So, yah, I have writer's block. Damn. I hate this. I love writing, but I can't right now. ARGH! I'M EVEN HAVING TROUBLE DECIDING WHAT TO WRITE IN THIS STUPID JOURNAL ENTRY! I CAN'T EVEN THINK OF ANY PHRASES TO DESCRIBE HOW I'M FEELING RIGHT NOW PROPERLY! ARGH!
I was talking about what I should do with my hair today while I was in the car with my uncle, my sister, and my brother. (We were going to see Spider-Man 3. But more on that later.) My uncle stopped by Target on the way to the movie, and he bought me some hair gel!
I just learned that a couple of teachers at my school are trying to organize a literature magazine! *drools* I might even be able to write for it! I loooooove writing. I'd better go see those teachers tomorrow and ask about it! If they're short of writers, I'll be more than happy to contribute! :D
This is my first draft of my GLM piece, about self discovery and how it applies to my parents. All feedback is welcome! And Pat, when I'm done fiddling about with it, I'll send it in. :D
A good friend of mine said that if I am writing a book, i should get it copyrighted before i post it anywhere. I am not finished, it is an ongoing work, and i post it because i like to hear back from people on how i am doing. But at the same time, i would hate it if someone were to copy my work. What should I do??????
I was chatting with Brent Hartinger, author of The Geography Club, yesterday. Ok, that's not precisely what happened. In fact, I wrote to him asking him if he would please read Orphan's Quest and give me some advice on how to get an agent and a real publisher. He wrote back and kindly offered to do what he could to help. He did however give me some discouraging news.
I'm very happy. So far, five of you have taken me up on my offer for a free download of Orphan's Quest. I know I know, I'm not making any money giving away freebies. But just the fact that kids are reading it who would be otherwise unable to makes me extremely glad.
