Book writing & school

Bonjourno!

I thought I'd let you all in on my little hobby of writing. I'm no professional, but writing is such a wonderful ting! I can never express myself by speaking, or drawings, or even singing ... but when it comes to writing, the words just flow out of me. It's different from talking to someone, because you're face-to-face - and personally, that terrifies me. However, when I have a smooth black pen in hand and I'm writing on a blank piece of paper, the words are shooting out of the tip of the pen. I love it!

For the past few years (about 3 or so) I've been attempting to write my own novel. Now, I've written books since I was in grade 1 (It's true, it was about a girl who got lost in the park) and it had always been my dreeaaammm to publish one of my novels. I started a few times with some old ideas, but I never really liked them until NOW!

I've been writing the typical story of "The Chosen One" who saves the world, blah, blah, blah. Honestly, it's a lot better then it sounds, but I've been attempting to stray from the typical and cliched storyline. At the moment, I've gotten to almost 100 Microsoft pages - finally! I've written so many drafts of my story because I didn't like a bunch of ideas, but I'm pretty confident that this one is the one. Oh boy, I hope I didn't jinx it.

I always try and set a date for myself on when I'm going to finish my book, but I never make it. I'd like to say that I don't have enough time to write my book, but it's really just that I'm at a point in my book that I don't know whether someone should die or not. I'm really digging into my heart, debating if I should keep them for something important, or their death would make something important. 

On a more depressing note, school is becoming pooey. I have suddenly been thrown into a war of assignments and exams the moment I got off of the Winter Break. I had enjoyed my break so much, and school decided to walk in and ruin everything.

I'm not a huge school lover, especially not with the semester I have. Math is okay, but Philosophy with a teacher who doesn't care, English with a teacher who cares too much that we don't get work done, and APS with a teacher who doesn't like anyone but becomes Miss Nice randomly. I just hope and pray that I survive this semester and make it to the next one. The next one will be better. In fact, after this semester, school will be fun again. 

Pray for me ya'll.

Peace out!
