Everlark Tuesday


Seventeen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, from the poor side of town, writes a YA dystopian fantasy about kids fighting each other to the death, and wins a scholarship to a private academy.

Her book focuses on a pair of lovers: a talented archer and the boy whose family is in the restaurant business. The fictional lovers are Allium and Barley. Never thinking the book would see the light of day, Katniss bases Allium on herself, and Barley on her secret crush, Peeta Mellark (LOL ROFL LMAO)

The book is picked up by a big New York publishing house.

Her uncle Haymitch has a lawyer-friend named Chaff who goes over the book contract, and Katniss has her first meeting with a publishing executive:

The man who sat with us this time was older, a jolly man with thinning grey hair. He expressed some concern about publishing under my real name and I jumped at the opportunity to use a pseudonym. Which is how I became EFFIE TRINKET. I thought for sure the publishing rep would balk at such a crazy name but he didn’t bat an eye. I guess with a name like Plutarch he just didn’t find my choice strange.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.


Quote of the Day: Reality vs. Fantasy

The American Dream: A sudden transformation will bring a total change in one’s fortunes . . .  from poor to rich, sickness to health, misery to ecstasy . . .

The American Dream is just that: a dream, one that nevertheless exerts a powerful hold on the imagination of millions, Americans and non-Americans alike.

  • If you want to tell lies, that will be believed. Don’t tell the truth, that won’t.

— Emperor Ieyasu Tokugawa

  • Promise a great and total change — from poor to rich, sickness to health, misery to ecstasy, and you will have followers.

— Robert Greene, The 48 Laws of Power

As Robert Greene tells it, “Change is slow and gradual. It requires hard work, a bit of luck, a fair amount of self-sacrifice, and a lot of patience.”

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
