UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE CHAPTER ONE : STREAKING ON A GO-KART

Chapter One: Streaking on a Go-Kart

There are few greater “treasures” in the high school world than a detention slip, and on Monday May 5 one was graciously bestowed to Virginia Barnes. Virginia blankly stared at the crisp mustard colored paper that Mr. Venice slapped on her desk. As she began to read its contents he trudged back over to his podium and continued to read…

Edits

  I love to write. I’ve written a draft of a book that I am continually working on and making better but now I am helping someone else with their work! I’m quite excited to be a sort of ‘editor’ for someone. It’s really quite fun. The story is really good as far as I have read and I’m really happy I get to help out with this book. I really look forward to seeing how everything plays out.

  As a ‘learn as I go’ writer I find this ‘editor’ thing is really great for me. To get to see…

My NaNoWriMo Novel So Far (4,500 Words) [Please Give Your Opinion]

Chapter 1:

            My eyes opened slowly. I looked at the clock. 6:30 AM. Wasn’t it Saturday? Why was I waking up this early? I went to the bathroom and showered.

I went downstairs and saw that the clocks down there were all reading 6:30 AM. Huh? I went to the kitchen. My mom was cooking bacon on the stove. I looked at it. I could see the bubbles of cooking grease, but they weren’t popping. My mom seemed frozen. I looked at my dad. He seemed frozen, too. He was…

The Basics of My Book - Minimal Spoilers

Almost forgot, but here I am to blog about the book I plan on writing eventually at some point if I can ever get motivated on it like I used to be. Also, I forgot to ever try to find our Lord of the Rings books tonight. While everything I have written here is accurate, I haven't taken the description very seriously, so it's pretty lighthearted. The actual novel will likely be far less so, at least as far as overriding theme goes. The book will take itself seriously.

 

So my…

Martyr... Chapter 1

This is the first chapter in a book that I have been working on for a few years. I really want to do a chapter by chapter revealing of it. I really want your guys' opinion on it, so if you could read and comment on it that would be lovely.

Chapter 1

The grass beside her rustled. She heard the roar of the lion. She looked through her binoculars to locate the fierce predator.

Thursday, the day before Friday.

Lately, I've had tons of people tell me how big of a nerd I am. I laughed and resisted the urge to tell them, "Thank you, I know I get way too excited about stuff." Because if I said that then they would want to know what I meant and then I'd have to spend an hour explaining who John and Hank Green are and what a Nerdfighter is.

Most of my friends have read at least Looking for Alaska, so they know who John is, but they just don't care how amazing he is as a vlogger.…

Paper Towns

This review will probably not be as good as it should be because I'm having a really hard time getting myself un-stuck from The Hunger Games. The delay in the review is because I was busy reading all 3 of them and going psycho. I'll do my best to remember details from Paper Towns, but Hunger Games is really good at occupying my thoughts. And again, I'll do my best to avoid spoilers, though that may be rather difficult.



Paper Towns was my favorite of John's three (so far) solo-books and… Continue

Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life

I love going to the movies.



Sadly, the offerings from Hollywood as of late have been less and less interesting and "must see" compared to when I was a child.



Leave it to Edgar Wright to give me back my sense of absolute wonder in the movies.



Thursday night I went to see the midnight showing of "… Continue
