Cranking it up to bigger better faster

I am reading Philip Pullman’s The Golden Compass to my son. It started out, you know, pretty good, but for a while I was wondering what all the fuss was about. And then, very sneaky-like, you’re hooked so deep it’s too late to do anything about it.It’s wonderful, and we’re having a fabulous time reading it.

As a writer, I say read this book to get an example of what Donald Maass means by a breakout book. I’m hanging my head in despair. Why hadn’t I already thought of something bigger and wider for my Work in Progress? OK, well, I’ve been thinking about that and I’ve thought of something. I’m going to go to bed and notebook it for a while before I sleep.
