When I was writing chapter 13, “Answers”, I had a little block.
This is when I usually give up, but not this time.
Instead I re-typed the scene. This has proved to be practical. Because when you re-type, you’re forced to see the scene again. You notice mistakes and it allows you to fix it.
So now chapter 13 is written and I’m working on chapter 14.

I’ve re-written all thirteen chapters of “Memories”. It took me two or three days, but it’s done. I just have to finish re-writing chapter fourteen and then, done. Not writing the whole story. I’ll only be done changing it to the first person point of view.

I’ve also made a trailer for it. I’m not really good at videos, you need lots of patience and I don’t have enough.
I’ve a million ideas for “Memories” and all I need to do is to put it down on paper, or computer screen as the case may be.
I’ll paste something that really stuck with me:

Sinclair Lewis was invited to talk to some students about the writer’s craft. He stood at the head of the class and asked, “How many of you here are really serious about being writers?”
A sea of hands shot up.
Lewis then asked, “Well, why aren’t you all home writing?” And with that he walked out of the room.

And this one is really good, too:

You will find, as many writers do, that someday you will stand in front of a window and just stare. Others may ask, “What are you doing?” And you will reply with just one word.

“Writing.”

I did a test on blogthings.com (I think that’s the site) and it determines what age you act. According to it, I act like a nineteen year old. I’m only fourteen. But it’s true, since September last year, the beginning of the school year, I’ve matured.
So has my writing. I had started writing when I was ten, but it wasn’t anything serious. And I never finished the stories. I kept this up until finally… I got serious. I realized my over-active imagination could be controlled through writing. This break-through was in December.
Before, my imagination…, it got me into trouble. But now, all that excess is directed at my stories.
My friends don’t understand how I find time to write so much AND read so much. They barely have time to relax.
They also can’t keep up with my stories, Rosaleen’s reaction was “You’ve started another story? And you wrote 11 000 words on your first story? Wait… You’re writing four stories?”
She doesn’t even have time to check her emails.
She also writes and has finally started a new story, it’s really good. But, as per usual, she won’t put it on fiction press. She doesn’t believe me when I tell her it would get loads of reviews.
Anyway, enough rambling.
I’ll do the test again so I can get the html code and paste it here.
