New to the blogging world, I am. I have always loved non-fiction writing, I was on my high school’s newspaper, (that is till they got rid of it), and I wish I had a reason to write again, especially now that I just finished John Green’s The Fault In our Stars and am very inspired by it.
TFIOS was a novel that I had wanted to read for a while, but the movie previews pushed me to buy the book and actually read it. I started reading it in the car on my way home from Wal-Mart and I was hooked. For anyone who has not read the book, I promise not to spoil it. hehe 😉 John Green has other popular novels that I am interested in now as well, mostly because his writing style is very intellectual and pleasant. I have never read anything like TFIOS before, but I hope to again. My boyfriend wants me to read Eragon, so of course that is next on my list.
When I was in high school, and I was sitting at the computer writing for the newspaper I kind of found something that I wanted to do all the time. I wrote many articles for the team, and I wished the school wouldn’t have gotten rid of my favorite class. (stupid school) I enjoy writing what I feel, or doing some research in order to write a better article. I used to want to write for The New York Times, but I knew that was never going to happen. I tried to write fiction, but a novel is not my type of writing, not at all. I’m not bad at it, but I feel forced to, like my fingers are being controlled to hit the keys. I enjoyed writing every literary analysis in HS, every one of those 12+ page papers. I always felt like I was never done, like there was so much more to say about it, and even if I never read those books, (which were most) I could still get no lower than a B+ on them, one of which I got a 97% on, the three points missing being my grammar, lol. If I wrote a book it would be something like National Geographic, or whatnot.
This new girl on the block is different, and my readers may love that, they also may hate it. I don’t want to be well-known, I only want to be looked at like I am worth something to this world. if I know someone reads my words and takes something away from it, then I am satisfied, even if I only changed the thinking of one soul, I am happy. I aim to broaden the horizons of others, and nothing short. if I made you think, I did what I wanted. TFIOS made me think, so thank you John Green, thank you. I am going out tonight to see this book’s movie, and I hope that I am not disappointed. One of my favorite actresses is playing the lead, so there is a plus!
I hope to have nothing short of my hopes. If I have, just wait, there is more coming. I will be reviewing the movie, but I wont give it away to anyone, no worries.
