Today I found an old site, Dragon Writing Prompts. It hasn’t been updated in about a year or so, but there are some really good things on that site to jar the muse. It made me have an idea for a new blog series for you. One of those muse-tweakers (my term for them) was “What do you do when your writer won’t write?” This set me off on a great idea for a blog series for you, dear readers. How about we cover those items that readers ask of writers. Like, WHY haven’t you come out with BOOK X?
I love reading book series. Mystery, romance, thriller, sci-fi, or fantasy. doesn’t matter to me. I am avid about them. But I’m beginning to feel like after the third book, the writer is trying too hard to keep things rolling. Some writers are good about making each book in their series as close to a standalone as you can get without being one. But recently, some writers I read have fallen short. And it’s sad because reading about familiar characters and their escapades always gives me a sense of enjoyment. But sometimes now, the series is SOOOOO long and overgrown
It’s the first day of summer and you know what that means. DISCLAIMER: READING! It’s the summer reading season. So wanna know my opinion on some things? Well, you are about to get it, so if you don’t want to hear my tirade about books and reading, then please be forewarned. I get emails from Amazon pretty regularly, and oftentimes they tout a book I have recently browsed for or read. They target market me that way. You too? What? You didn’t know you were being marketed to? Well, think about it. How did they know what books to suggest?
