Just got this in the mail yesterday. It's Donald Maass's newest book, The Fire in Fiction: Passion, Purpose, and Techniques to Make Your Novel Great.
I haven't bought a new writing book in a long, long time, so this is a little treat for me. Since it's from Maass, I'm hoping it has lots of good info in it. I'm sure it does.
I'll be reading this today - probably out on the deck since it is gorgeous outside - and also reading From Russia with Love. I'm so glad I gave Ian Fleming another chance - maybe Casino Royale was the exception to the rule, but he is a much better writer than I thought. I'm thoroughly enjoying this Bond book and I'm thrilled that I have several more to read after this. I always like it when I have a steady stream of something I enjoy.
I also will be diving into the manuscript today. I am very close to finishing - maybe this weekend will be the perfect opportunity to do just that.
Have a great Saturday!
