Take a look at this great post about not giving up as a writer. I laughed about the agent’s take on the dog narrator and how the writer took control. Hurray! So many books, so little time From the blog post I immediately wanted to hear what that canine character had to say.
In The Knife of Never Letting Go everything talks including a particularly wonderful dog. I loved that book. (I didn’t love the loss of the dog, but that’s another issue–one I’d like to take up with the author.)
I’ve added a favorite picture that I keep above my desk. It has helped me a lot.
