I'm afraid to th I want to start off by saying that this wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I'm afraid to think this because I've been disappointed in Hamilton since Obsidian Butterfly. I'm afraid to hope. Hope is a bad friend when men with guns have you. But my lioness and their lions lusted after each other, sort of. Hope will lie to you, but lust is what it is; it never lies.
Hope would keep me hoping, but lust might be a weapon I could use to divide them And there it is. We get back to the Hamilton we've all come to know over the past few years. The one that latches onto a word or two and beats it into the ground. Someone please mail Hamilton a thesaurus.
The Flirt by Kathleen Tessaro
This passage isn't a rarity either and it's a constant reminder of what a lazy writer she has become. I'm going to fast forward to the afterword now. I found it hilarious in a bad waysad, and frustrating and it made me want to deduct a star from my review score.
She comes off as incredibly pretentious and arrogant and I honestly wish I hadn't read it and just stopped reading when Anita's story ended. She talks about how people ask her all the time where she gets her ideas and how she can write a whole book.
If you've read anything by her it won't take you long at all to find conversations, phrases, descriptions, scenes, and explanations practically pulled word for word from previous books.Must Read Books for Men That Will Get More Girls, Increase Confidence & Charisma - Non PUA Books
I can understand trying to explain things for new readers but come on, she doesn't even try to hide the fact that she's lifting whole passages and copied and pasted them into new books. And, the story in Flirt was only pages long! About a third of the novella was stuff I had read in previous installments of the series. To me, this isn't the sign of a strong writer, it's the sign of a lazy one that's struggling, and I find it comical that's she's trying to give advice to aspiring authors.
I know I'm spending a lot of time on a part of the book that wasn't even the story but it just really struck a nerve. First, we read the original scene in the novel, then we get a retelling of the original event that inspired Anita's scene, THEN we get a comic of the scene. When I was reading Anita's bit I was bored to tears, so you can imagine my surprise when it shows up not once, but twice more.
And just the way she writes in the afterword she's making it sound like she's soooo clever for coming up with Flirt from her "real-life" experience.
I'm going to tell you the first scene that came into my head, because most books start with a scene for me. I'll tell you the first idea, and I'll even tell you the fertile ground that that idea found to land on, which happened nearly a year before I'm going to tell you the schedule I kept, the pages I wrote per day, the music I listened to, and the books I read for extra research while writing the book.
I am going to lay my process bare for you.
