Memory. What is it? Words or is it pictures? I don’t know if people think about that unless they notice exactly what goes through their heads when they remember. If a name is mentioned, does a picture of the person flash through the head? Or a street named in the hometown. Is it accompanied by a landscape?
Writers probably think about that more than other people. Pictures in the head inspire a writer to transcribe them or create them. I…

So, if you're a fan of fantasy, young adult fiction, or writing in general feel free to follow and harass me on this blog, and to buy book... that would be really, really swell and helpful :)

And a part of those assignments are reading lists. Continue

These are the words etched on John Keats’ tombstone. Keats, an English Romantic poet, died at the young age of twenty-five with a keen understanding of life’s transience. But did he choose these words because he was aware of his mortality or because he feared it?
Experiencing the death of both his parents before eighteen, Keats obviously understood the nature of life’s unpredictability and impermanence, providing him with a…
