Struggled with what to do with Book 1. I felt frustrated, what do I do with this? How can I make this work? Where can I place them to where they are not in the middle of wars, and politics, etc. etc. OHHh it was awful.
I do what I normally do when the words are in a mess, I go to the bookstore. I do a lot of research at the library, but the bookstore is a reminder this is why I write. I walked up and down each aisle. I looked at the titles, read a few back covers and flaps. Then I wandered over to the Westerns section. I remembered my friend Dave mentioning he loved Louis L’Amour’s books. I looked around the shelves found a couple books, then I looked down and there was another shelf with nothing but his books on them! Wow this guy is a writing god, I want to meet him.I knew of his work, I was not aware of how much there was.
Well, his dedication to writing the westerns inspired me. Don’t give up, get my butt back to work!
