Hope you all had a great weekend. We went to the Hershey Camper Show on Saturday- looking for a new camper to upgrade from the pop-up to. No luck yet, though we were close. Good thing the boy was with us, because seeing him in our front runner, knocked it out of the running. (The beds are too small to fit him- if they only were 4 inches wider!) We learned what won't work, now to find what will.
Speaking of working and not working. I have a question for you all. When you find a story that just sucks you in and puts you in the world and you can't put it down, how do you go back and read it and look for what the author did to make it work so well for you?
I keep trying to do this- to analyze works that grab me and pull me in so I can learn what the author did and try and do it with my own writing, except I get caught up in the story when I try to analyze it.
So, any tips you all have would be greatly welcomed!
