For the longest time, I have always been more of a writer than a reader. However, I am taking advice from several of my teachers. The best writers gain their inspiration from reading other books. For some time, I felt like something was missing in my writing. I will do more reading to see if I can find some way to refine my craft more than ever before. Wish me luck!
I started reading Operation: Red Dragon and I am already impressed with what I have read. In the first few pages, I was presented with all kinds of Kaiju. Some were giant reptilian dinosaurs, some were giant scorpions, some slept inside of mountains, some were pterosaurs and insects the size of helicopters, some were leathery sea monsters, and a few were colossal fire-breathing flying beasts that could eclipse the sky. In addition, there have been clues to a mysterious flying craft that was present at each of these Kaiju attacks. It hasn’t even been the first chapter yet and already the plot is thickening fast. I look forward to any new developments as I continue to read.
I have started reading a Kaiju story called Operation: Red Dragon. It takes place in an alternate timeline where Kaiju are real. I look forward to seeing what this story will present and I will keep you updated.
I have posted a new poll in a GoodReads Page I have been managing. Please share your opinion.
While reading Star Wars Aftermath: Empire’s End, I learned the ultimate fate of Jar Jar Binks, the least popular character in Star Wars history. After persuading the Galactic Senate to bestow emergency powers to Supreme Chancellor Palpatine in Attack of the Clones, Jar Jar was banished from his people AGAIN and became an outcast to all of Naboo. The reason for this is because by granting Palpatine emergency powers, Jar Jar inadvertently gave Palpatine the means to transform the Galactic Republic into the Galactic Empire. As a result, everyone on Naboo hated Jar Jar. To get by, Jar Jar spent the remainder of his days in disgrace as a clown and street performer in Naboo’s capital city of Theed. Adults avoided him, but he was very popular with the Naboo children and orphans who sought refuge on Naboo. It is very fitting that everyone ended up hated Jar Jar Binks both in the real world and the Star Wars world.
