Jane Eyre and Space Opera

I'm taking a short break in the middle of my mid morning writing. I woke up a little early and was doing some dishes while listening to my Jane Eyre audiobook.

Great Blog Post by Johnny B. Truant on Writing and Reaching the Dream of a Novel.

There's a countdown in this blogpost in which he lays out things that he's learned writing a few novels. Since he's written this he's written several more best selling kindle books and I know that at least one of them is still ranked somewhere in the three thousand rank (that's pretty good).
