WordCrafters 3 Chapter 3

Hello everyone!

I hardly ever post writing stuff on my blog anymore. I’m not a huge writer, but sometimes it can be fun. My sister started a thing called WordCrafters a while ago and the third round started last month. Yesterday I wrote the third chapter and thought I’d post it on here for you all to see. (You can see chapters 1 and 2 here.) Continue reading “WordCrafters 3 Chapter 3”

AAWC Story #2

Hello guys! Today I have my AAWC story. 🙂
The challenge was ‘photograph’ and I used my team’s name (eagle) in the story.


I listened to the rain drizzle down the sides of the tent. The trees made creaking sounds in the gentle wind and every now and then lightening would light of the night sky, though it was not accompanied by thunder. Continue reading “AAWC Story #2”

AAWC Story: Teach Me How to Fly

Hello guys, I’m here today with an AAWC story for all of y’all. (By the way, I rarely use “y’all” in real life, I just had an urge. XD ) Misty is hosting this challenge, and for the first one I was supposed to use the word ‘reflection’ in it. I could also use the name of my team in my story to get bonus points, so I put in plenty of eagles (I’m on Team Eagle 😉 ). Continue reading “AAWC Story: Teach Me How to Fly”

Book Review: Anne of Ingleside

 

anne of ingleside.jpg

Hey guys! I was supposed to write a review for school, so I thought why not post it on here? 😀 I wrote this a while ago. 😉


Title: Anne of Ingleside (Book #6 of the Anne of Green Gables Series)

Author: L.M. Montgomery

Published: 1939

Number of Pages: 277

Genre: Novel

Summary: Anne is now living at Ingleside with Gilbert, their five, soon to be six, children and Susan Baker, their faithful handmaiden for fifteen years. The children come upon many adventures and mishaps including a ‘GLOOMY HOUSE’, a new baby sister, and a journey of six miles alone in the night.

Review:

Anne of Ingleside is the sixth book in the Anne of Green Gables series, but in my opinion, it is one of the best. This book covers the childhood of Anne’s six children: Jem, Walter, Nan and Di, Shirley, and Rilla and all their mischief and mistakes. All of their stories are very cleverly told and it is hard to set this book down in the middle of a chapter.

L. M. Montgomery wrote the book in the point of view from both Anne and her children. While they don’t actually narrate the story, they each have their own chapters that tell about the adventures in a way that makes you sympathize with the children.

There is no real main character- there is not even a huge plot- but it is just as interesting as any other book with a full plot. Really all the author wants is to tell about the children, sometimes stringing in larger parts that involve all of them, and sometimes just giving each child its own problem. They usually come to their beloved mother (Anne) with their problems and Anne will tell them what to do next time.

I believe the author meant to write about Anne’s children in sort the same style she wrote about Anne herself in the first book. And I think she did that very well. The writing is not hard at all to read, but it still is a very good book. She does sometimes spend a bit too much time on topics that are not quite so interesting as others, but the way she tells things makes it worth reading every part.

I think Anne of Ingleside is one of my favorite books and I highly recommend reading it. Of course you should read the five books before it, but do not stop after the first one or you will miss many lovely stories.


That was a little harder than I thought it might be! Did you enjoy this review? Have you read any of the Anne books?

Goodbye for now!

Jamie Gillest ~ Chapter 8

megan 057

And everyone asks, ‘what on earth is Jamie Gillset??

Hehe. Heh. Ho. Hum. Oh dear.

I’m guessing a lot of you don’t remember the last chapter, and if I’m right, you’ll need to go HERE to see the chapters I have written so far. But then come back, because I haven’t added this chapter to there yet. 😉

Whew! After all that explaining, I think I’m ready to start. Here we go!

       “So, since you were going to the waterfall before you bumped into me, would you like it if I took you there?”  Jessica was washing the plates in the basin of water.

“Ooh! That sounds great!”  Jamie loved waterfalls.  Actually, she liked everything about water.  That was why she liked summer best of the seasons, because you could play with water all you wanted.

“That’s great! I need a new supply of fresh water anyway.”

