Where Is She Going?
Where Is She Going?
This is a great picture for scene setting and character development. It opens the imagination to so many possibilities. The pretty platinum blonde, a chiffon scarf wrapped artfully around her head, cruising in her turquoise car through the sun-drenched country side. What secrets linger behind her serene expression? What does she see through the passenger side window?
Not only can a writer speculate where she's going, but the vintage car and the clothes give fodder for other possibilities. Since they both represent a distinct time period, it's important that writers stay true to the norms of that era: the music, the current events, the technology, the societal roles of men and women.
For accuracy and authenticity, it may require research. Even a fiction piece, demands that historical details be carefully presented. Executing this task well yields an author credibility and readers.
So, where is this woman going? Here's my list:
1. Drive-In Movie (Later that night.)
2. Elvis Concert
3. The Beach
4. Cocktail Party
5. Sister's House To Play Cards
6. Bowling League Game
7. To Meet Her Secret Lover
8. To Hear John F. Kennedy Give A Speech

Ellwyn discovered her passion for writing in second grade when she had to write a book report for school. She was so excited to write the report, until her mother told her that she had to write about someone else’s book and not her own story. Ellwyn became indignant and decided that once she finished the book report she would most certainly write her own original story. She has been writing ever since!
Ellwyn lives with her family in Pennsylvania. She loves all things magical, curling up with a good book, writing stories, and almost anything with chocolate in it.
