10 Things I’ve Learned Working In A Library

10 Things I’ve Learned Working In A Library

This September, I’m once again working in the library at my old secondary school. Imagine that: a whole month of gainful employment, the first job I’ve ever had in my life. It seems somewhat miraculous, despite the sad circumstances of me having this job. The new librarian isn’t due to start until the same week I go back to uni, so I’m filling in the gap. This term is a little different to the brief stint I did in July…

Tumblr Likes It

Tumblr Likes It

I have a band. We started out as a trock band, but the first few songs I wrote were about Torchwood, so we decided to branch out. Then I saw Sherlock and realised that I needed to write songs about it and I didn’t want to have a separate band and the others agreed. And basically we ended up becoming  band who write songs about things that Tumblr likes. We’re called Forever Reblogging and we haven’t yet had a rehearsal…

Maggie Stiefvater at Foyles

Maggie Stiefvater at Foyles

Before today, I’d never been to a book event or signing or whatever. Well, that depends how you define book event, because Caroline Lawrence came to our local library when I was about ten and talked about Romans and the fact she was Australian (or something?), and I’ve watched John Green sign books on live feed on YouTube, but I’ve never actually talked to an author and got a book signed and stuff. Except today, because there would be absolutely…

The Library In My Bag

The Library In My Bag

Every Friday, or whenever I remember to, I go to the library. Well, it’s more a case of whenever I have time, because it’s pretty hard to forget to go to the library. (Mind you, the amount of things I’ve failed to do this week would cast strong doubts on the truthfulness of that statement.) Today, I went to the library with my friend Andy, because he says he finds it difficult to spend more than five minutes in a…

Mad Monday: Still Got Legs review

Mad Monday: Still Got Legs review

So, yesterday Chameleon Circuit’s CD, “Still Got Legs” finally arrived. Hooray! Amusingly, to those who know what I’m talking about, the postmarks informed me that the parcel had gone via France. Paris, in fact. It was posted from America – looks like it did a Michael Aranda. Let me tell you about Chameleon Circuit. They are an incredibly nerdy band who write songs about Doctor Who. The name, Chameleon Ciruit, is referring to the part of the TARDIS that is…

Feather Pen Friday: I just finished a novel

Feather Pen Friday: I just finished a novel

Well, the title says it all really, but I did just finish a novel. It still doesn’t have a title (might do a John Green and just not give it a title ’til it’s due to come out) but it’s finished. I started writing it 17th June, so I finished it in just under a month. It’s around 81,000 words, and it’s a first draft – it needs a lot of work. I was taking part in Camp NaNoWriMo, a…

150 Books – Half Way!

150 Books – Half Way!

Those of you that have been around for a while will know that I was aiming to read 150 books in 2011, and (here’s the catch) at least 75 of them had to be ones I hadn’t read before. Well. As someone who loves rereading books, this is rather a challenge. 150 books, easy. But 75 I hadn’t read before? What are you talking about? My overall total is 75 although I’m currently in the middle of 3 more (4…
