Two aims today again: A-Z (K) and Celebrate The Small Things.
My theme for A-Z is What I Learned About Writing from Watching TV.
So so tempted to do Knight Rider and talk about how talking cars should be in every novel EVER.
Instead The Killing. (Original for me). This has a steady sense of dread and real atmospherics pervading it. Which befits a TV Show where the theme is solving a murder. The characterisation is good too, but the dark tone for me is strong.
Setting is important in a book. A lot can be done with a setting. Does it rain a lot? Is it a small town? Is the setting of the novel a contrast to the plot or an aid? Make it aid the sense of dread, if that’s what you are going for.
I was going to do a quote but instead THAT JUMPER. I want one.
The aim of this is simple: each Friday we celebrate a small thing from that week. Whatever you like! Sign up on the linky, post a celebration, and GO CELEBRATE others on the linky list's achievements. See here for more info.
My celebration is of course reaching K in A-Z. WOOO. I am enjoying thinking / talking/watching TV for this ;)
What are you celebrating this week?
Here's the linky...
