I love my UPS guy! He has brought me joy….I received my books today!
I can’t stop smiling I’m so excited.
What books? Oh.
On Monday, I read a few of Kristen Lamb’s blog posts which lead me on a book ordering frenzy.
Not really. I only bought three: Story Engineering by Larry Brooks, Plot & Structure by James Scott Bell, and Bullies, Bastards, & Bitches by Jessica Page Morrell. I started reading Story Engineering already! LOL!
I’ve been on this research/learning kick and I have not written a word this week.
And I’m okay with that.
Oooooh! Here’s something- I did let my husband read a few pages of a rough, ROUGH draft of my work today and by doing so I got exactly what I asked for. If you know anything about men born under the sign of Sagittarius then you KNOW I got it straight, no chaser! Anyway, it was not as bad as I thought it would be. I was not as sensitive as I thought I would be. He was not as harsh as I know he could be. He gave me honesty. And very constructive criticism. He gave me some things to think about as I continue writing and for when I begin to edit.
