Writing: Building a Character

Okay so if you know me, you know that I like to write. Welll I just thought that i'd make a little post today trying to help people I guess to build a character in the story that they're writing. Okay so you probably already know that a good main character is crucial to a good story. People probably won't continue to read the book if the character is dull, or even if there's no character at all. You want to make sure this character has good traits and a good way to let people see how it is through the character's eyes. Ask yourself questions about it: what does he/she like to eat? Drink? What are their hobbies? What do they do in their spare time? What do they think like? What's their physical appearence? What is their attitude like? How OLD are they? After you've built your character, YAY!! Another thing you wanna do is think about the dialog you'll use when this character communicates with other people. I know my advice isn't the best in the world, but thanks for reading anyway!

Pink Dolphin in Louisiana!

Well our state has a beautiful pink dolphin swimming in one of its' lakes! A pink dolphin was discovered in Lake Calcasieu just north of the Golf of Mexico. He was found by boat captain, Erik Rue. The dolphin is actually an albino dolphin....but it's so pretty! And so cool! =D So if you haven't heard about this yet, research it. Here's a picture:

If I Were a Dog lyrics

If I were a dog
even just for a day
I'd wake up in a crate in the morning,
thinkin, 'What the heck just happend to me?'
I'd wake up my owner
by licking their face
I could chew on what I wanted,
and use the bathroom all over the place
and never get fussed..
*If I were a dog
I don't think I could understand
what it's like to have your butt sniffed
and eat disgusting food from a can
I wouldn't listen to anyone
and i'd probably get hurt
when I lose the toy I wanted
'cause I was being taunted
and my owner was mad with me*
If I were a dog
I would chase after cats
Bark at absolutely nothing
and then i'd go and pee on a mat
Drink out of the toilet
and destroy everything
Then i'd put on my cute face
So they wouldn't even consider blaming me
'cause they think i'm so cute
It's a little too late to sleep on the couch
Yes, I made a mistake
Now i'm off to my dog house
If you thought I would sleep with youu..
You thought wrong!
But you're just a dog
you don't understand..
yeah, you don't understand! HEY!
How to feels for me to pet you,
and for me when you lick my hand
You don't listen to me!
You never follow the rules!
Sit, stay, shake hands, no..
You just wanna sit there and drool.
'Cause you're just a dog....
