What is it with today?
First off, I feel really tired and run down, so much so that I just sit in front of my computer this morning and write nothing, not even a blog for all of my loyal reader out there. Oh Hell, I get a lot of hits lately, I’m sure that number must be more than one by now. (Hi, Mom!)
At my day job, several people called in sick, and one just got back from vacation with massive jet lag. Then I check a blog or two by some authors I like and one of them is on the subject of writing when you feel unmotivated and the other discusses Writer’s Block!
“Looks like someone’s got a case of the Mondays!”
So in honor of Monday, I’m going to ask my reader(s) a question, which hopefully someone can answer. Yesterday I read a blog on the subject of the Hook, in terms of writing. Most of her examples were first lines. I was not under the impression that Hooks were as concrete as that in a story. I always thought that a hook was related to the theme of the story, or even the plot, rather than a specific sentence in a particular place.
Can anyone explain this to me?
