WOO HOO!

I’m 18! I’m a big bad MAJOR! (minor is under 18 and major has to be over it)

Finals are done! AP Biology test is done (I think I got a 5 out of 5!)! School is done!

I just started writing again. I am writing a play about the workplace. I was totally inspired this year’s English class. Each marking period was thematic in relation to life like justice and tragedy. For the second semester, we studied Oedipus Rex (I LOVE TIRESIAS!!!!), Death of a Salesman (I LOVE BIFF!!!!), Bargain, and The Lottery. It was such a learning experience that it gave me the courage to write a play. Let’s be honest, I actually wanted to write one before hand, but I was uncertain of how to go about it. I wrote one during Christmas break…it was depressing even though I was jolly during the season and I was not pleased with how it came out. SO I decided to write something totally different from what I usually try to write and attempt to use Aristotle’s theatre critiquing to develop my play-writing style.

Wish me luck.

Hi there!

I was inspired today and tried to write a rap. The key word is tried.

The topic was Kyleigh’s Law and my syllables and rhyme scheme were on. (ABBA format) However, there were like two or three parts I could put to a beat in my head, the rest of it, kept on changing, like I could not keep a steady beat in my head.

Well, one good thing came out of this today….I learned that writing rap songs are SO not my talent!

Thanks for reading.

I finished my sixth book. (Now 6 books before I turn 18!) I think that I will put it into the end of the history of Whithith….I can’t tell you what my devious mind has come up with (that would be spoilers), but I can tell you that Whithith will be epic!

Oh, and right now, I am starting my own version of Sleeping Beauty. It won’t be anything like you’ve read or saw before!

Thanks for reading.

I met a great lady on Thursday, THE MAYA ANGELOU! She is far more amazing than her impressive resume.

I also met with the owners of 4G’s Book Club there. We chatted and there is a possibility that I could have a book event at the store/club. I hope that everything will work out!

AP exam is tomorrow, which means that I’ll be able to write again in the next 30 hours.

Keep a weather eye out for NJ Star Ledger’s book review of The Tales of Whithith The Assignment.

Keeping busy.

Thanks for reading.
