    Kyle Would Be Proud Of Me...

    ...I think.

    Everyone who has read my posts knows that I like to poke at Kyle a bit about plotting and such things.

    The funny thing is, no matter how much I poke at him about it, I do take his advice seriously and pay attention to what he's saying.

    That being noted...

    My girlfriend, my son and I were out and about today and we made a stop at a St. Vincent de Paul store. While she was looking for some clothes for our two youngest, I kinda wandered around checking out whatever caught my eye.

    I went, like I always do, over to the bookshelves because books are always $.50 for a paperback and $1.00 for a hardcover. I have found some very good deals, including a brand new copy of The Barbecue Bible from Steven Reichlen for a buck. That book sells for almost 25 bucks so I was a happy camper.

    Anyway, as I was looking through the paperbooks, I happened across a copy of The Bedford Handbook for Writers (third edition) for $.50 so I decided to grab it.

    I got it home and after just a cursory glance, I see some things in it that I may find helpful at some point. I still won't be reading it in detail because I could tell that, like English class, it would just confuse me and create a literary "vapor lock". But, as a handy little reference to look in when I have something grammatical that bugging me, it should be pretty useful.

    I can't believe I actually bought one, but I am glad I only had to spend $.50 on it. LOL

    But I'm still not outlining or plotting. LOL
