March 2

Today is the birthday of Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss), John Jay Chapman, Tom Wolfe, John Irving.

Tip: Describe your characters in a few words, but actions are better. And please, don’t use a mirror. That’s cliche. A couple examples: She braided her hair, letting it hang down her back to where it touched her waist. John had always loved the dark length but now there was more gray mixed in with the dark strands. Or: She loved the way she could tuck her head under his chin. It made her feel small–something that rarely happened. Not many could handle her nearly six-foot height.

Thought: Sometimes it’s simply best to rip it all up and start over – Chuck Leddy

Teaser: This is the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Write a short scene ala Dr. Seuss – in rhyme. And don’t forget the silly words. But make it mean something.
