I visited the library yesterday, which is one of my favorite things to do! So many books just waiting to be read, I feel like a kid in a candy store! This time I went for something more specific than my usual general fiction, I went to find books about writing. Now for a little background on me, I haven't gone to school for writing, I do want to take some creative writing courses, english and such, I just haven't had the time to fit it in, but my goal this year is to start getting serious, researching through books and classes to find where I need to be.
So I borrowed several books from the library and the one I've started on is A Natural History of the Romance Novel by Pamela Regis, now I don't know if reading this book is a good idea or a bad idea, but I have always been told to go with your gut. So I've chosen to read this book, broaden my horizon, learn something I might not learn on my own. At this point I am like a sponge, just waiting to soak up as much information as I can get my hands on!
All of my fellow bloggers have been amazing in sharing their knowledge of writing, tips on spelling and several other errors or worries that writers come across, it has been amazing and I feel like I have a whole new family to lean on for support.
Through this process I am finding that I am not only learning about myself as an author/writer, but also has a person. I am learning that challenges are something that I look forward to when writing, editing a piece or completely starting over doesn't defeat me, but only makes me that much more intrigued on the ending. So for now I am going to continue reading the informational books, and if I learn one thing then it was worth it!
