The Lovely Bones

Sorry for the lack of updates over the last couple of days. I’ve been writing some on the novel manuscript, but to be honest, I’m finding myself sucked into Alice Sebold’s incredible novel, The Lovely Bones. It’s an incredibly sad, sweet story, and I’ve found myself moved to tears several times — and I’m only about halfway through the book!

I’m reading this not only as a reader, but also as a writer. How do you work with a main character who dies within the first few pages of the book? Sebold’s work is just … man, I don’t even have words. I’m loving this book. When I finish — which may take awhile,  because I’m savoring this one — I’ll do a full review. Updates may be sparse over the next week, but I promise I haven’t forgotten The Ugly, which will wrap up Influences (The Good, The Bad & The Ugly) …

More soon.
