Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
I'm at the "coloring in stage" of my sequel to Lord Skyler and The Earth Defense Force. The name of the sequel is The Universe Calls.
The coloring stage is where I read through a scene and I freeze the moment and look around the room that the characters are in. I see everything that is in the room, some of it I'll end up describing.
Sometimes I'll look for something in the room that brings up a memory for the
character that is inportant to the character and the moment he is in. Its the
part in the book where the warrior comes in and sees the wilting rose that his
dead lover gave him before she was killed by the enemy. The curves of the
pedals, the hoplessness of the bent stem. Its describing the room and how
"things" relate to the mood and the story.
