You hold the pen in your hand, poising it above your page, as you shift through your never-ending thoughts. Each one trying to grab your attention, to be the one that is chosen, but you want something. . . Right. But no matter how many thoughts and ideas you go through you just can't find it. The pressure of all these useless thoughts begins to build up inside your skull. They are pushing each other around, trying to be heard. They smash against the walls, and your head is throbbing, and starts ache.
You know! You bloody well KNOW that the right thought is in there somewhere! There's just too many other noisy thoughts getting in the way. Of course, it would have to be the one to hide itself, deep in the dark vacant corners of your mind. It probably feels like it has to be there so it doesn't get trampled by the others. Poor perfect idea, unable to venture forth and give itself a chance to be chosen in fear that it would get destroyed or taint
Twilight series Breaking DawnBreaking Dawn a.k.a. Epic Fail a rant on the Book 4 of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight 'Saga' Twilight series Breaking Dawn6 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
A while ago I managed to find a copy of Stephenie Meyer's Breaking Dawn(BD) in the public library. Since there was no third book of the series, Eclipse in sight; I had to make do and borrow Breaking Dawn first even though I still haven't read the third book.
Frankly, I had only watched the Twilight movie last year, then recently I had read New Moon from beginning to the end, and now I'm reading Breaking Dawn, the order of it doesn't sound quite right since I jump the third book, still I had read a few reviews on Eclipse so I'm confident that I know what the plotline was about so I had no worry following the plot of BD. Plus, since I'm not going to waste my money to even order a copy of Eclipse or Twilight from the library (you got to pay a small fee for your order when using the library's service), I would have to wait to finish all of the four books

Or The Power of Belief
People say that love can cure any curse, transcend logic, and will always win. They say that people will go to any lengths to avenge a wrong, jealousy will drive you mad, and honey catches more flies than vinegar. These are all powerful weapons in a story, but what give them their power? The true weapon behind all these emotions is belief. This paper will examine the lessons taught in stories about belief, the duality of belief, and how belief can be applied to people's daily lives.
To examine belief, we must first define it. According to the Miriam-Webster Dictionary Online, belief has three definitions. These are as follows:
1. "A state or habit of mind in which trust or confidence is placed in some person or thing.
2. Something believed; especially: a tenet or body of tenets held by a group
3. Conviction of the truth of some statement or the reality of some being or phenomenon espe

2. HP books are much better written and English teachers agree with this comment.
3. Stephen King hates Twilight and loves Harry Potter and we can all rely on Stephen King (Author of The Shining) to be a good critic.
4. Twilight may include beautiful romantic elements. However, Harry Potter includes many beautiful romances, lots of exhilerating adventures, action, magic...the list could go on.
5. There are many more layers to the plotline, story and genre of Harry Potter.
6. Even Cambridge graduates enjoy Harry Potter.
7. Harry Potter has an adult version as it is aimed at a wide variety of the population. Twilight is in the teenage section & the teenage section alone.
8. Harry Potter fans can spell and put forward a decent argument on these discussion groups, not like "omg rpattz is hot n stuff".

Simon the boy,
Full of pleasure,
Was not a toy,
But very clever.
His bright eyes,
Which had deceived all,
The Lord of the Flies,
Brought his downfall.
The only power to withstand evil,
Was killed during the night,
Mistaken as the devil.
Now that day has lost its light,
Simon the mystic watches with worry,
As the boys commence in a fight,
And kill in a fury.
Simon the brave,
Could have convinced,
But the beast in all craved,
All hearts minced.
Now all in pain,
Lets hope his death,
Was not all in vain.

I clutched the fragile cardboard box and ran. I made it to the hallway the teachers could see from their lounge. I ran around the corner, to safety - or so I thought. I huddled up in a window bay, hugging the box. Contrary to my hopes, the boys spotted me.
Not far away, girls were playing with their gifts already - dolls and origami sets. The letters of their pen pals were long forgotten. In this very moment I wished I was like them. Teachers would come to help me or I would have friends who would at least call for a teacher if no one was there. But most importantly, I wouldn't care for this box. My pen pal would be another girl just like them, writing three lines about merry Xmas and

Hello everyone, a few days ago I discovered a translated version of Twilight in the public library, even though I'd like to read the English version (It wouldn't be bad to get some LOLs from SMeyer's English writing) but...a lot of people seem to be still ordering and queuing for the book, so I have to make do with the translated one.
First thing, bear in mind that I don't mean to say it's bad for people to enjoy Twilight, but I wrote the rant in hope that more people would be aware of how bad the books were written and what kind of wrong/misleading messages it might be sending to their readers. Last but not less, I want everyone to have a good heart-felt laugher by the time they finish reading the following rant.

Girl meets boy, boy meets girl. They fall in love and the boy turns out to be a vampire. It sounds like an intriguing story, right? Is it a good enough story to fight over? Apparently the obsessed fans of Twilight think so. They are willing to fight at the drop of a hat with anyone who does not share their opinion. The series is just not good enough to fight over. There are numerous stories of "Twi-hards" (Twilight fans) fighting naysayer's. While this topic may not be controversial in a typical sense, it definitely causes arguments.

I'll start with Meyer's writing. From the very first page the writing is choppy and clichéd. She uses phrases like 'her cheeks were red as tomatoes' and 'my blood was boiling'. She's also repetitive, repeatedly using words such as stone, shining, cold, etc. Not only that, but her writing is full of purple prose; I could skip over paragraphs full of unnecessary description. Hell is paved with adverbs, my friend, and Meyer has surely created about a mile of purple prose leading to the inferno. In one sentence she uses ten adjectives! Her fans may say this is descriptive, but it distracts the reader from the plot and characters. For example, saying 'I sat at the

Everyone who was paying attention, that is. Three princesses, sharing a booth, were rather oblivious to that fact, though one more than the others. Aurora was sitting in the booth with an almost comically soppy look on her face. Pale cheek cupped by one delicate hand, she idly stirred her tea with her spoon, sighing now and then as she gazed into the depths of the cup.

The night watchman called lights out at ten o'clock as usual. The doors locked, and the pale light of the moon shone through Ralph's room. In the room stood a sink, toilet, and a small cot. The room was padded. The door had a glass window that reflected fluorescent light into the room. One window on the opposite side of the room let in the natural light of the moon. The combination of the artificial and natural light created a faint glimmer upon the mirror that hung above the sink.
Ralph sat on the floor as he always had after he and the other boys had been saved nearly two years ago. The war had ended in a stale mate with both sides realizing neither could win. Moscow, London, Washington D.C., Paris, and Berlin had all been obliterated. Leaving only a ghostly set of ruins, the only evidence any of them had ever existed.

Dr. Myers and I keep walking down the corridor towards the surgery room.
The hallway is cluttered with more supplies like wheelchairs, desks, gurneys, computer equipment and even torn down pictures of Warden Sharp. I notice there are lots of them throughout both all the buildings I’ve been in tonight, making me think this guy is really full of himself. I’m still holding my wound despite the bandage around it. It’s a little damp.
I see a sign ahead saying “Sanatorium” on the wall ahead, along with a small arrow pointing left. I assume that’s the room we’re going into next since we need to turn left at the end of the corridor. Once we do there are a set of stairs leading up towards the door, next to a smooth ramp coming from another corridor and leading to the door. We walk up with enough ease before opening the door, letting me fully see the Sanatorium.
It’s probably the largest room I’ve been in so far. There are
