Really Me ~ Reading & Writing

Instead of digging through the old stuff, I’m going with one of Rory, A Guy Called Bloke’s question thingies.


What are you reading then?

I went to the library to pick up a couple books I had requested and found another one that looked good too.

So, I am currently reading “Hitting A Straight Lick With A Crooked Stick” by Zora Neale Hurston. It’s a new collection of her short stories with a bunch of new ‘found’ stories. I’ve read most of her work before and loved it, so I had to grab this and borrow it when I saw it.

After that, I will be reading “The Toll” by Neal Shusterman. It’s the third book in his Scythe series. They are YA books but very cool. There are a lot of authors typed as YA that write great stories.

The last book I borrowed is “The Girl Who Lived Twice” by David Lagercrantz. It’s the latest in the Lisbeth, Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series.

Also, blogs… lots of blogs.


What prompts you to respond to prompts?

I usually do a prompt when it looks like something fun or because it’s easy and I’m lazy.

I don’t write fiction or poetry. I can do a few lines of rhyming, but that’s it. Mostly, I write about all my day to day life and the weird stuff that bounces around in my headspace.


What is your favoured style of writing genre?

I like answering questions, it’s easy. I don’t really have a genre. I sit down with my little android phone and tap out whatever comes tumbling out. Imagine how wordy I would get if I had an actual computer. Ben still breaks things too often to waste money on one.

I write the same way I speak, so I hope you can ‘hear’ my ‘voice’s when you read my posts (or comments). I’m just as wordy and wacky in person.


How about you, what are you reading? What do you like to write about?
