I started a 100 day challenge where I am studying 100 author's voices, of whom's books I really loved. So after choosing who I'd study, I chose a snippet from the book of the author who I was studying and then took what I learned from that snippet and applied it to my own writing.
Today, I studied Robert Dugoni's book (which I loved so much) The 13th Tribe. It's soooo good!
Some things I really love about his writing style are:
How descriptive he is. You feel like you're there.
His characters and their history is amazing.
So I attempted to add more of that to what I've written below.
Johnny didn’t believe there were bad people who kidnapped women until he came home from college to work in the Bakken Oil Boom to find his ex-girlfriend from high school had completely vanished. She had disappeared and no one knew where she went. It was even more shocking to see her picture and description on a missing poster tacked to the cork board in what used to be their small-town grocery store.
I can't wait to share more of this story with you all.
