Books

Him from Powerpuffgirls
      Today I went to the library and got a bunch of new books that I had never read before. I decided to become a more active reader because I heard that reading different kinds of books helps you to become a more interesting writer. Right now I am writing a novel about demons and other hell related stuff so a lot of what I'm reading has to do with the devil. I try to switch off from heavy material to lighter reading material when I read a lot of books but what I am writing about demands that I read a lot of heavier stuff. Each writer who writes about the devil seems to have their own interpretation of him which I find very interesting. The devil is definitely a very obvious choice for a villain, but unfortunately I find that does not make him an easy villain to write for. It's difficult to give your own original interpretation to a character that's been done a million times. I definitely have my work cut out for me with this novel I'm doing but hopefully the final product will make it all worth it in the end.

  1. Awesome. Would like to know which books you got and your opinions about them when you're done reading.

    Also looking forward to learning more about your book (no spoilers, please!). It sounds interesting.
