The Prettiest Thing - Chapter Two

I just updated chapter two of The Prettiest Thing over on I hope everyone enjoys it. I must warn everyone in advance. This story is going to be very descriptive. Paragraphs will be devoted to describing a room or house. I especially paid great detail to Ella's bedroom since it is going to be a main setting for this story. If you have ever read John Steinbeck before, you know that the man is the king of descriptions. He will write paragraph upon paragraph describing just the nature scenery to the reader. I am no where near John Steinbeck obviously but I wanted to try writing more descriptively in his type of style.

Chapter two shows the Scott and Dawson families and you get to meet the parents. I wanted to give Trevor and Ella Scott and Brett Dawson decent families with decent upbringings. I wanted to give them normal lives and normal relationships with their parents. I hope I am able to show that realistically throughout the story. I'm glad everyone is excited about the return of this story. You all know what to do for me. Read it and review it.

The actress you used for Connie is exactly how I pictured her when you were writing about her! It's incredible how well Lauren Graham can portray a funny, beautiful mother.

I'm so happy you are going to continue with this story, and you don't know how excited I am to see how Brett and Ella's relationship will progress.

You're amazing!

Hey Kate,

I adore you! Seriously your passion for writing just leaves me speechless. I've only read two books by John Steinbeck which are "Of Mice and Men" and "The Grapes of Wrath". I'm glad that you're challenging yourself and exploring different writing techniques. What I mainly remember Steinbeck for is his realistic portrayal of every day ordinary people and conditions which I think makes the descriptions work. I have faith in your writing Kate therefore I have a feeling you'll be crown queen of descriptions once this story is over. No pressure or anything. Thank you.
