Went to go find some inspiration for my next short story at Englads largest telescope and picked up a transmission!
It’s hard to maintain that military composure when one’s granny is inspecting!
I love how all the others are like ‘It’s the Queen I need to stand straighter and be more professional than I’ve ever been in my entire life’ and William and Harry are just like ‘lol hi Gran!’
I like to think she tries to make them laugh.
Reblogging because SHE’S ACTUALLY SMILING
Also Harry’s face.

Next up on my Contemporary Literature Module is Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. After reading this article I’m pretty excited about it - though it has been on my personal list for quite a while. Lots of mixed reviews about the film though, anybody seen it yet? What are your thoughts on the article?

She is simply gorgeous. franzen says in the essay I blogged yesterday ‘there is nothing sexier than a reader’
Three books in a week is a bit much even for me! Hella reading list for my second week back at Uni, but at east I have kitty company….
Jonathan Franzens rather fantastic essay on why to bother being an author at all…
The essay charters his depression and dissinterest for the current literary trend and trajectory when trying to write his second novel. The consumer economy, instantaneous media and cultural burnout has led to the death of the great social novel - so how can novels continue to change the world for the better? In the end, hope was restored by a Anthropologist who described the value and significance of the novel to an individuals interior world, rather than the world at large, and how that in turn, puts the wheels in motion for change.
Really enjoyed this piece, I would definitely recommend to those interested in thinking about the future of publishing and literary trends…
First on my uni reading list The Great Gatsby, I’m so excited about this book I picked out this beautiful publication! Only makes sense to do Fitzgerald the luxurious way!
