Here we have it, the first book review of the year and it’s already off to a great start! This week I read The Princess Bride by William Goldman, the same writer of the screenplay for the movie. I think I am like most when I say I had no clue that The Princess Bride was a book before a movie. Whether you have seen the movie or not, this book is a great weekend read.
Let’s get into the review!
There are many avenues a writer can take in their career. Most hope to become novel writers, selling bestsellers that line the shelves in major book retailers. Some become bloggers, others become journalists, product reviewers. Writers can take to other industries, such as writing scripts for movies and tv series, or, as I will be talking about in this blog post, video games.
Let’s get into it!
2021 has been an interesting year for writers. Whether you call it order or chaos, it has had its ups and downs that made it something unique and challenging. One of the greatest challenges, however, is the challenge to overcome procrastination and get as much writing done as possible. It’s a challenge every year, but with these new circumstances we all find ourselves in, did you sink or swim?
Let’s talk about it!
This week I am reviewing Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes, the translation by Tobias Smollett. Don Quixote is a popular classic, with many accomplishments in the literary world, from being considered the first literary novel and being the most sold book in the world. There is a lot to talk about when it comes to this book review.
With that said, this is a spoiler-free review as always, I hope you enjoy!
With the end of the year fast approaching, I thought it was time for a lighter article. Stepping away from educational pieces, I decided to write a personal preference blog post. It will give you an insight into what genres appeal to me and my thoughts and advice on each. You can read it with the intent to learn something, but really it’s just my biased ideas and thoughts on things I enjoy, so you might not get much education out of it.
However, I hope you are entertained! Here are my favourite genres and my thoughts on writing them!
