IWSG #7 ~ March 2013
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?
If I'm not reading, then I'm writing about books. If I'm not reading or writing, then I'm thinking about books. You get the idea. In addition to books, I love dyeing my hair various colors, getting tattoos, and listening to music mostly from the 60s/90s.
