Just got some new books...Trudi Canavan's 'Princess of the White' and Lemony Snicket's 'The Bad Beginning". I loved reading Trudi Canavan's Black Magician trilogy, and I'm hope this series will be equally as good. As I loved watching the film 'A series of unfortunate events', and generally books are better than the film version, I thought it might be inspiring for my own writing.

I've got to a bit of a sticking point with my novel. I've got to about 4,800 words so far...but I'm thinking too much about it all. I just need to write and see what comes out. Maybe some reading will give me the break I need.

It's always helpful to take a break, and reading books in your genre helps a lot, too. 4.8K is a great start. Stick to it, and you'll break through. Good luck!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Looks like you're new around here, so welcome :)

I love Trudi Canavan! So far I've only read The Magician's Apprentice and a little of the Ambassador's Mission, but i really want to sink my teeth into the Black Magician Trilogy as soon as I can.

Have you thought about doing NaNoWriMo in november? 50,000 words in a month and you're not allowed to edit or reread your work, just write like a maniac for a month straight? It might help the setback :)
