Who Cares?

Who cares to read what I think about writing? I know I don't. Really. Why shouldn't you stop right here and hit your browser's back button and leave. Go on now, leave! You're still here, I see. Yeah, I can see you, biting your nails and thinking what is this blog going to be about? Is the writer going to admonish or bully me into something? No, I just wanted to get your attention.

I used the above paragraph to transport you away from your everyday(not a left-out word), the way only words can do. For a few seconds, you were probably wondering what now, another stirrer trying to rev up emotions. But, you see, words can do that and that's why I love to write.

For instance, I am currently working on a novel set in 1937 Atlanta. The main character (MC) is an eighteen year old black girl who moves from the deep, deep south where she was picking onions in. Stop right there, buddy!

This will NOT be about racism or Jim Crow laws or any part of history that has been drilled into our heads. I'm sick of it, I tell you! This is a coming of age tale of an eighteen year old country girl who happens to be black. It's a tale of loss, love and all that other wormy stuff that makes a great heartfelt book. I wanted to write something different other than mystery/suspense and paranormal. I wanted something fresh.

Transporting the reader to 1937 is challenging because nothing was the same. But I love learning about the era and putting a different spin on it other than prejudice. I hope that you will take the journey with me!

  1. Hi, KC. You mentioned me on facebook and I thought I'd check out your blog and send a thanks! As writers, we can always use whatever publicity we can get--at least the good kind!

    On facebook, you mentioned needing guestbloggers. If you're still interested, I'd be happy to obligue. You can give me an idea of what exactly you'd like to cover.
