Here are seven thoughts for aspiring writers:

1. Read. A lot. In every genre.

2. Be honestly, fully interested in the people around you. Only by putting yourself in many diverse pairs of shoes can you begin to write fully formed characters.

3. Know that you must be okay with spending a great deal of time alone.

4. Realize that every book you write, no matter how exciting, requires a big commitment and some degree of agony--whether you're a beginning or seasoned writer.

5. But you will get better at it.

6. Study sentence structure. Brush up on all that grammar stuff you learned in school, especially the stuff you glazed over... now it will seem pretty interesting!

7. Get into a regular writer's group, or form one yourself. It will motivate you to produce work (you'll have to bring critique pages, right?), it will improve your writing, and it's a good way to be social and develop your craft at the same time. Plus, you'll make some of the best friends in your life.(less)

“Japanese killed his dad when they bombed Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. That was over three years ago now: December 7th, 1941, two and a half weeks before the worst Christmas of his life. He, Mom, and Sammy were shattered, lost without him. The Japanese had broken his family. The sooner he could fight the enemy, the better. They had to be stopped. He owed it to”
Scott Peters, I Escaped The World's Deadliest Shark Attack

“How was it connected to the scarab thefts?”
