 
Then the channels of the sea were seen,
The foundations of the world were uncovered
At Your rebuke, O Lord,
At the blast of the breath of Your nostrils.
 

He sent from above, He took me;
He drew me out of many waters.
 
He delivered me from my strong enemy,
From those who hated me,
For they were too strong for me.
 
They confronted me in the day of my calamity,
But the Lord was my support.
 
He also brought me out into a broad place;
He delivered me because He delighted in me.

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…

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?
