Yes, I have been. Other than changing the look of my blog. Which will probably change once again, because I'm not sure WHAT I want. Which has been just like my reading. I'm currently reading GOING BOVINE and darn, this a a great book. But it depresses me too, because it is so well written that I could NEVER, EVER compete with a writer like Libba Bray.
I read her Gemma Doyle series, and yes, they were very well written, but there is something about the voice in this book that just grabs me. I like the tone and the style of it all. I wish I could write like that. I wish I could talk like that most times, too!
Do you ever get into a book, and wonder, wow, how did this person come up with this idea and figure out how to write it down to make it enjoyable? Then wonder how you ever lived because this book is so fricken good? Do you ever get so attached to a character or an author or a style of writing, that you look out for similar books, but at times get disappointed?
Yeah, this is how I get at times. Weird. I know.
