Books for Inspiration

Dear Readers, One of my ultimate-favorite leisurely activities is writing. I love writing fantasy stories and daily in my journal, but lately I have been stuck! I haven’t been able to get past this section of my novella where my main character (a demon killer) is in a relationship where her boyfriend (a vampire) is obsessively controlling. Basically, she’s in an abusive relationship with this evil being, and she needs to find a way out, but a part of her doesn’t want to. There is also another sexy man involved who happens to be her partner in the whole demon-killing thing. That’s fun. So, to cure my writer’s block, I decided to pick up a couple books to burn through. Maybe these will help. I grabbed The Faith of a Writer by Joyce Carol Oates, Reading Like a Writer by Francine Prose, The Virginia Woolf Writers’ Workshop by Danell Jones, and A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf. I’m hoping these will give me the edge I need to bust through this rut! Actually, while I was writing this I just had an epiphany of what should happen in the story! Horray! (Not kidding at all.)
