Let’s take a vote…

How do you like your books?

Hardcover or paperback?

This is purely out of my own curiosity, and my vote goes for hardcover! To me, a book has to be sturdy and strong, although it makes the book much bigger and heavier then it would be as a paperback.  What’s your opinion?

To My Poet Friends…

Image

I have so much respect for you.

Recently I’ve been having issues getting into my novel.  I just finished my first draft last week and now I have the usual slump of I-don’t-want-to-revise-all-of-this laziness.

So, following my “write every day” rule, I decided to try writing poetry.  I follow a lot of blogs that post only poems and I think every single piece I read is absolutely beautiful.

I sat down in my writing chair with a pen and paper and tried to start, but nothing happened.  Instead of doing my daily write I sat there for an hour staring at the blank page.  That page now has an impromptu sketch of my dog on it and I didn’t do any writing at all.

But now I truly realize just how amazing you all are.  Great work.

Stephen King

Stephen King

“The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of because words diminish your feelings – words shrink things that seem timeless when they are in your head to no more than living size when they are brought out.”
