Play Time :)

1. Writing my play was fun and exciting. It was interesting trying to get energy and expressions worked in the play. At the start, I thought that it was going to be hard to get a minimum of 5 pages, but at the end it turned out to be easy. It was easy to come up with what they were saying. Trying to put expressions in, was a little difficult. I dont think that I would ever be interested in writing drama's. I enjoyed doing it for fun, but I could never do it for a job. I don't think that i have the creative mind to do this. Writing television scripts would be interesting. I don't think that its an easy job. It would take a lot of hard work and time to get one to be interesting.

If I could give advice to a child who was 10 years old, I tell them to be different and follow your heart. You don't need to do everything exactly like everyone else. Being different and stepping out of your comfort zone is something that you need to do. Be the kid who goes and makes new friends no madder what race or what they look like. Another piece of advice I would give them is to follow your heart. No madder what people are doing, do what you want to do not what they want. Stick up for yourself. If your heart says go do it, then go do it and have pride when you're doing it.

I think that these words have lasted this long for many different reasons. One reason is that it spread though out the universe and everyone was using it. If everyone uses it, then it will stay around because each generation will hear it again and again. I don't think anything I could every say would stick around and be used for years and years. I think that if you have something that sticks around for years, it would be a great honor and everyone would remember you. Nothing I say would be worth keeping around for that long.

Wait wait wait, nothing you say would be worth keeping???? OK, so maybe none of us are professional writers or anything, but that doesn't mean you're not writing anything of consequence!! You would be surprised at the different things you can get out of writing. When my mom was in college, she wrote a paper about my grandma's WWII experiences. At the time, she had no idea that my grandma would pass away when the grandkids were pretty young (I was in 6th grade), and now we keep using that paper to get to know my grandma and learn about her experiences. I know that's not quite the same as writing a novel that's so popular that Harvard kids write Sparknotes for it, but don't underestimate the things your writing can do.

It's definitely important to stick up for what you believe in, no matter what. I also agree that being out of one's comfort zone is necessary to learn new things.

I agree wholeheartedly with Stef. If I could put it in different words I would, but I can't. I do think I still have that ominous feeling of, there's no way anyone would want to read this, but who knows?
