Ugh, again, my life is ruined

Okay, it's time for a rant.

It never ceases to amaze me how an author can take a great subject, storyline, plot and inspire it with amazing characters, realistic situations and engaging converastion. But then, just to settle some sort of complex they harbor within themselves, they have to make the main characters sex-crazed lunatics (which is perhaps a slight exaggeration). Now, I'm no prude, in my own mind anyway. I don't think there's anything wrong with kissing, or passionate kissing. Then they feel the need to press it further into some disgusting R-rated crap instead of just letting the story speak for itself. Because, God forbid they paint a realistic view of a teenage girl who DOESN'T go out and get laid. That would be too unrealistic. Besides, EVERYONE wants to get laid, don't they? It just makes me sick. I wonder if they realize how many people, because I hope there are quite a few, who put down the book once their characters get out of control. Every time I have to put down a book I'm sad, because I wanted to find out what happened. But I'm more angry, that the author had to do something so retarded and ruin the whole thing for me. So for all you young adult authors out there who just can't bear the thought of any teenagers remaining virgins, thanks a whole flipping lot because I just wasted two hours reading the first hundred pages of your book. Thanks for taking my valuable time and making me think I might respect and enjoy your work only to find out, no, this author is a sex-crazed maniac who just can't get over themselves. Maybe next time you write a book about a fifteen-year-old girl, you should think hmmm, maybe there are some fifteen-year-old girls who don't compromise themselves and hmmm maybe there are some teenagers who are CRAZY enough to not really want to read your wild sex scenes. So kudos to you and your retarded accomplishment. You've just torn down the morals of the next generation a little more and helped assure one more teenager that adults encourage animalistic behavior, and this one is completely disgusted by it.

So tell me, you're the adult and I'm the teenager, but I'm not the one who is controlled entirely by my wild raging hormones, I'm civilized, I know what's really important. I'm a mature human being. What're you?

You've pushed at least one kid on their way down the slippery slope so they can rot in hell forever. I hope you freaking proud of yourself.

And that's the Written Word.

First Post

Wow, it's been forever since I had a blog. I barely even remember why exactly I deleted my old one, but I guess that doesn't really matter anymore.

I created this blog mainly to complain and/or exclaim about the various books I've read and the novels I've written, though I guess they're more along the lines of novella since most aren't that long. Oh well. I'm assuming no one is really going to read this because, why would you? Not like I'll be saying anything interesting, but I love to talk plots and character development so if I'm talking aobut a particular book I'll put a spoiler alert at the top so nobody who wants to read the book but hasn't had the chance yet will stumble upon things that will ruin the story for them.

Also, I will be groaning about how it's already August and I'm twenty books away from my goal for the summer (35, to be exact) so I have to get a-readin! My most recent reads were Pendragon: Raven Rise by D. J. MacHale (a great book, i love the Pendragon series and highly recommend it for teenagers) and Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer, though I'm assuming everyone has heard of that one. It was also very good, but I have to admit after a really good book I usually mope for a couple days because I'm so depressed. Let the moping begin.

Finally, I'm made this to make myself feel like i was doing osmething useful even though I only have a month of summer left and stil have twenty books to read and 97% of a manuscript to edit. Procrastination is the bane of my existence.

That about wraps it up for my first post. This will probably just make it even harder for me to reach all of my goals, but whenever I hit a minor milestone I'll post, I suppose, and make myself feel better about it.

And that's the Written Word
