Howdy all. I really like this blogfest as it comes from the super mind of Loralie and her blog, http://blog.apathyshero.com/. She is awesome so check out her blog along with the others who are taking part of the blogfest. Too see the blogfest entries go to this post: http://blog.apathyshero.com/2011/01/randomfest-blogfest.html
(If looking for YAmore entry, that will be posted this afternoon. 2 blogfests on one day.)
I have two entries. Why two? Well, the first is one I found in a notebook from high school and in all honesty, I'm not sure if I wrote it or my friend Micah did. We were in Academic Decathlon together and we could have written it together, or I could have written it or maybe she did. It does read as nonfiction but I obviously had some fiction element attempt planned or she did. Something like that.
And the second entry is all mine but I know nothing about it. Even though I've started writing paragraphs for each idea I get so that I won't forget what the idea was, this is an exception. Somehow, on my idea stickies note, there were only three words written for that idea.
Entry 1: Random story started in notebook during senior year Academic Decathlon
Author: Me or maybe Micah Brandt
Title: The Gift of the Moon God
For thousands of years the Indians, Pueblo of South America, live in part of Central and Eastern South America. Now they live principally in Paraguay. The word "guarani" means warlike and before the 16th century the tribes were fierce and bellicose. But after the arrival of the Spanish missionaries in the jungles of Paraguay, the Guaranies converted into a peaceful town and industrious. Although Spanish is the official language of the Republic of Paraguay, the language Guarani speak with much frequency...
I had great vocabulary skills as a teen. Wish I still had them. Need to read more.
Entry 2: Random idea I know nothing about from 2010
Gods in training
Who is the character? What is the plot? Which Gods? I have no idea. Where did the idea even come from? No idea either because I don't even remember writing it.
