Yay, it's Friday! I'm giving away an autographed book in exchange for your help. I'm talking to you. Yes, you.
I am arse-deep in revisions right now, and as I read through my editor's notes, I'm noticing a pattern in her margin-comments. See if you can spot it:
"How does Nikki feel about this?"
"What does Nikki feel at this point?"
"How does Nikki feel?"
"What are Nikki's feelings?"
And your final clue:
"Yeah, but how does she feel?"
Did you guess the theme?
I don't think my therapist has been doing his job, because each time I see one of these notes, I think, oh man. Talking about feelings again. I might as well be a girl.
Okay, I am a girl. But I've never been very good at expressing feelings.
Sure, I've had feelings. But when that happens, I usually take two aspirins and go to bed, trusting that by the morning, they will be gone.
So, here's where you come in. Please leave me a comment, and tell me how you feel about something. Anything. It can be an emotion:
ex: I felt angry
or it can be a physical reaction:
ex: The blood rushed to my cheeks.
I'll draw a name from the comments, and that person will win a signed copy of Kiersten White's PARANORMALCY.
What do you think? Can you help a girl out?
On your mark... Get set... EMOTE!
