Old Love vs. New

When I was about nine (I'm probably wrong. I don't remember too much from that time. I don't really want to.) I was afraid some other book would come along and replace Artemis Fowl. I shouldn't have worried. Artemis Fowl is one of a kind. The Lord of the Rings is one of a kind. I haven't even finished the whole thing, but I am in love with it. If only I could talk to Tolkien for a day and figure out what he was like. I can't decide which book I like best. That is okay with me. There is room enough for a million books in my heart. One other book I haven't finished but love already is The Hound of the Baskervilles. I guess it's the first real mystery book I've read and I plan to read more Sherlock Holmes.

I'm not going to tell you when my book plans have changed. Yes, they have changed yet again and I still have 6 days til NaNoWriMo so it probably will change at least two more times I'm guessing.

I was going to blog about this a week ago but blogging isn't that fun anymore (like it ever was). I am no longer the 1st counselor for the Beehives. Here is the part that I'm not supposed to be super excited about but am anyway. I'm not in the presidency at all! There are just enough girls now for a whole presidency and one. I'm that one! Call me a slacker if you want to but I'll turn up my music. And just in time for NaNo WriMo. Six more days. Hope I can come up with a good story plot by then.

I don't know....Why do you keep asking me?

I've changed my mind......again. First I was going to write story 1., then it changed to story 2., but now I changed story 2. almost beyond recognition. It was about a girl who was obsessed with writing a book. After she names it she dies. To me it is a satisfying ending because I know her a lot better then you do from my summary. I didn't know how I was going to....The problem isn't exciting. Okay, now....haha I almost told you what I changed it to. I've also changed story 1. but not that much. All I've changed is what time it starts. I think that this is the last time I'm going to change it, but that is what I thought the last time.

My mom is being nice to me right now. She took the two 'kids' to a church activity for the primary presentation. I'm home alone but that's alright with me! Mom said she was going to drop them off, return library books, and come home. It's been awhile, long enough for me to come up with the rough outline for a book. I think she is being nice but then again she could be waiting for me to save her from plutanions who are mad because Pluto isn't a planet anymore. It took them long enough to find out.

I write

Grandma asked why she hadn't been invited to read anything that I wrote. I've told her before that no writer would be stupid enough to show their first draft to anyone. You will see it when I'm done with it. I've also been waiting for NaNoWriMo to write. Then I'll rewrite it and again. Sometime this year I'll start a program Mom got for me. By the time I'm done with it I'll have another book. Lastly I'll rewrite the first book. Then my editors will see it.

You will be warned

Instead of 7 interesting things, I am going to do 7 warnings so that I can get angry at you and say that I warned you.

  2. Instead of lifting up my book to see what I'm reading, ask me so that I don't lose my place and get creeped out.
  3. If I look like I am going to bite your head off, I probably will unless you get away fast enough.
  4. If I look uncomfortable, I am. Pretend I'm not there: It will make my day.
  5. Tell me you like something about me. I dare you.
  6. Don't say you like Harry Potter or Twilight. I will proceed to think about how much you don't think.
  7. Don't think that just because I'm officially a teen that I have lost my mind. I've been in this sorry state for a long time. Don't say that I haven't. I'm not senseless ( I'm a ditz).

You have been warned. So when my books are sad and I kill people off, I'm happy( in La La land).

Why do I need to breathe?

"I'm not getting in the time capsule!"
"But you like the Doctor's."
"His is cool and yours is boring."
"Come on. You'll get to learn about the history of America."
"America is boring. Why can't we go to Ireland?"
"You will get in the capsule whether you are dead or alive."
"This is soooo cliche but make me anyway."
"Get in now or I will tell your mom."
"Scary. What is she going to do? Love me to death? In fact I wouldn't mind dying. It would be better then learning about America."
"You little twerp!"
"If I am little, you are microscopic. I'm tired of this conversation. Hey Owen, do you want to run away now?"
"I thought we didn't run away until you start writing."
"I've changed it again. It starts while we are wandering."
"I don't really want to start now. You should go learn about America."
"You're just saying that because you're Irish!"
"No I am not! I would tell you where I am from but you haven't given it a name yet."

Yes, this is crazy. Mom knows what most of it is about. You don't so I'll tell you. My history book started off with a time capsule. This history book is all about America. I don't like American history. Bor-ing! Sorry. I'm having one of those writer moments. I'm going to explain. Writers ask a lot of questions whether to themselves of to someone else. This habit does not mix well with depression. Example: Why do I need to breathe? Because every one says so. They could be wrong. I should breathe in now. I can't feel my brain. But what if they are wrong? An hour latter someone discovers you, but don't worry I'm sure you'll have a nice funeral. Congratulations, you have proved that breathing is unnecessary if you don't mind dying. Huuuh I feel like writing but I shouldn't start the book yet. I need to take a shower. If you are wondering what happened to the time capsule person: I beat her up and then Owen decided we could go.
