Summer Update

It's been a summer full of adventure on my part – and not just in the books I've been reading, though trust me, there's been plenty there as well. I spent a week and a half in Sweden. I greatly enjoyed Uppsala and Stockholm, and seeing the crown princess' wedding procession. I then spent 4 weeks working at camps, and then finally got back to home sweet home. As such, I can now stretch my fingers, and get back to shredding up some literature! So far over my summer I have read...

    • Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken

    • Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow by Orson Scott Card
    • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
    • The Sword of Truth, Phantom, and Chainfire by Terry Goodkind
    • Epic by Conor Kostick
    • The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

    • and others...
Currently I am reading a Nicholas Sparks novel and The Reader. I hope to enjoy/hate these enough to be able to write a review. As such, I am working on a positive shredding – Ender's Game. I am also working on The Sword of Truth, and an either/or review: The Bell Jar. Gotta love Sylvia Plath, but she can also be a bit... well, you'll see.

I'll leave you with a quick little blurb about my DeviantArt Group about the art of publishing. It's called Publish-Write. If you are a writer, reader, artist, or art enthusiast, you need to check out, which is a wonderful site for sharing and appreciating art. I have an account; on deviantArt I am Prosaic-Scriptor.

The group is namely about answering questions people have about publishing – you can join either to pose questions or answer them, it doesn't matter. We will hold weekly FAQ sessions, and other such things to help edit, revise, and review work so it could be published. We're helping people through the publishing process with tutorials and advice. :)

If you have any interest in joining, please do, and I desperately need administrator help/moderator help. It's a hard job to tackle on my own.

Well, I'll have a review up soon – I hope you can wait a little while. I've been working on a nice snarky shredding; you will definitely enjoy, I'm sure.
