I shouldn’t have, but did

Beach Buddy, aka the Oceanside Trenchcoat Guy, and I attend Coffee with a Cop in Oceanside every month. Barnes & Noble hosted the July event. While Bruce was filming a live video on the patio, I went into the store and bought two books.

Yes, I probably shouldn’t have, but I did.

I shouldn’t have because I’m still trying to donate outdated “how to write” books I bought years ago. The local friends of the library foundation doesn’t want them. I thought about leaving them in the laundry room, but I’m fairly certain that people at the apartment complex won’t want them either. I don’t think any of my neighbors have writing ambitions. And some of them don’t speak English. So there’s that, too.

I confess that my new books also are about writing; however, they aren’t “how to write” books for aspiring writers. One of them is titled Writing Without Rules, by Jeff Somers. The second one is Write Smart Write Happy, by Cheryl St. John. I confess that I bought them in the hope of recharging my own writing aspirations.

Time will tell.
