CHRIS COLFER: WRITING, ACTING 'JUST TWO FORMS OF STORYTELLING'

Some of you may know this talented gentleman more for his onscreen work, particularly for his portrayal of Kurt Hummel on Glee. But Colfer says he’s always been a writer: “I have an actor hat and an author hat. “I consider acting and writing just forms of storytelling, and that really is what I’m addicted to. I love doing both.”

Colfer, 26, is appearing at Friends’ Central School in Wynnewood on Wednesday, July 13. The evening will feature a reading, a Q&A between Colfer and the audience, a TLOS trivia game, a costume contest, and prizes.

“I think people might be surprised to know I’ve been writing for longer than I’ve been performing,” he says. “As a little kid, I got bit by the writing and acting bugs at the same time.” He describes teachers who supported his love of writing by letting him read his stories out loud to the class. “It’s in my blood,” he says.

My usual source for Land of Stories is lagging: usually they atleast have it shipping ready by the time of the official release date but now it's still on the watch list. :angry:

Well I can enjoy the Colferpalooza for the next two weeks.

I got my book yesterday and I am loving it. Already on Chapter Nine. Smile 

It is a lot different to the others, which I think is a good thing.

I was surprised that I would get it on the 12th. Shocked 

Will be pre-ordering from this book store from now on for the other books.

I've still not got my books and I ordered from two different sources to see which came first! I pre ordered months ago, I've just received an updated delivery date as the 21st from one supplier and so far no news from the other which just says waiting publication! I'm not a happy bunny

Same here.
I read about one chapter a day to relax, usually in bed right before I go to sleep.


Spoiler:
What I like about TLoS5 is that the environments are new, so the new characters Alex and Conner meet are different but at the same time also very familiar because they are based on 'old' characters.
