Special Guest Chris Redding


 Everyone welcome my special guest today, Chris Redding! She's here to talk about people watching and how to use your experience to make you a better writer!

Take it away, Chris!

I’m not a great traveler. I like to sleep in my own bed. But I do get out sometimes. Hence our trip to Europe. It really is good to broaden your horizons. You gain perspective. I’ve lived in Europe so this isn’t a new experience. This time we brought the kids to broaden them.
          Besides, what better place to people watch, than an airport. I saw a woman in Frankfurt Airport whose picture I wanted to take. I didn’t and it was tough not to stare because she was so interesting looking ‘I’d guess she was Turkish. Darker skinned. She wore no make up with a scarf on her head. Her hair was brown with no gray in it, but she looked old to me. I bet  every wrinkle on that face had a story behind it. As a mental exercise, which I do often when I people watch, I thought about how I would describe her. My description above didn’t do her justice.
          Nonetheless, it is a good exercise for a writer.
          So is getting out of our comfort zone. We sit alone (maybe) day after day hunched over a keyboard. We have the illusion of friends. We fees as if we are tuned in, but are we really?
          Get out. Go someplace new eve if it is only to a new Dunkin Donuts. See something new. Maybe you’ll find someone that you went to use in a book.

Chris Redding lives in New Jersey with her husband, two kids, one dog and three rabbits. She graduated from Penn State with a degree in journalism. When she isn’t writing or giving workshops, she works part time for her local hospital.


You just can't hide from the past...

Mallory Sage lives in a small, idyllic town where nothing ever happens. Just the kind of life she has always wanted. No one, not even her fellow volunteer firefighters, knows about her past life as an agent for Homeland Security.

Former partner and lover, Trey McCrane, comes back into Mallory's life. He believes they made a great team once, and that they can do so again. Besides, they don't have much choice. Paul Stanley, a twisted killer and their old nemesis, is back.

Framed for a bombing and drawn together by necessity, Mallory and Trey go on the run and must learn to trust each other again―if they hope to survive. But Mallory has been hiding another secret, one that could destroy their relationship. And time is running out.

I really like the point about going someplace, any place, new to spark new ideas. You never know when inspiration is going to strike!

Chris Redding said...

It is so easy to get into a rut and I think that's why we sometimes have trouble writing.
I have renewed energy for writing since I've been back.

Shelley Sly said...

I love people watching and have gotten several great ideas by observing others.

Chris, your book sounds awesome! I'll have to check it out. :)

Carole Anne Carr said...

Good idea going somewhere new, will check out the book, Chris.

Veronica Singleton said...

I have always said, people watching has to be a #1 pass time for writers. I always have to bring up the guy with his family at the Seville Diner in East Brunswick, NJ with 3 tea bags in his cup of tea. You know I had to use that characteristic in my writing. Great piece, Chris.
