    Waiting for My Time

    by

    I sit in the dark closet day after day, waiting for my time to come. I hear my owner come and go. I hear the sounds of my friends, the toaster, the dishwasher, but she never comes for me. Wait, I hear her come into the kitchen. She opens the …

    Dear Future Self

    by

    Dear Future Self,

    In 10 years, I have a lot of ideal thoughts on how I want my life to be. I want to be married, with one or two kids by now. I want to be climbing the ladder at work,  on my way to being a CEO. But, …

    What makes a story interesting?

    by

    I chose to use the story “House of Leaves” because it was one of the weirdest, yet most interesting book I’ve ever read. It is about a myth that there was a house that could change shape, that was larger inside than outside, and that people died in. It really …

    A Letter for My Mother

    by

    Dear Mother,

    Now that I have gone away to college, I have had time to think and reflect on our relationship. I know we have had our share of problems, but I hope in the future we are able to start getting past them.

    Growing up, I don’t think you …

    99 Extras

    by

    For this assignment, I chose to watch Brooklyn 99. A show, that while I have no interest in, my friends are obsessed with. The episode’s plot was that a bunch of convicts from jail escaped and its the 99’s job to catch them all. I thought this would be perfect …

    Meet James

    by

    James McArthur would love to be nothing more than your average girl. But, you can already see that she isn’t. For goodness sakes, her parents named her James! Her mom wanted her to be ‘different’ and ‘special’ but she wants nothing of the sort. Growing up she just went by …

    What’s A Title Got To Do?

    by

    What makes a good blog post title? I think it depends on the person honestly because I might think a title is funny and witty, but the next person might not get the joke or reference I’m trying to make.

    I personally enjoy song lyric titles when they fit with …

    Writing to Discuss Writing

    by

    I once again enjoyed this week more than I expected! I was a little concerned at first about the Writing Week because writing is not one of my favorite things to do, but I enjoyed the prompts. I found the writing prompts that allowed me to think and create what …

    Week 3

    by

    There are soooooo many things we did this week! I made seven posts! Thats excluding all the commenting and tweeting! I think this week has been more stressful for me than other weeks will be because I’m in two writing intensive classes already and so when I learned this week …

    Witches of the Past

    by

    Storytelling has been around for centuries, so it makes sense that the mediums used for it have changed. At the end of the day, what societies look like change, but they are still made up of people with the same basic needs and desires. As humans, one of our core …

    Tea Time Everyday

    by

    I often think about where I would live if I could live anywhere in the world. I saw this assignment (3 stars) and knew the answer pretty much immediately. I would love to live in London or really anywhere in England. I think I would like to live there anytime …

    My Character

    by

    I really liked the character details I was given by the super hero generator, so I’ve decided to make that my character! I’m a huge fan of the cat family (my favorite animal is a lion) so when it told me I was a leopard I was ecstatic! Also …

    Harry Potter

    by

    I chose “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” for my story because it relates to the folklore theme with wizardry and dragons. There is some foreshadowing in this story such as when Harry had a dream about the graveyard, and when Moody acted weird at the beginning dinner scene …

    Alphabet soup

    by

    I chose to do this assignment because I have no idea where this story could lead, but I’d like to find out!

    As Berry crawled down escalators, fire gained him igniting Jesse’s knees. Laughing maniacally, nearby other people quietly ran straight towards unopened visible windows Xecuting yellow zombies.

    I know …

    Week 3 Summary

    by

     

    I really enjoyed this week. As you may have read before I’m not big when it comes to writing or creative artistic type things. Obviously this class by design is causing me to go outside of my comfort zone which i’m finding is not an entirely bad thing.

    This …

    Shadow Leopard

    by

    I’m awoken at 6pm every day, my instincts wake me. It is time for me to prowl my city, Electric City… it seems so elegant in the dark… I pass my tools from my archaeologist days, I no longer need them, I have the artifacts’ knowledge ingrained in my memory. …

    Bucket List

    The assignment I chose to do for two stars is to create a bucket list. I’ve made one years ago when I was in middle school, but I threw it away when I was about half a page into it. I think it’ll be fun to make another one, and …

    Introducing: Manny

    by

    It took me a long time to decide what kind of character I wanted to create. I used to be very into Greek mythology, but I feel as if every creature already has a name and purpose. Trying to create my own would be extremely difficult and I’d feel like …

    Telling Tangled

    by

    Instead of picking on of the provided stories to read, I chose to rematch Disney’s Tangled. I’m 200% obsessed with this movie so I’ll use any excuse to re-watch it. Once I did the readings and watched the Vonnegut video, I realized Tangled would be perfect for this assignment. I …

    The house owned by my step-grandparents in Kenya

    This summer I visited Kenya with my family! We visited many people and saw many animals, so there are many stories to tell. First we stayed at my step-grandparents house in Nairobi, we got to meet some locals and they taught us …
