This is the last post The last two stunning stories and brilliant art from my first book. It'll be a short post - sort of like the last session with your therapist where they don't tell you you're fixed but don't want to see you anymore and to only come back in if you're in crisis...
Ramona and the Teddy Bear
One day when Ramona came home from school. Her Mother asked her to clean up her room so she could have a party for her firends. As Ramona was cleaning up her room she came across a box that said Ramona Happy Birthday From Mother. Just then she heard lots of footsteps coming up towarded her bedroom soon she could she her mother and her friends. When they were all there Ramona opened the prentnes from her friends and her Mother. When she opened she was happy that she had go what she wanted all her life a bear. The End.
Well. This one is a hot mess. Run on sentences. No punctuation. Friends spelled firends. And all I wanted all my life was a creepy bear with a hat ON his ears?!?
Aim higher, little ej. Higher!
One day Sue and Tom started to make a hide-out. When they were nearly done they ran out of wood for the top. While they were looking for wood a boy called Scot found the hide-out and made a marble track. Soon Sue and Tom came back. When they found Scot they said he could be in the club if he go some wood.
And, that's me done. With 'My Stories' and the posts about the mess that 'book' was. It's been an interesting therapy session for me. I am happy to know I've grown as a person - albeit not as and English student! My childhood was rough and, despite it all, I have turned out okay. And the parts that aren't okay, I have explanations for.
So, that's that.
Now, to wait for the next one and cross all body parts that I get an outstanding certificate for that one too!
The Swan in The Silver Lake.
One day in the woods as the sun shown down on a lake. on it there lived a swan. Her name was Sue. Sue had a friend who lived nearby. Every day Sue would visit her. But on Monday her friend wasn't there so Sue cried. Soon her friend Kate came back. when she saw Sue crying she too started to cry. But soon they broke into laughter.
When Sue and Kate went back they were so surprised because the lake had turned silver they fainted. But they recovered soon and were very happy.
Let's put the possible therapy session that needs to happen here aside here and look at the ongoing issues I've had with writing since childhood; Punctuation is still not yet a friend to me and, I have always had issues writing a middle.
I'm not going to call this story premise brilliant because it's not but, where is the middle? Why is Sue crying? What is the Swan doing in this story? I mean, it's there, it's in the title and then it's gone. And why does the lake turn silver and why, after fainting, does it make Sue and Kate happy?
What I Saw in the Mirror.
One morning I woke up looked in mirror and saw a witch. She looked so ugly I screamed. I did it so loud my friends heard and came running. The saw her and fainted. That night my friends stayed with me and we took turns looking at the mirror. And every day the mirror changed. The end.
Kids are mean.
Like, make fun of the kid from Kenya with an Afro and accent
And call her names and make her cry.
Like drop rocks on Brother's Afro at the bus stop
And laugh at the fact that the rocks bounced off
While he stood there crying.
Like ask the kid from Africa if they wore clothes
Or why they looked like a monkey
And then laugh when she cries.
Kids are mean.
They laugh when she cries.
My name is ej. I'm a girl. I say that because with the short hair and the short initials, folks aren't always sure. More brilliant insights to who I am in About me
