I love books and am an avid reader. I'm 23 years old and hail from central Texas. I work as an emergency and 911 dispatcher and books often help me unwind after a rough day at work.

I love all genres of books and am always looking for my next read so I love suggestions!

For The Love Of Literature

I got paid last week.

Do you know what that means?


WHOOOOOOPS. I just ordered 9 more books. Bad hand.

The Madman Calls for Collaboration!

literarymadman:

Ok. Not really a full-on collaboration (though if any of you fellow writers would be interested in a team-up, I wouldn’t be against it…but I digress) As I mentioned in a post back a bit, I have been struggling with an important, supporting character in that I don’t like her…

Q: Many thanks for your reply. The idea of my message was that using "fuck" as a base for all the swearing is boring. In Russia we leave such swearing for unintelligent classes. Educated people enrich their vocabulary with more interesting swearing.

A:

neil-gaiman:

Yes. They don’t really do that so much in blue collar America, or not in the parts of blue collar America I’ve been in anyway. 

The American Gods short story I’m currently working on is set in the UK, where the swearing is slightly different, so you get sentences like

 “Such bullshit,” said a woman’s voice. “But you always were a bullshitter, Ollie, you pusillanimous little cock-stain.”

But then, that’s a different world again.

Yep. Impulse decision here,

I will be participating in NaNoWriMo and I am gonna spend the next eleven days collecting ideas and sources of inspiration and maybe get a very very brief and simple outline done.

Mainly, I’m just going to do this for the experience and practice. It will give me a goal to work towards and I think it will be an excellent exercise for my mind. Wooo!!

Welcome nursebibliophile :) I hope you enjoy your stay.

And to the rest of you newbies that I haven’t greeted, hullow!

Kinda thinking of participating in NaNoWriMo.

But the project I’m thinking of one is kinda interesting.
I’m just gonna start writing, and writing, and writing, with only the smallest of plans and just kinda….see what happens.

I dunno.

I hate when you are talking to someone, especially in a work environment and its work related, and they don’t fucking acknowedge you.

I mean, look at me, nod, do the fucking hokey pokey. I don’t care.

But don’t just ignore me.

1. It’s rude.
2. Later, don’t act like I didn’t give you the information.
3. IT’S RUDE.
4. WE ARE ALL FREAKING ADULTS. ITS NOT THAT HARD TO SAY “Okay.”
