John Steinbeck Biography Out of all the books/ novella we read this year, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck is definitely my favorite. It is very difficult for me to pick up a book and start reading; however, if I enjoy the book I can’t put the book down. I enjoyed the book because it was sort of like cowboys working on the ranch. Also the friendship between George and Leenie is a reminder to always look after a friend how needs your help.
Inspiration Ever since I remember I have loved reading. I would stay up past my curfew reading with my book light, getting yelled out by my mom because I had school the very next day. It all started with my father reading me Dr. Seuss’s “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish” and I would pick up on the words because we would read this book every night, and before I knew it I was reading it to him. I was around 5 at this time, and I remember that because my sister was still in her mother's belly and I would read to her from the outside world. When my sister was born we shared the same bedroom, and I would read to her before I went to bed.
Gonzalo Torres ENC 1101 Paper Towns “What I really want from an adaptation is to feel the feelings I felt while reading the book, right?” (John Green).

I love how she asked me the “small questions” at the beginning of the interview. For example, what your major, what are your plans after graduate etc. By doing this, it made me less nervous and more comfortable to have a one-on-one conversation with her. This is a great way to practice your interview skills before you land a possible interview. I feel like this was a great learning experience for me.
All of her seven siblings, including Louise, were urged to write stories, but she was the only one whose stories the children payed a nickel for. Louise’s mother helped her by, “creating book covers for her daughter 's manuscripts out of woven strips of construction paper and staples” (“Louise Erdrich
In the end Aibileen and Skeeter helped each other. After the book was published Skeeter tells Aibileen that she acquired “a job offer at Harper’s Magazine in New York as a copy editor’s assistant.” (499). She also tells her that she “went to the paper on Friday and quit” and told Mr. Golden that she believed Aibileen should take her spot.
Spider-Man, Batman, Stormtroopers and even The Predator from Alien V.S. Predator movie. We took part and visited each panel seeing the array of astonishing artwork and sketches from people that have utilized their creative talent to make. Meeting new friends, and finding those rare hidden gems of graphic novels we were anticipating to add to our personal collections. I personally waited over two and half hours for a measly two-minute talk and autograph with the current lead writer of Batman Detective Comics Scott Synder; one of the most caring and down to earth individuals I had ever had the chance to meet. Mike had the opportunity to meet to meet his role model, Wil Wheaton from The Big Bang Theory or Star Trek for the first time in person.
As I have mentioned last week, English is one of my weakest subject in school, especially when assignment involved with writing. Most of the time, I usually have my wife edit and proofread my paper before I submit them; that’s only if I remember to ask her. Otherwise, I will end up proofreading and submitting my own paper. According to Carduner (2007), it is nearly impossible for someone to accurately proofread their own writing and be consistently successful because after working long and hard on a paper, one will find little to no grammatical errors.
My most significant writing encounter occurred due to having discovered the series Berserk. Prior to my reading of Berserk I would regularly present the stories I wrote to my father. He would always give me a smile and say it was good, but I could tell it never captivated him, leaving him with a desire to read more. After reading Berserk I wrote a story which for the first time captivated my father. As usual, I presented him with the story I had wrote and he read it.
Many authors achieve to present their main purpose of writing a story by introducing different points of view. They may do this to envelop feelings and tone, or just to present the point more strongly than just by visually stating the events of a story. Anna Quindlin’s “Homeless” and Lauralee Summer’s “Learning Joy from Dogs without Collars” both express what it’s like to have a home, but “Homeless” expresses how a home affects an adult life; “Learning Joy from Dogs without Collars” portrays what a home would mean to Summer when she was a young girl, which is what Summer wanted to signify: a home is a necessity that should be a firm amendment of a childhood; Quindlin wanted to institute that every “homeless” person is just like everybody else, minus a house. In “Homeless”, Anna Quinlin uses third-person omniscient because it helps to identify the emotions and the feelings of Ann.
In the articles that I read from the book "Somebody told me" by Rick Bragg, the characters faced many different issues. Some of the issues were significant while others weren't as important but all of the issues were important. All three articles had three types of issues the people were facing. In the articles, the individuals faced struggles because of the type of people they were, because of the need to provide for their family, and because of loss of a family member.
