My Amazon order arrived on my doorstep this morning. Yay! I’m sure my hubby would just be like “More books? You haven’t read the ones on the bookshelf yet.”
Yeah, but I NEED these books. Well, I don’t know that I need them since I have a couple unread writing books on my shelf, but still…they are writing books.

As you know, I am in the process of reading through what I’ve written of my WIP so far. One thing I’ve noticed is that I really love my plot. However, I have a little trouble piecing the plot together in a smooth fashion and bringing all three POVs together at the right point.
I suppose that’s what I get for being a pantster who doesn’t keep track of her plot.
Along with that, one of my friends works for the police and says that some of my story is a little “off”. Yeah…probably should have done more research than reruns of Bones.
I am determined to get back on track and do this right. No more “winging” it. After all, with a third child soon to make an appearance, an abundance of time to write a novel is just going to dwindle even more.
Did I mention it is my goal to be published by the time I’m 30? My birthday’s next month…I’ll be 29. *gulp* Guess I better get on the ball!
You tell me...what one writing resource have you found most beneficial?
