The Do’s and Don’ts about Reading

The Do’s and Don’ts in reading , I must say are pretty tempting. I sometimes do them , not going to lie! Sometimes , you feel like shutting a book down and your on chapter 3 and you think it’s boring… don’t shut the book down! I am guessing that there are MORE interesting things coming , if only you read more … Maybe you might regret putting the book down afterall!

THE DOS ABOUT READING :

  1. Pick a book that intrigues you. Not by the cover , but by the blurb. If you pick a book not your type , then it won’t help!
  2. Recommend it to friends if you think that it’s DEAD good! I am sure that they will think the same too…
  3. Read it , read it , read it!!!!!!! ( Obviously , duh ).

THE DON’TS ABOUT READING :

  1. Don’t pick a book that doesn’t intrigue you.
  2. Please read it 🙁
  3. Don’t stop halfway through the book! I assure you , better things are yet to come!

Pencil

Just an ordinary pencil

Gripped on a child’s hand.

It’s lead writes elegantly

With pride and honor to be part of the work.

Just an ordinary pencil

Gripped on an adult’s hand.

The lead quickly dashes through the paper

As it quickly scribbles below the signature.

Just an ordinary pencil

Hiding in a pencilcase

Hiding in the dark

Which can’t be seen…

Just an ordinary pencil

Floats on top of a desk.

It’s lonely , it’s just there..

It’s waiting to be used.

If you saw me

If you saw me far away , probably if you went in a helicopter and looked down at Derby , you would see me. I was so tiny , like a strand of hair. I bet you wouldn’t really see me , unless if you were next to me. I would stare at the sky and see the orangey yellow object roaming around .  It’s little “antennas” span around and around. I always thought that it would whip one of the clouds and the water coming from the cloud would eventually leak. I was only 7 years old that time , and right now being 12 , I felt really stupid that I thought about that. But sometimes when your little , I guess me and you have little imaginations that we thought and it must have revolved in our pea bodded heads.

To be honest , this took me 5 minutes to complete. Everything that I wrote is true , I did really think that helicopters in the sky would whip the clouds! But unfortunately , it never happened. But below , I want you to do a favour! Check it out! vvvvv

  • Rate this out of 10! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
  • Anything that I could work on? ( P.S , don’t write anything offensive! If your critiscing , give it as a nice  point , not say it really meanly. )
  • Write down a comment with a nown and an object. For example , I want you to a story about school ( noun ) and a pencil ( object ). Best idea wins!

Thanks guys for reading , I am really proud of this and I hope you are too. 🙂

Improving Jacqueline Wilson’s Queenie?

Recently , I have become a huge Jacqueline Wilson fan and not too long ago , I picked up a book called “Queenie”. I really love it , but I want to see if I could improve the first paragraph. In Jacqueline Wilson’s text , it says :

I lived with my nan. It was wonderful. Just the two of us in our cosy basement flat. We both has a bedroom. Mine was a little box room, and I didn’t really have a proper bed , just a couch with a pillow and an eiderdown , but Nan turned it into a Wendy house for me , with a lovely Tinkerbell lampshade. She let me keep the light on all night because I was afraid of the dark. Sometimes I crept into bed with Nan in her room , but she never minded.

So now , I decided to improve her beginning paragraph.

Me and my nan lived in our cosy basement flat which really didn’t really have much things in it but I didn’t mind . Living in it was wonderful. We both had a bedroom which we stayed for most of the day. Mines was a room which was crammed and small like a medium sized box and a couch with a small pillow which was weak and frail. One of the chair legs had broken and the colour of the couch was fading away. It had tatted bits of felt and I saw the spongey foamy thing that you see if you ripped the colour off or something. Recently , Nan had turned it into a little cute Wendy house for me , with a lovely Tinkerbell lampshade. It always used to be my “little guidance” and it really helped me to sleep. I kept it all night and apparently , Nan didn’t really mind. She said,

“As long as you rest your head , then I really don’t mind you keeping it on all night , poppet. ”

Sometimes , I would sneak into Nan’s room and stay in her bed. She was there , with me , always.

 

How did you think I did? Did you like it? I would appreciate your thoughts. 🙂

Gollum – The Description

Gollum

 

He was a beast , a monster…

 

The Gollum was a monster. The monster that everyone knew. His raspy voice was threatening and piercing. He would scramble on top of rocks , panting… snarling… breathing heavily. Everyone knew the truth about Gollum. That he was a trickful beast and that he had harmed many animals in the forest. His spine popped up and down his back. His hands looked violent – bruises , cuts and blisters all covered his hands. Whenever he moved , his body contorted like a twisted twig , like it was about to break.

He is dangerous , perilous and full of hazard.

 

Come near him , I dare you…

The Worry Website by Jacqueline Wilson

I find this book really interesting. One of these stories made me think , ” Why did you do that? ” or ” If only if I was in your shoes and I could feel like what your feeling right now…”
This book is really great detailed and it’s really good! You might laugh at some parts too…
If you read it , comment! I would love to hear your thoughts on it. 🙂

I watched him run…

He blankly stared at me. I stared at him back. I moved my eyes up and down and saw his fingers trembling. It was only summer and he was wearing a jacket , a scarf and boots…

I don’t know what happened to him.. he just seemed quiet , alone , deserted…

He sighed , turned away and ran. He ran through the trees , non-stop. I watched him run and run and run… Had something gotten into him?

If so , what was it? I needed to know and fast!
