Book of the Month

Where the Crawdads Sing 

where the crawdads sing

For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life–until the unthinkable happens.

Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.

Quote of the Month

Atmosphere & Dialogue

quotes

by Colleen Green, Wright Writer of Dayton member

To show how to create atmosphere with dialogue I’m using a section from my book, City in the Middle. One version is the rough draft and the other is the final version. This will demonstrate the importance of creating a mood with editing. Below in this example, without the atmosphere of the pub and details of the main character’s feelings, it is rigid and uninteresting.

Rough draft of dialogue:

“Miss, excuse me,” a lady called out. “We’re ready to order now.”

I turned around and stepped up to her table. “Yes, ma’am, what can I get you?”

I took their orders as an Irish lullaby played. On the way to put the orders into the computer, I felt someone tapping my shoulder.

“Amber.”

I turned around.

“I’m Charles,” he said. “Henry’s big brother. He pointed you out to me when you arrived.”

“It’s nice to meet you.”

“You too. Could you to do me a favor while I step out for a few minutes?”

“Sure.”

“You see that table in the back with the ‘reserved’ sign?”

I looked over and saw three men sitting there. “Yeah.”

“I need to follow my dad upstairs to his apartment, so I have to leave for a while. Please keep an eye on those guys and make sure they are taken care of.”

“Will do.”

Notice the lack of emotion. Not many details about Amber’s surroundings as she waits on tables, and there is not much insight on how she feels. Now let’s add some details using the feelings of the main character. 

From book final version:

“Miss, excuse me,” a lady called out. “We’re ready to order now.”

I turned around and stepped up to her table. “Yes, ma’am, what can I get you?”

I took their orders as an Irish lullaby played. The violin combined with the flute to create a serene sound. On the way to put the orders into the computer, I paused near the stage, enchanted by the music.

Fiona leaned into each movement of the bow. She appeared to be living in the moment, becoming one with the music. For a few seconds, so did I.

I felt someone tapping my shoulder. “Amber.”

I turned around and saw a man who looked like an older version of Henry.

“I’m Charles,” he said. “Henry’s big brother. He pointed you out to me when you arrived.”

“It’s nice to meet you.”

“You too.” He smiled like his brother, with a quirky grin. “Could you do me a favor while I step out for a few minutes?”

“Sure.” I was surprised he was asking a newbie but kind of flattered that Henry must have told him enough positive things about me that he could feel comfortable enough to ask for favors.

“You see that table in the back with the ‘reserved’ sign?”

I looked over and saw three men sitting there. “Yeah.” One of them, a Hispanic man, had an unusual cane with an eagle head for the handle propped up on his chair.

“I need to follow my dad upstairs to his apartment, so I have to leave for a while. Please keep an eye on those guys and make sure they are taken care of.”

“Will do.”

Did you catch the parts that were added showing Amber’s feelings and what the characters were doing within the conversation? Did you notice the body language and description of the character’s appearance? They are in bold above. Pacing dialogue is tricky, but it can be done. Read it out loud after you write it to make sure it flows naturally.

Book of the Month

The Amulet of Elements

fantasy, adventure, romance, adult fairy tale

amulet of elements

Princess Ellyria Rose found her special places in the books she read. Imagining herself in far off lands, she would dream of the knight who might rescue her one day from her dull, everyday life of needlepoint and lessons on becoming a lady.

Princess Ellyria Rose yearned for adventure and on her sixteenth birthday she got her wish, being rescued by the man of her dreams. Little did she know that would prove to be an adventure she did not expect to have.

Betrayed by the very man whom Princess Ellyria trusted, and left at the mercy of her father’s enemy, she had to use her wits to escape; along with the help of the very man who led her astray in the beginning.

Danger unfolds time and again, revealing an ancient story about a princess and a prophecy.

Word of the Month

genesis

The word genesis can be traced back to the Greek gignesthai meaning “to be born.” When written with a capital G, it refers to the first book of the Bible, but it is often used in a non-biblical sense to mean “an origin, creation, or beginning.”

Play of the Month

Snow QueenHow Hans, Christian & Anderson
Melted the Snow Queen

By Lisa Like-Stokely,
Wright Writers of Dayton member

Somewhere between Camelot and modern day, between IPADs and poisoned Apples, between ballet and uptown funk, this fractured fairy tale brings the classic characters of Hans Christian Anderson to life. Thumbelina, the not so tiny dancer, who is transformed into a beautiful ballerina; Jenny, the diamond studded and care free Nightingale (Mae West character); Heny, the ugly duckling turned obnoxious comedian (a cross between Heny Youngman and Groucho Marx); Sunny and Share, the dynamic singing duck duo topping the charts at Swan Lake; the directionally challenged Princess Gardenia who unexpectedly finds romance; Bruno, the valiant tin soldier who dances hip-hop; and the appalling proclivities of the robe shedding Emperor, are all re-imagined into this delightful play for the whole family. Audiences will be pleasantly surprised to recognize entertainers from the past and present. Laugh along and find out how a diverse group of fairy tale characters and a trio of ogres work together to save the Snow Queen from her diabolical fiancé.

