book-talk ~ about books I'm writing

Several stories are clamoring to get out.
I need to let them have their way.
But which first?

a recent read:

I love when information helps clarify a point I've been struggling to wrap my brain around. After reading Story Trumps Structure by Steven James, I now know *why* I love intriguing mysteries, don't like gut-wrenching suspense, and run from gross-out horror.

Apparently, mysteries are cerebral and appeal to curiosity, while suspense hinges on fear emotion and horror evokes a visceral response.

And while all three elements are popular within most genres, horror and suspense usually ruin an otherwise good read for me. And now I have words for why!

Well ... it's Wednesday (hump day), and the moon's in Aquarius (which I've heard is good for networking), so when better to start up a new blog?

Now, ... what to talk about ... ?
Oh, yeah ... books!
