Welcome to Share Your World!  

Melanie’s Rules:

I will post four or five different questions each week for you to answer.  There are two ways which you can participate.

  1. Create a Share Your World post.  Then post the link to that blog post or leave your answers in the comments box of my blog.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your post, title your blog post “Share Your World”  and link it to this post.
  3.  Ping-backs are activated, but how efficiently varies.  I don’t manually approve them, but sometimes they don’t show up immediately.  Why is an unsolved mystery.   For instructions on how ping-backs work, in case you weren’t certain, please click here.  You may wish to leave a link to your blog post in the comments just to be sure.  Thanks!

QUESTIONS

Pick three words to describe this past year.   (please keep them PG. Thanks). Lonely, Crazy, and Unruly!

What were the best books you read this year?   Or the best movie you saw?  I am reading craft books on writing (I finished a novel this year) and my favorite so far is “Save the Cat Goes to the Movies” by Blake Snyder.

Because there was lots of time for looking inward, what is one big personal lesson you learned this past year? There are still some good people out there despite what we see in the news.

Do you think Covid has strengthened or weakened societal bonds? In some cases I would say weakened as we have been forced to stay away from each other, but there have been so many cases of people helping others that they normally wouldn’t do.

Winter Trees

By Tessa Dean December 2020

the trees sway madly

remaining leaves bound to fall

littering the ground


The Guidelines:

Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in English (the link shows you how) as my style, which is 5 syllables for the first line, 7 for the second, and 5 for the third, but you can use what you like.



The Challenge Words!

Exciting News

First off I am sorry to have been missing so long, but I am just getting over a severe case of colitis and my stomach is finally allowing me to eat solid foods, very limited solid foods, but solid foods. I was in the hospital for a week and a half and on 2 antibiotics to try to kick this out of my system. Now to make sure it is not an autoimmune disorder such as crohns, ulcerative colitis or diverticulosis I have to have a colonoscopy on February 1st! UGHHH!

Now for the exciting news. I have finally finished my novel. I wrote “The End” on Monday night and am editing now for beta readers which I will need volunteers for. If you are interested in beta reading a thriller/mystery/suspense novel let me know either here, at instatgram @tessawritesfulltime, or email terri_smeigh@yahoo.com. I need an email address in order to share a google doc with the reader. There will be questions at the top which you are not absolutely required to answer, but I would appreciate if you would, plus google docs allows you to add comments (I think you just highlight it and after that I am not sure how it works, but my first reader did it). This is my very first novel and I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a lot wrong with it. I didn’t read a bunch of craft books either.

Title – Murder in Angel’s Cove

Synopsis – philandering husband, 2nd wife suspicious and on the hunt, throw in a stalker or two and then add 2 murders and stir.
