Reflection

This week, one thing that worked really well was rambling on about my belief. I didn't sound preachy, and I made it interesting enough to make the reader want to keep reading. Throughout the year I have made a lot of progress. My voice have become really strong. My problem this week was trying to relate my personal life to my work. I don't like putting my personal life because I believe I have a relatively boring life. But with my personal touch is asked for, I will try harder.

My Voice

In any book there is a voice, an original twist form the authors own words. My voice, I believe is very strong. I have strong opinion on practically anything and everything. I don't believe that a voice in your writing is something that develops.  You may be able to teach yourself to use different vocabulary, or write about something new, but your true voice is always going to be there.

Life Encyclopedia

Clover tongue:
I can shape my tongue to form a clover. I think it's interesting because I'm Irish. It is a genetic mutation and it is something I am glad I can do.

Rook piercing:
I wanted my rooks pierced for a while before I actually got them pierced. No one else had them and I believed they were interesting. They were one of my fifth-tenth birthday present. When the piecer shoved the needle through my ear the pain was an acute sharp gab. He had to go through two layers of cartilage. The pain was worth it though.

Shark and jellyfish:
When I was around eight years old, my dad told me the story about the sharks and the jellyfish. He started off by saying they have both been around for thousands of years, but the sharks were the only ones that evolved. Over the years they lost fins to become more arrow dynamic, and jellyfish have just been the same. Then he fallowed that by saying there are two kinds of people in the world, sharks and jellyfish. The jellyfish just go with the flow, fallow the crowd. But sharks are go getters, independent individuals. This story my dad told me helped me figure out who I wanted to be in life, a shark.
