I posted a link for Excuse Me, Princess (my story on here) on my facebook page and I had my friends Elaina, Carly, & Rachel come read it. The convorsations after they read it went like this:
Elaina:
E: Her names Alabama?
K: Yes, her name is Alabama, after the state she was born in.
E: And they call her Ambie?
K: Yes.
E: And she likes Brian?
K: Yes.
E: Interesting.

I'm like what the heck? That's all you have to say?

Carly:
K: What'd ya think?
C: I like it.
K: What's your favorite character?
C: Ummm.... *Long pause* I like Becca. And Ambie..... Terence is cool.

Rachel:
K: What'd ya think about it Rach?
R: Loved it!
K: Really?
R: Yes! Loved it, love you, gotta go. *Logs off chat.*

Seriusly, they. are. oblivius! Oh yeah, and my guy friend Jimmy & Quinton. After they read my book report over the sixth Mediator book.

J: Is this that vampire thing?
K: No.....
J: It's Twlight.
K: It's The Mediator: Twilight!
Q: And it's how long?
K: 4 Pages.
Quinton & Jimmy trade looks.
Q: You write.
J: Too much.

Ya think??-

I love em to death but they can be so oblivius sometimes! Ha ha. I love Sarah Dessen's novel "Keeping the Moon." So if anyone every told me that I wrote like Sarah Dessen I'd be happy. Or Danielle Steel, cause my middle name is after her. Peace. Love. Sunshine!-

I wrote a short story one time about an eating disorder, and it was kind of heavy, but my friend Mags wanted to read it. Here's what she said... <_<

Me: So, what'd you think?
Mags: Hmm...
Me: ... Really, you can be honest...
Mags: It was disturbing, but I loved it! Oh, and it made me nauseous! *smiles and leaves*
Me: ??????

Hi, The Weirdest Critcism I Ever Had...
I'm Not Sure This Counts,
But It's Kinda Funny.

*In 6th Grade Class Room."


Jacob: Why Does Your Notebook Say 'Red Rain'?
Me: 'Cause It's The Story I'm Writng.
Jacob: *Stares Blankly*
Me: Do NOT Read It, *I Get Up To Ask The Teacher Who Knows What*
Me: *Turn Back To My Seat To See Jacob, Andrew, Robert, Ryan, && Paul Reading My Notebook*
Robert: *Look's Up* You Lived In Hollywood?
Me: No. *Takes Away Notebook*
Robert: Then Why Did Your Notebook Say You Lived In Hollywood?
Me: *Sits Back In Seat && Ignores Robert*
*Stares Angrily At Jacob*
Jacob: What?

For The Whole Rest of The Day People Were Asking Me
'You Lived In Hollywood?'
I Never Wrote The Rest of 'Red Rain' After That.

P.S. I NEVER Lived In Hollywood! Ever, Never Even Been There. The Main Character Was Just From Hollywood.

Violence seems to go along wtih my reviews.

And if the apple was turned into an apple what was it befor it became an apple?
And why was it turned into an apple?

The weirdest criticism I received was to make my character less 'gay' The character was gay! He can't be less gay. Jeez.

Mom: You're not a good writer. You make too many mistakes and never let people help you..*sets down my PRIVATE diary*
Me: *burns diary and goes back to my ACTUAL writing*

Random people at my highschool:
Girl I don't know: You're the writer, right?
Me: Yeah, I guess...
Girl: I hate you..
S: :) *walks up*
girl: Hi!
S: Uh...hi...? o_0
Girl: Are you two dating? Because in the writing projects our teacher uses as examples, it seems that you are..
Me and S: 0_o" who are you, again?

My weirdest was my arabic teacher. Although everybody already knew she was crazy anyway.

Teacher stops in the middle of class and starts starring at me : The assignment you gave in was really beautiful! I adored it! (and so on and so on) but the only problem was, your vocabulary sucks

Me: It's cause I usualy write in English

Teacher: Well I can help you change that...



:icon_eek:
My friends were laughing.. -.-

Pretty much why I'll never write while at school...

*Writing into my binder while the rest of the class did their math reviews.*
M: Jeez! How much are you going to write? Aren't you done yet?
Me: Um... I've only written five pages.
M: Jeez...

A: Oh! You should add XYZ.
Me: *suprized they had a valid idea. Or one that didn't include zombies* Sure! Okay. Let me add that... done!
A: *looks at paper* Can you write that you got your idea from me?
Me: Sure...

T: You have to read this! This is the best thing I've ever read!
Me: *stares* Best. Thing. You've. Ever. Read?
T: *laughs* Your awesomeness goes without saying.
Me: ...

Not too sure this completly goes...

These are all so LOL. (Wow it started since 2007. Guess weird comments never die.)


I used 'blinking back tears' in a composition I wrote in Secondary School and my teacher went, "You can't use that."

When I went up to ask her why, and to say that Meg Cabot used the phrase in her books she went, "She's an published author."

Which makes me wonder why I can't use the phrase in the first place.

Boy do I have an urge to write a book FULL OF THE PHRASE and publish it and send it to her.

That was 3 years ago. I never got over that comment. :(

Friend: Why did you write a story about vampires?
Me: Uh, I didn't, it's about Zombies.
F: But they eat people?
Me: Yea, Because they're ZOMBIES.
F:But don't vampires eat people?
Me: No...
F: Why not?
Me: BECAUSE THEY JUST DONT!!

This went on for afew minutes until I finally gave up on explaining to her what a zombie is.

A while ago, my friend gave me some super weird criticism, and I was like "Joy, now I have something to post on the thread!" but then I couldn't find the thread.

Anyway, here it is:

*I'd just showed my story that I was really proud of*

Friend:I finished.

Me: And?!?!?!

Friend: I hated it.

Me: .....

Friend: It made me puke. Which is why I liked it. Brb.

Me: ....................



I couldn't tell if he was joking or not. I finally asked later and he said he was.

Well then :mellow:

I read the first four chapters of A Long Road to Infamy to my younger sister and all she could say was, "It was good. I liked it. Also, I ship it."

 

Apparently, she would be really happy if my protagonist Holly was involved in a relationship with pretty much any of the male characters (other than Ellis, who we both dislike plenty) in the story. She simply stated, "I ship it," and when I asked what she was shipping, she said, "Everything."

 

That's my younger sister for you, folks.

I know, though I can't really contribute since all I get is - "Stop using big words" and the classic "Shut up, you talk too much."

Yeah ... people write all kind of things though while reading this topic I kind of realized my criticis were nice ones! ;)

I had someone once ask me 'is English your first language', without saying anything about the story. I was like okaaaaay .... does that mean the story is terrible or something????

And when I published a prequel to one of my stories the first review I got was 'please write a SEQUEL.'. Gee, thanks, you could at least read it before saying you are basically not interested in it, ya know? :D Or at least pretend you read it! :P
