The first step to admitting you have a problem is to buy more LEGOs. That’s how it works, right? Regardless, I’m officially buying LEGO sets faster than I can build them, but the LEGO sets I buy are expensive enough that they keep coming with awesome freebies to tide me over until my next major goal is met. The current major goal is finishing revisions to book 5 and sending the first draft to my editor. In the meantime, I just completed a major freelance editing job, and this is the result.
Hans Christian Andersen (40291) — 307 pieces
As a writer and reader, this was the perfect set for me!
First, I built the spine of the book.
With the spine flipped over as a base, the book cover and pages were attached to it.
I loved the intricacy of the book page diorama bases!
And finally, the completed set, featuring the master storyteller himself, and a peek into the world of one of my favorite stories by him, “The Ugly Duckling.”
