Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life by Anna Lamott
It was funny and full of useful tips. My only thing is that sometimes she went on tangents reiterating the same point over and over again when it was very clear the first time. Maybe it’s just me, but those moments made her seem like she was trying too hard to squeeze in a few more jokes or to show off her impressive writing.
What I Found Most Helpful: She emphasized how important simply writing was. Among everything else that comes with the publishing industry, writing is the most important thing to do. Not only that, but she told how a lot of her stories took a while to flesh out. She taught me not to be afraid to spend more time on a story if it requires it.
The Full Moon is available for preorder and will be released February 6, 2016.
Kathy and her sister, Samantha, have always been a team. Throughout their time as witches, they’ve taken out more than their share of bad guys. But after Kathy meets Will, who she learns is a demonic Dark Knight, her loyalties begin to change.
Meanwhile, Samantha doesn’t trust Will or his intentions. Still, Kathy can’t help but feel tempted by the dark side as she falls deeper in love with Will. Crossing over would give Kathy the freedom to do whatever she wanted with her magic. No rules. No limitations. It would also mean breaking the bond she has always shared with her sister, who has made it clear that she wants nothing to do with the dark side.
When Will proposes they take over the underworld, Kathy loves the idea of having power. But it also leaves her with a choice that will change her life: abandon her family and the life she has always known, or give up the love of her life forever.
