In Sophie's World, Sophie Amundsen receives a note in her mailbox asking: "Who are you?" The narrator says,
"She had no idea. She was Sophie Amundsen, of course, but who was that? She had not really figured that out--yet."
Question: Have you ever had thoughts about this? Who are you? What makes you "you"? If you haven't thought about it, think about it now! How do you go about answering that question?

Aria (xooki) | 2 comments In 'Incarceron', the prison Incarceron was built to be a paradise for prisoners and such but it all somehow went wrong and now it's a violent and survival free for all. So my question is: Have you ever made something with good intentions but then it ended up being used for bad things? Or is there something you know of or heard of that was planned to be used for good things but it ended up being used for bad?

Jwinas40 | 2 comments In "Killing Lincoln," the author is describing the current state of the civil war. It sounds like the confederates are in bad shape. My question is why doesn't general Lee surrender to Grant?

Angela Marino (anmideas) | 2 comments In The Hobbit Bilbo has just met Smaug and had a discussion with the dragon. He revealed some details of their adventure and after he returned to the dwarves Bilbo "was now regretting some of the things he said to the dragon, and was not eager to repeat them." My question is have you ever been in a position where you may have revealed a little too much to someone you can't really trust?

Diana Dipretoro | 2 comments In my book Fat Vampire, it shows the perspective of two characters that have nothing to do with each other; Sejal and Doug. So far the reader has learned both of their major conflicts; Doug wants a girlfriend Sejal wants the Internet. Do you think this is foreshadowing their paths crossing and possibly a relationship?

However, to keep the last of his team safe, he must detonate two mini nukes that he is carrying to close the pathway and keep them safe.

Rhiannon | 3 comments In "Letters to Julia" the main character, Elizabeth, is an aspirering writer and is writting letters back and forth with a big time book publisher. Although the publisher seems very interested in Elizabeth's writing, she is very doubtful in herself, and often chooses to re-write her material. do you think Elizabeth will be able to make it in the writing buisness?
