Welcome to For a Thousand Words, my reading and writing blog! I am excited to share this with all of you.
On this blog, I plan to share my writing experiences including my current projects, encouragement to any other fellow writers out there and any writing tips I think valuable to share! Besides my writing life, though, I would also like to share my love of reading on this blog. Whenever I finish reading a good book that I think everyone has to read, I will share my thoughts and recommendations on it here. After all, as my grandma was telling me just a little while ago, every good writer is a good reader. One of the biggest ways I get better as a writer is by reading, reading and more reading!
To finish off (for now!), I will give you a quote from one of my favorite authors:
“Why do you keep reading a book? Usually to find out what happens. Why do you give up and stop reading it? There may be lots of reasons. But often the answer is you don’t care what happens. So what makes the difference between caring and not caring? The author’s cruelty. And the reader’s sympathy…it takes a mean author to write a good story.” -Gail Carson Levine (author of Ella Enchanted)
