This month's question is: What is my favorite writing craft book? Answer: Save the Cat! Writes a Novel. It breaks up a story into 15 plot points. All you have to do is follow the plot points and voila, you have a novel. Right. If it were only that easy! But seriously, it takes out some of the mystery of how to write a good novel. I have found it quite useful on my writing journey.
And now for the latest report of German Shepherd, Klaus's destruction:
My daughter's wallet. Apparently, Klaus has an appetite for fine leather.
And styrofoam pots. 😁
Klaus is super toothy. I suppose chewy toys aren't enough for his needs, poor thing. ("Poor us," says Sherry, "and poor OUR things")ReplyDelete
Haha! He is most definitely a mouthy dog!Delete
Sorry about your daughter's wallet. I like Save the Cat Writes a Novel too. I'm hoping it helps me plot out my next book, though I'm sure it won't be as easy as it sounds.ReplyDelete
Any which way you look at it, writing a novel isn't easy. But Save the Cat definitely gives some good guidelines.Delete
Oh, Klaus. He's teething. It'd almost be cute if he hadn't ruined your daughter's wallet.ReplyDelete
That puppy has been teething a while. You should see the damage he's caused!Delete
That writing craft book does indeed seem like a useful tool. I'm sure it has helped many authors to become more accomplished and successful.
OMG! What are we gonna do with that rascal Klaus? Maybe he's a vegetarian and was hungry for the greenbacks inside your daughter's wallet. :) Maybe after dining, he was in the mood for a little pot. :)
Seems like Klaus is an excellent candidate for obedience school.
Have a great month, dear friend Sherry!
Klaus is definitely a good candidate for obedience school! I'm not there to help with the training, so obedience school is most certainly in order.Delete
Oh no! That puppy certainly has an appetite for the non-digestable. I hope your property can handle these young years. :)ReplyDelete
There has been lots of damage. Fortunately, the ex is a very good handiman.Delete
My favorite writing book!ReplyDelete
He's a chewer. The dog I had growing up ate my 45 records, the coffee table legs, and a hole in the wall behind the couch.
Your dog sounds a lot like Klaus!Delete
He is probably stressed from sadness after Bootsy.ReplyDelete
Nah. Klaus and Bootsy didn't get along so well. Now, if it was Schultz misbehaving like this, I'd say you were on to something.Delete
We have the same favorite craft book. As to Klaus...puppies are just that. At least this wasn't your favorite pair of Adidas.ReplyDelete
I saw a lot of people selected Save the Cat. It's a good book!Delete
Maybe it's time to crate Klaus with some doggie chew toys. I like dogs, but not the puppy stage. Oy.ReplyDelete
Klaus has lots of chew toys and spends a decent amount of time in his crate. He just has a lot of energy and is quick to get in trouble.Delete
Puppies can really be a test of patience.ReplyDelete
My favorite craft books would be Zissner's "On Writing Well" but it may be shifting to Orr's, "A Primer tor Poets and Readers of Poetry" which I just read.
I'm am unfamiliar with both of those books. I'll have to check them out.Delete
Hi Sherry loved the read. Have at last solved my Blogger problem today (Thurs). Hope you and family are well and safe.ReplyDelete
That's good news! I hope I can once again comment on your blog.Delete
Yikes! Looks like Klaus has the same taste for things that aren't his as my daughter's Newfoundland has for her little son's toys. Nuts! I've got to find this Save the Cat book everyone's talking about. Thanks for the tip. All best to you!ReplyDelete
Save the Cat is a popular choice today.Delete
Oh my! Must hide things from Klaus.ReplyDelete
Or learn to make everything invisible. :)Delete
I had a dog (now deceased) who had a taste for leather. He also liked soap and crayons.ReplyDelete
Dogs have the strangest sense of taste!Delete
Oh dear! Keep this up Klaus and you'll find yourself in the dog houseReplyDelete
He's been in the doghouse a few times!Delete
las fotos han sido interesantesReplyDelete
Klaus has certainly caused a lot of destruction.Delete
I had a dog that liked leather too. So interesting to see what they eat- though not always fun to find things destroyed.ReplyDelete
My ex has had quite enough of Klaus's destructive nature!Delete
WOw crazy dog with a huge appetiteReplyDelete
Crazy is right!Delete
You freaked me out for a second, thinking the dog ate terracotta. I mean, I'm not saying it can't happen, but generally that doesn't get chewed. Just Styrofoam though, whew!ReplyDelete
I had a productive month reading for a read-a-thon, writing a few book reviews, checking in with hospitalized family members, and writing a WEP flash fiction.
Have you seen the notebook on the current (Aug 25) giveaway at Operation Awesome? That is some amazing custom art. Debut authors are always surprising me.
I'm ready for the summer heat to be over. 🥵
I have not seen the current giveaway on Operation Awesome. I will see if it's still up.ReplyDelete
