So, I’m writing a book taking place in southern europe. My question is, if I write the book how would the names in other languages translate? I will make up many names for my characters and locations. But should I write them in english since the entire book will be written in english? For example, say I make up…
I think that using other languages can be very good if it is done properly. But to be done properly, I think you should aim for more subtlety and don’t shove it down your readers’ throats.A good author can appeal to readers on a variety of levels. J.K. Rowling is a good example: the story of Harry Potter is a great one that appeals to children with their juvenile minds, but it also appeals to older people because of the overall themes, the way she ties even the most minute details into the ultimate plot turns, and, pertinently, her clever use of language and names.For example, if you’re familiar with the series, you’ll recall Fenrir Greyback. Fenrir isn’t just a creepy-sounding name; it’s an Old Norse word with origins in mythology. Very appropriate, but still subtle and rewarding for the more detail-minded reader.A bad example is Louis Sachar’s use of backwards names in the Wayside School stories. Mrs. Gorf, Mrs. Drazil, etc. You always knew who the bad people were because they’re names were inversions of slimy animals.Incidentally, if you decide to stick with the English, I’d go with something besides “Silversky” for a Spanish character. I’d assume she was Polish.
Any good books you could recommend..

What are good books to read.
Okay I’m 16 years old and really enjoy reading. I read all types of books and really enjoy getting lost in a different world. I’m what assholes would consider a nerd because I like to read. Do y’all have any suggestions because lately I have just been coming up empty
Hm, I am an avid reader as well. So you say you like getting lost in different worlds. May I suggestCall it Courage by Armstrong Sperry: A historical book that takes places on an island in the South Pacific before Europeans came and focuses on a young boy who is cowardly and goes on an adventure to become braver. I’m sure you’ll love it!The Hill of Dreams by Arthur Machen: A semi-autobiographical tale following a young man named Lucian Taylor as he recalls his dreamy childhood living in rural wales and the strange, often surreal experiences and dreams he has while wandering the pastoral countryside. It later focuses on him trying to make a living as a writer in London.Holes by Louis Sachar: A well-written, mysterious, magical novel about a kid named Stanley Yelnats who is sent to Camp Green Lake because he supposedly stole a pair of sneakers from a homeless shelter. Camp Green Lake is a juvenile correctional facility where the kids are forced to dig holes all day in the hot sun. He soon finds out that there is a reason behind it, despite what the camp counselors say, and that it is all tied to the history of Green Lake and Stanley’s own family.Hatchet by Gary Paulsen: A survival story about a teenage boy who is stranded in the Canadian Wilderness after the plane he was flying on crash lands near an isolated lake. Very gripping, engaging, suspenseful novel and a true classic.My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George: A survival story about a boy named Sam Gribley who runs away from his home in New York City to his great-grandfather’s abandoned farm in the Catskills. It focuses on him overcoming many obstacles including a snowstorm, and how he makes a home in a hollowed out tree. It also focuses on his life before leaving for the Catskills. Highly Recommended.The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath by H.P. Lovecraft: A high fantasy story focusing on Randolph Carter who is an adventurous young man who has recurring dreams of a marvelous beautiful city beyond space and longs to go to this wonderful place but cannot find anyone who can show him the way, the novella focuses on him trying to find this beautiful place while voyaging across weird and grotesque lands and kingdoms and meeting bizarre and fantastic creatures and other beings.The Arabian Nights: A collection of stories from the Ancient Middle East that contains such iconic tales as Aladdin and the Magic Lamp, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, and the Seven Voyages of Sinbad the Sailor. You will love it.Also recommend: Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King, Weaveworld by Clive Barker, Coraline by Neil Gaiman, Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift, and the A Series of Unfortunate Events series by Lemony Snicket.
Question about Holes.
I’m having questions about this story.1.Are the yellow spotted lizards real or are they fake?(I’m asking this because i’ve heard that they are not real.)2.If they are not real then why did the director choose them to make the story unrealistic?3.I this story a true story?4.HOw long does it take…
1.) No, they are not real, but there are lizards that resemble the ones in ‘Holes’. And there was a dinosaur that resembled the lizard as well.2.) The director of the movie was just following what Louis Sachar wrote in the book. Many authors take creative liberties when the real-world lacks the enemy/beast/disease/etc. that our story lines call for.3.) Nope.4.) See answers 1-3.
Writers & Readers: Is it okay to have short chapters.
The chapters of my book that I am writing are pretty short-looking. I’m writing in on my laptop’s “Wordpad” program, so it doesn’t exactly tell me how many pages it is or anything. I will probably edit and add more later on, I always do. But are short chapters okay?The people I showed it…
Don’t be discouraged of your book just because some people told you that your chapters are too short. Short chapters isn’t a problem, many famous authors write short chapters in their stories, like Louis Sachar and a lot other writers–they have short chapters in the books they wrote. Authors write short chapters so readers can understand things easily and so diffferent conversations in books can be seperated clearly.
Any good books.
I am 12 y/o and i am very mature and i like to read.What books do you recommend?I am a very open minded person i like a range of things.Please describe the book so i know if its worth reading thanks thanks thanks =]
Hi,Picking books for a 12 year old is quite difficult without being offensive it depends on your intelligence, as let’s face it – it can really vary for 12 year olds.I’ve drawn up two lists, depending on the type of person you are, how mature your reading is already. Both sets are suitable for a young reader but some are just more heavy going.Books that are challenging and openminded without being too demanding/depressing/scary…1.Sophies World2.To Kill a mockingbird3.Jane Eyre4. Of Mice and Men5. The Member of the Wedding6. The lady’s number 1 detective agencyIf your really to try something ‘openminded’ and a bit challenging then;”Cloud Atlas” by David mitchell.”Never let me Go.” Kazou Ishigaro”Memoirs of a Geisha” Arthur Golden”Lord of the Flies” William Golding”The Doors of his face, The Lamps of his Mouth” Roger Zelanzy”The mosquito Coast” Paul Theoreaux”Holes” Louis Sachar”The Curious Incidnet of the Dog in the Night-time.” Mark Haddon.Have a read of the reviews on Amazon or pop to your library. Ideally, read as many as you can, you will gain a lot from the books and you’ll be amazed how good reading can make you write better/think better/ reason better…If you just read one make it To Kill a Mocking Bird. It is a excellent novel that is a plea for racial tolerance, you’re at the perfect age to read it. I guarantee you’ll love it no matter what your taste in books.
How funny do you think this would be in 11th grade.
Writing a book report like this:After reading Holes by Louis Sachar I am full of thoughts. Never before have I thought the thoughts that I am now thinking. And the feelings I am feeling are surely a result of those thoughts.The lead character in Holes was, I truly beieve, the most important person. At the…
Is your assignment to be funny with the report? Because I find that teachers don’t appreciate humor in reports; they feel like you are mocking the assignment. I would try to write a serious report, or your grade may end up as something you aren’t particularly happy about.
