As usual, I’m sharing a fabulous blog post I found quite helpful this week about building up a good reference library for yourself as an author. This week I’ve chosen a great article by Kristin Lamb.
“If we don’t understand the rules, we don’t know how to intelligently and artfully break them. Maybe we will write something unique and successful without ever understanding POV. But then how do we duplicate that success if we don’t know how we created it in the first place? This is akin to going in the kitchen and tossing ingredients in a bowl without knowing what they are, how they taste or how they work together (or don’t). Maybe we’ll make something yummy…or maybe we’ll make a chemical bomb.” –Kristin Lamb
