So after reading a book that is extremely well written, I often think to myself How would this writer describe me and my life?
I don't know why I think that.
I just feel like they are using such beautiful language for a simple story.
How would they go about writing my life?
So I am thinking of joining in on NaNoWriMo
It's where you dedicate the whole month of November to writing a novel.
I am not much of a writer but I would like to try my hand at it.
So moving on.
I just finished Paper Towns, and before that I was re-reading Looking for Alaska.
So I just got back on where I left off.
And as I was reading I realized that John has the same underlining ideas in both Alaska and P. Towns.
That everyone is connected.
Now John tells us his work is not autobiographical but I have to say, using the same theme twice, can't be a coincidence.
He describes how we're all connected in Alaska by using Pudge's religions class in which they discuss Buddhism.
And he uses Whitman's Song of Me poem to describe how we're all connected at the same roots.
It's amazing how a lot of it is so true.
I mean obviously John had to derive part of his story from himself.
So I wonder if his interpretation of Whitman's poem in Paper Towns, is through his own interpretation.
So I'm going to read Whitman's Song of Me and develop my own interpretation.
Hopefully I understand it well enough to do so.
I think I'm going to make a list of my favorite Paper Towns quotes.
Or maybe all of my favorite book quotes.
Just all on one page.
Maybe in my BlogSpot.
I don't know.
I'm going now.
