Good morning, Flamefolk!
Our topic this week is nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat, suspenseful thrill writing in the form of “The Devil I Have Not Met”. (I probably blew up the comma rules on that sentence. Forgive?)
I absolutely love a good thriller. Though I prefer psychological thrillers to the gore and mayhem kind – Elizabeth George is a good writer for that. One of my favorite books of hers is in the Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley series and is called “In Pursuit of the Proper Sinner”.
I enjoy that moment when you get to the last line of a chapter and you slowly turn the page wondering through all of the possible outcomes – those Sherlock brain cells firing off theories mere nanoseconds before you find out What Happened. It’s almost as much fun as the ratcheting haul up the roller coaster just before gravity swoops you down the other side.
Have you read any good thrillers lately? Share please?
Be sure to join in the writing fun for this week’s topic.
Congrats to cedar and bluegerl on making it to week four. Don’t forget that JFF entries are still welcome – if the devil gives you a reason to write.
