blog 6

When we first started out I had no clue what I was going to write about. I was definitely leaning towards the fiction side. My first idea/ concept was that a team of astronauts were going to set up a base on the moon. When they would get there, there would be a bunch of aliens trying to kill them. I figured it be to long and hard to try to have a bunch of different aliens, so I changed that to only one super alien. At the end of my original idea, they would fight off all the aliens and make it back home. But one would make it back with them. I changed the ending because you did not want the story to be left on a cliff hanger. I am surprised that my story came out decent for the amount I had to do in little time. I made the whole thing up in one night. I do not like how there is not a lot of action scenes or how the story gives a somewhat boring vibes at part. It is not a story that is going to keep readers stuck on the books. Also, the idea wasn’t anything original. It was kind of just a basic ufo story. I am done with book one. It was not what I expected at all. I saw the movies before reading the book and the movies were definitely better. Still do not have a second book yet but my first book definitely will effect my decision on what I want to read. The book is never like the movie so I will try to stay away from that. I will probably pick out a good mystery book because then I have to pay attention to find solve the mystery.

My bad for writing this blog so late I had work everyday during fair and I was just to tired to do anything lol. When we first started to think of ideas for a story I was completely lost. So when I get home that night I look up good ideas for stories ( I know, so original ) . One of the ideas was about ufos and aliens and all that, so I decided I’d write about it. Still had no clue for a story but at least I had an idea. The activity’s in class helped shape story. Trying to write a story from nothing is really hard. I’ve never been the person that loves language arts or writing, so having to write a story is never fun. Each day we worked on certain aspects of our stories to try and develop everything better. I’ve been taught this in years past but never this deep. We analyzed books that I would’ve never thought had any meaning to it. But after going through and seeing how it works helped me out when making my story. It made it a lot easier to break everything down and slowly one by one put the story together. When I had to write in the past, I never really cared a whole lot of making the story have meaning and all the little details and symbols. I have everything I need to put my story together, all I have to do is finish it. It doesn’t say to have a certain word count so I think I should be good. I would try to make it to 350, but I still have to put together a story tonight.
