O'Brien, Frederick: Mystic Isles of the South Seas [Illus]. v1. 05 Aug. 07
You are not allowed to download this unless you have a hammock.I'm a sucker for books on th South Seas. This one looked so interesting - just as a fun read - that I got caught up in it and had to make it available for anyone who might be interested.
Here's what the Author has to say in his introduction:
"This is a simple record of my days and nights, my thoughts and dreams, in the mystic isles of the South Seas, written without authority of science or exactitude of knowledge. These are merely the vivid impressions of my life in Tahiti and Moorea, the merriest, most fascinating world of all the cosmos; of the songs I sang, the dances I danced, the men and women, white and tawny, with whom I was joyous or melancholy; the adventures at sea or on the reef, upon the sapphire lagoon, and on the silver beaches of the most beautiful of tropics."
I hope you enjoy it. (Remember what I told you about that hammock!
“How to Write the First 3 Paragraphs of YOUR Indie Novel” - by Max Waxwelp1) Always write 3 sentences of exposition; 2) now create some dialogue, preferably no more than 2 sentences; and 3) make certain the dialogue is either inane or humorous. Example:
“Bob, I did not know you wore yellow suspenders,” Sally remarked.
“Gee, Sally, those are not suspenders. I am wearing yellow underwear today,” Bob revealed.
The dialogue above will help produce at least 100 more pages of dialogue.
