Intrepid Souls

Brenda and Snowdon,

Thank you so much for sharing your queries! Critiquing your letters provided a nice break from revising my own writing. As a reward for putting yourselves out there, I'm offering both of you the same level of brutal critique on your first ten pages. Just email them (pasted in the body of an email or attached as DOC files, but NOT DOCX files) to me at : kate *at* katekaynak *dot* com in the next week or so.

I really enjoyed seeing what other people are writing these days. I'm still doing revisions on MINDER and plotting the two books I plan to write this summer. The first is the next installment of the GANZFIELD (a.k.a., MINDER) books. The other is set at Yale, with a MC who can see ghosts.

And someone needs to talk me out of writing the screenplay about the vampire and the middle-aged woman, because it's disturbingly compelling to me.
Logline: How Stella got her grave back.

The pain-filled groans at the pun only make me want to write it MORE.

lol!! I LOVE it. Good grief. Vampire Cougartown.

Brenda said...

I agree! The possibilities for humor are endless. Not sure if you intend that, but it could be really funny.

Disgruntled Bear said...

Actually, the working title is HOME OF THE COUGARS.


Sample dialogue:

JENNY
We can't go anywhere. Everyone will think I'm a cradle robber.

DAVE
When you're really a grave robber.

JENNY
Exactly!


And neither of you is talking me away from this cliff, I notice.

Kate, it's hard to imagine this working as a serious work. But I can imagine it seriously rocking as a parody/humor book. I think you should go for it. Maybe it'll peter out after a chapter. Maybe it'll be your big break.

Disgruntled Bear said...

No, it definitely wouldn't work as a serious work. I think it's more like I'm imagining Buffy the Vampire Slayer having a mid-life crisis.

When it comes to writing I've learned to follow my instincts. IMHO, I think you should go for it and see where the book takes you. Good luck.
