Judge A Book By Its Cover!

n283001

You know, I love books, writing and reading them both. But there’s one thing I like almost as much as that two: looking at all those beautiful and colourful covers. I know, they say, never judge a book by its cover, but sometimes (most of the times) I just have to. So, I decided to post my favourite book covers from time to time. Here’s the first one. It has everything that I like these days, line art, nice colours.

I can’t wait till it’ll land in my mailbox and I can judge by the words, too 🙂

Learn To Fly

As I tweeted about it earlier, I finished reading Stephen King’s ’On Writing’ today. I planned to write a review about it, but there’s a far more important thing that I’d like to tell you. (Sorry, Mr King but as you said the greatest thing I can learn about writing isn’t in your book, isn’t in any book to be honest. It’s all in me.) And that important thing is writing itself. What is it? And why is it so important?

Oh man, what a voice. What a voice!

The Ugly Truth

I never really understood why do people say: write about you know. Course it’s easy to write about something you’ve already seen or felt but where’s the sense of imagination then? That was the question for so long. Too long.

But today Stephen King thought me a lesson. Okay, way more than one. I’m reading his book ’On Writing’ currently and it’s fantastic. Not only he gives the reader practical advices but he also tells stories from his life as a writer. There are chapters where you laugh a lot and then there are some where you just want to have a drink with the old man and tell him you feel sorry cause that and that happened to him.

So, today he thought me that writing about what you know doesn’t always mean that you write about what you see. Sometimes it’s more likely about what you feel, think or imagine. Cause it’s all in you. You know it better than everybody else. Even though it might not resemble reality perfectly, the only thing that matters is you write the truth.

Should I Stay Or Should I Go

I really don’t know what to do. And I hate it. It wasn’t always this way. I still remember the first day when I saw him. Let’s call him X. It was love at first sight, even though I thought I’ll never see him again. He just came and I melted on that windy November night. I wasn’t the only one. The girl who sat beside me in high school said he’s *really* cute. And all the girls were talking about him. So, I kept my mouth shut and no one knew that I liked him, too.

Beautiful Disaster

When I started writing my second novel I didn’t really have a concept in my mind on what would it about. All I knew is that I wanted to write something really different from my first novel (called Carpe Diem) and that meant a comedy. Funny thing is that most of my short stories are aimed to be comedies and I’m also known as a joker but I didn’t really know where to start. So, I read a book on writing and I still didn’t know. I ended up starting another story, ’Almost Hepburn’ but I wasn’t happy with it.

Then I decided to take a week off and do nothing more just watching movies and start a new TV series as my favourite isn’t on till September. I started to watch Gilmore Girls and I immediately went like I want the vibe of the series in my book. You know, even though it’s not as juicy as Gossip Girl or doesn’t have murdering in it like The Mentalist or CSI or any other investigating show, it has an atmosphere that just catch you and you can’t get enough of it. Exactly that’s what I wanted. And than I had the idea. I wanted a simple yet instructive story that has a quirky but strong lead.

B!tch

Okay-okay, I’m just joking. Actually, Lorelai Gilmore is the best TV character ever written and my hero, too. But that’s another entry…
