I started reading a novel this morning, I found it in a virtual/online library and it really kept my interest. It was one part mystery, one part police procedural, and I will get back to reading it soon. I was advised once that the best writers are avid readers first, and I can see the logic in that. I might review it on my niche review blog later, haven’t yet decided fully.
A Lesson From Charles Dickens
I read somewhere recently that one of Charles Dickens’ novels was originally published not as a book, but as a series of articles. Whether the story is based in fact or not, it’s still a cool story, and (especially) in the blogging age, very helpful to aspiring writers everywhere.
Assuming the story is true, why not take a page (or a few) from his playbook?
