Late Researching

I may have been down for the 21st. And it may now be June.

Okay, I was, and it is. I really don’t have a good excuse other than…okay, I don’t really have a excuse. I had time. I just got distracted.

But, the theme. The theme for this month’s Teens Can Write Too blog chain is researching!

And researching, as a writer, can be very…erh, interesting. And rather alarming if you are a friend that is scrolling through the writer’s history…but why would you be doing that? That’s snooping!

Many writers, including me, have frequented the baby names sites, searches on bullet wounds, strange diseases, general wounds, oh, and broken bones. Injures/wounds/illnesses are all very popular. We love to make our characters suffer, apparently.

I remember some of my research being quite strange. Some is harmless–a word in a different language, a food recipe–while some is full of injuries, recovery time, different types of comas. When I think about it, most of my research is pretty tame compared to some. I guess I’ve been fairly nice to my characters? *cues characters yelling at me* Or not.

So, if you click on your writer friend’s history accidentally, don’t be alarmed. Really.  Don’t.

Also, I apologize for this being a terribly short post. Again, I have no excuse.


TCWT Blog Chain

So, I was sure I was the 10th, which is why this post is later in the day then I intended. Apologies for that.

Now, I’ve already written a very long post about a book that changed by life, Anne of Green Gables, and I doubt you guys want to read more gushing about Anne, lovely as she is.

Luckily, there’s another book that changed my life. Currently, it’s in a battered form of blue paperback book, sitting on my book shelf. It’s the first book I properly read that wasn’t a ‘Early Reader’ book.

The book in question, is Bunnicula.

Hare today, gone tomorrow.

Golly, I love this book. It makes me laugh so my sides hurt. It’s about a vampire rabbit(he drinks vegetable juice), a slightly crazy(oh, come on, extremely crazy) cat, and a dog that just wants to relax. And then we get a another dog, who’s a werewolf.  According to Chester.

And it reminds me of Artemis Fowl, for some reason. Maybe the humor?

I first read this when I was…seven? Again, I didn’t want to admit I succumbed to reading. I was being taught how to read…and learning was boring. In my opinion.

But this really fueled my love for read. So thank you Harold. Please bring your editor another book soon, and have a chocolate cupcake(with cream in the center) from me.
