Conventional, mainstream, old-fashioned, what?
In my Facebook post, I called myself and my books conventional, but it took only seconds for a fellow author to pipe and say that I was mainstream. Mainstream sounds much less boring, doesn’t it? It also sounds risk averse, and believe it or not, I do take risks in my books, at least compared to my own real life of wife, mother, hearth tender, and librarian. But my characters don’t do crazy things. Well, sometimes they are impulsive, and say things that they regret later. Lucy is like that, and Eva as well. They don’t have strong filters. After I finish posting, I’m going back to Lucy’s world, adding the final touches to a story that has come to an end. But before I sign off, here’s a link to the story about knitting socks. I got permission to share it, and I’m so glad that I can.
Enjoy the week,
