Just Another Struggling Writer

The lamentations of yet another person struggling to write a novel.

Fiction Friday; We Ride the Storm

This Week’s Read: We Ride the Storm by Devin Madson

Percent Read: 47%

Thoughts So Far: Really into it! The three main POVs are all engaging (though I have to say Rah’s is the least interesting; the whole fighting for the colonizers who enslaved us arc is really hard to root for, even if the POV character is reluctant about it). There is grit and grime and realism without straying too far into the dark where I would get turned off. I probably would have binge read the majority of this book in a single day if I hadn’t made the very conscious decision to set it aside in order to get some other work done. I look forward to finishing it over the weekend!

I did end up DNFing Obsidian Tower. I had read that it straddled YA and adult, but I felt it leaned too YA for me, and the plot was straying more from the, I guess, adult storylines I was hoping I would get. Ah well, we soldier on.

About Me

Kerry Share’s love for writing started, as it so often does, as a love of reading at an early age. At age 11 she wrote her first short story, a Harry Potter knockoff of dubious quality, and her love for creative expression was born. Throughout her teen years she continued to foster that passion through derivative work, and at 23 she turned her eye to original fiction.

Now in her thirties, having taken a break from creative endeavors to cope with an ever changing life and landscape, she is determined to make her dream of a writing career reality.
