I didn’t mean to neglect you all.
I think I’ve been distracted helping annamaria go through her Incantation Paradox manuscript. She’s been combing through it to minimize the word ‘and’. I didn’t realize she had the power to litter a story with the insignificant yet helpful little conjunction. And is a powerful tool to string sentences together, dependent clauses, independent clauses–I don’t really know what they are all called, but ‘and’ is very useful if not over used.
Anyway, once annamaria is done with the ‘and’ clean up she needs to go back and make sure she hasn’t used any other words too many time. I mean, I wouldn’t like to pick up a book and find that almost every other word in the novel is, let’s say, the name of the protagonist, or the word heart for instance. I want to read a good clean book.
Now, annamaria likes to mix genres, mostly sci-fi with fantasy with a dash of romance. Oh! she also likes to write about war… go figure! What kind of books do you enjoy reading?
