Every Novel is a Puzzle


Welcome to Open Book Blog Hop. You can find us every Monday talking about the writing life. I hope you'll check out all the posts: you'll find the links at the bottom of this post.

Now this was fun! Are you a puzzle fan? Well, here's the first of the novels in the Menopausal Superhero series made into a jigsaw puzzle! (If you need some hints, the title is Going Through the Change, and my name is Samantha Bryant--those bits will get you a goodly portion of the puzzle). And like any jigsaw puzzle aficionado will tell you--establish the edges first. It helps. 

I enjoyed this quite a bit, and it's a nice analogy for writing as well. Writing a new book does feel like solving a puzzle. I get it in pieces and as I work the overall vision becomes clearer and hangs together better until: voil√°! 

Hope you enjoy it! And be sure to check out the other puzzles in this week's blog hop at the link below.

  1. Great, I managed to lose it all before commenting but I did finish. Took me just on ten minutes.

    1. Thanks for playing. After seeing some of the others, I thought I should have set it to fewer pieces.

  2. That was fast, Moontide! I'm impressed! Nice puzzle, Samantha.
