This is my third year doing the A-Z Challenge. The first year I posted on odors, which is something every writer needs to think about. You can paint a picture of movement and taste and feel, but an odor can really cement a scene. Plus they are the oldest of all of our senses, evolutionarily speaking.
Last year I did something just for fun – Renaissance artists. I took two courses on these artists in college enjoyed them so much, I wanted to revisit the subject. It was a massive undertaking,and my posts were too long, I now realize. My apologies to all those who really tried to read them!
This year my subject is….wait for it….ta-dah………. Maine!
You know that my Rhe Brewster mysteries are set in Pequod, Maine, and I’ve just released my second book in the series, Death in a Dacron Sail. I’ve tried to pull places from Maine into both books and am doing the same with the third, which is underway. So this year, I’ll take you on a tour of sites in Maine: old houses, ships, lighthouses and more- places that Rhe or Jack or Sam might visit. I hope you’ll like touring Maine with me!
PS And I’ll try to keep them short!
