IWSG: a place where writers and friends share woes or hugs.
Welcome to mine!



January 6 question - Being a writer, when you're reading someone else's work, what stops you from finishing a book/throws you out of the story/frustrates you the most about other people's books?


Characters that I can't empathize with as well as forcing me to believe something just because the author said so.

A good author is like a good waiter: if they do their job right, you will never notice them.
