Oh yeah.... I have a blog!






*tired sigh* why? Why am I blogging?!?! Oh it's just that the carrot owns me. I. Don't. Know. What. To. Blog. About!!!!! Grrrrrr.... This post is sooooo boring! Ugh! How's about a sneak peek at my NaNoWriMo novel? Yeah that's it! Here goes nothing!

I pulled my phone out of my pocket. Dead. I pushed the keyboard lock button out of habit. Dirt. Sun. Rock. That coke bottle has potential. I snapped a picture with my camera. Amarillo is a bit.... Erm, dry. It hasn't rained here in at least three months. And probably won't for another four. Lord help us. I stuffed my camera into my yellow *well it was yellow about three years ago* bag and started back to my house. I saw a boy on roller-skates obviously showing off I scoffed. He was blonde and tall he did a little spin and winked I turned away dramatically my blue and brownish hair flipping limply behind me. THUMP. I ran into a tree and fell into the grass. Well that ought to run the stalker off. No such luck. "Hey blue hair! You ok?" No. "yea blondie, I'm just peachy."
"Um." he said holding up a smashed blue pile of glass and plastic ignoring my "blondie" comment. "is this your--" "My camera!" I shot to my feet *or tried to* a piercing pain like a needle stuck in my ankle and I sat back down with a plop. The boy offered a hand "I'm Jay." I grinned. "Xia." I said taking the hand. "I'll help you home." he offered, I looked down at the rollerblades "Are you sure you can skate me home?" "Yea." he replied "I'm pretty good with them." he started skate stomping while I leaned on his shoulder. My house was pretty close and my ankle felt better I stood up strait and started worrying about my camera. "I'm sorry about your camera." he said still gripping my hand it's like he read my mind. "it's not your fault." I coaxed. Though it totally was his fault. "I'll get you a new one." he said. Did he not know that camera cost 200 dollars? "How would you be able to? That camera was pretty expensive." " I'll even get you a better one my.... Um parents have money." I stepped onto the street corner. "Come over Monday my house is the purple one two streets down." "ok whatever blondie."
Sure that'll happen. "watch it Tia." he warned "Xia!" I said halfway down the street. I pushed the red door to my house open. It creaked. Loudly. My older sister leaned against the stairwell smirking "you like him." she taunted. "He pushed me into a tree and broke my camera." she rolled her eyes still smirking. "and then he walked you home and asked you out." she had to do this? Now? "Oh just go fix your hair or something Cait!" I stomped off into my room and pushed the door closed. My room was small I had a bed made with black stained wood. A blanket on it with a black and blue paisley print. My walls were painted teal but you wouldn't be able to tell because it was covered with black and white photos I took. On the floor was a beanbag chair *blue* and a lap desk *also blue* covered with papers and pens. On my bed was a black laptop. The screen was covered with files, Some entitled NOVEL others SHORT STORY CONTEST ENTRY12 or 13 and so on. I write. Like a lot and I have been since I could hold a pencil. "We need to go!" a voice said. A girl about my age materialized out of thin air "now!" she cried "go where? What?" I stuttered "the car. Away. Anywhere but here Xia!" she said grabbing my hand and practically dragging my out the door and into a blue limo. "where are you taking me?!" I struggled out of her grip but I was already in the car. A man in his thirties turned around from the drivers seat. "the safe house." he said as if that explained everything. I guess Jay won't be getting my visit Monday. "that boy was not to be trusted. Understand?" Am I that predictable or did I miss some big mind reading 101 class?! We drove in tense silence. We stopped at a white building and I was yanked out of the car and pushed towards the door. The white building was cold. I was given a blue plaid skirt and a white shirt. A woman in a black pant-suit showed me to a room where I changed. The woman came back and gave me a schedule and watch.

6:00 PGEP training
7:00am breakfast
7:30am equipment
8:00am tech training
9:00am invisibility
10:00am fighting
11:00am clean up
12:00am lunch
1:00pm survival tech.
2:00pm clean up
3:00pm fitness
4:00pm meditation
5:00pm mind reading training
6:00pm bed

What. The. Heck. There were ALOT of things wrong with this. I didn't want to test the woman's patience so I picked the worst issue with this. "Bed? At six?" "Da." the woman replied in a thick Russian accent. "you guys must really be party animals." I retorted. I saw a flash of pale skin and nails and my arms were pinned to the wall and the woman's nails dug into my skin. "children are seen not heard." she said grumbling. She let go of my hands leaving three tiny marks on each arm. "Go to bunk five and STAY THERE." she ordered. I stomped back into the room and she glared at me with catlike eyes until I was under the covers. I tossed and turned all night. It seems I finally got to sleep the second I was supposed to wake up. I had no idea were I was. I got out of bed and watched fifty girls my age bustling and whispering and pointing. At me. I fingered my hair. I guess they've never seen blue hair before. A second later it's like a bell rang in their minds. They all stood up straight in a tight jerk and walked in perfect line out the door. I didn't follow. The woman with the russian accent came in with her hands poised around a long thin stick, and I don't think it was made for peaceful use. "come with me.... Girl." she said girl like she would have said evil. I obeyed silently. The woman said her name was Cara but I would only call her by ma'am. We walked in tired silence into a sad black room with a chair in the middle like you would see in a hair salon. Cara walked head held high into the room and stood behind the chair. She motioned me to sit in the chair. I did. An hour past and my hair was blonde. "You have training in one hour." "what about P-um GG? or whatever?" "That." she replied "is for the boys." I walked "outside" aka a glass room where I was greeted by pointing.... And staring. A girl with black hair and a light complexion walked over to me. Eyes diverted. To her. "ignore them." she said. Again with the mind reading?