Jamie helped Jessica dry the plates and put them away. Then Jessica got a big blue barrel thing that was on wheels and lifted it out of the trap door.

“This is to carry my water in.  I found it at a farm store in town and got two of them.  I leave one here to use for other things and then I take the other to get the water.  It works pretty good!” Jessica said.

They started their walk down to the river.  They passed the spot where they had picked berries earlier, a big hollow tree that had some emergency supplies in it that Jessica had stored away, and a poison ivy patch that they stayed far away from.

“It wouldn’t be too bad though.” Jessica told Jamie, “because we could wash our legs off in the stream and it probably wouldn’t itch.”

In about twenty minutes they arrived at a river.  It was a small river  Jamie would have called it a stream because it was only about five feet wide.   The waterfall was also small, but it was big enough for Jamie. Many little streams poured into puddles on the ledges on the waterfall and then back down into the river. Moss and a few flowers were growing on rocks.

“Do you want to stick your feet in?” Jessica asked.

Jamie untied her shoes and stuffed her socks into them.  She slipped her feet into the water.

“Brr!” Jamie immediately took them back out. “Wow that’s cold!”

“It feels good up in that little pool on the waterfall.”  Jessica said, pointing the spot the little waterfalls poured into.

“Yeah, but how do you get up there?”

Jessica started climbing up the bank beside the waterfall.  “Like this!” she said.

“Wait for me!”  Jamie was already putting on her tennis shoes.

She climbed up the bank until she got to Jessica.  Then they both climbed up until they were right across from the pool.  They climbed over and sat down on a fairly dry rock.

“Now put your feet in the water!”  Jessica said.

Jamie did.  It was a lot warmer than the moving water, but still pretty cold.

After they had sat there a while Jessica walked over to a boulder and got a fishing rod that had been behind it.

“Have you ever gone fishing?” She asked Jamie.

“No! I haven’t.” Jamie’s father loved to fish, but strangely, she had never gone with him on his fishing trips.

“I will catch a few, and then I’ll show you how, sound good?”

“Yeah, that sounds great!”

“But first we need to further up stream until we get to the pond, there are millions of fish over there!” Jessica stuck her fishing rod in the barrel-on-wheels and nodded to Jamie.

It isn’t very far,” she said. “Just about a five minute walk.

It was actually seven minutes according to Jamie’s watch, but she didn’t say anything.

Jessica picked up a medium sized rock and set it aside. She proceeded to pick up the three fat worms that lay wriggling underneath.

“What are those for?” asked Jamie.

Jessica looked at Jamie, almost in horror.

“You mean you don’t know?!” she asked.

“N-no, should I?” Jamie felt like a dunce, but she really didn’t know what the worms were for.

“Sorry,” Jessica looked a little embarrassed at herself. “I guess since you haven’t ever gone fishing, you probably wouldn’t know.”

“I don’t.”

“I use worms for fishing! I just poke them onto my hook, and the fish gobble them right up, along with my hook of course.”

“Eww! You mean to say that you just kill those poor worms?”

Jamie knew she shouldn’t have said that.

“People have to eat!! If animals didn’t die, then we would never eat!”

“We could be vegetarians.” Jamie could have slapped herself.  She had just gotten to know Jessica three hours ago and here she was, trying to pick a fight.

“Yeah, we could. But we don’t have to! We are allowed to eat animals, for gracious sakes! And are you telling me you are more worried about the worm than the fish?” Jessica was really ticked off.

“Sorry, I guess you’re right.”

Jessica mumbled something and went on picking up rocks and scooping up the worms.


Did you enjoy it? I haven’t edited thoroughly yet, so it’s not the most wonderful. 🙂 Thanks for reading it anyway!

Here is my chapter. I mixed a bunch more fairytales into this one! 😀 I linked to myself just so that Allison wouldn’t have to. 😉


Chapter 11 by Megan

Alalia was closing her eyes when she dropped onto a hard surface. She heard a groan from Jacob and opened her eyes.

“What’s wrong?” she asked him.

“Can’t you see? This must be Cinderella’s Prince’s castle. Look! There’s a shoe!”

He was right. A huge white castle stretched up into the night sky. We were on the steps where a dainty glass slipper lay.

