Cintia,

Not sure how to respond here. I get what you're saying about "so much competition," and why that might be discouraging. But most of the fiction writers I know who do succeed will tell you...they simply HAD to write. And they were this way years before they were ever published. The desire to write stories was so strong they did it whether or not the stories ever got published. I'd say, if you're really meant to do this, stop thinking about "the industry" and rediscover the desire to simply write for the love of writing. There's always room "in the industry" for one more great story, well written well and well told. (less)

There's probably several very close to the top spot. But it might be Peace Like a River by Leif Enger. SO well written. I remember stopping so many times, just to re-read things he'd said, and the way he'd said them.(less)

Ralph was thrilled with his dramatic weight-loss in this new program...until this afternoon. He reached for a can of spinach on the top shelf in a crowded grocery aisle and his shorts hit the floor.

A very entertaining WW2 mystery with a nice underlying romantic thread. A very easy read. Not as suspenseful as some I've read, but I never lost interest.

“Put your trust in God's wisdom, in his love for you, then adjust yourself to whatever he decides is best”
