Question by Vernan: What does it takes to be an inspirational novel?
I have read ‘The Alchemist’ years back and was disappointed with it because it is anti-climactic. But I was impressed and inspired by ‘The Old Man and the Sea’.

Best answer:

Answer by Krystal
That’s too bad; I was going to suggest The Alchemist.

I think an inspirational book needs the right audience to read it. The Alchemist made me look at things in my life differently that I was already wondering about. I have never heard of “The Old Man and the Sea” but I think I’ll look into it. I can always use some good inspiration.

Question by MILES P: How many of you would actually purchase a fun novel that provided a realistic link between God and UFOS?
I know people have mentioned the Nephilim theory but what if some author took the time to put the theory into a novel that was fun to read but at the same time connected the dots to the UFO mystery. For instance why are the aliens not having regular open briefings with the president or with all the world leaders for that matter. If you are a Christian does this bug you like it does me? How come there’s not a UFO on display and open to public inspection. And finally if there are aliens with extreme science and technology why haven’t they taken over our race by now? (Check out the novel UFOS GOD AND THE DEVIL)

Answer by Egiptian
God is an extraterrestrial too and not all of them a bad, reptillian or grey. Some look like us and have interbred with us like they did in Gen-6:4. This is nothing new because it has been going on for hundreds of thousands of years. This is also the reason why people have so many images of their god that differ from others. These images are representations of the beings who visited them.

This can be found in any religion or ancient culture as the one thing they all share in common.

Question by Sally: Is the iliad a good novel to read for English class in highschool?
On the list of things we need, under the English section it sais we need a novel of our choice. It doesn’t give any other info. Would an enlish teacher be approving of the iliad?

Best answer:

Answer by MavistheMaven
The Iliad is a classic and one that has long been taught by English teachers. The question is, is it a novel? I believe it’s a narrative poem, maybe not long enough to fit the requirement. Check with your English teacher to be sure.

Question by Bob: Can anybody recommend a really good horror/mystery novel?
The Books have to be pretty long

Best answer:

Answer by ILoveMyVampireDaschundFromHell
I personally LOVE anything Stephen King. I know he is known for his horror novels but there are some REALLY wonderful short stories as well. Here is a website that has all of his works and they even tell you about the books. I think EVERYONE should read Hearts in Atlantis.

Question by james s: I’M TRYING TO MAKE A GRAPHIC NOVEL AND I NEED SOOM OPINIONS.a?
Well, I’m 15 years old and I’ve decided to dedicate my life to making comics… Starting with this one! My drawing is pretty decent and I’m gonna make a rough draft in a notebook before I ever make the real thing. As for my story, it starts right in the middle as the main character dies and begins to see flashes of everything up to that point, which is going to take up about 1/2 of the entire comic series. I think of whatever happens after he dies later…

The comic’s genre are action/adventure, SciFi and a little bit of comedy.

Has anyone here ever made and finished their own comic? I know a lot of people can get writers block and give up but I am determined to finish! The main characters are a group of high schoolers with extrodinary powers and abilities, who find themselves on a journey to save the world from bad guys and unsolve all sorts of mysteries, exploiting their pasts and secrets, ect. And stuff like that.

So, what do you think? Can I make a good comic out of this?

Best answer:

Answer by mother_nature_mommy
Go for it! Comic art is a blast. Take plenty of art and writing classes. Make sure to take up plenty of other hobbies too, because it’s very easy to get burned out. Check out Digital Webbing’s web site. They have classifieds for artists looking for work. Plus message boards, and you can get crits. Good luck!

Question by evoxpisces: Help naming a mystery novel sleuth? Opinions?
I’m in the process of writing a mystery novel, and I have most everything outlined and everything, except for one thing: the main character’s name. I’ve read several “how to write mystery novels” guide books, and every single one states it is very important to pick a relevant name to the character’s personality and/or setting of the story. Now this may or may not be true, but I would like one that’s fairly easy to remember, yet obscure, but not so obscure to the point where it feels out of place in the real world. I’ve considered using names like Octavius and Augustus but they just seem so ancient and out of place for a modern day novel. But then again I don’t want to use something ordinary like John or Frank either. Maybe Hector, Felix, Flint…something around there. And for last names I don’t want commonplace like Johnson, Smith, or anything too fanatical like Dragonkin, Firewater, or anything like that. Maybe I’m getting my point across, maybe not. But really I’m looking for opinions on the matter. Thanks to anyone who helps!
Yeah I like the name Octavius, but who nowadays actually has that name? Tristan is okay. Jacques does remind me of a sleuth but one of those old 1900s sleuth. I’m going a modern setting, but thanks for the suggestions :)
Felix Webber does sound good. Although maybe a tad too commonplace. Just because I want it to stand out a bit. I want to avoid the way James Patterson went with Alex Cross…so plain…
Wow Truth as a name does sound cool! I don’t know how well it would fit a male character though but I’ll keep it in mind!

Best answer:

Answer by ✡♥ Katelyn ✡♥ is quizzical ಠ_ಠ
Something French maybe :p I don’t know, but that is just what I think of when I hear sleuth.

Jacques?

Other than that, I think Octavius or Tristan is nice.
