Not everybody likes to write stories, some people like to write poetry or both. Once at least a couple of people have decided to do this contest, I will tell you the deadline. The poem has to be titled "Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3" and it doesn't have to rhyme. Please make it no more than a page. Thank you!

the deadline is february 9th, if you can get other people to join please. I will too.
If that is too late, then february 2nd. k?

dont worry, sarah! I like twilight :) but not because of edward, i like the plot, intrigue, my fav character is alice, and stephanie myer rocks! plus jacob black is just as cool or more cool than edward. im on eclipse, dont give anything away!:)


message 16: by Amy (new)

Amy (runawaymarbles) I hate Eddie and Alice and Bella.


message 17: by Amy (new)

Amy (runawaymarbles) Edward has NO personality.


message 18: by Sarah, The Flying Monkey (new)

Sarah | 279 comments Mod
He has a personality! Whats wrong with Alice? I like her, shes fun to read about :) and theres nothing wrong with Bella. She's just a normal teenager


message 19: by Amy (new)

Amy (runawaymarbles) a normal teenager who marries for sex? hmm. And what, exactly, is Eddie's personality?


message 20: by Sarah, The Flying Monkey (new)

Sarah | 279 comments Mod
Ed has a personality, hes nice, overreacts alot, smart, a little controlling, obsessive and self sacrificing, secretive, and curious. Annoyingly preppy? Alice just energetic and loves to overdo things. So your saying that every teenager is super strong, graceful, perfectly cordinated, and really smart?

This is my poem, I hope you like it!
Okay, guys:
Alice is an amazing character, what are you talking about?
I probably like Jacob better than Edward, but they both have personalities. I like Bella, but she doesn't stand out to me, because her life revolves around a man and nothing else!!
But Twilight is a great concept, guys, give it some credit! :)

i dont bug u all the time, just some of the time :) and it would b alot easier if we just had 2 put testing 1 2 3 into our poems, not as the title. writing the poem is waaay harder then i thought it would be :(


message 23: by Sarah, The Flying Monkey (new)

Sarah | 279 comments Mod
writing the script was waaaay easier then writing the poem! the script u just write down lines and maybe some stage directions, but poems u have to find a good idea, sometimes good rhyming words, good rythm, and awesome words! its hard :(


message 24: by Sarah, The Flying Monkey (new)

Sarah | 279 comments Mod
scripts r not hard at all, u just have to write what people say, thats it. with stories and poems u hav to also put a bunch of big complicated words, gigantic descriptions and a bunch of details. scripts are much easier.


message 25: by Zandy (new)

Zandy | 173 comments Mod
hey guys! Thanks for the poem compliment, and I agree, I would rather not fight about Twilight. :) If you look at the top of the page, you will see that the poem has to be titled Testing, Testing, 1, 2,3 not the first line. I used it as the first line, anyway..
good luck! :)

Zandy | 173 comments Mod
Yah. we can do it now, if you want, if no one else is going to enter. I will make a poll and everyone can vote, but no one is allowed to vote for themselves. k?

Olivia (livibooks3) | 229 comments Mod
just put the link in the discussion for it, thats all


message 46: by Amy (new)

Amy (runawaymarbles) you know what? Zandy should change the name of this group to "Θε ζανδψ γρουπ". It looks so much cooler, and people won't think it's so egotistical.
