Mr. French, I remember that at one point in time you said that you could never end a sentence with the word “to”. I’m writing an essay and I’ve ended a couple of sentences with the word “to”. I am very confused because to me they make perfect sense. For example: “The best lessons are learned from those you look up to.” Does the rule only apply to certain situations?? I am very confused because I am almost 100% positive that I’m right, but then again, I may not be.
The teacher is having us read it for class. She explained it and it pretty cool. She said how there are superstitions tied to the play and how you should never say Macbeth to a theater person. I don’t know if you’ve heard that one but I’m pretty sure you have.
I finished the book today. I can say that I really did like it. The answer to the mystery really did surprise me. The ending was in a way sad because i can see where Lisbeth is coming from. She finally eels something and the hope is immediately crushed by what she sees. I can see why she chooses to not eel anything. Feeling brings pain along with it, so is it worth not feeling nothing at all? Lisbeth never reveals anything about herself to anyone for fear of betrayal. Her whole life she has been as “weird” and I can see why. She refuses to answer any questions when she doesn’t feel like it. She shuts herself from the world and its pain. It’s a miserable life but if you never experienced happiness then how can you be miserable? You can’t.
Ok so I just read your review and i am so eager to read it. I forgot that you guys are still in school. I’m going to go to the public library tomorrow. Oh yea, something else that is different here (don’t think I’m bragging because I’m not) we started our Christmas break last Thursday.
Another thing, I finishes Rebbecca. The ending was very confusing. I thought it was written amazingly; there was just so much description! I liked it a lot. Like I said, the ending was confusing; I felt like I missed something. Right now, I am reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson (I’m pretty sure thats how you spell it). I haven’t gotten very far but I don’t feel like I should stop yet. I want to watch the movie but I’m going to wait until I finish the book.
i don’t know your emails.
I have officially finished my story. It turned out good. It is 23,476 words long and 31 pages in length. Are you guys sure you want to read it?
I’ll let you guys read it when I finish. I’m getting all funkily inside because the dead line is so close. I’m excited some people want to read it. Now instead of finishing it because of a grade, I’m motivated into finishing it so you guys can read it. I was getting bored with it but now I have random ideas popping into my head that I’m going to use. I love the word epiphany.
I think I would totally freak out if Hunger Games came out into a movie. I truly think I would go crazy. I freakin love the series. Unfortunately, I haven’t read the third one yet. It’s on hold in the libraries and it’s kind of expensive on hard cover. I might just have to wait a while until it becomes available in the library.
I’ll read the Nicole Krauss books when I finish Rebecca. So far, I think it’s a great book. I use all my free time for writing so I haven’t gotten too far into the book yet. I suggest you and Rani read it though. It had that creepy vibe going on. I like it.
I currently have 14,178 words in the novel I’m writing. I can’t say I love it but I don’t hate it either. I have to say that I had no idea I could create a story out of no where. At first, it seemed very scary because my creativity is very boring. Right now, I’m just writing and sticking with what I write. It’s almost over so I have to wrap up the story soon while still completing the word count.
I started a new book. I can’t remember whether I told you or not. The book is by Daphne du Maurier and its called Rebecca. Have you read it Mr. French? I haven’t gotten very far because I’ve been focusing on writing. So far, it’s pretty good. I don’t believe I’ll have to struggle to finish it. The real struggle was One Hundred Years of Solitude. Random thought: my story sucks. =D
I have never watched a harry potter movie in my life. I can’t say I really want to though.
Mr.French!!!! My English teacher has assigned us to participate in National Novel Writing Month!!!! She has set the word goal minimum to 18,000 words. I have to write a novel in a month. When she said this I almost cried because I’m not good at coming up with ideas. I’m horrible at it. What if I can’t make it to 18,000?? The teacher is going to do it too but her word count is 50,000 because she is an adult. I wanted to tell you for some reason I don’t know why. So yea, I’m going to write a novel! I’m excited but worried at the same time. I’m scared about not meeting the 18,000 minimum but I want to aim for the 50,000 goal. Does it make sense?
I started a new book for the quarter. Ms. Conti assigned us to read a different book every quarter. I think I told you already. I started to read Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier. Have you read it?
