“When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amore . . .”
Written by Jac Brooks and Harry Warren in the early 50s, Dean Martin sang that catchy upbeat song like no one else.
amore = l’amour = love
As bloggers and writers, we have amore for our crafts. It’s a drive, a passion, something we can’t imagine not doing. As such, we should endeavor to make it the best we can.
And to make it the best we can, we need to constantly be editing, so that our:
♥ words are fresh
♥ writing is readable (attention-grabbing)
♥ posts and books have readers wanting to come back for more!
Writing is like building a pizza pie. You have your basic layer with tomato sauce and cheese: the plot/storyline. Then you build.
Add characters and complications (tension, conflict, quests). Throw in complexity (twists and turns, enemies and frenemies). Boost the “flavor” with logic and resolution(s).
If the ingredients don’t quite come together, that’s okay. We build another one—the right one, the perfect one.
Rejoice in the final product, the appealing bouquet. That’s amore.
