Feature and Follow - Change a Book?

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

Question of the Week: Change the plot of a book! Go ahead! Say what you wish would have happened!

Honestly, it is not in me to change another author's work. I might rewrite the entire thing from a different perspective or with a different emphasis, but then it becomes a new story.

Speaking of a new story, I am ready for SPRING!

Winter Lament

Icy wind buffets the windows,
Whistles through still bare branches
While the groundhog
Smugly smiles to himself
Deep in his dark burrow.
Faith and begorrah!
Who would have thought
That the shadow-averse
Rodent would be right.

  1. Hopping through. Love the poem, especially as I just spent an hour shoveling 4-5 inches of snow off of my gigantic driveway and sidewalks.

  3. It becomes a new story, but it is now YOUR story. I think we all have various versions of a single book. :)

  6. There are a few books where I've wondered why the author went with a certain POV when after reading, I think another POV would have worked out the emotions much better...maybe that's why many authors decide to do a follow up book with the other POV? But then the moments are kind of lost and it's really not the same...

    Great poem! I'm ready for spring too!!
