Hey guys, does

Hey guys, does this sound crazy?

I heard that great authors also write songs; is that true?  If it is, let me know, because I had been making tons of them because of this rumor.  While I'm on, I might as well put on more, as long as everyone promises not to steal them! :D

I don't know if this sounds good, but it's one of the flashbacks that Sam M. was talkiing about.

Michelle was poking inside of the egg, muttering, "Bomb, bomb.  Their must be a bomb inside of here."  Then a puny voice came up.  The sound of her 10 year-old daughter, Ann Marie.  "Mommy, what are you doing?"  "Oh, nothing, nothing at all!"  Michelle was so surprised that she threw the egg on the roof.  Ann Marie followed it up with her blinkless gaze.  "You're throwing eggs on the ceiling?"   "No, no, i'm making brownies!"  She reached around for the other eggs, only realizing that her arm knocked them onto the ground.  "I'm telling daddy."                                                                                                                 

That night, at dinner, Ann Marie told daddy on her mom.  'Why won't you punish her?" she demanded.    "I can't," Jacob replied.  "She saved my life."  "She did?" "Oh, figure of speech, figure of speech," he replied hastily.

Just for all you guys, this is part of a story.  Michelle and her friends have been attacked by these crazy people ever since they were 12.  Now they are grown up, and very awrare of their daughters' and sons' safety.  That is why it might sound crazy to you. 

By the way, get back to me on that rumor.  I want to know if it is true!

Say, is Michelle that same girl whose husband (Jacob?) is killed by Scar, or am I mixing up the Michelles?

About that rumor... I wouldn't say it's true. For example, J. K. Rowling is an amazing author, but as far as I know she's not a songwriter. Great authors CAN be great songwriters, of course, but I don't think it's always the case. Some people's talents lay only in story-writing, and they can't write a song to save their lives. Naturaly, though, if you're good with songs, keep going in that field too. Maybe you could post some?

HA!  That is great Leah.  POST MORE!!!!  You should post ALyssa's or Caitlin's.  About the rumor.  No I don't think writers are songwriters, but don't let that stop you. Besides.  I want to hear one of your songs.
