"And you call yourself a book blog".
This was an email statement I received from a fellow "book blogger". Apparently I am not talking about books enough to be called a book blog and so I should stop misrepresenting myself.
Can I just say WOW. Seriously? Misrepresenting myself? Really?
And that is all I am going to say about that.
Anyway ........... I have been focusing a lot on my writing. I have set a goal to finish the YA Book I started last year. As I have no formal training I am flopping around in this process and its kind of getting on my nerves.
My darling daughter gave me a book called
Writing Down The Bones by Natalie Goldberg
It is filled with amazing nuggets of information on writing. It touches on everything from the kind of pen you should use to how to hold onto an idea. I am loving this book right now because it is easy to refer to when I get lost in my own process.
The writer talks about writing as a spiritual practice and something that should feel freeing. Her zen and enthusiastic approach aids in motivating the reader to do what they love. I have not finished reading this book yet but I can tell you it will become a staple in my pursuit of better writing.
