~E.L. Doctorow

Hello everyone!
I mainly write poetry and short stories, though I'm trying to work on something longer. I don't think I have the attention span for it, but I guess we'll see.
My (writing) genres are romance and magic realism or surrealism, but I'll critique and read anything.

Um, yeah. Enough about me. How was your day?

My day was boring, but tomorrow's a mufti day at school because it's the last day before half term, so I'm happy for tomorrow. But today still sucked and this evening is going to be noisy.

Welcome, how was your day?

Then in every human being there is something at least a little schizophrenical, otherwise there wouldn’t be readers, if you were right.
This was a joke wasn’t it?

Well, you sound knowledgeable. Those are good topics to write about. Have fun!
Thank you, my day was great. Thanks for asking.
Adventure in itself is worthwhile.

Well... my day was pretty cool. But the twenty-ninth will be the most depresing day of my life. Kings of Leon are playing at the Patriot Center, but my mom has some meeting. They are the best band on the face of this earth and I might not ever have this chance ever again. I'm already getting bumed out just talking about it: sad:
