Better

In this post: Booking Through Thursday and Thursday Thirteen


Ever read a book you thought you could have written better yourself?


I could hardly write my own prayer. If I do not like a book and have difficulty finishing it the book may not be for me. I would leave the writing or rewriting to someone whom the story belongs.

With books at work (academic) - maybe edit, adjust examples, or illustrate a concept to fit needs of certain learners.  But then writing it better? I might as well write another book entirely. 


Thursday 13: March Celebrations



March 21st is full, isn't it? I didn't know most of these celebrations but I'm glad to find a couple relevant to me, like #4 and 8. Which ones interest you?

3. National Teenager Day
4. National Single Parents Day
5. World Down Syndrome Day
6. National Flower Day
7. Twitter Day

  2. I agree with your sentiment that if I'm going to re-write something I might as well just write another story. I have a similar answer on my BTT:

  4. I'm not a writer, but there are times when I'd like to be an editor.

  12. I wonder how they celebrate "Fragrance Day"...

    But I would choose no. 6 National Flower Day - I am a frustrated gardener and I would love to see flowers in full bloom during this festivity

  15. Like you I'd probably put down a book I don't like after two pages ^_^ I would want to be a proofreader somehow but my own writing needs to be edited and proofread.lol. I find number 1 interesting though that's doable it's not gonna be in this system of things.
