12. Carpe Diem by Autumn Cornwell
On the advice of friends in my writing group, I recently read Carpe Diem by Autumn Cornwell. Quite entertaining, especially the humor and unexpected plot twists.
It reminded me that to be creative, sometimes you need to explore wild ideas and see where they lead. This week, Ive been doing a little of that in my own writing, and it's led me to a much better ending for my work-in-progress. The challenge is to present the wild idea in a way that makes it seem perfectly logical within the story.
