This week we are going to talk about what we've learned from the books we've read. In my case, there has been so much that I'm sure I can't remember. My mother taught me how to read before I even started to school and I've been reading ever since. I love to read... as all writers do, I'm sure. So let's get started. Hopefully inspiration will hit. Please visit the other carnis below to see what they have to say.
I learned that a weak plot can be forgiven but not terrible characters.
I learned that you have to capture the reader's attention in the first few sentences or you've lost them because a lot of people stand at the bookstore and read a page or two before buying it.
I learned thar a bad cover can ruin a book's reputation before anyone has given it a chance.
I learned that you need to vary your scenes. Too much narration or too much talking can ruin an otherwise good story.
I learned that publishers will publish good books and bad books while turning down other good books and bad books.
I learned you should always start the book with something interesting and end with a bang.
That's it. Hope you enjoyed this short list. Next week join us for the exciting Interview with a Villain.
