Today I'm celebrating a new UncommonYA Montage created by MELISSA WRAY. So many and authors with excellent realistic YA books.
Then there's always rain to celebrate. We finally had some of that wet stuff. Not enough, but it reminded me this is February, not July. Temperatures dipped to 50's!
Here's California from my deck last month. Had put all deck furniture away, thinking rain was sure to come. It did, but not much.
I'm celebrating sequels, too. Here's is the third HINT for WRITING SEQUELS. This hint comes from
Charles Ray, Freelance journalist/photographer.
He says, "I think the key to success to sequels (and, I have two going now) is to create histories for your main and principal supporting characters so that they're consistent from story to story. That's what I really like, for instance, about Sue Grafton's books. I feel that I know Kinsey Milhone because Grafton has created a history for her (that she occasionally reminds readers of) that makes her an interesting character."
