For as long as writers have written books, people have been wanting to ban them. Before the printing press, only a few handwritten copies of each book existed.

Attending this event cleared my ignorance. Non-fiction author and memoirist, Yarrott Benz, spoke with passion about his work, The Bone Bridge, which is a story that he said he believed no one would be able to relate to. At the event, I was drawn to the themes, figurative language, style of writing- the memoir- Benz spoke of and about.

But by Cherry doing this act, It altered the opinion of most greasers and some
E.E. Cummings, born in 1894 and died in 1962, wrote many poems that had unconventional capitalization and punctuation, and also a language style that made the readers look deeper for the meaning of his writing. For example, his name, there was a story going around that E.E. Cummings changed his name to all lowercase because of the way he used capitalization for an enhanced meaning. It turned out that the story was a myth, stated from Marion who was Cummings widow. Norman Friedman even states to his editor/ publisher his opinion, which is that, “My previous book has the capitalized form in the text & the lower case form on jacket, spine, & title page. I lean slightly, however, toward the capitalized form even for the latter places, for I think
However, the use of dialects in Twain’s novel poses the question; does it make the novel less of an achievement? Twain’s use of dialect, which has proved controversial over the years, certainly adds to the vividness of Huckleberry Finn. Because it is sometimes difficult to understand the speech while reading, we are almost forced to read aloud: at the very least, one has to be able to “hear” the voices in one’s own head. Performance is important in this novel, as Tom Sawyer’s follies and the duke and the dauphin’s cons demonstrate. In the world of the novel, the way in which a character converses is closely related to that character’s status in society.
Me too. And we are still looking for the right mysteries for Hallmark Publishing. And we do want to do series. One more thing for authors who are submitting...something that people have misunderstood. Some people think that if Hallmark publishes their book, they 're going to grab the movie rights.

The book The Glass Castle was written by Jeanette Walls, about her childhood, and early adulthood. When the movie came out in August, 2017 it was known that Jeanette Walls has nothing to do with it. She didn’t help write the script, or verify the scenes.
Do you ever suffer from writer 's block? What do you do to combat it? I have a theory that writer’s block strikes authors who suffer from performance anxiety.

Jong 39-40). Instead of countering such attacks on his person–which were in effect based on reader 's assumptions equating the work 's first person narrator with the author because of the novel 's biographical character (cf. Lillios 87)–Miller fortified this impression on the reader by publishing works of the same tone in the following years, among which Tropic of Capricorn and Sexus are the most prominent ones to mention. Among the many critics, Kate Millett turned out to be one of the most durable voices of criticism against Miller.
Independent Reading Reflection At the start of a new quarter, I challenged myself to read more. More is such an elementary word to use, however, in light of its different meanings to me and what it truly encompassed. I set my sights high and challenged myself, in general, to read more complex texts such as nonfiction with a set number of books I hoped to attain knowledge from.

In the article “Shitty First Drafts” by Anne Lemott she discusses how every writer has difficulty putting their ideas on paper because writing should be seen as a process that even the best and famous writers follow. She also talks about how even the best writers don’t just come with ideas and just begin writing on paper and make it as their final draft. Lemott also points out the importance of being able to just write down every thought into the first draft regardless of the structure of the draft and how it makes it easier to start the second draft.

“Shitty First Drafts” definitely caught my attention because of its use of profanity in the title. It was eye catching and chose to read it first over Stephen Kings, “What Writing is”. Lamott’s and King’s ideas on writing are different from one another. King compares writing to telepathy and how pictures in people’s minds are portrayed through writing. While Lamott’s ideas are that writing is a process and it takes many attempts.
