Yes, Please make this my home page!
Like the poems, most of these were written for class. The little writing assignments were written in class and had some sort of topic I was supposed to do. Be a little gentler on those ones, please. Hee hee. I had only half an hour or so to do the in-class assignments. When I get more time, I might revise some of them. :o) Send any comments to Katryna7@hotmail.com. I'd really appreciate it! :o)
As you'll probably see, I like having at least a little bit of humor in most of my writing. :o)
- Bouncy Blue Bumblee Mania: A teenage girl waits in line for hours to get the hottest new toy of the season for her little brother. Some people saw it as a social commentary, which it kind of is. :o) It's my very first long story.
- One Woman's Search for Love: June goes on a series of dates while her best friend, Max, laughs at her. It's a romance, hee hee. I like it. It has the honor of being the second story I've written. ;o)
Writing Assignments: I'm attempting to give them creative titles, but since they're short and about preassigned topics, it's a little difficult. :o) These are in the order I wrote them in.
Back to the Main Page
- Someone's at the Door: Kind of like Scream. Basically, we were supposed to throw in as many clichéd people, situations, and phrases as we could into a story.
- Hannah's Choice: Basically, I was assigned to write a story from this plot: Hannah found out she was pregnant. Andre slammed the door.
- The Steel Building I: I described a building as seen by a man whose son has just been killed in a war. Could not mention the son, war, death, sadness, or the man doing the seeing.
- The Steel Building II: I described the building in the same weather at the same time of day as the first version but as seen by a happy lover. Could not mention love or the loved one.
- Character Résumé: You'll only get some of the next assignments if you know what kind of person my created character is. I obviously decided to do Molly, hee hee. She's a combination of Molly Moo-Milk and the human Molly Mümilke persona my friend Tom created for his webpage so that I could answer some of the questions. :o)
- The Steel Building III: Conveyed the mood of my Molly character as she looks at the steel building and the old man whose son has died. Had to imply, without explicitly stating, the age, profession, and class status of Moolly as well as give her a reason for being at the building.
- Talking with Katherine: Basically, Molly is talking to someone else's character (my friend Eleanore's who made Katherine Carr, a journalist). We had to indicate where they were through the dialogue.
- Eavesdropped Conversation: I didn't write this, but I thought it was funny. We had to eavesdrop on a conversation, and I did my roommate and a friend of ours. She'll probably kill me once she sees I put this up, hee hee. As a note, the beep isn't call waiting. My roommate pokes people and says beep. And yes, the Tom mentioned is the infamous bearded Tom.
- Continuation of The Sun, the Moon, the Stars: My teacher gave us the first paragraph of Junot Diaz's The Sun, the Moon, the Stars and we had to continue it for a bit. So, the first paragraph isn't mine, hee hee.
- Racing to the Finish: Basically we turn a summary into a scene. We took one sentence of our own choosing and extended it into a sort of slow motion thing. I did "She raced to the finish line."
- The Collision: A collision occured between a bicycle and a vehicle at the corner of 1st and A. There was one eyewitness. We were supposed to show it through the point of views of the three different people, and do one in the 1st person, 2nd person, and the 3rd person.
- The Personal Ad: My teacher gave us personal ads and we were supposed to create a character who answers it. They go on a horrible date. There're a bunch of parts to this. Kind of inspired my One Woman's Search for Love story. :o)
- 2 Truths and a Lie: We had to write about 2 true things that happened to us and 1 made up one. See if you can pick out what's true and what's not. ;o)
- Bedroom Descriptions: I described my bedroom when I was a kid, and Molly's bedroom when she was a kid.
- My Little Secret: We had to write about a secret. The one assigned to me was: All my pants have waist size 32, but I change them all to size 31.
- Becoming a Frat Member: We went to the university's art museum and when we got back, we had to write something about a piece. I chose to write from within the painting. It was basically a guy in a white cloak against a black background and all you could see was the lower half of his face.
- Almost Drowning: We had to base a story on something that happened to us before the age of ten. So yes, it's true. :o)
