R.A. | 313 comments I started this story a couple days ago as I decided to fill a notebook with a whole book. *coughs* We'll see if that happens! It's going well so far though.

It's about three teenagers (so far) in a gang called "The Peacemaker's" and they have been taken in by three adults who have an orchestra for homeless kids.

That's about it for description, other than the fact that it's a journal book. The three teenagers: Lola, Joseph (Captain Shortbread), and Moses write the entries in their journal. :)

R.A. | 313 comments I've written 603 words so far today! :) Here's a snippet from the first chapter:

Ha, Captain just marched in here chomping on a shortbread! I asked him why he wasn't feeling sick and he said, “Looks like I've overcome that – I'm obsessed with these things again!” And he did a fist-pump!

If anyone wonders what's going on, I don't mind explaining! :D

Excerpt from Chapter Two: (Joseph is writing here)
Seriously, Lola is such a control-girl! Making me come and tell you personal stuff just like that.

Just for the facts, you may like her right now, but once you get to know her, it's a whole different story. (Too bad I can't erase pen—she's going to pound me when she reads this.)

Working on the third!

Excerpt from chapter three (written by Lola):
I keep thinking how scared Moses probably is right now. Maybe he's not because he knows he has that Someone watching over him in hard and scary times. It makes me wonder how true that really is – whether there is Someone that watches over people like Moses always talks about. If so, does this Someone really watch over us? How do we know He's real?

Over and out! :D

Excerpt from Chapter Three (written by Joseph):
The thing is, I've always been close to Moses, so if anything happens to him, I feel responsible to help in any way I can.

Yep, a short excerpt do to spoilers! ;)

Excerpt from Chapter Three (written by Joseph):
Just for the facts, I think Lola's idea to start up a journal was a good one. It's a good place to store information you don't want anyone else to see.

Elizabeth Dragina | 1745 comments *lol* no kidding! Readers don't understand how hard writers have it! I mean we create the adventure, but it takes months upon months! *heavy sigh*

*understands* I know!!!! I should write a book on how hard it is the write a book. *pauses* Wait, no, I'm not doing that! :D


Elizabeth Dragina | 1745 comments XD XD ----- All you'd have to say is "Writing is hard; therefore, I cannot finish this book because of the difficulties." Then publish it! Walla..... People just might understand..... *lol* XD XD

Boy, there's a lot of spoilers in the parts of writing at the moment! I can't find any "safe" excerpts to put out! :D


Elizabeth Dragina | 1745 comments XD I can hardly find anything good either! ( I haven't written anything in my story today... been a little sickly ) Great word count! How many words are you planning to have in this book?

Ugh, no fun! Hope you can write soon!

Thanks! Hmm, I don't know! Whatever word count it ends with, I'll take it! ;)


Elizabeth Dragina | 1745 comments I know... the family is kinda passing it around right now...

Yeah that's what I'm figuring too. I don't usually have a specific word count that I need to reach. I set a chapter count. If I go over it then well.... I don't care, it makes the story better.


message 28: by R.A. (new) - added it

R.A. | 313 comments :(

Right!! Seems the best way!! ;)


Elizabeth Dragina | 1745 comments Thanks for your sympathies! :)

That's what I figure...

This week we're having really nice warm weather, so we got out the pool. ;) The kids and I enjoyed splashing around - ONCE we got used to the freezing water of course.