“Shh, get behind this pillar, I hear something!” she motioned to Jacob.

Alalia expected to see the prince come down the stairs, but instead there was a tall young man with crossed legs. He was riding on a… magic carpet?

“Phew!” Jacob whispered, “At least he’s not totally princess-y!”

Aladdin, at least she assumed that’s who he was, flew down to the glass slipper. He picked it up tenderly and gazed at it. Except he didn’t exactly gaze at the slipper itself. It was more like he gazed at something inside the slipper. Next he did something that surprised them both. He took the shoe and shook it above his hand. Out spilled a bean- a bean shimmering with glitter and glistening with beautiful rainbow colors. He took the seed and carefully placed it on the ground.

“Bippity-boppity-BOO!” he cried.

Immediately a plant sprung up. Jacob gave a shout of surprise and Aladdin whirled around. Alalia froze.

“Don’t worry,” he said kindly, “come with me. Pinocchio has given me this magical bean that will transport you into another world!”

Alalia drew in her breath. Is this ‘other world’… our world? She wondered. But what if it wasn’t? What if it was another crazy world?

“I’d rather not,” she told him politely.

Jacob stared at her and whispered, “Alalia, earth! It could be earth! Our world!”

Alalia gave in. She had no idea how she would get back to her parents. If there was a possible way, she would most definitely take it.

“Okay, I’ll come. But are you sure you will be able to take us back to this place if we want to?”

“Not sure,” Aladdin said, grinning at her, “but Pinocchio’s nose didn’t grow when he said that this,” he held out a fluorescent pink bean, “would take me back to his house. So I’m not sure, I’m positive.”

As he spoke a flower began to bloom. It was a beautiful purple flower that looked very familiar to Alalia. Then she realized why. It was one of the flowers that had been growing at the edge of the cave. She was sure that this would take her back!

Aladdin told Jacob and Alalia to climb onto the magic carpet. Thankfully it was a large one and they all fit quite well.

“Totally cool, dude!” Aladdin yelled. Then to us, “those are the magic words.”

A green mist surrounded them. Alalia heard birds singing as they tumbled onto lush green grass.

Another Story from of Old – The Magical Jelly Bean

Here is another story from of old! I think I wrote this when I was a little older. 🙂 If you want to see my other one, click HERE.


The Magical Jelly Bean

By Megan

One fine morning Kathy who was 10 woke up & looked out her window. “Why!” she said, “I don’t remember that hill being there!” After school Kathy went out to have a good look at the hill. “Oh!” She cried, “Why it’s a giant jelly bean!” “Shucks!” She said, “The flavors lime. I wish it was Bubble Gum.” Suddenly the jelly bean turned pink! “Oh! Goodie!” She said, “I will just take teeny weenie bite.” “She took a nibble, “Mmm” She said. Just then the place where she took a nibble grew back! “I must get Julia!” She raced over to her house. Come quickly. She called to her twin sister. They raced over to the jelly bean. “Ohhhhh” Said Julia. “Just say what flavor you want! Caramel!” Julia said. It turned brown.

“Wow!” Said Julia, taking another bite. “This is great, we should slide down this!” “Yes we should.” Kathy said. They took turns sliding down the jelly bean. After a little while they grew tired of that, they climbed to the top of the jelly bean to rest a bit. “Wouldn’t it be great if it could fly?” Asked Julia. “We could always try.” Said Kathy. “O.K.” said Julia. “1 2 3 FLY!” They said. The jelly bean lifted off the ground, sprouted wings and popped up seat belts! “Here we go!” Shouted Kathy. “Lets go to the stream by our house.” Said Kathy. They flew over to the stream. Plop! The jelly bean landed in the mud. “Oh no!” said Kathy, “ when we go home we should wash it.” They played in the stream till dinner. When they landed Kathy’s Mummy came running out the door yelling: “sakes alive! What’s that thing?”. “it’s a magical jelly bean!” They yelled. After dinner they washed the jelly bean, than they went to bed. After that every day after school Kathy & Julia went to play with the jelly bean. Once they went on vacation with it!

 

The End

 



Funny! Here are the illustrations I made for it.
