Okay, now for today's posting.
There are many things we see that are so stunningly beautiful that they take our breath away.
But what about breath-taking writing?
I remember reading a book by a famous author. I had followed her characters through falling in love and then parting because of a misunderstanding. When the heroine finally came to the conclusion that she loved her man, she tracked him down at his family's farm. She went out to the barn to talk with him and found that he'd hanged himself. Not only did that scene take my breath away it made me darn mad, so much so that I actually threw the book down.
You don't want that kind of breath-taking scene. Better it be a heart-pounding love scene or a white-knuckled suspense scene, but please don't kill off the hero.
I'm just saying . . .
What's a breath-taking scene you remember?
