This is a snippet of a bit of writing that I did over the last few weeks. I am not sure if I will publish the story, it is about ten pages of A4 at the moment.
Anyway! I hope you like it?
Let me know your thoughts about it?
The stop at Life’s Doom
As the dark afternoon continued, the two teenagers had arrived in a section of woodland called Life’s Doom. The two were getting very tired, it seemed like they had been walking for days. They rambled skittishly throughout life’s doom, trying to find their way when suddenly; Connor saw a shadow emerging towards them. The shadow was lurching and grumbling. They soon realised that it was a blood thirsty man zombie. It must have murdered someone because there was blood all over its ripped clothes. Chloe screamed. Then Connor yelled. The screams echoed through the woods, but no one could hear their cries. Nobody helped.
The zombie had seen the two children and raised its arms in the air and cried in a foreign language. The zombie limped towards them, faster and faster. It moved quicker than a clocks second hand. The zombie had death in its eyes. It was like death at first sight.
The two children held hands and began to run through the trees. The twigs, leaves and branches were thrashed out of the way. As the zombie chased them – several birds were killed. Connor and Chloe were definitely next and they knew it.
They ran as fast as their little teenage hearts would take them.
Luckily for the teenagers Connor noticed there was a large rock, and he dragged Chloe behind it to hide. He put his hand over Chloe’s mouth as she tried to scream. The zombie crunched past them. He was very close and was holding a dead bird in his hand. Luckily the zombie man had not seen the teenagers hiding place. He groaned through the trees searching for them. Moments later the zombie murderer had disappeared into the distance. The teenagers were so relieved that they sighed and Chloe started to cry.
They had frantically come to the end of Life’s Doom. Chloe said that it was pretty doomful in this area.
She asked, “We should move on quickly in-case the zombie comes back again.”
I was inspired to post pictures of my two cats today thanks to jackiesmith114.wordpress.com
Well I have two cats, Toby and Jemima.
We have had Toby since he was a kitten the size of a five pound note, now he is a beast at two and a half years old! He is the only black and white cat in a litter of ginger cats. I named him. He is a dad’s cat, he follows my dad around everywhere and sleeps on the end of my bed.
Jemima (or Mima as we call her)
We rescued Jemima from being put down because she couldn’t find a home. I don’t know why, she is so friendly and happy! Anyway we don’t know the full history about Jemima. The vet thinks that she is about six or seven years old. She is definitely a mum’s cat, she follows and talks (in meows) to my mum. Jemima is a bit scared of men though so some of her old owners might have been men who were nasty to her. We have had her two years and she is still a bit wary of men!
Do you have cats?
Hi everyone, I wrote this poem when I was 9 years old – it is called “Grandad is”.
I have just found it at the bottom of a pile of papers at home and I thought I would post it on my blog.
The poem is in the style of Valerie Bloom, who has created some children’s poems. I was studying her poems at the time (she wrote a poem called “Pinda cake” specifically.
My Grandad is… (awesome)
de galaxy bar floatin’ in de sky
an’ flufffy kitten
chocolate chunks an’ pneapple cubes
fresh chocolate smell in de mornin’
when me wake
loadin’ up de car
basketful on shopping day
with fresh cheese strings
de pineapples flavouring in de south
sound of de school bell
ring a ding ding
de fireworks in de horizon
underneath de moonlight
an a number one o’ magic
all around me
Grandad my NO: 1 star

I have just finished reading Knocked out by my Nunga Nungas by Louise Rennison.
This is third book of the Georgia Nicolson series.
It’s a book written for teens and young adults – although my teacher has read this book and he has grey hair!
Be warned – the book has some rude words in it so don’t recommend this for anyone too young!
The book is about the main character called Georgia Nicolson and her friends.
It is written in the first person and although I haven’t read the first two books, the feel of the book is about growing up in teenage years, her friends and her family. You don’t have to read the first books first because I read it just as easily as I would have done as a standalone book.
Georgia is still madly in love with Robbie The Sex God. Georgia says that she has the most embarrassing parents ever, but don’t we all think that?
The book was a fun read, it made me laugh very much in parts.
Some parts of the books seemed quite slow though, and I struggled to keep reading – however I was glad I finished it and persevered.
My favourite bit was The Snog Fest because it was one of the funniest parts and I read The Snog Fest part/chapter he fastest it was a laugh out loud moment.
I give the book 7 / 10.
I am going to read the first book after this review.
They have very catch titles… Angus, thongs and full-frontal snogging.
Have you read any of the Louise Rennison books?
Good morning everyone!
A short blog post – it has been a hectic, what with birthday’s and World Book Day!
First of all, I wanted to share with you a picture of the birthday cake my gran made for me.
It is a box of chocolates cake and it was eaten very quickly! Awesome!
The sides of the box are chocolate as well!
Then there was World Book Day.
For anyone who missed it – “World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading.”

At my school, we had a casual day where we were allowed to dress up as book Characters.
We had a Where’s Wally, Harry Potter and even some crazy Zombies!
I went to school as a character from my favourite book.
If I show you this photo, can you guess who my character was for World Book Day?
I’ll give you a clue – its from my favourite book that I go on and on about =)
