Blessed Friday from Gail Gaymer Martin at www.gailgaymermartin.com Another month has passed with life whizzing past for most of us. Autumn is here, and we know that winter hovers on the edges of our weather, but I'm still enjoying a few sturdy flowers in my garden. . .even some beautiful roses.
But today my tasks is to share some writing tips with you, and this one has to theme and the question: What Is Theme?
One of the most difficult terms to define is theme. While sometimes called, the lesson, moral or main idea behind the story, theme is really more than that. A parable has a lesson and a fable has a moral which is obvious to the listener or reader, but theme serves more as a profound portrayal of the human condition.
