I have to make this short as I am working on a quick turnaround of revisions for my agent. One of the more fun parts of writing is having a story done and brainstorming the addition of sparkle. You know-this is great, let's make it better with these small touches. Sparkle. Sparkle is hard to define but you know it when you feel it. It's an adrenalin rush in your veins. An, oh, cool, yes! Add that kind of thing to the story to bring out this point or that point.
This morning the radio was on and the singer asked if you had ever thrown a handful of glitter in the air. That is sparkle.
