I'm not a fan of any of the English classes I've taken so far, but it's just been Comp I & II, and Reading Poetry. (Comp II and RP I'm in now.) But I might look at doing a Creative Writing class at some point just for the heck of it.

none of my english classes were all that fun.... although... i got my best ever compliment in my English 2 class (that i took when i was a junior in highschool)

I had to write a story based on one of the styles of the books we had read. So i wrote this awesome story that is kind of what lead to the idea for Unsung zeros where it was just a girl sitting at a graduation party telling of what was going to happen to these 4 other kids....everything she did to ruin there life for them bullying her... I based it off of King Richard's opening, where Richard tells of everything that's going to happen in the book...

My teacher gave me an A+ and wrote "this scared the shit out of me" I hung it up on my wall for like a year!

Good job! I only have 56 words of Lifelike. But I have done a ton of outlining for it today, so...success on that part!

ETA: Okay, I'm gonna play some video games the rest of the night. So I'm off. Night!

Ok since I seem to be the only one awake, i'll start by saying WELCOME!

Now you must answer some questions

1) what do you prefer to be called?
2) How old are you
3) What do you write? (UF, Contemp, thriller, ect...)

I added the "What do you prefer to be called" because that question is always asked eventually anyway!

Oh random question, but its been bugging me... If "help" was written on your wall suddenly in blood (there were other "haunting" stuff that happened too) would you feel you needed to help whatever the hell it was that wrote it?

My name is Micah

19

I JUST finished my Halo Series which is a gay romance story.
A lot of people seem to really enjoy it.

I write stories with diverse characters(Black, White, Gay, Straight, etc.)

Currently, I am beginning my new series called Hell which is a Dystopian Horror Young Adult story.

I just need some help with a few questions i have. Grrr!

Nice to meet you, Micah!

My name is Mikey, I'm 18. I write Epic Fantasy, for the most part, but I intend to branch out at some point. Haha.

What sort of questions do you have?

Oh Hell sounds exciting!

I am usually horrible with names. Thankfully your name is similar to mine so I can remember it.

Uhhh.
Are any of you familiar with Michael Grant's Gone series?

oh and it was rude of me not to ask what you guys write(Sorry but thanks for telling me)
