" I've lost track of the number of people who want to be writers but never actually write anything. Talking about writing, dreaming about writing, can be very fun, but it won't get a book written. You've got to write." ~ Laurell K. Hamilton
What If No One Believes In Me?
I HAD TO SHARE THIS. It's absolutely perfect. Almost all writers go through the bullying phase where no one believes that they are capable, or that writing is even a career choice. This video is for all those who have been told that writing is going to make you a 'homeless failure' one day. All the thanks in the world to Jenna Moreci for making this. You go, girl.
NO SPOILERS.I have fINALLY gotten around to reading this amazing book. I went in with high hopes after watching YouTube reviews by lovely booktubers such as Sasha Alsberg (abookutopia), and I can honestly say that I was definitely not disappointed. Before going any further, I'd just like to add that the cover is so beautiful in real life. There's a lovely silver shine to the vines that is barely visible in the picture. I love it.
Now, I know this isn't a blog about studying, its about books and writing, but I believe studying is somewhat involved in both those things. This may be the most serious post I've ever made on this blog, but please bear with me. My exams are coming up, so I decided to share my top 6 study websites that I use. Keep in mind, I am a GCE O'Level student, so these may be more useful for O'level students, but I think everyone can use these nevertheless.
This website is probably the most useful one for me. It provides study notes, summarized and made into easy-to-understand formats, with mindmaps, and questions. It may not look the best, and maybe my summary may not sound too interesting, but it has helped me and lots of my friends a lot. There is an incredibly wide range of subjects, and I always find what I'm looking for, no matter how specific.
NO SPOILERS. I read this book at midnight in one sitting. Didn't put it down once. I didn't even notice the tears silently running down my face when I finished.
The Kite Runner is a moving story about the friendship between two boys, the hardships one has to face, regrets, love, and redemption. There is Amir, a rich boy with all the luxury one can have in life, and there is Hassan, the servant boy in Amir's household, living in a mere broken down shack behind Amir's mansion. These two boys have a strong bond. Hassan is willing to do anything for Amir. One day, this loyalty Hassan has for Amir changes both their lives. It is so touching, so moving. I can't even exaggerate with this book. I have read Hosseini's 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' as well (review on that coming soon), but personally, Kite Runner is the champion. None of Hosseini's other books can beat the position this book has in my heart. The writing style, the plot line, everything is so perf…
