Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be.
Anyone can play along!
– Grab a book you are reading.
– Open to a random page and pull two sentences.
– Post the book title, author, and page number.
– No spoilers, please.
My quote for this week comes from The First Five Pages by Noah Lukeman, pg 143.
“For instant, instead of “brown” eyes, you might call them “almond”; instead of saying “he was a large, healthy man,” you might call him “ursine.” Use comparion. Instead of saying “his eyes were blue,” you could say “His eyes were the color of the tiles beneath this feet.”“
A great book on perfecting the first fives pages in a manuscript, and really the information can be used for the entire novel.
