BHS- Where you want to go, if you love to write!
So the year’s come to an end and what a year it’s been. Let me just start by saying, I wrote a book!! Yes, that’s right, a real life book is sitting in my home, and a few other people’s houses as well. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t proud because those 20 000 words were some of the hardest words I’ve ever written. I was swamped with planning and choosing which words to go where, and don’t even get me started on the unexpected writer’s block that would sneak up on me at any given moment. All to say, I couldn't have gotten through this without my friends and most importantly my writing teacher, Ms. Melinda Cochrane. She taught me that it takes dedication to become a writer and when times get tough you need to keep pushing through. She also helped me see the beauty in writing and how freeing a few words on paper can be. I admire her perseverance and talent and I can’t wait to see her name on the New York Times Bestseller list. Because I know she’ll get there and when she does I’ll look down at her name and think, that, that’s my writer’s room teacher and I’ll remember how honoured I was to have her teach me almost all I know about writing. So now I’ll be off resting in the sun or gallivanting through a field that I’m most certainly not supposed to be in, whilst I gear up for the onslaught of grade 10. But before I go, I would just like to thank Ms. Cochrane for the gift she gave me; the gift of writing.
