Bookshelves

 

I totally need a new bookshelf! Mine is overflowing. The shelves are two rows deep and I’m starting to stack book on top and around the shelves. The other day I went to the thrift store in search of a small bookshelf I could put in the corner, but instead I came home with more books…

 

I’m pretty sure this counts as an addiction, the only problem is I don’t want to be cured. 

But that means I get to try out this ideaI of using crates to create a bookshelf. It’s easy and it looks super cool! I think I should be able to find some at Michaels and then stain them to look pretty 😀

I’ll post pictures when I make my own.

Writing your Novel from the Middle

This is an amazing book that I highly recommend investing in. It discusses starting your book from a “Mirror Moment”in the middle of your story and working from there. But his strategy is very simple and can be used by all types of writers and at any stage of the process. It’s a valuable tool to help focus your story and know what it’s really about.
