Hi, writers!

Okay, I know that I say this a lot, but I must start by seriously apologizing for not writing in over two months. It's amazing how busy one can be with just basketball, violin, and schoolwork to take up time! I am so sorry. I hereby vow to work on my webiste more. Well, we'll see how long that lasts!

On to more important matters: I have a wonderful book recommendation. It's actually a series, the Thursday Next Series. It is excellent science fiction, as well as being tremendously f...
