Re: What are you reading?

I still have not read To Kill a Mockingbird but I really want to. What is it about the book do you feel that has such appeal that has made it such a popular book?

Re: Writing Prompts

If you want to be a good writer then, here's a news flash, you need to be writing! Some writers write every day, those of use who are not full time writers, write whenever we get the chance. But the key is, to write as often as you can. Practice won't make perfect but it will certainly make you bett...

Re: All those questions you've been dying to ask

Here's a question I will pose, to hopefully get some dialogue going. Do you prefer first person or third person for narrating your stories and why? I have heard time and time again that using first person is usually the best way to go unless you have a good reason for using third person omniscient n...

Re: Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

I think that's the sign of a great book, when someone gets so upset when it ends. But yeah cliff hangers are very frustrating! You'll have to let us know how you like it when you get to the end. I haven't read it yet but it sounds interesting. I haven't seen the movie either, I'm curious how they wo...

Self Publishing

Though I am not currently going this route, it is my backup plan in case the traditional methods don't pan out. I am very curious to hear from those who have gone this route. I would love to hear any insights and advice you could give.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Traditional Publishing

I myself am going to try to go the traditional route. I am eager to get started in my attempts although I am rather a glutton for punishment. I would love to hear from those of you who have been published in the traditional manner. What steps you took, any advice you have, things you wished you'd do...

Re: Venting

Every author has felt that way at some point, well any author that cares about writing something good at least lol. That's usually the point I share what I've done with someone supportive but honest. Someone who won't tell you its crap but will tell you if something isnt working. That's a good way t...

Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare

Just started this book. I'm really excited to read it. I read Clockwork Angel a little over a week ago and I really enjoyed it. I think I like it better even than her first series but I will reserve judgment until I finish the series. I have heard this book is really good and that the ending has a c...

Re: The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan

I finished reading this book and I have to say I really liked it. When I first started reading Riordan's second series I had two thoughts, first I really like the characters from his original Percy Jackson series so I was afraid this second series wouldn't involve them at all. My second thought was ...
