In regards to Amber’s post from a few days ago, you know the one where she featured National Novel Writing Month? Yeah, that one. Well, I’ve since discovered this bit from YA author John Green and very much like what he has to say about NaNoWriMo…not to mention the writing process in general…and wanted to share it with you.
Gee. Zoo. He’s great! Except I really wish he’d hang up those wall hangings that are leaning on the wall behind him. Geesh.
Since today marks the halfway point of November, I think that if you have yet to embark on the supercool madness that is NaNoWriMo why not just start now and try to see if you can write 25,000 words before the month’s end. (That’s 1/2 a novel to those of you that don’t speak novelese.)
Ready set go!
It’s time for a mini-review (in 5 sentences or less) of John Green’s newest book, Paper Towns. Ready or not, here we go…
Margo is a cool, adventurous chick and her neighbor, Quentin…uh, not so much. The two are on the verge of graduating from high school and even though they were childhood BFFs they haven’t been close in years. Margo shows up at Q’s bedroom window one night and pulls him into a wild spree of pranks and sweet revenge on their peers. Then Margo disappears and no one can figure out if she ran away, committed suicide, or is just gone on another adventure of some sort…except for maybe Quentin, who decides to follow the clues. Paper Towns is a great quick read, full of suspense to the very end, written in a refreshingly realistic tone, and sure to please oodles of teen readers across the land.
