The Beauty of English.

I once heard someone say there was only one correct way to write and communicate the English language properly. I had to chime in and tell him he was wrong. The English language can as poetic as any other language. One must experiment with it, twist it, sample words and phrases to learn how to use it. There’s no set precedence when it comes to poetic expressions in literature.  When it comes to a poet or author using words to create an imagery vision or emotional content.

I’ve sadly notice the norm today is that every one must writes the same. I find that very boring. I think each poet or author could express their own individuality in their work. My literary art professor called epitome “the cookie cutter syndrome” of literary work and would hand you your paper back and tell you to be more imaginative if you handed in something sounding remotely like what is already out there. She didn’t mind parody of work but it had to be written in your own expression unlike anything you had seen. I wondered, some days what did she do? Watch every program or read every book she thought her students might read or watch?

So I asked her one day did she review every movie or book out there? And she replied. “No, I’ve had kids so I know when you are being lazy.” LOL!

Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    Sadly, some think the way they speak and write is the only way there is. When I review a book I look for originality. That’s important. I do not like to review books five or more books and they all have the same story over and over. It’s hard to write a good review for such books. Just like some thinks adding a lot of sex and violence in a book make a great story but it doesn’t. An experience reviewer can see that these are just fillers. I am one of the first to say a review doesn’t always tell if a book is worth reading. I have read a lot of animosity reviews, Especially on certain online forums and decided to buy the book anyway and sometime they were great and sometimes they weren’t. But an avid reader can tell the difference between someone who actually bought the book and read it than someone who was just angry that day.

    I like it when a author put their own unique style into a work to distinguish it from the crowd. I don’t exactly mean like___creating an alien language I have to constant refer their chart to read. That gets tiresome after a while. Believe it or I have reviewed some books written in a fictional language the author created.
