22 YEARS ALREADY?

My eyes still believed they were asleep, but my ears? My ears were wide awake. Whilst pressing my cheek on a white, silk pillow case, the sound of people living across my room were banging their doors, rushing to go to school. I swear I heard even the most sensitive of sounds. I, on the other hand, have no class today. As my eyes slowly opened (kind of like in slow motion), sunlight peeking through the tiny window hit my bed on the exact area where my head was rested. I bet that was God's way of telling me to wake up and rejoice! I'm finally 22 years old!

FREQUENT FLAMES?

Fire, the element that not only screams anger and chaos, but also represents what most people would label as passion; whether it be the passion for love or for a particular hobby, that strong and barely controllable emotion is present.

If I were asked to pick one word to describe me as of the moment, I would choose any possible term associated with fire. I have been having these unwanted mood swings that I cannot take control of. One moment I am mad, the second, I want to cry for no reason. Of course this is not menopause I am a twenty-two-year-old woman for Pete's sake. Maybe I am just under a whole lot of stress. Maybe?

ON STARTING A NOVEL..

School has been tough. As tough as Popeye becomes whenever he shoves that can of spinach down his throat, all the exams, the requirements, and even the social life (really?) was a real challenge for me. No matter, it is all over for now and I have all the time in the world to do what I do best.. sleep, eat, and write. *laughs*

I have been working on a novel. It is a love story with a twist, and I want to know if the first paragraph from the first chapter is inviting. Does it make the readers want to continue with the story?
