I Can't Choose.. Don't Make Me #MFRWauthor


Welcome to week 1 of the 2018 challenge. The official topic is the favorite thing I've written. To an author that is like asking them to choose between their children.

It could be the first feature I wrote on Amercan art tiles. It was special to me because it was not just my first feature story (and got me started on a writing path that has lasted more than three decades,) but also because I became a tile historian.

Or, it could be one of the three local history books I authored. Two still hold a special place in my heart. The third, not so much. However I refuse to visit the troll that ruined that book's release.

But the group is marketing for romance authors so the book showcased should be my fiction. Windmaster was my first book so it will always be special.

Then there is Dragon Destiny. It was used as encouragement during a relative's rehab after surgery. And the main character was based on a family member who has since grown up into a beautiful young woman.



Both those books were followed by others including Hatchling's Vengeance and Imprisoned in Stone. Each presented a challenge to write and the resultant increase in skills makes them a favorite.

But to answer the question?


~till next time, be sure to visit the other authors in the challenge. You might find a new favorite book and author.




Gremlins danced in the links. Here's a couple of correct steps.

  1. LOL....a LOT of us are having that reaction! Sometimes the 'favorite child' is the current one.

  2. What you said... "It Depends on the Moment." That makes so much sense. Cheers to your first feature story.

    1. I think our current is often our favorite because we're entuned to the story. When we finish writing it, we say good-bye and move on. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. You're so right, Helen. It depends on the moment, though they're all special in one way or another!

  4. While I know what you mean, I knew instantly which of my books I would choose. Second place would be really hard, though.

    1. I envy those who know their own minds. My characters smack me around if I chose one over the other so I have to tell them they all had their time as favorite. Now be nice and let someone else get a little loving. thanks for stopping by.

  6. After all these years I've decided that each story is special. If it's not special to me, then it won't be to my readers. Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Each story is special in its own way. Sorry you had to deal with a troll. But hopefully that sad person didn't hurt you too much.

    1. Thanks for the kind words. Cancelling events had a professional cost and will take years to recoup the losses, but the personal toll on families after four generations and hundreds of years of service to the organization will take longer.
