Occasionally (okay, a lot of the time) I will sneak off to my room to write when I should be doing other things. My room is painted bright pink and has a lot of purple and turquoise polka dots. I usually forget to open my blinds which gives my room a secluded feel. Absolutely perfect for writing.
But when mom calls me downstairs she always says something along the lines of "How about you come out of your pink cave and help us?" (For some reason, I always find myself in the "pink cave" when my family starts doing chores. I'm not sure how that happens. Honest.)
Anyway, what better title for a writing blog? Next time mom says "Stop writing in the pink cave and do your chores," I'll be able to say, "I wasn't writing in the pink cave, I was writing on the pink cave!" Sure, that might not help lessen my chores, and sure, it will only work once, but hey, it'll be funny.
Of course, mom reads this blog so I probably just blew it. Oh well, it was fun to write!
Speaking of writing, that is what this blog is about! I love to write. Always have, but I get the feeling that I will never know everything about writing. Writing is cool like that. You will constantly be learning how to do it.
The only thing better, and more complex, than writing is Story. Story is a different art altogether, and it has more to learn than even writing does.
I am learning more about writing and Story every day. I wanted to make a place where I could write down the things I have learned to help me remember. You might find it interesting, you might not. That's okay. The point of this blog is to help me remember the things I learn. Some of my posts might be quick; "I really liked how so-and-so did this-or-that in their book!" But more often than not, the posts will probably be long and rambly like this one. If you find them interesting, or even (gasp) helpful, fantastic! If you have any tips you want to share with me, double fantastic!
In summary, I love to write, I love story, I hope you do too, and I should probably go help mom with dinner.
