Only two more weeks until the announcement of October’s gift card winner. If you haven’t left a comment yet about your favorite book, do so now! In just a couple of days my family and I will be going on a mini-vacation while many in Egypt celebrate Eid Al Adha, so there may or may not be a blog post next Monday. But I’m hoping that I will be able to do an early post with the help of author, Sherri Wilson Johnson, who will be promoting her new novel, Song of the Meadowlark.
Up until 2 seconds ago I was at a loss for what to write about. But then I prayed and this is what popped into my head. Cornflower blue. Yes, that’s right, cornflower blue. Why? You might be asking, would that pop into my head? Well you see, I’ve been doing some critiques for our writing group at ACFW and it seems that whenever a character is being described, and if they happened to have blue eyes, they are described as…you guessed it! Cornflower blue. After the fourth or fifth critique in which one of the characters had cornflower blue eyes, I started adding a little note for the author, “Is there any other way to describe blue eyes?” Of course, once I submit the critique I rarely hear back about any changes made to the drafts by the author but it left me curious. How would YOU describe blue eyes?
Until next time-keep writing or reading…or both!
