Things Worthy of Being Read

Part 1 of This Post:

“If you have not done things worthy of being written about, at least write things worthy of being read.” –Giacomo Cassanova

This goes along with yesterday's post. Since nothing happens to me, I'll just have to write exciting things instead!

I think this is one reason why I love to write so much. I hope I DO write things worthy of being read. When "Mirror" is finished, I plan to try to get it published; then, I'll know whether or not I succeded.

To succeed, though, I must know what worthy of being read IS, right? What do you think? I know what I think, of course, but I'm not going to be the one buying all my books if they ever get published! You tell me. What makes a book worthy of being read?

Part 2 of This Post:

There are three main reasons why I love to write:
1. I love words.
2. Nothing ever happens to me, so I have to write exciting things for someone else.
3. I'm a control freak, and being a writer is a little like being God for a while.

And three main reasons why I love to read:
1. I love words.
2. Nothing ever happens to me, so I have to have adventures without ever leaving my room.
3. It's interesting to see other people play God for a little while.

So, in conclusion to this short post, I both read and write mainly because I love adventures and words and never have adventures so I have to play God for my characters and write things worthy of being read.

I love that quote. Go carpe your diem!

P.S. Ever noticed that the word "studying" is "student" and "dying" put together? I hate physical science.

I guess I do; and, haha, no, it doesn't. Thanks :D

LOLS! I actually laughed out loud at that! Well, since my name isn't Stu, I guess I'm safe. *grins*

I too love words, and I see what you mean... I don't think anything I write is worth reading though...
I write to create, I write to vent, I write to occupy time, I write to calm myself... I don't think its worth reading >_<

If you publish a book, I will gladly buy it, read it, and tell you what I honestly think of it (Which will probably be something along the lines of amazing)

Kendra Logan said...

*I* think you write things worth reading. I read your blog every time there's a new post!

Thank you! I don't know about amazing though. I'll be happy if it's just worth reading at all! If my book does get published, I'll be sure to tell you! :)

Thanks, both of y'all, for being so encouraging!! :)