And that's it! Hope you like it! ~and remember to eat your carrots!

This. Day. Could. NOT. get. Any. Stinking. Better.





This morning I got up at 7 to go ride my bike around the bad neighborhood and deliver lunches to children who can't get them. It was amazing. There the best moment ever is when a little three year old girl in tattered clothes and covered in dirt can smile ear to ear and say "thank God bless you!" it just makes your whole day worth while. After that I sat and wrote out some outlines for my novel *WHICH I LOVE*. I finish that and stroll over to my blog and *BAM!* Beth STINKING Revis FOLLOWS my blog!!!! If you don't know who she is she is one of my fave authors she wrote this book

Iceypicks: blurb it.



Here is my back cover blurb for Beth Revis' AtU




~and remember to eat your carrots!

Kirsten miller interview!!!!

Here is my interview with AMAZING author (the author of the first novel I EVER read) Kirsten Miller!




Carrot: How do you deal with writers block?

Kirsten: I don’t believe in writer’s block. I do believe that there are days/weeks/months when it seems almost impossible to get anything decent down on paper. But you just have to push yourself! Writing isn’t meant to be easy. In fact, it’s one of the hardest jobs you can have. But you have to remember that it is a job. And I promise—if you stick it out, your inspiration will eventually return.

Carrot: What was the best "fan encounter" on tour?

K: Aside from meeting you in Austin? (See below.) I love it when people tell me that my books have inspired them to create art of their own. Perhaps they’ve written stories. Or made films. Or painted something amazing. And when “fans” share their work with me, it always makes my day. I have a bulletin board above my desk that’s covered with “fan” art. It makes me happy every time I sit down to write.

Carrot: Who was the guest judge in the fiction contest?

K: A fellow writer who has asked that his identity remain secret. Ha.

Carrot: Darkness Dwellers teasers?

K: Let’s see. What secrets can I share without giving too much away? Half of the book takes place in New York. The other half is set in the catacombs beneath Paris. (Which I once visited—alone. Quite scary!) Betty is the hero—though all the Irregulars play big roles. And Molly Donovan (my favorite delinquent, who’s based on my best friend in high school) makes a surprising and triumphant comeback.


Carrot: Who are the awesomest people you ever got a ride from in Austin Texas after zombies vs. Unicorns?

K: Ha! You guys, of course! You saved my bacon that night. Andrea Cremer and I would have been forced to hoof it all the way back to our hotel. And I was too tired to have made it more than a block. The police would have found me passed out on the side of the road.

Carrot: How long have you wanted to write before you wrote Kiki?

K: I can’t remember a time when I didn’t write. I was concocting strange stories in kindergarten. But I never expected to earn a living as an author. I’m still surprised that it’s possible!

Carrot: Favorite song?

K: I’m not sure I have a single favorite. But I love Miss You by the Rolling Stones. I think it’s the greatest song ever written about New York City. And you know how much I love New York!

Carrot: Any advice for aspiring writers?

K: Sit down. Turn on the computer. Stay in your chair until you have something great (even if it’s just a sentence or two). It may take an hour. It may take a whole day. But persistence is what separates those who write from those who want to write. (Some people call it “butt power.”)

And now a question for my uncoolreaders:
What book should I read next? Tell me in the comments.

Iceybooks: if I was Amy from ACROSS THE UNIVERSE by Beth Revis contest entry

This is not a normal post but I hope it will be interesting anyways:
If I was Amy I would probably jump out of the hatch into the stars.... But THAT would NOT make for a good sequel (the title would be something along the lines of: aaaaaaggggghhhhhhh!!!!!!! XD) so if it was a book here's a short story from Amy's point of view:
*********SPOILER ALERT**********
*********SPOILER ALERT**********
*********SPOILER ALERT**********
*********SPOILER*******************
********************ALERT***********



I stared out into the stars confused. I hate Elder for unplugging me. HOW? HOW? HOW COULD HE BE SO SELFISH?!?!?!?! I cried silently to myself, but somewhere a tiny voice deep inside of me whispered: Was it really just because he loves me?
Was it just out of blind love? And then louder: should I forgive him?
All questions. This ship is full of unanswered questions. And then something strange happened the little whisper turned into an aggressive question:
DO I LOVE HIM?!?!? and a whisper again: "yes." I said aloud but very softly through tears and then I cried, cried until the stars blurred into a swirl and I fell asleep by the hatch and as close to home as I ever will be again.


hope you like it and I hope I win thanks!!!!~and remember to eat your carrots!

This is big news (FOR ME) =P







I said it before but just in case you didn't see it I got complaints because you couldn't comment anonymously or without a google account but I fixed it and I'm glad because I LOVE COMMENTS and suggestions tell me if there is anything I can do to make my blog better. Do you want more book reviews? more interviews? more quotes? Tell me in the comments. ~and remember to eat your carrots!

Spontaneous book review time!!!!!

Thins morning I just woke up and decided to start reviewing books {SPONTANEOUSLY} so I'm going to do just that!



The book is "when you reach me" by Rebecca Stead

It has roughly 200 pages {give or take 10}
In the book miranda is a sixth grader in the 1970s. After Miranda loses her best friend Sal she starts to find anonymous notes that speak of time travel and friends on danger. At first she ignores them like a joke but when the notes ring true she has to write back.
This book was really good!!! I read it in one day I couldn't put it down I love it and would definitely read it again! ~and remember to eat your carrots!
