B&A: Teen writers, I have a poll for you:)? Topic: How to write about yourself in 3rd person
July 18, 2019 / By Betony
Question: Okay so I'm just curious, doing a little social science experiment I want to ask you these random questions about you and socializing. Seeing as I am a teen, I'll also answer them, incase you're wondering. 1. Do you have many friends? are you "popular" or "nerdy"? (I apologise for they stereotyping :S) 2. How well do you do in school? 3. Do you attend parties or gatherings often? how often? 4. Do you drink alcohol at these parties? 5. Are any of these apart of your interests: fashion, sport, music, maths/science, celebrity gossip? 6. Who is you're 'hero' inspiration or person you look up to? BQ - do your friends support you and your writing? In what way? thanks for you're time, I look forward to seeing your answers XD and for your information, if you're curious about me: 1. yes, I have lots of friends but whether I'm popular, I don't really know... I guess in a sense I am.. because I have many friends and I am friends with different groups, not just the one (but then again there is no real hierarchy at our school) 2. I do well In school I guess... I excell in english and the Arts... Maths and science.. well... Let's just say I need a little help with that. I'm an average student. 3. I LOVE attending parties XD so I go as often as I can. But It would average only to be about ever tird weekend, sometimes every second. 4. Okay, so I drink. I don't go off my head but I do like a beverage or two :) 5. I LOVE fashion and am good at sport. I hate maths and science though and celebrity gossip does interest me, but NOT when it's all over the news. I enjoy reading magazines etc but that's about it. OH and music = <3 just SO much love. 6. the person whom inspires me isn't a hero... she's more an idol, role model. And that would be Audrey Hepburn XD In my writing life though, It would definitely be JK Rowling, she's brilliant, what can I say. BQ - they don't know I write, to be honest.. they know I love writing, but they don't realise I sit at home writing and planning novels :\ Don't get me wrong, I am a nerdy person but I think popular can only be decided by the amount of friends (not the clothes you wear or the boys you bang XD) @ take yer own advice - I gave you a thumbs up to be honest. We do only live once and I plan to get high at some point

OMG a poll :DD YAY!! 1. Do you have many friends? are you "popular" or "nerdy"? Although it's a bit of the middle for me. You could say I'm popular with 40+ friends and all that ( mixed genders, some friends are guys, others girls) But, I'm still stereotyped as a total nerd/ geek at my school ( I blame being a writer, computer geek and art freak!) 2. How well do you do in school? Well... I'm not "bad" nor super good. I had this "dream" of getting straight A's but I'm sure that will never happen... with my D- in math! I have one A+ though in publications, B's in Science and English, P ( passing) in P.E. and an B+ in History. 3. Do you attend parties or gatherings often? how often? I am a party animal! Although, sometimes I'm quite shy... other times I am very into the party. I go to the mall at least twice with my friends every week, I go to parties 5 times a month usually and I'm usually invited to most teenage gatherings! 4. Do you drink alcohol at these parties? Sometimes... although I've learned that bad things happen if I do. Take the last party I went to... 5. Are any of these apart of your interests: fashion, sport, music, maths/science, celebrity gossip? Music- is what makes up half of my life, I ALWAYS have my Ipod with me! Fashion- I'm not too big on fashion and school trends, but I try to keep in touch with it all, sports- any sport ( besides soccer) I really don't care for, since my knees are so messed up, celebrity gossip- sometimes if it's a really important celeb to me ( like Katy Perry), math/science- I suck at both, so nothing to say there. 6. Who is you're 'hero' inspiration or person you look up to? Maybe, J.K. Rowling she's most writer's inspiration, then there's Pullman who wrote the His Dark Material's trilogy. Those books are GENIUS! I also look up to both of my aunts because they are so inspirational to me. BQ - do your friends support you and your writing? In what way? Yes, the second I told them all, " I'm writing a book!" They said that they would buy it, and asked what the title was. I also when finished editing a new chapter, e-mail it to my friends ASAP

