First Wednesday of Every Month

I meant to post this on the day I was supposed to, which is the first Wednesday of the month, but that obviously didn't happen, lol. So here I am on Friday night!

This group is the brainchild of Alex J. Cavanaugh. I'm so happy to have been referred to this group by my friend and author, Michael Pierce. Thanks to both of you! I've met and made friends with many cool writers and have been able to share my feelings and worries about the process without fear of judgement.

Lately I've been freaking out over writing reviews, so I'd like to see what you guys have to say about writing them and if you have any advice for me. :)

I guess the more reviews I write, the more I worry that I'm repeating myself, especially with books I love. I don't want to say "this book blew me away" in every review for instance. Do you know what I mean? Then I think about whether I am getting my point across clearly, or am I being confusing? Am I including what "should be" in a review? Should I be formal or should I write as though I'm talking about the book to a friend? As you can tell, I've thought about this a lot! Maybe too much, lol. So, I need to know - what do you think?

  1. Sounds like I need to join that group! LOL. I'm okay about reviews (although I can relate, especially about repetition). It's my novel writing that sometimes causes me concern. On a good day I think it's quite good, on a not so good day I think maybe I should give up and leave it to those who know what they are doing. I can see that I am progressing, which helps. I've had really good feedback, which makes all the difference. I guess we just need to keep at it :) btw, your reviews look good to me.

    1. Just about everyone I know have those up days and down days when they're writing a novel. I began writing a zombie novel for NaNoWriMo. I had days where it seemed like the writing just took off, but then there were days when I thought my story sucked! I can completely relate. :) Keep on keeping on! :D

      Thank you about my reviews. :)