Book of the Month

ebook cover The Evil Within

Ever since Matt was born, Tasia has been close with her younger brother. She has a deep desire to protect him. Their mom is the coven’s head witch in the small town of Blackstone, Ohio. Their dad is supportive of the family practicing the craft but has no supernatural gifts himself. In the sixth grade, Matt thinks puberty is difficult. Combined with struggling to find his skills as a newbie witch, life is even more challenging. Things get dire when the school bullies play a horrible prank on him, which results in consequences more far-reaching than Matt can ever imagine. When he finds out the haunted house next door has released a demon into the town, he has to fight harder than he ever thought possible to keep his loved ones safe. Tasia is in the eighth grade. She’s a witch who thinks she has plenty of time to hone her craft. But when strange things start happening in Blackstone, she realizes she needs to master her skills now if she wants to defeat the demonic forces that are at work. With the help of her brother and her best friends—Riana, a vampire-witch hybrid, and Courtney, a witch and vampire hunter—Tasia must form a plan to rid the town of the diabolical power that threatens to destroy them all.

Louisville, KY 40299

The Imaginarium Convention made its debut in 2014 and is now heading into its 6th year with a central focus on providing creative writers and other creative talents educational, networking, professional, and mentoring opportunities. In 2019, The Writer Magazine named the Imaginarium Convention the best writing conference in Kentucky and the 2nd best writing conference in the Southeast USA.

The Imaginarium Convention welcomes all genres and levels of experience. Imaginarium maintains an inclusive, welcoming environment that brings together the vibrant atmosphere of a convention with the content-rich nature of a major writers conference. Three days filled with over 130 panels and workshops provide creative individuals of all levels of skill and experience an abundance to choose from to develop skill-sets further on their professional and artistic journeys.

Spotlighting and raising awareness of talented creative individuals is another area of emphasis for the Imaginarium Convention. Our juried Imadjinn Literary Awards given at our annual awards banquet are one way in which we recognize and celebrate top level talent. Another way is through our Imadjinn Book Fair and Expo, which showcases a large number of creative professionals to the public throughout the convention weekend.

In supporting creative writing in all forms, The Imaginarium Convention embraces Game Development and Film/TV production, including programming content in each of these areas, a weekend-long gaming room, and an independent film festival with juried awards.

More recently, The Imaginarium Convention has begun to develop the Imaginarium Initiative, to help facilitate support and educational opportunities for communities in need. Our first target area for this program will be the Eastern Kentucky region.

A positive event that provides a wide range of support and beneficial elements to a diverse array of attendees, Imaginarium is dedicated to continue growing and expanding what we can offer to those pursuing a creative path.

Whispers of Time

In the world of Asaetara, an ancient magic has torn open the paths between worlds. An unknown banner begins to gather the forces of evil together in the shadows. Rin Rilavaenu has struggled her entire life to please her father, the elven king. Much to her dismay, Rin discovers the elf she is so desperate to make proud is not her real father. After this revelation throws Rin’s world into complete turmoil, on the day of her coming of age ceremony, her soul is torn from her body when unknown magic is forced out by her enemies.

After years of searching, Kaedin, Rin’s bonded dragon, finds her when her soul begins to awaken inside of Sara, a nineteen year old human girl from Earth.

How can they close the paths torn open between worlds? Who is behind this and what do they wish to gain? Rin’s friends and family embark on a journey to an unfamiliar world to bring her home, while they struggle to prepare for a war that could destroy everything in not only their world but ours as well.

Word of the Month

desideratum

Did You Know?

We’d like to introduce you to some close cousins of the common word desire. All trace their roots to the Latin sīder-, or sīdus, which has historically been understood to mean “heavenly body,” but which may also have an older, non-celestial meaning of “mark, target, goal.” Whether etymologically starry or grounded, dēsīderāre, meaning “to long for,” was born when Latin de- was prefixed to sīder-. Dēsīderāre begat Anglo-French desirer, which in turn brought forth English desire, desirous, and desirable in the 13th and 14th centuries, with desideration following in the 15th. Then, in the 17th century, English acquired desiderate (“to wish for”) and desideratum (desiderata in the plural), all of which can lay claim to direct ancestry from desiderare.

Examples

“The strength of his class depended to some extent on sound money management—but depended to a much larger extent on marriages based cynically on the sorts of children likely to be produced. Healthy, charming, wise children were the desiderata.” — Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., The Sirens of Titan, 1959
