How To Kill Your Reader

Danger is a crucial element in a mystery novel. A killer is on the loose and no one is safe. But sometimes the killer can be the writer, and the victim, the reader.I'm talking about when the author turns into a preacher and the story becomes a sermon. Now I am not against using a mystery novel for social commentary. Writing doesn't happen in a moral vacuum, and, after all, isn't a mystery a morality play? As fellow North Carolina author Margaret Maron said there is no topic that can't be dealt…See More

I've heard rimption before-way back sometime-and now its like a feather tickling my brain for me to remember who I used to be around that said it. For some reason I don't think it was a family member. I hope my brain retrieves the information-because I'm interested in the word now! I like your suspection about filling to the "rim" and bet you are totally right on it too.

Thank you for taking the time to comment!

Hey Betty! So glad you liked the picture I used! It's my grandmothers family. Her name was Gazzie Truett. She was the first born of her family. She is the 3rd one from the left on the first row. I've never heard about the traveling photographers-but I bet that's how the picture was taken. Thank you for the comment-and for letting me feature your great essay!

Thank you for the insightful comment on the Vocabulary Test. Especially interesting was your explanation about budget and blue john-since I've never heard those before. Your comment reminded me-I used to call my girls fussy-budgets when they were babies and crying alot. I have no clue where I picked it up from though. Our language and the way we use it from place to place is very interesting!
