On Valley Voice

In Print.

He-he!! See that, that's a big deal! I'm in print, and I'm not giving you the reader's digest version!

    Okay, so here's my story and I'm stickin' to it:
   In my town, there's this little independent newspaper called "The Valley Voice". It's run by this really interesting, nice guy, Paulie Anderson. Anyway, my mom started writing the artist profile, so she was invited to the grand opening, ofcourse. You see, my moms a single mother, and we don't really get baby-sitters all that often so she took me. All the reporters and people who worked for the newspaper were there, and Paulie knew who I was!!
        You see, in November I take part in this thing called Nanowrimo every year. If you do it, you set a goal for how many words you write in one month and then write furiously for the rest of November. I do this every year, and this past year, I got 45,000 words, the highest for any kid above and below my age {6-13}. Infact, the only participant with more words, was the winner, at 50,000, but she's around 50 or so. Anyway, because of that I was in the paper...
      Moving on, Paulie had read about me in the paper and he invited me to write for his paper!! :D
So, in July, I submitted in article, but he denied it due to time and space. Ofcourse, I thought the obvious, he was just being polite and he didn't like my article.  Right?
    "Oh well."
     WRONG!! Next issue, I flip to the back page and there's my article!!!
      Long story short, I've just submited my second article and I'm now an official collumn! The Valley Voice isn't online yet, but when it is I'll have to post some of my articles!



A random Poem

...Post two in two minutes! Yay!! I bet you're proud of me...:D
       Anyhoo, I just wrote a poem and thought I'd share...My poem's aren't usually too good, but they aren't awfull either.
                                 That Girl~ By Calamity
                        The canvas I paint on, you don't understand,
The book I write, won't find in many hands,
I understand, I don't make much sense,
My mind is busy thinking, it's far too emense.
Most people don't like me,
They whisper, and stare,
But hey, who really cares?
I'm "that girl" and happy to be,
Happy to be me, to be completely free.
Other people trapped,
I will never be mapped,
I'm fine with my books,
My art and my looks.
You laugh because I'm different.
And I laugh because your all the same.
    So...erm...that's the poem! It's not very good, but it's something. :)

Hello there!

         Well my my, you found your way to my humble little adobe. It's nothing special, and I doubt it ever will be, but it will entertain me quite a bit.
        Oh well, not everything needs to have a purpouse, and most things don't, I suppose.
         Anyhoo, I'm Calamity! This blog will not only just be me spouting random things at random times {I seriously might post three different posts in two minutes..} but I'll also post the art I make.
 I'm a photographer, a flute player, a doodler, a writer, a reader and an introvert. Oh! And did I mention I'm eleven? ^.^
     I'll try to do as many posty thingys as I can, so check often!! I'm trying to learn new languages, so I may pop random french, italian or spanish in, so watch out... Chances are, you'll get to know me pretty well, so if you start reading this and you're actually interested e-mail or message me!! I'm always looking for a friend.

   So...I guess that's the jist of it. I'll get better at this. :)
