Shaken Not Stirred
Life - Like a good martini - sometimes you have to shake and not stir. It's the same with a story. A great premise might start out too slow, maybe the characters aren't threatened, their world is too secure. Maybe the romance has been forgotten as they wrestle thugs with machine guns. Okay, that is all pretty out there examples - or maybe not, it is romantic suspense - but you know where this is going. Revisions.
Shaken not stirred - rather like life. Sometimes you just have to shake things up. Don't just change a routine, turn it on its head.
So about today - any ideas for shaking up your routine?
