I am just trying to practice all types of writing on this blog. I tend to write about what I am interested at the time, or just what is going on at school. I hope you love hearing about my experience as much as I enjoyed it ;)

Grab Some Coffee And Judge Me (non formal introduction)
backstory: I signed up for this Coursera course online and I had to introduce myself. This is what I whipped up.
Let me hook you right here, right now: I am 16 year old author. Well... Arrow's Rescue was never published... and I was 8 years old at time, so the book, unfortunately, couldn't make it to the charts. False advertising? Maybe. Serious about this class? Most definitely. I have always enjoyed writing, and try to update my blog about the activities in my life. If I was to write a book I would call it The Teenage Chronicles and All the Thing the Hormones Made Us Do. Also, I have diaries upon diaries full of gossip, rumors, and fairy tales about vicious, and fictitious, boys that have made me feel a certain kind of way. My diary keeping began in 6th grade, because it was a homework assignment. Now it seems all the writing I ever do is for a grade, or SAT score out of 12.
Now I am a senior in high school, but not a senior in writing. Sure, ink glides off of my pen, and my fingers click-clack away on the keyboard, but nothing is ever concise enough to give me an A in my Advanced Placement English courses. I need help so I can do well in my Advanced Placement English Literature course that will commence in the fall of 2015. Hiring tutors isn't an option for me, so I am trying to utilize Coursera's free resources to make my writing more fluid, and enjoyable.
I need all the help I can get, AND THIS MEANS YOU so please give me all the constructive criticism you can summon (and leave the devil I call bad writing in hell).
