Tip: The first week of April is National Library week. Start a list of books you’ve read. Include author, title and a brief blurb. Did you like it? Why or why not? Be specific. “It’s boring” or “Great read” won’t cut it. This will help you figure out what it is about a book that makes it good for you and you can use that in your writing.

Thought: “Anybody can write a three-volume novel. It merely requires a complete ignorance of both life and literature.” – Oscar Wilde

Teaser: Write a scene using the following: Florida, snow, frozen swimming pool.
