He helped me to realize that to be a better writer what I need to do
is WRITE! I have been stressing out so much on sharing my love for
reading and posting book choices every week that I sometimes forget
that I need to spend my limited time writing also!
I recently finished "All the Light We Cannot See" by Anthony Doerr!
It is a great book and I enjoyed it very much. It was my Patty Pick last week.
The richness of the writing makes the characters come alive in your imagination's eye. One part of writing that I struggle with is dialogue. Anthony Doerr's writing is a textbook
on dialogue! I hope to continue to study other writers as I share their wonderful books
I will be making my Patty Picks a biweekly event for a while, as I work on my own
writing. I am searching for an agent for my first book and researching and writing
my second book. Hope you all understand! Look for my next Pick on the new
book by Susan Crandall titled "The Flying Circus" on 06/18/15! :)
