Teaser Tuesday: From Where You Dream

3 Comments

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

My teaser for today is From Where You Dream: The Process of Writing Fiction by Pulitzer Prize-Winning author Robert Olen Butler.



“But eventually a thing kicked in that psychologists used to call functional fixedness. That is, if you have a certain place and certain objects that you associate only with a certain task, eventually the associational values build up in such a way that when you go to that place and engage those objects, you are instantly completely focused on that task.”

by Robert Olen Butler.


Anyone can play along with Teaser Tuesdays! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

  3. Sounds interesting — like when you lace up your walking shoes and go to the park, you’re energized and eager to go for a walk? This sounds like an inspiring book.
    My teaser is from HOLLYWOOD BEGINNINGS.
