Hey, onision, I figured that since the very first sentence that your wrote has three or four “I"s in it, that this may help you. Same with the "show, don’t tell” thing. But… since you take any actual criticism with a grain of salt, you’ll prob'ly ignore this.

And, really, there are a multitude of writing blogs and programs and what have you out there that you can follow and actually learn from. Here, let me give you a list (since I appear to be a habitual list maker, though there are blogs that I follow that are missing from this list, I will add them at another time) and, having this list, there should be no excuse why you can’t be a better fucking writer, Gerg:

So, um….the roomie was casually scrolling through Facebook when I hear “OH. My. God.” And when I ask her what’s up she shows me this….a post mr. Markus Zusak shared on his Facebook of MY BOOK SCULPTURE of “The Book Thief.”

We’ve been sitting on the couch screaming and sobbing for like ten minutes.

I want to call my mother but it’s 1am and she’s SLEEPING. Who does that?!

Today, overall, was a pretty good day :) Best part- earlier this evening, I got to meet Markus Zusak, the author of my favorite book- The Book Thief!

We got there pretty early and thus were able to sit second row center for the talk and discussion. It was awesome!

He spoke about the book, was interviewed about the book (moderated by an LA journalist, if memory serves correctly) and answered some audience questions. He had some really good answers, and was a great public speaker: he was funny, articulate, and very thoughtful with his answers. Also- I like accents (a lot) so his Australian accent was quite pleasing to me and added a wee bit more to the whole thing.

We, the audience, were lucky in that we got to see two short clips from the upcoming film, which is scheduled for release in September. Though I’m terribly nervous about the movie and how it will be vs the book etc, I enjoyed what I saw, for the most part.

The book he signed for me is one of my 5 copies; I also own multiple audiobook copies on various electronic devices. This particular copy is a first (American) edition. It’s my “top shelf book,” my favorite, and before tonight it had only left my house once (when I lent it to a fellow bibliophile, C, whom I knew would take good care of it).

This copy had also been previously signed by Zusak, in the form of a small doodle of a man, and the date it was signed, but no actual signature of his name. He added to it tonight, and he added more than a simple signature, much to my delight.

Also, for someone who has spent the last hour ceaselessly signing books while engaging in conversation with eager fans and had every right to be quick and unsociable, he was very nice.

It took me about 20 minutes post-signing to calm down and rid myself of the twitchy adrenaline feeling. I thought I might have been overzealous or weird but I was told by C that I was not. Which is good. Though I could feel myself shaking a lot, in my fingers and feet and a little in my voice. And I think I repeated myself a lot. Oh well. I was excited and hopefully Markus enjoyed that, as it was over his book, so that’s that.

I’m still super excited about it all (I’m sitting in my car writing this because I’m too excited to wait until I get inside) but thankfully my hands aren’t shaking anymore. Which is good, because I will have to unlock my front door in about 30 seconds and will need semi-steady hands.

I realise that nothing belongs to her anymore and she belongs to everything. She cries, momentarily, as she watches. She allows herself at least that. There are tears on her face and icecream on her lips.
It doesn’t taste like it used to.
—  Markus Zusak ‘I Am The Messenger’

Mãos Que Aplaudem.


- Qual é a do som de mãos aplaudindo? - pergunto.
O cachorro continua a andar, mas não me importo. Apenas continuo a falar.
- Por que ele parece um mar de som, como ondas quebrando em cima da gente? Por que faz a maré virar dentro de nós?
Agora só penso nisso.
Talvez seja porque é uma das coisas mais nobres que os seres humanos fazem com as mãos.
Digo, os seres humanos cerram as mãos em punhos. Usam-nas para ferir uns aos outros e para roubar coisas.
Quando os humanos batem palmas, é o único momento em que se unem para aplaudir outros seres humanos.
Acho que aplausos existem para conservar coisas.
- Eles mantêm unidos os momentos a serem lembrados - comento, baixinho.

The Book Thief - Markus Zusak

I just finished the book thief (i have read it before, just ages ago) and tears were continually leaking out of my eyes throughout the two last chapters and the epilogue and they are still falling. I’d like to thank Markus Zusak though for writing this amazing book and Twentieth Century Fox for deciding to create a movie based on it, giving me yet another reason to re-read it.
Markus if you see this, i have two questions for you.

When Leisel moved to Sydney in her later year, what part of Sydney was it and which street?

Also what happened to all the other characters in the end? What happened to Hans Junior and Trudy Hubermann, Alex Steiner, Ilsa Hermann and Arthur Berg?

Thanks again :)

So for like, a year now, I tried to convince my mom to read “The book thief”. I told her that it was a great story narrated by death that was going on during the world war 2 but she tought it was an horror story. When I learned that there was going to be a movie, I went on and on about how I wanted to see it the first day it would come out.

Since she knew I was crazy about this story, when she learned that it was out on dvd, we immediatly went to Wal-Mart and bought it. We just finished it.

Me: So, did you like it?

Mom: …yes…

Me: Are you okay?

Mom: Yes…

Me: But, like, the book is a hundred times better *insert rant here*

Mom: Do you… HAVE it?

Me: Yup. Do you… Wanna read it?

Mom: … Yes please

Mission accomplished :D
