On How to Take a Swing: "Good Prose" by Tracy Kidder and Richard Todd -

As I work on my small notes for this year’s NaNoWriMo (my first full attempt), I found this little gem on the LA Review of Books site. While the article is more of a book review, there’s are some interesting things of note that I found inspiring and useful for the growth of my future novel.

The great reread of Harry Potter has been completed. I’m currently a mess. Gonna start rereading Percy Jackson starting tomorrow. I won’t be such a mess with that series. (Or at least until I get to the Mark of Athena. Oh boy.)

Our kiss was anticlimactic. It wasn’t that the kiss was bad, but it was just a note of punctuation in our long conversation, a parenthetical remark made in order to assure each other of a deeply felt agreement, a mutual offer of companionship, which is so much more rare than sexual passion or even love.
