Write a story based on these photos.

I looked across the East River wondering what I should do. They were going to find me if I didn’t leave. I look at Roosevelt Island, a lonely looking place often forgotten in the midst of this crazy city.

If I snuck aboard one of those boats I could make it across. It was worth a chance and maybe a chance is all I needed….

Create your own story or continue mine. Be creative and have some fun!

Teen Book Review- Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs


All I can say is WOW! This last novel in the Peculiar Children series. This novel brings the peculiar children led by Jason and Emma on a hunt for their headmistress Miss Peregrine who was kidnapped by Wights.

There was so much going on in this book and every bit of it was exciting. Jason and Emma travel to the Devil’s Acre looking for Miss Peregrine and their friends after they were captured by Wights as learns that his peculiar powers extend farther than just seeing Hollows.

In this novel, we are introduced to new loops (homes for peculiars) and an underworld where peculiars are hunted down and killed for their very souls.

There are so many twists and turns that even as I was sleepy s ready to go to bed I fought sleep just so that I could read a little more. I am sure you’ll also enjoy this book. I don’t want to tell you too much expect that there are lots of twists, turns, and unexpected events that will make you love this book.

Teen Writing Prompt 785


“It’s happening all over the world. First, we heard about it in New York, then LA reported it. I decided to go to the city with my friends. My parents didn’t want me to go but I was sick of them trying to tell me what to do. Now, I wish I was with them wherever they are.”

What’ happening? Is it an alien invasion or some kind of national disaster of military invasion. Who is your character with and what’s the plan?

Be creative and have some fun.

I am currently reading The Library of Souls by Ransome Riggs. The novel is the third book in the Miss Peregrine’s School for Peculiar Children series. In the story, Emma and Jacob discover another hidden city within their world.

In Chronicles of Narnia, the story’s protagonist Lucky also discovers a “hidden world”. Write a story about a hidden world that your character “discovers”. What does this world look like? Who lives there? Tell me about its inhabitants.

Is difficult to ignore what is happening in this country. There is the problem with North Koren and the possible threat of missiles being sent to the United States. There are hate groups and the people fighting the hate groups. Natural disasters are plaguing us with hurricanes, fires, shootings, and terrorists.

Take one of these issues and write an essay about it. How do you feel about what’s going on? How do your friends feel? Here is your chance to get it all out.
