What makes a good book? What makes a great book? How does a book inspire a person? How does the writer know how to write an inspiring book? Why does it seem like a writer is writing something just for you as a reader? There are so many questions you can ask about a writer and a book but I feel the answers come from the person who has read the book.
I must say you book Dragonsinger is and awe-inspiring books to me personally. I have always fought against what I am in life because I never felt it was good enough. I thought that what I was to be was destined for me already so there was no point. I was going to fallow in my parents footsteps so I might as well get use to the idea. ...view middle of the document...
That was what I was told over and over but I just couldnâ€™t really believe it. I mean it was only one little poem that wasnâ€™t even that good. I couldnâ€™t believe that my work was what people like to read. I guess that I was like Menolly there as well, my poems, her songs, we didnâ€™t feel them to be great but people thought they truly were.
I had a lot of other things I fought against as well. Like being treated as I felt I should be. I am a girl so lets face it I am suppose to be weaker supposedly but I always hated that so I worked harder then ever to prove myself to be stronger. People I felt only wanted to be my friend for the things that I had, be it my truck, money, or anything else they could think up. That hurt a lot. I wanted to be seen as a person not as what I had or what I was. When I read your book it was like I knew what Menolly was going through the whole time and could relate and it gave me so much hope to know that you could survive through it. I was going to take my own life at one time but I decided that if I worked harder I could also get what was coming to me. As of yet it has not come but who knows maybe someday it will and I can be seen for more then me just like Menolly.
Thank you for writing such a wonderful inspiring book it has changed my life drastically. I learned that is not how we see ourselves but as others see us. People donâ€™t always see us as writers, singers, business men, or even harpers. They see us as people first and then they see our work and they see a totally new thing. We just have to deal with that in life.
