Don’t forget – we’re still looking for guest contributors for the Teen Blog. You can review books, CDs, films or games; or write about anything related to local teens and the library. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested. We’ve already been joined by Zach – the more the merrier.
Post Part One:
It had to happen: novels in email form are so last year. Something to Blog About* by Shana Norris is about Libby Fawcett, who starts a secret blog to vent her frustrations after her life gets complicated and annoying and embarrassing. Libby’s blog entries are interspersed with her first-person narration throughout the book, so you get two perspectives from the same person. See what you think.
Post Part Two:
And on the subject of blogging and writing… do you like writing? Are you interested in being a guest contributor on the teen blog? If you’re keen to have a go at writing about book, library, internet-related topics then email us at email@example.com to begin discussions.
* I’m guessing the title is inspired by the country song ‘Something to Talk About’ by Bonnie Raitt.
So you kind of like this author, right, and you want to, you know, get to know them a bit better…
Some writers have surprisingly good websites and blogs (and some have sites with flashy buttons and bright colours from the nineties…), and reading them can give you a good insight into their writing and what they’re up to and all that.
Here are some good examples:
There you are.
