I have finally handed in my thesis for my MA in Creative Writing! I have now written the first 5 chapters of my novel, and I know I can't leave it there. As soon as I have got myself back together, I will get on and get the rest of the manuscript done and who knows, I might even be lucky enough to get it published.Anyway, I wanted to set up a swap so everyone can help me celebrate.

For this swap you need to read one book which has something to do with your favourite subject from school, college or university. It can be either fiction or non-fiction and you can decide how it relates. Here are some examples:

  • If you loved psychology, you could read a psychological thriller
  • If you loved home economics, you could read something like Chocolat, or a cook book, or a travel book which talks a lot about food.
  • If you loved art, you could read a biography of an artist, or a murder mystery where art plays a big role (yes, I was thinking of something like The Da Vinci Code, but it could be anything like that)
  • If your favourite was PE or games or sports or whatever they called it where you are from, you could read a book about a sport or where sport plays a major role.
  • If you loved English, you could go back and read something you had to read at school - Catcher in the Rye? Lord of the Flies?

And if you didn't love anything at school, and your favourite thing to do was hide out with your boyfriend behind the bike sheds, how about a romance novel?

Once you have read your book, write to your partner and explain how this book relates to your subject and tell them why you loved that subject so much. These two things are essential in your letter, but you could also tell them
* what the book was about
* whether you enjoyed it as much as you enjoyed the subject when you studied it.
* how this subject has affected your later life
* whether your love of this subject has affected the kind of thing you read now.

Please write a minimum of two pages if handwritten, or one page if typed. And most of all, enjoy! I know I will!

How neat, and congrats!! :) I hated H.S. My favorite thing was my weekends, going to a local radio station and hanging out with the college crowd. :)

I could think of a few books you could read for that then! I have to admit, High School wasn't my favourite place to be either, although I did love the actual studying - as evidenced by the fact I can't seem to stop doing it!
