The anninuki r commin!!!!
One.. There was a big flood in the past.Two..the "gods" told someone it was comming.
Who were these gods?
I am reading a book "Advice to Writers: A Compendium of Quotes, Anecdotes, and Writerly Wisdom from a Dazzling Array of Literary Lights" (http://www.amazon.com/Advice-Writers-Compendium-Anecdotes-Writerly/dp/0679763414) and there is a quote that was apropos for this thread in light of recent discussion:
"I remember [John] Gardner telling me, "Read all the Faulkner you can get your hands on, and then read all the Hemingway to clean the Faulkner out of your system."
I really cant read fauk very long...im just not that interested in the southI grew up there...i already know this junk.
they both write about things that interest me very little...their styles and words are great..subject matter? not so much for me.
on the flood subject..THAT interests meGods an where they come fromthe ruins off the coast of india (dwarka) , japan , turkey(Göbekli Tepe)woohoo!
All gods come from the same place, the mind of man.
I was reading an apologist's website and they claimed that the bible flood story didn't come from Gligamesh because the two stories only have "superficial" similarities.
Yeah, right. Gods order the end of civilization by flood and one man is saved because he obeys the god's and builds an ark and then it comes to rest on a mountain on he sends birds out several times until the waters subside.
that WAS science fiction just a few years ago
this new book im reading is fantastic..ill be finished today
My first 2 books were both 500 page thick hard science novels..hard to get through at many points..This one is an easy funny read...but the ideas are as deep as the other two.
Don't normaly read books about war , but this one ranks with the Forever War..and Starship Troopers as far as entertaining plus cool new science.
Scalzi writes very much like Robert Heinlein.
While am i condemned for being a depressed suicidal addict ...your favorite writers are depressed addicts , who commited suicide?
thought for the day.
And they redeemed theselves by creating great art. You better get to writing because you are running out of time.
Thought for the day.
Bummer.I too have created great art.Just not in the writing field.
Im almost done with this book..
"While am i condemned for being a depressed suicidal addict ...your favorite writers are depressed addicts , who commited suicide?"
- Wow! You're just like a tortured artist... without the art.
If you could spell you might be a writer.
