So You Think You Can Write?


By Alisha Dziennik and Eleasha Fredrick

Writing can be a very difficult job, and when you ask for help, it doesn’t always get any easier. Eleasha Fredrick began writing a story on Wattpad for her readers to be able to interact with and has been tossing ideas back and forth with me for a few days. Well, we sat down today in hopes of filling in some blank spots she had left before she could write her story.

Her story is one like Alice in Wonderland, but it’s the opposite of everything that goes on with Alice. It sounds like a great story, but it’s going to be very difficult to write while still allowing her readers to “choose” the path of the story. Collaborating with me to fill in those blanks has probably been her worst decision.

Our conversation has gone a little something like this:

“What’s the opposite of a Dodo?” She asked me.

My immediate reaction was to look at her like she was crazy and say, “Well, I don’t know. GOOGLE.”

She then informed that she had already attempted to Google it, and that nothing came up for her.

From there, it only got worse. She and I started brain storming ideas and came up with a few ideas. The caterpillar is suppose to be a guide of some sort to Alice, a compass, but we decided it would fit the twist of her story to make him a ring worm that lives inside of Midnight (Alice’s opposite).

Moral of the story? Eleasha and I should not be allowed to compare notes or collaborate on assignments.. Oh wait, we just did it again.. We don’t learn well, I suppose.
