writing tip: description…

Description begins in the writer’s imagination, but should finish in the reader’s.

Great tip: Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Doing?  It’s almost 10 pm here,  I can hear crickets outside, feel a warm breeze across my shoulders, and hear the clacking of the blind string against the window sill.  I can see the distant flash of light, but hear no thunder. The ceiling fan is going, and my pillow is awfully inviting.   But, I’m a little uneasy.

A little known Inky fact – when it’s warm like this, I usually have nightmares.

So the questions this evening are:  Will it rain, or no?  Should I go to sleep, or no? And finally, should I pull the wine out of the fridge, and have a go at it before bed?
