Hey everyone. I hope everyone has had a good week so far. What are you doing in your long weekend? It’s easter weekend, Yay. Good friday, woo! A good day indeed. I have a question for everyone reading this post, so please comment in the section below.
I have been writing for 6 years but never in that time, have I went to the public library as a hang out. I didn’t normally borrow books. Instead, I’d go to Whitcoulls and Paper Plus. This was because I wanted to own the books even if i’d only read them once.
Is this normal for a writer?
Nowadays, even though there are a few books I’d love to have, I borrow them instead. Is this okay? Is it normal? When you think of a reader or even a writer, you think of the library. But I’ve only associated myself with the library only this year.
Is this normal?
Let me know what you think in the comments section below. Do you go to the library, or would you rather buy the book?
I’m in my last year of high school, year 13. I have an internal that I have to hand in tomorrow. The only thing is, the bastard thing isn’t done yet. I could do it now. in fact, i should be doing it now instead of writing my blog and listening to music on you tube by artists who i’ve never known until right now. I’m actually kind of liking this music and i think that pop has way too much spotlight time, so much so that you only kind of know about pop and liking anything else is considered wierd and abnormal.
BUT anyways, besides all that, i don’t feel comfortable at all. I’m kicking myself for not handing it in as a final draft earlier, for not being good enough, for not having the courage to do it right now and get it fnished instead of watiing for tomorrow to do it when i would only hasve 45 minutes to fnish it before bi o lesson. Have yu ever felt like you were useless? worthless
Recently, I’ve become interested in writing competitions to do while I fail at writing a novel. And one competiiton which had caught my eye, was the WNDB (we need diverse books) contest. I need to write a short story that appeals to children ages 8-12 years old. This will be a challenge because a. I don’t usually write/work on short stories and b. I don’t usually write for children.
On top of that, it also has to be a diverse story from a diverse story? I am apparently mildly autistic. I am saying “apparently” because because I think I’m not but who am I against a psychiatrist? Am I diverse?
My story is about an autistic boy named Archer (may tell you Archer’s story and my fling towards mitochondrial disease career), who is obsessed with numbers and have forgotten the times and loves blind folded chess. That’s chess without a chess board by the way. Is this a diverse story? Is this going to appeal to children who are also facing with the problems that archer faces? Or even if they don’t face these problems, maybe they can still relate to him.
Wish me luck in this competition and I will post on other competitions that I’m doing or find later on in the week. I’ll also do daily word prompts again.
Thank you and please feel free to leave a comment down below.
I have good news. I started school 2 days ago on Friday. I’m so happy that I’ve already started because I had a lot to do in the week end and even today, I had work to do. I have a lot of studying to do, not just to catch up, but to practise the externals that we haven’t yet covered this year. I hope that I’ll be able to do well this year, be hard working but also have fun and meet new people.
If you are a christian, please pray for me as I go through this testing year. At the start of the year and even at the end of 2014, i felt that 2015 was/is going to be a good year and it has been so far. This year was probably the best Chinese new year celebration that we’d ever had. I think this is because of the people, the food but also because i’m older now and appreciate more the people who have been in my life all along as well as the little ones who have only begun theirs. Let me tell you, it’s great being an aunty and not many people will say that.
Even the church service as Victory Christian church was good. It was about missionaries, how God wants every one to be saved and to have knowledge of the truth. He wants his disciples to go to every nation and baptise the people int he name of the father, the son and the holy spirit. Am i being to religious here? There are also growth groups and i’m thinking of joining one particular group that is all about being healthy. I DO want to be fit and be able to run and swim fast.
What do you do on your sundays? What do you want God to do in your life this year? Please leave a comment below and like my blog post. Thank you.
Hi guys. So School is a big part of my life so i think that most of my blog posts are going to have something to do with school including this post here. This post is in reply to the “daily post” word prompt, “sink or swim”. I don’t see why i need to provide a link to their website. I hope you don’t mind.
It’s 2014. Last year of school forever. But you have a little problem with your mind. Despite that, you’re in school. Today, you are taking your mock exam for bio. You enter the hall and sit down. The exam starts. You open the first paper; evolution. In 15 minutes, you’ve finished that booklet. Yuo go tot he other two booklets. Another 15 or 20 minutes have gone past and you’re done. You open one paper and attempt to read the mess tyou’ve made to fix anything but you can’t and you quickly close the book.
It’s hopless to try to fix it or to change things. It’s finished. it’s done. it’s over. You can’t do anything. sink or swim.
You start to sing.
Just mouthing the words, not actually singing a loud. After all, you’re a shy person.
People are looking at you. some people are laughing. Even the teachers seem amused. You don’t care. You don’t mind. There’s somethign wrong with your brain by the way.
The bell finally rings. it’s been 3 hours. it’s done and it’s over. The mocks, i mean, are over.m Sink or swim.
Well, i don’t think i was swimming very well.
But i haven’t sunk yet.
There is still the final exams (which i still didn’t do so well in), and i have this year as well to really prove myself and give it all i’ve got.
Moral of the story? Whether or not you have a medical condition, whether or not you have a mum, or a hundred caregivers trying to help you and coax you and tell you what to do, it’s up to you to make the move. Your success and your failure all falls on your shoulder and yours alone so don’t blame anyone else. This is your effort or lack of effort. You know what i mean. Try your best and your hardest and be consistent.
