I try to conceptualize storyboard plot lines and scenes first, but even when I know where the story is headed, sometimes I can't get there. I just stop, and do anything else until that moment when the words start flowing. The trick to this system-- once you get started, keep going!(less)

I love reading books where the author clearly created a giant map before starting, and all of the pieces came together at the end. When I write, I strive to make my readers say, "Wow, that was cool!" and I love it when they do!(less)

Jack Reacher #4, by Lee Child

Running Blind (Jack Reacher, #4)Running Blind by Lee Child

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


It was very helpful to learn a few things about Reacher that become relevant in future books, like why he was able to do all the traveling without working.


The plot is pretty solid, and I very much enjoyed the relationship attempt that Reacher makes. I do like the way Lee Child avoids re-telling details in subsequent novels, making it so the reader

The Taste of Despair by Darin C.  Brown
“My soul lightened as I realized I could help her. I rolled her body flat, like Grandpa taught me. I swept my finger inside her cold mouth to make sure her breathing passage was open, and I placed my mouth on hers, carefully pinching her nose, and breathed life into her lungs.
Betsy stirred, sputtered a cough, and opened her eyes.
“Now you kiss me?” she said, so weakly I could barely hear her.”

“I swam through the thick, smelly, greyish ocean of pressure toward nowhere.”
Darin C. Brown, The Taste of Despair

“Well, one of the kids from school called me stupid because I didn’t catch the football,” I said.
“Was this kid named Albert?” Mom asked.
“No, it was Kenny.”
“Listen. Unless Albert Einstein is at your school, you’re the smartest one there. Look how fast you solved the Rubik’s cube. I bet none of your classmates can even solve it at all, let alone in under a minute. And… what’s 316 times 128?”
I paused for a moment. “40,448.”
“I guarantee that nobody in your school can do that either. Stupid? Forget about it.”
Darin C. Brown, The Taste of Despair

“It was 3:57 AM. An explosion hit me from beneath my bedroom floor like an atomic bomb, jolting me awake. Its concussive wave carried horrible colors, smells and textures, but among them floated a familiar purple. I sat up, shivering with revulsion while the aftershocks flowed over me. As I focused on the warm, sweet purple buried inside the frigid, choking grey, my eyes widened with recognition. Mom!”
