  • Writing a book?

    I have started working on a book (again). I did have gotten started a couple of times, but didn’t really get very far. This year, on January 1st, I started writing with the goal of writing 100 words every day. So far that has worked out well for me. The first few days, it was…

  • Chapter 8: Naming the cubs!!!!!

    The mother lion did want me to name her and her cubs! First, I got to know each one, to find out what name would suit them. The shy one who had stayed in the cave for a while, the really beautiful one, I thought the name Taylor would suit her best. Once Taylor came…

  • Chapter 7: The Feastings and Festivities begin!

    I offered to cook the fish and catch more. The lions accepted the offer gratefully. Me and Gale collected some firewood for the fire. Since Gale didn’t know how to start a fire, I had to start it with a rock and a stick. Turns out not only my legs are fast and strong, because…

  • Lost in the Stars: Chapter 2

    That next morning, I was in my room pretending to be asleep when my mom came in my room and tried to wake me up. I pretty much ignored her. (Sorry mom!) I was tired and I hadn’t slept well last night. My mom went back downstairs for a while and then started calling my…

  • My Writing ‘Schedule’

    My writing schedule, is really not a schedule.  I have tried to keep this blog active with posts by writing in spurts and scheduling those posts for specific times.  I think consistency is good, and with the scheduled postings, I feel like I can be a little more consistent. Unfortunately, my actual writing times are…

  • Lost in the Stars: Chapter 1

    It wasn’t always this way. It used to be better. The people were kinder. The quality of life was better. The volcano hadn’t erupted. I’m Yumiku. I am what two-legged pale creatures that destroy the earth would call a monster. I’m nice, though I don’t really look like it. I like to read. I like…

  • Chapter 6: The Confrontation

    I heard a loud, deep growling. It was shaking the Earth like a Sokrokatata shaking its prey. The creature prowled towards me and Gale. I heard its footsteps. Or should I say pawsteps?! I was about to scream as loud as I could, but Gale slapped his hand across my mouth before I could. I…

  • Chapter 5: The Big Scare

    I slowed to a halt. Gale had caught up to me and we were both breathing heavily. “Why are we here!?!?!?!!” Gale exclaimed frantically. “Why are you here? You didn’t have to follow me, you dork!” I said, exasperated. “You’re my friend, you idiot! I still care about you! I’m not going to let you…

  • Chapter 4: New Companion

    Well, now I have to rest. I’m exhausted. On my way, I see Gale. “Hey Georgie!” He said. “Where are you going? Where’s everyone else?” “Hey Gale” I say, running over to him. “I don’t know where everyone else is either…” Gale seems worried. “Do you think we’re the last leprechaun kids left in Lepcania?”…

  • Chapter 3: On the Way

    I was feeling down. I didn’t see the rainbow yet. To tell the truth, I was scared. I just kept on walking and hoped I wouldn’t die. Little surprises would probably come, like the poop-spitting clovers, wild, ferocious animals, and leprechaun traps. I wanted to make my family proud though. I could just hear them…
