The stupid Gaian can't speak

I had to read my last post because I couldn't remember what it was that I had written about. It made me kind of giggly inside. My writing style was so different than what it is usually. When I go back to read my first writings I think, 'Thank heaven, I got better.' What changes it is what I have been listening to or reading. When I listen to someone with an accent I start to think that way. I read a book in present tense for the first time (some time ago). That was just weird. So if I ever decide to write in present tense I'll reread that book.

There are things that you do that you can tell someone else hasn't when they start (what I have now decided to call) talking jerk. You should now know what I'm about to complain about and that I really don't like that person. It is not someone I know or I would have a sore throat (holly cow I can spell it). I have noticed that I fight a lot with everyone when I think they're wrong. There are somethings that I know I remember right. By the way, if a tree fell in the forest with no one to hear it, it wouldn't make a sound.
So I got this book from the library about Tolkien (hah! got it on the second try). I haven't finished it yet and have had to renew it several times. I am no longer a ludic reader. Boo hoo! There is a review of The Lord of the Rings in it that rips it apart. I hope Tolkien never had to put up with the man (or jerk) that wrote it. Because I know it is wrong. That man (or jerk) has never written a book, I think, but I hope he did after the review was published. Then he would be guilty as long as he lived for being wrong about a dead man.

Also I came up with an insult for the jerk (or man) but maybe I don't want to tell you. Yeah, not really in the mood. 'This is a blog. Blog writing does not count. Doesn't! Stupid Gaian can't be stupid Gaian anymore!' Lynn thought with panic.

I need to start writing again. Like, now. But I don't have the plot just right. I know! April Fool's is coming! I just need to find out if I need a new account or how to sign up......Bye Bye.

I had to look up ludic.

And, Gaian? Help your poor mother's brain. I know who Gaia is(mother earth). Am I on the right track?

In my stories our planet's name is Gaia Earth (or Earth Gaia. I haven't decided). So anything from or to do with Gaia Earth is Gaian. And Leers usually think that we are idiots, except the few who have actually met one of us (but only if that Gaian wasn't an idiot).

most people in college get to thinking that in order to review someone's work, as the teachers so often ask for, means to be critical and point out everything that is wrong with a piece. They forget that being critical and looking with a sharp eye also means you notice all the good things. I am sure Tolkien has a fault or two, but it is a worthless review without a mention of what he did right. He must have done something right because his work is loved.

Wow! Thank you! I always wanted to write in my site something like that. Can I take part of your post to my blog?
