Some writers have a vivid idea of how their character looks. Some rely on images. Some use both an image for reinforcement and their own mind's eye. Some don't go for much description at all.
If you're writing a romance, it's important to see this lovely girl through the eyes of the hero. A twenty-year old hero would no doubt stop in his tracks. His mind would click away like a camera at every little detail. Of coarse, her hidden smile, cocked head, long hair over her shoulder, the friendly look would make him walk up to her. Okay, maybe I could choose better words for this eighteen-year old. That's where my fellow writers (you) come in. Help. What do you see? I'm a guy so could some one describe the cut of her blouse? Of course, if I get no responses, I'll do my homework and figure it out. Another thing: what's going on with the corners of her lips?
My Novel, Hate or Love? is almost ready for a freelance editor. Here again if you know of anybody...
The story is about what happens to the hero and heroine when he, a white separatist saves her from drowning. I rarely ask for help, but fellow romance writers, if you think your agent or publisher might be interested please correspond.
