The following was inspired by a writing exercise from The English Emporium. Check them out, they’ve got a lot of great resources for students, teachers, and writers.
Every year since Robert Daniels had entered school, he had never been defined by a label. He wasn’t a jock, even though he did play sports, he wasn’t a geek, even though he indulged in science fiction comic books and he wasn’t a hipster, even though he was very good at being ironic. Robert Daniels was undefined, and therefore he felt that he was nobody. This year however, Robert decided that he was going to get a label. He devised a plan that would hopefully help him crawl up the social ladder. Robert was going to spend the first week back at high school being, whoever he wanted to be.

Till next time,
I can’t believe that in only two months, my blog has reached up to fifty followers. That’s just…wow. I feel like I should buy a cake or something. I know that I post a lot of quotes and things, but that’s because I’m a perfectionist when it comes to my writing. Okay, I guess that I should go into a little more depth about that…basically I over edit and analyse things that I write. I’ll probably do that with this, but I’m just going to pretend this is more of a journal entry, so it doesn’t have to be formal, and follow a specific structure. Well, I’ve been meaning to post a few short stories and poems on here that I’ve written. I write these like everyday, so I figure I might as well publish a couple on my blog. I’m going to probably post an actual…snippet of something later today. I don’t know if I am going to edit it or not…it was really just a writing exercise so, I don’t think it matters. I’d love to give you guys a taste of like…the first draft. You know, where mistakes are supposed to happen, and things are a little messy. I just like seeing things progress from just an idea to…a finished product. So I think I’ll try that later today. Anyways thank you so much for following my blog. I know I rambled on there a little bit, but I’m just trying not to be too formal. Again thanks for following me. I really appreciate it, and for those who I am following, I love reading your blogs they are awesome and so inspiring. Thanks!

I decided to create a survey in order to find out which point of view most authors prefer. The data collected will be followed up with a blog sometime next week.
