Starting the week write is a weekly post started here on living through pages by me where I post some quotes images and a cool fact every Monday in a matter to start the week off right and fight off the Monday blues. Feel free to join in on this weekly post just mention where the idea comes from in your post and please leave the link to your starting the week right post in the comments (though the link is not mandatory just appreciated).
Hello dear readers I hope everything is well with you,
What's going on in my life:
The posts on the blog have been popping up more infrequently I know but I have a valuable reason trust me,im not going to dump them all on you right now because it isn't the happiest of reasons and this post is here to start the week write. Apart from that reason there is also school coming to a close soon which means all the unorganized teachers are dumping a big load of work on us so they have enough things to evaluate and it also mean lots of studying and work for finals and this year it is really important that I get good grades for universities and such. Not only the mystery thing and school but I'm also into the editing stage of my novel and I want to finish the second draft in time for a 2 week writing course I'm going to this summer so I can ask the opinion of some people who have already had novels published. So those are my reasons just letting you know and once all that work and other stuff is over you can expect a lot more reviews and other blog stuff.
"Sometimes, there aren't any good choices. Sometimes, making the right one is hard... It's funny, but when you think about it, we're all broken. That's what life does. It knocks you down and breaks you and you either get back up again, or you don't. You either do things on your terms, or you don't. You let the bad things win, or you don't."
"You either let it break you, or you don't."

"Mom lies down next to me and we both stare at the ceiling in complete silence. “Boys are like candy,” she suddenly says. I grin. “Really, Mom? That’s your advice? Boys are like candy. What is that? Forrest Gump on teens?"

"She could ask for anything, she thought dizzily, anything--an end to pain or world hunger or disease, or for peace on earth. But then again, perhaps these things weren't in the power of angels to grant, or they would already have been granted. And perhaps people were supposed to find these things for themselves."
City of Glass - Cassandra Clare
"Percy, meet Gladiola. Gladiola, Percy."
I stared at Annabeth, figuring she'd crack up at this practical joke they were playing on me, but she looked deadly serious.
"I'm not saying hello to a pink poodle," I said. "Forget it."
"Percy," Annabeth said. "I said hello to the poodle. You say hello to the poodle."
The poodle growled.
I said hello to the poodle."

"Spring is the time of year when it is summer in the sun and winter in the shade,” wrote Charles Dickens. As we prepare for a long-awaited spring, it’s interesting to reflect on the role that spring plays in literature. This week, try to write a scene that incorporates a spring tradition. It can be something as ancient as a maypole festival, as commonplace as “spring cleaning,” or it can be a new tradition, made up for the purpose of your story. If you need some inspiration, research how different cultures welcome the spring months.
