What Do You Want Me to Write About?

tell me what you want me to write pinterestHey, everybody!

I’m making myself a bit sparse this week as I’m in the middle of moving. But I want to take the opportunity to flip things on its head this week and ask you to tell me something.

What would you like me to write about?

Is there a writing subject that’s really got your interest right now?

How about a gnawing question you just can’t figure out?

In short, as I start gearing up for a new round of posts and podcast episodes, I’d like to make sure I’m serving your needs as best I can.

Leave me a comment and tell me what post you’d most like me to write for you.

And thanks!

    I’ve been looking at your structure database, which is amazing. I’d love to see some more examples of scene sequel breakdowns in this kind of format.

  2. I’d appreciate your thoughts on stories with ensemble casts. I’m writing a story where two characters are playfully retelling a story that they’re part of, but they aren’t the primary focus. All of the characters relate to the plot points in their own way, each pursuing their own goals, but I’m concerned that the reader may have trouble keeping up.

    I am trying to understand the role of the love interest more fully. Do they have their own plot points that they hit along with the main protag? If not, how do I plan their storyline?

  4. A little late to the party, but if you’re sticking taking ideas, how about something involving the sense of smell? Rather, DON’T forget the sense of smell.

    Once I read a certain cozy mystery where the M.C. gets hopping mad that her “sometimes boyfriend” dared suggest she sell brownies made by his old (female) friend in her bakery. (Said M.C. is in a love triangle with two men and nobody calls her out on her hyprocisy.) Her idea for revenge is to add jalapenos to brownies and feed them to her love interest. Except in the text, she adds the peppers into the mixing bowl, and this is a book that advertizes recipes for the readers to try. I tried the recipe as the M.C. did it, and I smelled the jalapenos even when it was baking. (Like, she didn’t even hide the peppers at the bottom of the pan. It was MIXED in before.) So, the M.C. looks less than intelligent for not noticing that her “revenge” brownies would have a distinct odor even before she tried to give them to her boyfriend.
