This has been one of the most difficult parts of my journey into writing. I have taken a few wrong turns and gotten way off track. Part of what I have written makes no sense in my book and I am seeing that now.
When I get off track, I read a book by an author who I know is good. Right now I am reading Anathema by Colleen Coble. I am learning from her how to write mysteries. Don't know if I ever want to write a mystery, but I may sometime. I like the way she sticks with the character and you feel you know Hannah. You also feel her fears and guilt. So far, I am enjoying this style of writing.
We all have our own style or voice. I think I am coming into mine, but I do know it will take several books before it gets there. I can wait and learn more.
I will agree that the craft books are great, but I learn more from others when I read what they are writing. I hope this book does not get too scary for me, but I have mastered Steven James' books, so I can get through this one.
Lots to do today, now that I am feeling better. Today is a pretty good day compared to the last three.
