Hey, guys! Busy week at the OWL office, slow week on the blog. But what say we end it off on a high note with some awesome Reader Art of the Week?
It’s been a while since we’ve had fiction on the blog, but, lucky for us, blog reader Marissa sent me something to fix that little problem of ours. Check out the prologue and first chapter of her book, None of Your Elfness:
Nobody knows who I am. I don’t want anyone to know who I am. If they find out the real me, that’s the end.
So it was just a normal day, an ordinary Tuesday, only a math test to worry about. Once I entered the school, though, people started to look at me weird. I thought to myself was there something in my teeth? Was a part of my hair sticking up? So I hightailed it to the washroom. Teeth? Check! Hair? Check! Okay, maybe my clothes just didn’t go. After that weirdness, I ran to math class as I realized I was going to be late for the mid-term.
Once I got to math, though, I got more weird looks. Even Kennedy, the least popular person in our grade, told me it’s going to be okay. What in the world was happening?! I finished my mid-term early so I could check my phone for messages.
I had 30 new messages?! What?!
My best friend, who was the only one at school who knew the real me, had texted me seven times! One message said, “I know this is hard for you, but we will get through it together — Cassie :)”.
Other people had texted me to laugh or be mean. But one message said it all: “I know your secret!”
Cool, huh? And suspenseful! The title of the book gives us a clue as to our narrator’s “secret,” but the cliffhanger at the end of this first chapter definitely makes you want to read more and find out exactly what’s up.
Anyway, many thanks to Marissa for sending in her story. And many thanks to everyone in advance for sending me some more art for Reader Art of the Week. The cupboard’s getting a little bare!
Have a great weekend!
P.S. Is everyone off school today? If so, congrats on another great year! Also if so, post a comment below to let me hear about it!
