With Love, From Ms. Blush

Hello to you all wonderful, beautiful people!

April... The month of the April's Fool. Ah, the pranks one can play, the silliness, the laughter, the utter nonsense of it all. Yet, some can argue there is sense in this madness. Can you prove this right? All I know is that when I was at school, teachers would end up with a very silly paper fish stuck to their backs, or they would have very white butts because they sat down on the chair where we had smeared all the chalk from the blackboard (I know, the good ol' days... sigh).

So, back to the topic at hand: What do we have in store for you this month?

Well, we are trying to make sense.

That doesn't make sense to you? Fear not, it will shortly! For, you see, this month, our topic at the Royal Blush Authors' blog is - drum roll and djembe beats -


Yes, we will bring the topic of sense to the whole business of writing a novel and in the same go appeal to your sensibility as writer.

Many fail to realise how logic is at the very base of writing. If the story doesn't make sense, well, you don't have much of a story, do you?

Logic in the setting, in the characterisation, in the plot arc, in the narrative progression; even logic in naming your characters.

All of these are the very foundation of your story and of the craft of writing.

Catch us this month as we bring you more about how to place logic in your work. Every week, T.J. and Aasiyah/Nolwynn will cover an aspect of logic - the first with a technical and theoretical basis for the topic, the second with practical application and explanations of the concept.

Our regular RBA contributors - Sandra Marshall, Angela Guillaume, and Diana Castilleja - will also be piping their input in, and this will surely be funny and worth checking out. Unfortunately, Chiron O'Keefe won't be able to add her quip this month.

This week, Sandra will tell us what she has grasped about logic in the action-reaction realm.

Anyone familar with Pinkie and The Brain? *wink* We'll strive for such a tone throughout the month, so buckle up for a wild ride!

This April, we at RBA are interconnecting all the synapses of our cerebral cortex, hypothalamus and right and left brain hemispheres.

This April, we're on the quest:

Searching for the logic that actually makes sense...

The best of us for the best of you, that's our promise as we deliver the full flush of romance.

From now till later, enjoy!

With love, from Ms. Blush

Logic? I'm not sure I have that in any aspect of my life :(

Lol. At least if not in your life, we can try to bring some into the writing!

Rest assured we too don't have very logical lives (despite being writing cyborgs, we've been told!)

Stay tuned this month and I'm sure you'll pick up a tip or two. That's what we're here for - to help.
