Hi everyone, hope you are all well. I’m not had some sort of flu whatever over the holidays and really washed me out. Mind you when awake all I did was read, and buy books! I got a kindle fire for xmas and some rather nice amazon vouchers (yea!) .
I have spent some time also researching online writing course as I feel it is about time I start that love story. There are numerous sites for new writers but I really need something more constructed that will make me focus. I have found a couple but think I will go with creative writing introduction at UBC.
I have also been downloading some wonderful books, love stories, how to write, how to publish.See I am being very serious. I have also joined the Goodreads Challenge for 2016, I am going for 150 books this year. i am sure I will get there!!
Two of the love stories I have re-read during my stay at home time are:
The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger – A love story confounded by time itself. Plus the ebook version I got had part of the follow up story of their daugher and her two husbands! Think that will have to be my next purchase.
My second book is a classic and I loved it when we read it at school although I was too embarrassed to say that out loud -boys you know don’t read sissy books – well they did not admit to it if they did.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – this is just an amazing love story between two strong willed people. I love the language, maybe my inclination is to write a historical love story..
Let me know what your favourite love story novel is and why.
