Overall Goal: Figure out my writing process
1. Read more books in my genre.
2. Read more books on craft and apply the lessons to my writing.
Didn’t do so well with my goals this week because I was at the New York Comic Con. My ticket’s still good for today, but I’m way too tired to go. I met many of my favorite writers and artists, took some cool pictures of the costumes people wore and attended some panels that got me thinking about where I could take my writing career. I’d write about it in more detail, but, you know, exhausted. Maybe for another post.
The goal I did accomplish was to read more of my genre novel, Skinwalker, by Faith Hunter. I love stories about shapeshifters and this one stood out because the main character, Jane Yellowbrook, can shift into any animal. The author even explains how Jane can shift into animals larger or smaller than her own size.
So far it’s pretty good. She’s hunting a rogue vampire and her love interest seems like the usual mysterious bad boy. I’m still in act one of the book, so I expect there to be more twists coming to liven up this otherwise ordinary plot.
