    Bookstores Are Depressing

    So, I walked into Barnes&Noble last Thursday with my mom. I had gotten a lot of money for my birthday, and, instead of saving it, I wanted to buy more books. My desire to become an author was fresh and strong from my newest inspiration (and lastest addiction), Edgar...

    So I started a novel from a bunch of short

    stories I wrote, so far I have written 2 1/2 pages. It is my version of a modern day merman story, a gender bender of the little mermaid if you will.

    I just know not how to attain it. I am a gifted writer according to many people, but writing longer stories isn't my forte. My imagination is strong enough fodder, but my attention span lasts for a few pages, perhaps, and then flees elsewhere. Maybe with time, I will achieve...
