Bits to Read

Robin Lee Hatcher has a great post on creativity at her blog. I especially enjoyed this:

Just as a reader reads a book in order to learn what happens to the characters, I write my books to see what happens to the characters.

That's exactly what I do! I have a glimpse of the climax and happily-ever-after as I write, but don't most readers? And the surprises along the way can be the best part.

The Cubicle Next Door by Siri Mitchell arrived at my house yesterday. I finished it today. I would have finished it yesterday if the day hadn't been so crazy. As it was, I stayed up late finishing "just one more chapter" and got only four hours of sleep. Combining blogging, office life, and a meddling grandmother with one of the most laugh-out-loud love stories I've ever read, The Cubicle Next Door is a must-read.

Read an excerpt on the publishers' website if you don't believe me. I'll be sure to blog more about this wonderful book in the weeks to come.

I'm also formulating something new - stay tuned!
