Eminent Library Experience

Hello everyone! I had so much fun at the library! How about everyone else? The book store was crazy. I was pretty sure I was going to walk into something. I got some really good photos, especially of the library. So as I said in the comments of my last post, I am going to include connections between my word and Harriet Adams.

Oops, think I walked into Joanna at this point…

You’re surrounded….

Oh look, there are my feet…

I want to be a spy!

Music scores at the library! Can we have this in Coquitlam? Please?

I loved these books as a kid. I think my sister and I had bowls and mugs with these characters on them at one point…..

I wonder what’s behind the door? The door itself looks like a safe.

I hope it may also open up different ways of seeing stories and plots as well as help me to learn more about writing as I speak of a writer’s life through her sister’s point of view.

If Joanna had sent me her photos, I could have all the matching photos and this wouldn’t look so weird…. Go to http://talonsjoanna.edublogs.org/ to see if she has her photos up that match.

Officially one of the best book stores I’ve ever seen!

The book stacks looked unstable… It was a little un-nerving….

Well  that is how my word connects to my person. Yeah… I don’t know. I’m actually really looking forward to writing my speech. I think it will be really fun and an interesting challenge. This will definitely be harder than writing as an unknown observer that had no personal connections. Luckily I have a sister so I can kind of imagine what sisters sound like. It helps that my best friends are twins and are sisters to each other. I get an unbiased viewing of many arguments and conversations without being part of them myself…. Yay!

 

 

Taking photos today really got me excited for photography class. I loved trying to get all the different angles, focus points and colour schemes. I really wish I had had a better camera than just the one on my phone because you can’t play with the focus points. I think I officially have something new to save for….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am a little sad that I could only find one book on Harriet Adams and I don’t even know how much help it will be. Thank goodness for the internet or I’d be in a bit of a predicament for research.

I can only imagine the internet crashing a week or two before Night of the Notables. How many people would be doomed? I sure would be.

 

 

 

 

This little expedition was really fun. I sure hope that we all can do something like this again. I’m so glad it was a beautiful day. Can you imagine if it had been raining? I’m sure we would all have still had a bunch of fun… we would just also be kind of wet…. Hmmm solitude spot in the rain…..

 

Time to compile all the rest of my photos…. I really need to learn some formatting for mass picture addition…. Maybe later… Please excuse the explosion and disorganized clumps and enjoy the photos. Bye!

Eminent Person

It has started! I have no idea whether I should jump up and down and clap my hands or run away and hide in my room for the next month. Hopefully, the latter will not be necessary. Moving on…. I have decided to do Harriet Adams as my Eminent Person.

Harriet Adams  is most known for her work on the Nancy Drew Series which she wrote under the name Caroline Keene. She also wrote some Hardy Boys books under the name Franklin W. Dixon. She was a huge part of the Stratemeyer Syndicate. This was a book packager started by her dad, Edward Statemeyer, which she took over when he died in 1930. She had a sister named Edna Squier and she married a man named Russell Vroom Adams with whom she had four kids.

While completing the eminent person project, I hope to find inspiration and ideas for my own books and stories. One of Harriet’s stories or part of her life may spark ideas for me or possibly help me to find what type of genre is my strength and what genre fits me. This will help me to complete my IEP goal of finishing my novel.

 

Stories

Okay, well I don’t know if anyone actually looks at other peoples blogs….. but I’m writing a story and I don’t know what to do for the ending. I’ll attach a link HERE to its google doc. Now, I haven’t really looked at it for about 2 years so please don’t look at the grammar. The idea I have for now is that the twins confront the court/castle people (like Sean and stuff) and reveal Herald’s crimes. They go to Herald’s study to confront him and find him dead…. Not really an ending but a good continuation. Don’t know what to do after that but Nyella ends up back in the forest with the wolves in the end…. I’d appreciate feed back from all the writers out there…. Wish me luck for finishing…. (I found this idea in a notebook from when I was seven)
