Hey!
This is really cool, but I would like to remind you that the Novel: Post Work in Progress for Peer Review board is purely for novels... maybe you should post these on the General Chat or Journalism boards for now on? Or, if you want to keep it on the Novel boards, you can post it on the General Discussion one.
Just a suggestion! ;)
 
Here are my answers:
1. C (no one notices me anyway! :p)
2. D
 
1. Colorful
2. Sweet
3. Writer!!!!!!!!!
4. Dreamer
5. Um, suburbs?
6. Quiet most of the time, loud every once in a while... believe me, I can get really obnoxious when I'm around my friends! (hehe)
7. Leader, though no one ever listens to me, so I guess I'm actually a Follower... Lol...

BookWriter101,

Great idea about starting this newspaper-- it seems you've generated some interest already.

It seems that this went up in the strange days of the reorganization of the message boards and I didn't have a chance to make some suggestions about adjustments to make this project more appropriate for the Write It boards.

First of all, we'll need to host this on the Journalism boards. Informative non-fiction writing belongs there.

Second, I'd like you to keep the discussion focused on issues surrounding reading and writing and keep the off-topic discussion to a minimum. With the Stacks being up and running, they are a better place to go for general socializing.

Best of luck with the project!

Polls: 1.    I would rather be a oerson with purple hair! I always wanted to have purple hair. however not real purple hair. Maybe a purple wig.
 
2. Sabrina the teenage witch is pretty good. I also like the suite life on deck. I guess thats A) and D).
Funfacts: Wow, these are some strange laws.:smileyvery-happy:
Discussion: I don't think cell phones should be allowed in cars. Because it might be very dangerous. It will distract the driver. If is a wireless, than I think it's O.K.
 
Ice or fire feature: I pick "
1. Colorful
2.Sweet
3.Writer and reader
4.Adventurer and dreamer
5.Country
6.Quiet
7. It's good to follow and lead.
 
Advice: I don't really have any advice. I would like to share a quote that I like. " That stuff on the paper are only words, YOU have to give it life."
