"Books are a uniquely portable magic." - Stephen King

I love books, and I love technology, but I don't want to see the latter overwhelm the former. I just think books are meant to be pages you turn, not screens you scroll through.


Summary:

14-year old Miles and 12-year old Katrina are brother and sister, and they get along great. Then one day, when they're walking home from school, Katrina vanishes.
Miles teams up with his best friend Randall to find Katrina, and the truth they uncover is far worse than anyone could imagine.

Since I wrote this in sixth grade, it's at a worse writing level than my other book Infinity, but I hope you like it anyway!

I honestly didn't plan it out much--whenever an idea pops in my head, it just sticks with me. I always have really good memory like that; I never write any of my ideas down, and I still remember them.

IT'S AWESOME.

Thanks for the comment! :)

Write. It doesn't matter if you're overjoyed, furious, miserable, or what. Write to keep those emotions in check while managing to grow stronger.

no problem :-)

oh, and i know you said you'd seen my thread where i started Skeletals. just to let you know, i moved it all to a new thread (titled Skeletals) where i'll add a new piece of story every Saturday. so in case you're interested you can check that out. there has been a new piece added today, so if you want, you can read it.

wow, this is really creative! i really do like this, and if i find time later, i'll most likely read the sequel to it. i've always been a huge fan of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and this really was awesome. nice job :-)

Thanks! When I wrote this back in sixth grade, everyone said it was really creative.

 

I'm really wondering whether or not I should rewrite it. It'll still have the Legend of Sleepy Hollow in it and all the other key events, but if you've read my other story Infinity, you probably know what I'm talkin about.

 

So could you please tell me if I should rewrite it? And thanks for the comment! :)
