I just re-read this short story I did for my English coursework. If I didn't know I'd written it before I read Twilight, I would say it looks like a Twilight copy where all the characters are replaced with WoW characters. Yeah. It did give me goosebumps, at least, and my teacher says my writing style is Victorian. It's definitely better than Twilight as far as the English goes. I've not even once used the word chagrin
I haven't finished it, I'm way above the word count of 800 we're supposed to stick to anyway, might continue working on it when I have time, though. It doesn't have vampires, so it might be better than I make it out to be.
As for real reading, I am reading The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien at the moment (due to necessity, I have to write an essay about it), and re-reading The Host on the side but it isn't as good as the first time. I recently discovered that I own a copy of To Kill A Mockingbird that I should probably read. I've just got too much going on in my head. I write pages and pages of diary at the moment in my free time, I need to get all this stuff out of my head. I hadn't touched my diary in a year until very recently.
Do you guys keep diaries?
