Reading has always been a bit of a slog for me since high school, but thanks to my stint working at @mcgillu, I've been offered an unparalleled opportunity to pick it up. I still struggle to find time to read, but I just finished this little gem and I highly recommend it. It's about the incredible nature of fig trees and all they have done and continue to do to support life on Earth. I liken the book to a textual version of a Planet Earth episode: beautifully narrated, awe-inspiring, and quite possibly most importantly for today's pace of life, digestible. It's also the first @unbounders book I've ever read. If you don't know what Unbound is, I also recommend checking it out. It's like Indiegogo for books, where readers can support writers with a greater share of their monetary contributions going directly to the authors they choose to back. I am grateful to all those who have contributed to what has been a delightful reading experience - stumbling onto @shanahanmike's project was not just a matter of luck: it was made possible by the donors who funded his work (and of course, all of the researchers who inspired him to pursue writing and all the other circumstances that led to the fruition of this book). 📚 #figtrees #ficus #goodreads

Lovely to see ‘Her Last Lie’ mentioned in the June issue of Hertfordshire Life. #hitchin #letchworth #thriller #books #goodreads #bookstagram #bookshelf #authorofinstagram #booklife

As the cover says ( Reading this ) book is like curling up on a window seat with an old friend....the comfort is almost instant. My favourite book of Ruskin Bond is A book of simple living, this book is something very simple yet very heart touching, There are so many favourite quotes inside the book written by the author from his own life experience that this one is the book which I read when I feel the need of some inspiration in life. My personal favourite quote inside the book is If an straw can tickle a man than it is an instrument of happiness ❤️ In the book it says about a lady who waters as plant even when it rains, and she says plants are used to me not the rain in reply, such is the loveliness of the innocent stories in the book Tagging @fabulus1710 @divine_shruti which is your favourite Ruskin Bond book ? #ruskinbond #goodreadswithaview #readersofinstagram #goodreads #bookshelf #igreads #igblogger #bookblogger #igfeaturesyou #booksporn #bookishfeatures #bookish #bookfeaturepage #bibliophile

This finished this quick read. Or listen rather. Definitely worth it. Sometimes we need things to ground us, or just like a lil mental boost. Word to @cthagod and @nipseyhussle for the recommendation. #bookclub #goodreads #upliftment #mental #stability #ilikedit #knowledge #is #control #omg #othasydemusicgroup

Le storie che scriviamo ci appartengono ancora prima di venire alla luce. Così è stato per "Il profumo del mosto e dei ricordi", che parla della mia terra, del mio legame per essa e dell'affetto per un nonno che non ho mai conosciuto. . . ➡️ Facebook profile/fanpage: Alessia Coppola ➡️ Instagram photography: with_my_eyes84 ➡️Blog: Anima d'inchiostro ➡️Twitter: Alessia Coppola ➡️Pinterest: Alessia Coppola ➡️G+:Alessia Coppola ➡️Youtube: Alessia Coppola . . #Reading #BookLovers #BookAddict #Books #BookPhotography #GoodReads #WomensFiction #Booktag #PopBooks #bookstagram #BookAddict #newtoncompton #book #ioleggoperché  #writer #libro #narrativaitaliana #picsoftheday #instalibri #bookoftheday #bookslove #bookstagram #writing #bookgram #bookphoto #leggere #literature #romanzo #instalike #salento

Here are two ways to make your characters more layered. By adding more layers to your characters they become more complex and therefore more alive and it will be more easy to make your story character driven. Showing their attitude towards life is a great way to add another layer to your character's complexity. There are many ways to do so, but I will just focus on two here to get you started: 1. In action. Show their approach to life in some kind of action. Like if a character is always positive, always sees the upside to things, create a situation that shows their attitude towards life. Like the character not getting the job, but positively moving on and saying: That’s alright, it wasn’t supposed to be, there might be something better waiting around the corner for me. 2. Verbally. Let the character state it in a condensed speech at some point early on in your script. But beware this is a tricky one. It might just be alright to just say it out loud, if the circumstances allow for it, like the character standing beside a death bed and talking to some other character about life, but other than that stating it outright might feel forced and somewhat dull. In order to avoid this from happening I suggest you hide the attitude behind metaphors or symbolism. Here’s an example: Jenny: I’d say lemon is my favorite fruit. I love the sweetness of it, that is immediately overtaken by a sour note, but still leaves you with the desire to want more. Just the perfect combination, don’t you think? Here, Jenny is giving us a glance at what her attitude towards life is, without blurting it out straight on. #writing #screenwriting #screenwriter #filmmaker #filmmaking #writersnetwork #quote #stories #spilledink📝 #writerslife #wordcount #writersedit #wordsmithing #amwriting #goodreads #igwriters #publishing #publishers #wordart #creativity #writerssociety #artsy #instaquote #poetic #life

If you have already read ‘The Witches’ by #roalddahl this could be your next port of call. I read this to a #year4 class as our #classbook and they loved it! It’s gripping but with lots of humour too and definitely holds the readers attention. 👍 💥WARNING💥 It is quite scary! #granny #scarystories #anthonyhorowitz #kidslit #goodreads #childrensbooks
