The weirdness

My mum and I were just talking about how we hosted a Halloween Party two years ago. We definitely didn’t last year (haha) so it was the year before.

We were making fun of ourselves, because we had a wall of pictures of people who were real scary people and not as scary, so like Casper the Friendly. We run a test to see if they knew who was who. We thought that they were really easy to get. Everyone got the cartoon/animated type characters. But apart from Ted Bundy, they didn’t get the rest.

My mum and I had a “serious” talk with ourselves. Are we too addicted to crime, serial killers?

… Nah, it’s everyone else.

Do you have any weird interests or hobbies?

Help!

I have done something that is really frightening to me, but at the same time, is rather exciting and I don’t even know what if it’s going to happen…Or what I even have to offer!

At my work place it has slowed right down, right down that, at the moment, we are not even getting one day a week. So I am trying to find something else at the moment. One of things that I have fallen back too is volunteering in the area of work that I REALLY want to work in…Library work.

When I have gotten myself into though, I  AM so nervous and haven’t done nothing like this before. They don’t have any room for library Volunteers, but they were thinking of making a gardening, technology and writing club…I said that I’d be interested in the Writing Club and now I don’t know why!

What do I know about writing?

I mean, I write this Blog…But I am not an expert by any means! I don’t even know if it’s really going to happen…At the same time though, I REALLY want to do it as well!. It excites me as well, but what do I know about any of this?

Where do I go? Is there a site I could too? Is this a sign that I should be writing more?! Start actually “publishing” and really working on the stories that I write?

This week Bookmark Chronicles would like to know:

How often do you read the description of a book before you read it?

I’m feeling generous today so you have five options:

Always – Almost Always – Sometimes – Almost Never – Never

I would have to go with almost always. It does depend for me though, if it’s a series I’ve been interested or an author that I love, I will hardly every read the descriptions of a book before I’ve read it. In fact, I probably read it afterwards to see if it matches the descriptions. If you can’t describe something simply, you don’t understand it.

The only time I will really read a description is if I’ve never read a book by the author, or have never read the series before. The reason I said almost always is because I always ask for books that I know I want for presents, for Birthday, Christmas etc. So I usually am reading a description because I’m in a bookstore seeing what the book, which I know nothing about, what it may be about…Or even if the book is on sale, does it look interesting?
