In keeping with my current dog theme (we pick her up TODAY!), I thought I'd share this interesting article by Rosecrans Baldwin at Slate.com. Baldwin examines novelists' use of unseen dogs barking, particularly during moments when the author wants a little break for emotional resonance.
Curious, I checked my completed novel THE CHARMED BRACELET. No dogs--not the anonymous, invisible barking kind anyway.
Do you have a dog barking in your novel?
