Teaser Tuesdays, A Bookish Meme: Fast Fiction

Teaser Tuesdays
is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away. You don’t want to ruin the book for others.)
• Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR (To-Be-Read) lists if they like your teasers!

And here is mine for this week:

The book is a nonfiction one I'm almost finished reading, just in time for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). It's called Fast Fiction: A Guide to Outlining and Writing a First-Draft Novel in Thirty Days, by Denise Jaden.

My teaser is from page 181.

"As writers, we see our fully realized stories — what we intend the story to be — whenever we read it, and this often makes it difficult to judge how much of our intended sotry and character qualities make it from our brains onto the page. Without feedback, you might not realize that all of your diligent revisions are not fixing your story's actual problems."

You go, girl! I'll stick to being a consumer rather than a producer of fiction. The teaser on my adult blog comes from The Bad Boy CEO by Sugar Jamison (http://inside-dog.blogspot.com/2015/11/teaser-tuesday-bad-boy-ceo-by-sugar.html). Happy reading!
