Great Rita! I love how you show detail in both dark and light examples. What I mean is, your keen eye and knowledge of the exciting field of . . . never mind; too much work so early in the morning.


Great post per usual, Rita! One of the things I don't like about "stripped down" writing is the lack of details that results. But I *love* details, so there you go...

Love the range of authors and quotes. Your post demonstrates the colorful details in the dialogue, too. Sometimes the narratives are rich, but the dialogue fizzles to basic, bland blather.

I meant that sometimes writers don't realize that their dialogue fizzles to blather. This post demonstrated how dialogue enriches details.

thanks for the clarification, Pat. For a moment I was worried that I wrote blathery dialogue, heaven forbid.

I love your voice, especially in Gladdy's books. Thank you for the smiles and the examples! My writing is really getting an education this week!
