These themes are very defined in my case, but subtle, so that if I were to ask someone to point one out they may pause and frown at me (Okay, like my husband did when I had him reread all of my stuff/WIPs to see if he could find them.) and shrug. Well, hopefully they are subtle enough to be either of two things...memorable and/or definable. As in definable as a work of Cheryl. Memorable, too so that I really don't feel like a dumbass for including them when and where they just won't be...memorable. Am I making sense at all?
So I won't give away many of my characteristic themes, just one, and see if you can find it in the various writing samples on this website.
What is/are your trademarks in your stories? What do you find yourself writing in as a hidden gem? Please, don't let me think I'm the only one xD
