Thank you for reading, and thank you for your generous assessment! The novel unfolds using the structure of a traditional pas de deux with an entrée, adagio, male variation, female variation, coda, and curtain call, which was a lot of fun to write.
Thank you for reading, and thank you for your kind words!
Thank you for reading, and thank you for your feedback. I appreciate it!
Thank you for reading, and thank you for your feedback. I changed it to maple syrup-colored hair, which feels easier to visualize.
Thank you so much to everyone who took time to read and/or comment on my flogging. I appreciate the feedback. Also, many, many thanks to Ray for this invaluable tool to help us writers improve our craft. After finishing my rough draft, I tried assiduously to follow Ray's checklist. Even with all the effort, I wasn't able to get my first story question in the excerpt (it appears two lines below), which attests to exactly how difficult this task is. I set myself another goal: Give the reader enough information to decide if The Pas de Deux is a good fit for his or her taste. Ballet in '80s Los Angeles is pretty specific (and if you finished the chapter, then you know I'm gunning for an inverse May/December relationship). Obviously, this combination isn't going to appeal to everyone. I'd rather set expectations early, so readers can opt in or out, depending on their interests. Thank you again! I remain deeply grateful to anyone who reads my words. Happy Writing, Erin Bomboy
