Welcome all! Cynthia, you’re doing something I think is very helpful for creating emotion– imbuing an object (the jewelry) with emotional significance. We’ll talk about that!
Nickie, your ghost story sounds very poignant, which is a lovely emotion for a reader. I like that theme of taking a risk, because loving always involves risk of loss.
Rhoda, that’s a good conflict, especially in a novel about a young college woman. The conflict between ‘intimacy and identity’ is really central for so many women!
I hope I didn’t miss anyone– speak up if I did.
We’ll have fun!
