Been by the sea

We settled into timelessness by the sea this past weekend.
It was the "shoulder" season. Fall nugging Summer but she came anyways. 
Very warm. 

Finishing up Gentian Hill by Elizabeth Goudge for this conference
next weekend. I always come back to Goudge to find her delightful
writing. Truths woven into the stories that mirror Scripture. Not many 
writers do this today. I can only name a handful. How about you?

Did coloring, zentangle, and lettering at the beach cottage. So much fun and
the time became still. 

Just found these narration ideas:

  • Write it shorter. (Reductio)
  • Write it from the perspective of one of the characters.
  • Write it backwards.
  • Write the same plot but change the characters and setting. {Note: I have asked him to only use this for fiction selections.}
  • Take a dialog and make it narrative, or take narrative and make it dialog.
  • Write it as a newspaper article.
  • Write it as a diary entry from one of the characters.
  • Ask 6 questions about it.
  • OR: Some other way of doing it that you thought of.
Don't you like the Corot painting?

It sounds like you had a great time. Zentangle? And coloring! That means you were relaxing. See you soon!
