I read books of many genres...and think through what I find well done and what I might have done differently.

Then I would suggest that an aspiring writer find readers who will read critically and share honest feedback. These are often not good friends or relatives. Instead, join writers' groups and be a critical reader as well as a writer. Sometimes it is painful but it is always useful to find out what rang truthfully, what was confusing and what was downright misguided or boring.
Then I put the work aside and move on to something else. Coming back after a few weeks lets me see what I had skimmed over in the past. I can read it "anew" and see for myself where the poor phrasing or needless repetition obscures the message or rings false.

Another is a longer story about Moises Torones and the Spanish Brotherhood of pirates based in Gibraltar. The third is tentatively called "Judith's War" and features the women of the Revengers who unite to fight for causes dear to them. I am not yet sure which one will emerge as the 2018 book (I aim for one each year now).(less)

I am finding the world exhausting but often exhilarating. A simple discussion about personal pronouns led me to think about the struggles of some people to live in this world as their authentic selves.

Personal pronouns? Can anything seem as bland and uninteresting? Bear with me.
