Books only seem to give you one "idea" of "how things should be" and when what's going on for you doesn't fit their idea you get more frustrated.
Yeah..I completely hear where you are coming from. I just feel a little lost being a first timer, it would be nice to have some tricks of the trade to try when I get stuck...my fear is a screaming baby that I can't seem to soothe no matter what I try!
