Writer’s Mind

Sometimes I wonder why I want to be an author. I’m not the most eloquent. I’m not always able to adequitly convey what I want to in a scene (or spell) I know I like creating characters and worlds, adventures and stories but I don’t always completely think them through. Sometimes it’s just one thing about a character or story that I want to write about but that one thing never grows into a complete thing. <sigh> Why do I want to be an author?

Maybe you’ve noticed - Skylight Books is a bookstore with a tree. Occasionally the leaves from the tree fall onto the bookshelves below.  More frequently, it seems, the heavy shelves (which are on wheels) are moved away and tucked between other shelves and then chairs are brought in, and a microphone stand, and sometimes a folding table with snacks. Then people gather under the tree, which grows under a skylight, and listen to someone tell them a story.

That’s part of what makes Skylight Books an important place. There are a lot of other reasons but the Naked Bookseller must move on. If you work at a great bookstore, or are friends with one, tell us your story here. Thanks to Skylight Books and all of our book store partners

That is a pretty sweet looking library. A tree in the middle would make me actually want to stay and read under it, rather than just take my books and head home.

I wonder how long that lasted. I hate comic deaths, they are just too undramatic. No matter how great the death is or how much you love the character, eventually they are just going to come back. So there&#8217;s not really any need to be upset. (I wish I could talk better.)

Started playing this three pack series because of the movie. The action is pretty awesome, but there are so many frustrating moments that almost outway all the cool stunts and free running. Has anyone else played it recently and found it to be super annoying? I wonder if it had been made more recently if the stuff I find frustrating wouldn&#8217;t be there.

I don&#8217;t know how many times this happened to me in school. I totally know how you feels Jennifer.

Book suggestions

So I just finished reading latest Heroes of Olympus book. So with nothing new to read, does anyone have any suggestions? Books I’ve read and liked so far are the Kane chronicles, Artemis Fowl series, the sisters grimm series I also read manga like Bleach and Skip beat but aren’t really interested in any new manga. Also, though I’ve liked those books, I don’t really like to read anything “similar” to them again. Something that’s like the same story but with different characters. I’d rather read something completely different.

I really like to read youth books since that’s mostly what I write and I don’t really care for the drama of teen or young adult novels. So any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks.
