YAY I SURVIVED EXAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
barely I got some of my grades back, and I did pretty good! I was really worried about my math exam, but I got an A, so yay!! (WOAH that rhymed!! I should be a poet!!)
But now that exams are over, I’m sick……….. with strep throat…………. for the THIRD TIME IN MY OH-SO-SHORT LIFE?!?!?!?
Also, how is it that I’ve been wanting to be an author for 5 years and THERE AREN’T ANY WRITING POSTS?!
Today I’m going to talk about one of my passions- WRITING!!
Even though I’m only a teen, I still think that being an author at my age is possible. My goal is to be traditionally published before I’m 18. (I’M AMBITIOUS!)
In today’s post, I’m going to be talking about the novel I’m working on!
BEHOLD- THE COVER!!
I kinda don’t have a cover…. but one’s coming soon!
The title is….
Okay, my working title is Seeing Isn’t Believing (doesn’t that sound cool!?!) BUT it kind of doesn’t fit the non existent plot of my novel.
BUT I’m really proud of the backstory/locationy thingy of my novel (so of course I’m saving that for the end of this post!!)
Also, just to clarify, I AM NOT DONE WITH THIS NOVEL. I probably will never be, since half of my document looks like:
TIME SKIP SINCE THIS PART IS BORING
There are just
SO MANY some parts I reallllallalalalalalaly* don’t want to write
*It’s funny what exams can do to your spelling
Anyyyyhoooo (I love saying that- does anyone else love saying that?) let’s learn a bit about the characters!
Meet your 15 year old, kind, sweet, VERY CONFUSED WITH EVERYTHING, boy with heterochromia iridium (a condition where someone has two different color eyes, in Grey’s case, a brown eye and a blue eye)
Grey’s life in one quote: “Grey thought he was going to die.”
I LOVE RUNE SOOOOO MUCH AAAAHHH!!!!!
Okay, Rune is very sarcastic. sarcastic SaRcAsTiC SARCASTIC!! (that was oddly a lot of fun to write!) She closes everyone off because of her dark mysterious past!!! (there HAS to be a person with a dark mysterious past in literally every book I’ve read.) Rune’s ability (you’ll learn what abilities are soon!) is being able to control the pulses sent to the brain of a person by making some sort of physical contact. She has gold-flecked brown eyes and caramel/red hair.
Rune as describe by Grey: “The way her eyebrows were raised and her arms were crossed screamed ‘YOU WILL BE SORRY YOU EVER MET ME.’”
~CHARLIE ALAYO a.k.a I LOVE HIM SO MUCH <3~
Charlie is 11-ish. He’s basically a ball of sunshine!! He sees the good in everyone, and is always happy and energetic!! (Also, Charlie’s basically me since it’s pretty easy to write a character when you know all about them.)
Charlie as described by Grey: “Charlie, on the other hand, looked like a disaster in motion. His foot had stopped bouncing, but now his arms were flailing wildly.”
YAY THE OLDER SISTER!!! Lyra is seventeen, the oldest out of the main characters. She’s extremely protective of Charlie, but teases him a lot, in a nice way. Lyra has looong golden hair
(like rapunzel!!) She really likes nature. Her ability is being freakishly good at reading body language- if she knows you well enough, it’s like reading your mind.
Side note: WordPress is telling me Alayo is spelled wrong in Charlie’s name but not Lyra?? I SEE WORDPRESS HAS ALREADY CHOSEN IT’S FAVORITE CHARACTER!!
I don’t really have a good Lyra quote for now, but I’ll update you guys when I have a good one!!
That’s it for the character’s!!! Now for the complex backstory I was talking about…
WHICH IS COMING IN MY NEXT WRITING POST!!!!!! I AM SO EVIL MUAHAHAHAHA!!!
Thanks so much for reading this!! I’m very sorry that this whole post is a mess of capitilized words and random ramblings- I’m really tired (like always!!)
See you soon for the next post!!
P.S. Guess what? Scroll down a bit for a surprise!
I’M ACTUALLY NOT EVIL!!! YAY!!!!! HERE’S THE BACKSTORY!!!
So, the characters I just listed listed live in Orion, which is basically the North America of the future. In the year of 2167, people with brown eyes (which are actually rare instead of dominant at this time) were believed to have bad magical powers!!! People started getting scared of the BE’s (brown eyed people for short) and started hunting them. (This actually sounds a lot like the Salem Witch Trials.) A couple decades in the future, when BE’s are nearly wiped out (but slowly regrowing!!) the Leader of Orion, Cobalt Indigo, makes a law that people’s status will be determined by eye color- people with blue eyes (about 20%) are treated like royalty. People with green eyes (about 50%) are treated really really really well. People with hazel eyes (about 20%) are treated well. People with brown eyes (about 10%) are deemed dangerous and sent to something like a rehabilitation center. The more rowdy BE’s, or the ones caught breaking the rules, are sent to a really remote place, where they’re trained for something big!!!!!!!! And then something happens!!!!! BUT I can’t tell you because it’s basically the book!!!!!!
That’s it!! (For real!!!)
Thanks for reading! Do you enjoy writing? Who was your favorite character?
