This Week in Reading #2

I’m still reading through Peter Robinson. I read The First Cut, which wasn’t an Inspector Banks novel. I was disappointed about that. The novel was clearly written more than ten years ago, so although interesting, it was definitely an older book. I liked it well enough but it won’t go down as a favorite. I like the Inspector Banks character and learning more about him and I just didn’t care that much about the main character of this book.

I also read Grave Innocents, which was an Inspector Banks novel. It took me a bit to get into the book, which is why I have only two books this week but once I got there I quite liked it. There were several threads that seemed related but weren’t. As always, I’m reading out of order. I’d really like to read the book where he meets Annie!

I also stared Story Engineering but I’m less than a quarter of the way through. I’m struggling with it. I find I don’t think like the concept of the book. I’m finding it hard to consider thinking that much about writing. Writing is something I do, not something I think about, which the author will say that only really good authors, like Stephen King can do and I am wasting time because I don’t know what I’m doing. Maybe, maybe not. I had hoped to add tools to the writing box to help me but this makes me feel like I have to sit around planning consciously forever in order to write a book rather than just sitting down and doing it.
