However, it never lasts long because something or someone inevitably will inspire me and then I can't type the words out fast enough. If I do get stuck WHILE I'm writing, I have to make myself get up and do something else for awhile and then come back to it. Otherwise, I'll write and rewrite a paragraph 100 times just trying to get the right words. After a break, without fail, I'll come back to the same paragraph and the words just flow. It's amazing how the creative part of the brain works.(less)

I thought this was a really gripping book and it had all the things that have to add up for me in fiction: a great protagonist, an attraction to the wrong guy (romance), rouge characters, politics, and more.
