So, here’s the thing about writing about books: It’s that I haven’t read as many at this point in my life as I think I should have…I don’t know. It seems that if I have any aspiration of being a writer, I should have read a wide range of books by now, but then again, I’m still young, and I have a whole three months of sweet, sweet summer to read, and that’s beautiful.
Topic: What kinds of published books would you like to see more of?
3. Homeless people, AKA Hobos. You know, people living on the streets of New York City, or Austin TX; I’ve truthfully NEVER read a book about a homeless person, let alone a homeless teenager living on the streets. Sure, I guess Brian in Hatchet is homeless, but he just trying to survive in the wild, not on the streets of some of the grandest, beautiful cities in the world, like NYC. It would be interesting to me to see a world of success, passion, excitement, crime, malice, and injustice from the eyes of a homeless person. How they live, where, what they go through in the winter, in the hottest of summers. A lot of things can happen to homeless people. From the encounters I have heard from, people tell me some of these homeless people begin to lose their minds a little bit. I don’t mean to sound rude or crass, but being homeless can be a real detriment to the mind. It’s just a topic I have never really seen in published books.
4. Toddlers. These types of books would be pretty difficult to write to the core, because so few of us really remember what we were like as toddlers; and sure you can search up all of the scientific studies done on toddler’s and their brains, but nothing is like actually describing seeing the entire world as a toddler, or to be even more extreme, a baby. But then again, vocabulary is VERY limited at that age… I don’t know. Whenever I look into the eyes of a growing toddler or baby, and I see that insane expression of wonder whenever these little humans experience something new, I’m like, “Man, what the heck must that baby human be thinking?!” The expanding mind is a crazy thing.
Yep, so I guess that it for now. This was a really awesome topic and awesome blog chain. May the force be with you all young Padawans…but especially me because my Chemistry exam will be horrible. I mean the worst. The worst.
ANYWAYS, here’s the rest of the list of some freaking awesome writers, because writing, simply said, is awesome:
