Writers get all busy today, as it is the first day of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) so all the best to all of you are participating! I hope that November will not be too quiet or it will be too lonely for me and the rest who have not joined the fun!
Not a big blog post today. It's been a busy weekend but in all the 'busy-ness', I still got myself a few more books to read - three of which are Sister by Rosamund Lupton, Family Album by Penelope Lively and I am Number Four by Pittacus Lore. I am so excited to read I am Number Four. I couldn't find a paperback so I've got a hardback which is toooooo heavy to carry around with me (Kindle to be considered??? Hmmmm.) And of course I also look forward to reading the others!
And...I'd like to share with you a very beautiful quote which my bestfriend sent me (Thanks, Wen!). It's from a book entitled "A Perfect Day" by Richard Paul Evans. Here it is:
"All life belongs to you, [young novelist] and do not listen to those who would shut you up into corners of it and tell you that it is only here and there that art inhabits, or those who would persuade you that this heavenly messenger wings her way outside of life altogether, breathing a superfine air, and turning her head from the truth of things. There is no impression of life, no manner of seeing it and feeling it, to which the plan of the novelist may not offer a place."
By Henry James
