roadmaps and hinderances
Everyone had a short reading list for me so I hit the "used" section of Amazon and completed my shopping list for a mere song or two.
It's quite interesting that most of these books aren't a lot more expansive than the instruction booklet that comes (recipes included) with a new crockpot. Except for King and Lamott, who have fleshed out their instruction with very readable autobiographical stuff, everyone else seems to have taken their own advice and cut to the chase...less and less is more.
Since I've been writing for a while for my own entertainment I don't know how much or if I will take any of this sage wisdom to heart. One or two not shown here would be best mulched in a blender with fruit juice and taken as extra fiber...like eating shredded wheat dry.
The hardest part for me? Every frickin' thing is in Black & White! My eyes are parched for color.
