I love books. You can find me curled up with one most hours of the day. However, it is hard to carry heavy books with you in your bag and running around trying to manage life. When life was on-the-go (pre-COVID), I would use one app to bring my bookshelf with me no matter where I go. It made a bunch of novels the weight of a cell phone.
Being a writer can be intimidating especially if you are trying to figure it out. Even as a blogger, I have to studied the art of writing. An art I thought I would never have to study. I have read several guides to writing and each write about the do’s and don’ts. They offer harrowing tails of rejection letters and finding agents. Which is good information but not what I am looking for in encouragement. However, my most recent read has become the guide I never knew I needed.
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon is about a woman named Claire who gets transported to Scotland during 1743 after walking through one of the ancient circles around the British Isles. I deal enough with the real world in my every day that I enjoy the escape of a good fiction book but Outlander has me questioning is it worth the space on my shelf after curling up with the third book in the series, Voyager, and having mixed feelings about the storyline into this instillation.
