TCWT: Witty And Original Titles Are SO Last Year

TCWT: Witty And Original Titles Are SO Last Year

Sorry. I really couldn’t think of a title for this post. It’s time for the Teens Can Write Too! blog post and I have to admit, I had a panic attack about an hour ago because I thought I might have missed my day, since the lack of emailed posting schedule has had me all confused. Fortunately for my nerves, I discovered that I hadn’t, and so here is my post – on time! Hopefully ;D The theme for this…

Confessions and Tricks

Confessions and Tricks

Lately I’ve been doing whatever I can to get out of writing. This is bad. This is very bad, for several reasons. The first of these reasons is of course that writing is an outlet for all my frustration and confusion, and I’ve been very frustrated and confused recently, which is one of the reasons I haven’t been writing. However, my excuse for not using this outlet is that my current project, The Quiet Ones, doesn’t contain the same sort…
