TODAY’S BREW: Hot coffee that will add to my Sweat Level: Midnight
I go off on this tangent pretty often, but it’s all about timing, so here we are. Enjoy my ranting list of things I’d like to shout from my roof if the sun weren’t so scorchingly evil.
IF YOU THINK I’M NOT PSYCHED FOR THE RELEASE OF STEPHANIE MEYERS’ MIDNIGHT SUN, THEN YOU DON’T KNOW ME.
If you think a reader is vapid for loving the series, perhaps you should think about what makes you so fucking special.
READ WHAT YOU WANT. BE WHO YOU WANT. LIKE WHAT YOU LIKE, UNAPOLOGETICALLY. YOU CAN WEAR A MASK AND NOT BE A SHEEP, AND YOU CAN READ A HISTORICALLY WORLDWIDE-SELLING BOOK SERIES THAT APPARENTLY NOBODY LIKES AND STILL BE AN INDIVIDUAL.
Reading “bad” books does not create “bad writers.” Being sucked into a vacuum of a world despite what could be considered “bad writing” by “experts” could be argued is the epitome of great writing. A writer who analyzes why a story sucked them in regardless of the poor writing is a writer who works.
ANY READING IS WORTHWHILE READING.
GIRL BOOKS DON’T EXIST.
ART CAN’T BE WRONG.
WHO ARE YOU TO CRITICIZE WHAT OTHER PEOPLE FIND JOY IN?
Stephanie Meyer has changed the face and significance of Young Adult books. What did you do today?
A) Read what the fuck you want. B) Who even are you C) Thinking you’re too good for someone else’s hard work makes you a dick. D) She’s doing something right, ain’t she, folks?
Book Arrogance (BA) is a widespread disease affecting millions of jerks worldwide. If you or someone you have to listen to prattle on about how stupid vampires are suffer from BA, seek help at Writers Reading Over Not Good (W.R.O.N.G.) or Most Energy-Negative (M.E.N.)
If you’ve been having a hard time finding a book you like, ask yourself these questions:
- Do you often tell people about the book you’ve been planning to write?
- Do friends often say, “I hear ya”?
- Are you “holding out for a management position”?
- When others succeed do you often say, “Whatever”?
- Do you consistently make money for someone else doing a job you hate?
Researching Illustrious Charismatic Humans (R.I.C.H.) can help.
If you like vampires, an iconic figure in literature and pop culture, do go ahead and buy MIDNIGHT SUN. I would personally love it if you’d pick up my very own vampire books, RUNNING HOME and RUNNING AWAY, and then also write your own because I’d like to read it.
