Writing/Drawing Prompt #1: Aliens

Writing/Drawing Prompt Thursdays

Every Thursday I'll post the first sentence to a story. Then, use that sentence to start your own story, or make a drawing based on that subject., using your creativity. Good thing I'm not doing this on a Monday because really, my brain is missing on Monday's.

So if you want, you can leave a comment and share some of your story, or email me your picture and I can even put it up on my blog next week (if you want to share it!)

So, here's the prompt. And have a fun-tastic time!

I just found out my bestie is an alien and i'm supposed to keep this a...a secret?

Other Things Books Are Good For

Books are good for a few things. Things such as:

1. Swatting mosquitos. Or spiders. But I only recommend this if the book is disposable. Like a telephone book.

2. Throwing at your friend. My BFF Nona threw a book at my head once. Among other things. Um yeah,   that KINDA hurt!

3. Making you taller. Really. If you stack a bunch of books you can stand on them to reach something super high that you're probably not supposed to be reaching for. But it's the challenge, right? Oh, and make sure each book is Harry PotterThick. Otherwise, you'll need like, a bazillion skinny books.


A girl. A guy. A ghost. A heist. Yikes!
 4. Okay, the most obvious reason of all, reading. You probably thought I forgot about that one, huh? Well, one of my favorite authors is Barrie Summy. She writes these awesome mystery type books. It even has ghosts in it! Anyways, I finished reading another one of her books and i'm addicted. Good thing it's a series and there's a bunch out there. You can check out her website at http://www.barriesummy.com/.

What are some of your favorite books?
