Oh hahaha.....
Lol.

I hate twilight. I like scary books, or books about people my age or science fiction.

I'm not religious but I LOVED the Left Behind kids version when I was in middle school.
Read the first 4 harry potter books in 17 days, when I was in 7th grade.
I mostly like books about people my age, something I feel I can relate to.

13 reasons why by jay asker was amazing and so was Speak and Catalyst by Laurie Halse Anderson.

Im picky because I want to LOVE what I am reading, not have to drag through it.

Try the "Young Adults" section of the library. They actually DO have those kinds of books there.

I don't read twilight dammit.
And the sparkly vampire guy is not hot neither is the barely legal thing with all the muscles...

txt...I was talking about the book you mentioned - although, it sounds pretty similar to the Twilight kind of stuff...minus vampires apparently....

The content of that book was hardly for a young teen girl unless the young teen girls parent don't care what she reads.

I'll tell you what you should do with your spare time, txt. You should write. You're not un-talented. Sometimes you're funny. (When you aren't complaining.) You've told me you did well in writing classes at school. You should have a notebook with you and write when you're not selling gas and ciggies.

The Twilight author lives in my area. I've seen her a couple of times and thought, "Good for you! A great idea and you made yourself a bundle."

I have done some writing in my spare time.
Its fun for a bit but then I have so many ideas and ways the story could go and then it gets overwhelming and I feel like I can't get it all out on paper fast enough and it drives me nuts. I've written a lot of shortish stories...not really short about medium length and have tons of ideas for screenplays and such but getting those ideas from my head onto paper is excruciatingly difficult.

I'm a talker, I don't shut up, I think I drive my customers nuts because I love to talk and they can't stay long enough to chat and it makes me sad lol and that's why I text my friends....I just cannot shut up most days.

Like I feel asleep texting a new crush last night and was texting him and started to pass out and literally was still texting but it started coming out like hfweurewu and I had to shake it off and wake up enough to correct it and finally pass out.

And I was a bomb english student.
I can write the crap out of a paper and I don't know if its a great skill or not but I can BS a paper as well....I can literally work with nothing and come up with pages and pages.

We've noticed.

You should seriously think about getting a spiral notebook and carrying it with you every where you go and write.

Or you can just make up one more excuse on why you aren't doing anything constructive with your life.

(And that's all I'm going to say because I've promised myself not to get drawn into all your drama.)

I'm working...how is that not constructive?
I'm starting soccer in March and will be playing on Monday nights.


Ohhh I kind of want to tell you guys about this new guy and everything but I don't know if you all even care....
