The Wonderful Smell of Books

Everyone has smelled a new book and an old book and have chose which smell they like better. I personally prefer the smell of old books. This smell is what draws us to the library or to bookstores to pick out a different book to sit down read and occasionally, shove our face into the center of the crease and smell it. Don't deny it. We all have done it at least once.

Holiday Season

This time of year is my favorite because it gets cold and there are three major holidays back to back. This is the time of the year were we can just sit back and relax while enjoying life and time off from school and work.

Nimrod Conference

Last weekend, four students, two teachers, and I went to the Nimrod Journal's writing conference in Tulsa Oklahoma. It was the first time that I had ever been to a writing conference let alone any conference, so I wasn't really sure what to expect when I got there. At the conference, they had many different classes that you could take but the one that I took was Publishing 101.

Constitution Day

Constitution day was on the 16th this year and Cowley had a pizza party for anyone that showed up. But in order to get in, you had to sign your name on a piece of paper that let you get free pizza and pop. Little did we know that in the fine print, It said that if we signed the paper, we would be signing off are rights. All of them.
