Did I put the title of this post in caps? That must mean I’m shouting. And an exclamation mark, too, Yup, definitely shouting.
As a writer, the way we write things have meanings behind the meanings, and we can never forget that. Sometimes it’s obvious, sometimes it’s subtle, but it’s there.
As a reader, often we say a book is good, or bad, or… (gulp) really bad. Most readers can’t say why it was bad, only that it was. As a writer, when I read a bad book, I can say why, at least most of the time, and I’ve taken a lot of classes and done a lot of reading to find out why. Mostly, I take those classes so not only do I hope to recognize those things, my goal is to not do them.
I haven’t been writing a lot in the last few months, but this seems like my New Year’s resolution should be to get rolling again. I have a 5 book series I need to get working on, and this seems like a good time.
Happy New Year!
