  • Name for the nickname sunny??

    Best answer: As you say, her personality is completely irrelevant to her real name. You already have a nickname that implies a cheerful optimistic personality. For her real name, you need to think about her parents - their ethnicity, personalities, tastes, and hopes for their child's future. That's where people's given names come from!

  • Is this good wrting?

    My bf is has written a book. He's trying to secure an agent to get it published. Here is the blurb and the 1st paragraph: Nestled in the Eastern Kentucky foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Baker County doesn't see much in the way of murder. But when Deputy Nathan Lincoln is the first responder to the the murder of a nine year old boy, the ghosts from his own difficult childhood come back to haunt him.While trying to put away the father for the boy's murder, his own father's reappearance seeking forgiveness for past sins threatens to tear apart not only the case, but his career. CHAP 1 "And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath." Ephesians 6:4 Baker County Deputy Sheriff Nathan Clay Lincoln, Jr. sat in his cruiser and took the opportunity presented by a red light to chug down a knockoff brand Five Hour Energy shot in pessimistic expectation of repelling the stupor that always hit him hard on the first graveyard shift of a swing shift rotation. It was his second shot in three hours, the first doing almost nothing to displace the weariness which seeped in bone deep, pressed into his neck and drew a road map of red lines in his jade-colored eyes.

  • Is this a good way to start a novel?

    There have always been brigands on the roads, you see, and in this region of Calradia particularly. Perhaps the cause lie with the wars on the frontiers, but they appear to becoming bolder.

  • What is your favorite quote by a famous author?

    Best answer: I have a handful of favorites.

  • How can I enjoy reading?

    I have to read these two huge books for a summer assignment, but I just can't keep a book open for more than like 5 minutes. It's just so boring. I wish that I would enjoy reading, but I just can't figure out how. How do i fix this? I know I will have to read a lot next year in college so I need to start reading more now.

  • I need help. Do I write a book? A blog? I have always been told by others to share. I don't know where to start.?

    Best answer: Blog. (It's an unsellable book, the way you describe it)

    Blogger is the easiest platform for blogs to work with. If you have a google/gmail account, you're already part way there.

    Good luck.

  • Is it okay for an English teacher to assign the novel "Wifey" by Judy Blume to a bunch of 10th graders?

    My daughter brought home the book - it's for adults, not teenagers. The summary states that it's about a married woman with wild sex fantasies and her husband seems a little abusive. Even the vocabulary is a little above the average 15/16 year old's level because it's aimed at the adult audience. However, I'd say that most CAN understand the story... whether they're mature enough or not is my concern. My daughter doesn't need to think about a few topics that are discussed in this book at her age (e.g marriage, divorce, nightclubbing and different types of intimacy).

  • I want to write a novel- is it too much like another?

    I have an idea to write a novel and just discovered its similar to another book out there. I didnt know this in the months I have been playing with this idea. Is the theme "travels back in time and meets a handsome stranger in old school England" an overdone theme? My sister says its like Outlander- but Ive never watched or read Outlander... It is genuinely my own plot and a different story- but the core of it is similar.... Is this acceptable in the novel world?

  • Is this a good novel?

    Just for background, Im 17. I started writing a novel about 2 months ago, im currently 80 pages in (~30,000 words) and I am very proud of it so far. The novel begins in the trenches of world war 1 in November 1918, following 18 year old Johann Ernst who has been at the front for half a year. I don't want to run through all of the characters and storyline points rn because it would take a long time, but the big factors from the ww1 part is that his best friend is killed on the night of Nov. 10th, 1918, and after the war ends he returns home completely changed, with most of the people he grew up with or knew dead, along with his home being almost unrecognizable in the face of revolution. The novel will follow weimar era germany, and the problems with the provisional government on the homefront, but will also follow Ernst as he joins the Freikorps and it will dive into the story of the men who fought in the baltic region against communist subversion in German borderlands, despite their government turning their back on them. The novel will focus on themes of blinding patriotism, political violence and the general theme of the chaos of modern warfare. Obviously this is very broad for the actual stroyline, but does it atleast sound interesting? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for the time!

  • Can anybody tell me what do these english sentences from the novel jane eyre mean?

    I am reading the novel "Jane Eyre" by charlotte bronte . Here s the context "John Reed was a schoolboy of fourteen years old; four years older than I, for I was but ten: large and stout for his age, with a dingy and unwholesome skin; thick lineaments in a spacious visage, heavy limbs and large extremities. He gorged himself habitually at table, which made him bilious, and gave him a dim and bleared eye and flabby cheeks. He ought now to have been at school; but his mama had taken him home for a month or two, ‘on account of his delicate health.’ Mr. Miles, the master, affirmed that he would do very well if he had fewer cakes and sweetmeats sent him from home; but the mother’s heart turned from an opinion so harsh, and inclined rather to the more refined idea that John’s sallowness was owing to over-application and, perhaps, to pining after home. " The part that I didn t understand is " 1.but his mama had taken him home for a month or two, ‘on account of his delicate health. 2.Mr. Miles, the master, affirmed that he would do very well if he had fewer cakes and sweetmeats sent him from home; but the mother’s heart turned from an opinion so harsh, and inclined rather to the more refined idea that John’s sallowness was owing to over-application and, perhaps, to pining after home. can anybody please explain please explain what do these two sentences mean?

  • Book Recommendations?

    I want to read the most absurd book. I don't necessarily care if it's a great work of fiction but more an interest to find the most bizarre book out there. I'm looking for a story however, not the likes of Codex Seraphinianus please :D So far the top two is: Knives Taste Better Than Spoons by Harry South The Naked Lunch by William Burroughs I read the latter first as it seemed to pop up everywhere in reccomendations on forums online. I found it a compelling read despite it's odd method of storytelling (The film is alright, also) Knives Taste Better Than Spoons is an unfathomably strange story but a resounding metaphor for addiction, greed and its place in all humans. It mocks just about everyone with it's purposefully misanthropic and immature "humour" but in reality it's subject of ridicule is no one but the ridicule-r If anyone has any other books as odd as these two that aren't well known as I have read a lot of surreal/odd books, then please drop a line! Equally if you haven't read these two books and love weird **** then check them out!
