Today over lunch I read a couple of chapters in a book written by Julie Mangano, someone I only know via social media, but feel a connection to as we’ve chatted several times. Her book, Braha weaves family history into an intriguing story with mystery, romance, and more. I’m really enjoying it. And as I read today, I paid a bit more attention to the form as well as the content. And I realized, well, I realized, I have a lot to learn! I know nothing about writing dialogue, keeping characters consistent, creating a history for them, deciding how a chapter will flow, and on, and on, and on.
