The Canterbury Tales


The Canterbury TalesThe Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I don’t really like this style of writing, mostly because I’m not a fan of verse. The other reason I didn’t necessarily like this was because some of the stories were just kind of, vulgar, and really disgusting. I read this for British Literature in school, and we had to do projects on it, and I don’t really know why I disliked it as much as I did. I mean was it interesting in some parts, but others it was too much, or just wasn’t finished.

I guess it was just not my style…

NaNoWriMo 2011


Hey all so NaNoWriMo starts this Tuesday and I’m totally freaking out about it! I can’t wait but then again I’m so stressed, I have to finish a college essay and get it edited and then re-write and submit. So I’m a little bit stressed right now because not only that, I have homework on top of it all.

So the point is… If I’m not reviewing books or doing much of anything on here, that’s why… I’m sorry, if you have any special requests you can just post a comment and I’ll try to post on it if I have time. But other than that, I’m going to busy… Sorry again if you’re waiting for something.

Apples in New York


So I was bored and I found this contest on Figment.com, well I was originally going to post this so that you guys could enter the contest as well but I lost track of time and didn’t realize just when the contest ended. I got mine in before then however, and if you feel like reading something or feel like joining a really awesome writing community you should go check it out.

My contest entry  is here: http://figment.com/books/149054-Apples-in-New-York and you should check it out. If you click on the tag you can get the rest of the stories submitted. I highly recommend you read some of them, not just mine because some are really good. And if you like them I suggest you heart them, though you have to get a figment account to do that. But it’s worth it, because the site is really quite fun. If you want the original stipulations for the contest and much more you should go to the contests tab on the top of the site.

In other news, the NaNoWriMo site is up and running and is reset for the next round of Nano… yay! 17 days! I you wanna do it you should go sign up at http://www.nanowrimo.org OR if you are 17 or younger go to http://www.ywp.nanowrimo.org for the Young Writer’s Program. It is very fun, and I am attempting the impossible. I’m doing two at once. So that should be interesting… I’ll keep you posted. Hope you all are having fun writing, reading, or other fun stuff!
