I feel that a new blog deserves some new words to announce its arrival. Over here at Stormy Night Publishing we’re going to be looking at what makes a “good” book and ways we can hold ourselves to those standards. As I’ve been reading Stein on Writing, I realize that I know a lot of the rules and ideas he has there for how to make a successful story, but I have forgotten to use them in my own writing. We all need reminding from time to time.
Since my goal is to read fifty-five books this year, theoretically I should be posting a book review at least once a week. Throughout the week I’ll also share other words of wisdom that may come to me, or perhaps something I’ve written that I’m especially proud of (and then take it right back off here after I realize how atrocious it is).
That’s about all I have to say for now. I suggest you check out my about pages. They go a little more in depth about what what’s gong on here. Also, while you’re on the left-hand navigation pane (edit: right-hand, sorry!), go ahead and check out my friends. They’re all really awesome artists that I am so glad to have in my life to inspire and encourage me, and many times they just give me some great constructive criticism.
