Dilemma

I'm having a dilemma.

I am realizing once more how much what I read affects what I write.  Holly Claus was quite wonderful inspiration, but since then I've picked upOphelia by Lisa Klein.  It is a very interesting book, but at the moment, I need to put it down.  When I write in third person, but read in first person or old English, my brain becomes muddled.  I want to write similar to what I'm getting my inspiration from.

Because I haven't written a whole lot in these last four months, I'd forgotten about this.  Now, I am reminded very clearly what I need to do to write well and give my readers a well-written story.  For now, while all these ideas are prominent in my mind and BEGGING to get out, I will be reading third person.  So, unfortunately, I'm not going to read Ophelia...  Well, not yet at least.  I really enjoyed what I read so far and will probably read it next semester when I have no time to write anyway.

On a happier note, I have been very very blessed this Christmas (already) with giftcards to...guess where?  Barnes and Noble, of course, my favorite store!  So far, I've received....are you ready for this?  $90.00.  OH YEAH!  I'm going to have a party there!  I asked for several books for Christmas, so when I see which ones I get, I'll go and buy the rest.  :)

What did I ask for for Christmas?  These:
Dracula by Bram Stoker;   Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery;   Knight of the Maison-Rouge by Alexandre Dumas;   The Face of a Stranger by Anne Perry;   The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas;   The Robe by Lloyed C. Douglas;   and I can't remember the others... I think there were two more or something.

Well, now I'm off to do last minute Christmas shopping!   Happy Reading! :)
