Now available is K.M. Weiland’s new book of writing advice “Structuring Your Novel: Essential Keys for Writing an Outstanding Story.”. I was lucky enough to be provided an Advanced Reader E-Copy to review.
I’ve been listening to Weiland’s Wordplay podcast for a long time now (I’ve gone back and listened from the beginning) and her book “Outlining Your Novel: Map Your Way To Success” is a large reason I’m an outliner today. I’ve also very much enjoyed “Dreamlander” from the fiction side of her oeuvre.
Read on for a review!
You may have noted that I have not been updating as often and that my posts have been mostly about word count. I do apologize and I promise that once Labour Day is past, I will be contributing better to this blog.
I’m on track to break 20K for the month tonight, or at the latest, tomorrow. I’m still behind but not disasterously so.
How’s my August?
I just finished Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn trilogy on Sunday and I wanted to write a short impression of it. I’m new and not very good at book reviews, but I’m working to improve that.
As always, I welcome comments and suggestions.
Read on for my thoughts on The Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson.
I blame myself for procrastinating but that’s life. Mere hours after this post, I fell ill for several days.
I spent the last few days in the basement in the hope of not infecting my daughter and wife with the plague. I’m better now, but I feel like I’ve been run over by a large ugly truck.
On the other hand, writing while feverish is interesting to say the least, if not very productive. I still have to work on my short story, but I’ve got a treasure trove of new ideas when I’m done my current list of projects.
The upside is that I had a lot of time to read and I have to say that Patrick Rothfuss’ The Name of the Wind did not disappoint.
Which leads me to my very first book review!
