Writing my Story

                    Lately I've been working on my new story currently called "Sweet as Ginger"  My book is about a seventeen year old girl named Ginger and she is the owner of a bakery called Sweet Tooth.  One day one of her friends named Tiffany sees an article in the paper about a huge cooking competition that's coming up.  She tells Ginger that she should really enter the cooking competition.  Ginger enters and tries to win the most grueling cooking competition ever.  Right now I'm working on chapter five and I think it sounds kind of lame.  But really, who doesn't?

  My sister Jessica from Write. Skate. Dream tells me to never revise your first draft chapters, or you might end up erasing half of your story!  I'm trying not to, but sometimes I really think some parts of my story just seem really weird and lame.  So today I made only small revisions like grammer mistakes or misspells.  (I hope those are OK to fix.)  OK, well, I have to keep writing!  Wish me luck!!

  1. Good luck, Alyss! I know you can do it :)

  2. I love the name Sweet as Ginger! :)

  3. Sounds like something familiar...What were you going to call your cupcake shop? Does Ginger have a Mom and Grandpa who love to cook? Make sure you keep the movie rights. :) Are you thinking to put any actual recipes in the story?

    1. I might put some recipes in the story, I don't know for sure yet though. Thanks for commenting! :)

  4. Do you know that "luck" is a condition when preparation meets opportunity? In other words, luck comes to those who prepare themselves day in and day out for whatever is important to them. You will be "perceived" to be "lucky" by others but the luck will have come to you because you PREPARED. Love, Grandma

  5. Great job, Alyssa! I can't wait to read your story when it's done! Keep working. I know you can do it :)
