Adventures in Writing, Reading & Book Culture

Meatball Sandwich … to share

Jack came through the door in a hurry, whipped around and slammed it closed.
“The red, or the white?”
Jill looked at the pots on the stove. Silver pots. Boiling water. Simmering sauce.
“The red. No, wait … bring ’em both.”
“Where’s the screw?”
“Check the drawer.”
“Not here. Where did we leave it last?”
“Anywhere. The food’s done. What’ll we do?”

Writing for context gives you a lot of wiggle room when using dialogue. The characters shall give away their presence of mind with just the right words, and delivered the pace with established context. Let your audience figure some things out to share their presence with the story. Give them a place, and that one extra image to establish connection.


What Beauty is my newest novel, a story of art, obsession and ego. Read an excerpt here. It’s available as an ebook, too.

The Village Wit (2010) is a humorous and sometimes dark odyssey through village life, love’s fall, sexual politics, and that place where memory and modern love intersect. Read an excerpt here. This book is also available as an ebook.