Agnes Originally Answered: What is a good site for teen fiction writers?
Not experienced enough to write? What are THEY smoking? I haven't had stuff like that for years! Let's see, my opinion: Quizilla: Made for people who want to create quizzes with grammar and spelling so horrible it makes your eyes bleed. WattPad: = "WOW, I so did not reed ur story bc the english wuz 2 mangled too reed neways, but reed mine ok. btw ur soo totally gun'na git publizshd!!" Fanfiction: Agree with you there. Makes my eyes sore too, I have touchy eyes. They're emotionally... sensitive. Their eyesight sucks, though... anyways, carrying on! DeviantArt: Made for art, not writing. Not much comments o'er there. Inkpop: Best I've seen so far, but it has a few flaws: -I read yours, you read mine system (swap reading). You can't get yours read and commented on unless they do the same for you, and people don't always give as thorough answers as you do for them. In order to increase the rank of your books (and get more reads that way) you have to work for it doing swap reads. -Usually, when people swap read with you, they only read the first chapter or two and comment on that. Which usually isn't helpful when you have twenty people who critiqued your first two chapters, and none on the rest of your story. You can request people to read later chapters, but they don't know what's going on so how they critique is somewhat limited. -It's made for teens but there are older people on there as well you have to 'compete' with for higher ranking. When you're in the top 5 ranking, a HarperCollins editor will read your story, but it's not likely they'll choose it to be published. It's happened once so far. Fictionpress.com Worthyofpublishing.com Mibba.com Booksie.com I've heard of these two and apparently they're good, but I haven't used them myself so I don't know what they're like. youngwritersonline.net People here are somewhat more 'advanced' - ages 13-21, all serious about writing. You critique other people's works of what they've posted, and then you can post your own writing as well. It's good if you're looking for thorough critiques, but you have to spend a lot of time giving equally thorough critiques to others. Good luck writing. :D

1) I don't really have that many friends. I have a lot of acquaintances that I can get along with well, but friends that I want to hang out with when school is over are far fewer than the number of acquaintances. I'm totally a nerd, glasses and all (though I cover that up by wearing contacts). 2) I do well in school. I have all As or A/B (because of stupid math class) just about every time. The last time I had something other than an A or B in a class was in fourth grade, when I had a C in science. 3) I NEVER attend parties. I'm incredibly inept socially and never know about a party until it's already happened and people are talking about what happened there. I prefer being at home and typing my stories, anyways. I don't like being in places with lots of people, which is why I don't like going to school. 4) Nah, I don't drink alcohol. My parents have offered me a chance to try it (I got lucky and got super-amazing chill parents), but I just didn't want it. I don't really feel tempted by alcohol or drugs and think they're disgusting. Maybe it helps that I have a sizable bet with my brother that I won't drink a beer until I'm of legal age and I want to win. Five more years to go! 5) I'm not very big on fashion, I love football (Go Jaguars! Don't suck this week!) and no other sport, music is my second great obsession next to writing, I can't stand math/science, and celebrity gossip makes me sick. I imagine the sense of invasion and lost privacy the celebs must feel and just can't support the rags that call these people unfaithful or evil behind their backs, so to speak. 6) I don't really have anyone I look up to. My mother, maybe? BQ: My two best friends know that I love to write and support me all the way. When I finish writing short stories, I give them to my girls so I can have some feedback and so they can have fun reading it. I also help one of them with her writing because she would like to be a writer one day too. They always ask me how my novels are going and give me ideas when I'm stuck.

I don't think I'm "technically" still considered a teen, but I'm still in my teen years so why not? :P 1. Do you have many friends? are you "popular" or "nerdy"? (I apologise for they stereotyping :S): No. I've never really had that many friends. Just a couple close ones. I'm definitely not popular thought I wouldn't go as far as nerdy. I'm the quiet, shy kid, that people just kind of forget about. 2. How well do you do in school? I'm a straight B student. Totally average. Sometimes I'll get a few A's as well but B's are the norm. English has always been a good subject for me while math has always been terrible. 3. Do you attend parties or gatherings often? how often? No I wouldn't really say so. Every know and then I'll get together with a few friends. 4. Do you drink alcohol at these parties? Nope. 5. Are any of these apart of your interests: fashion, sport, music, maths/science, celebrity gossip? I love sports! And I definitely love music as well. I like to look nice, but I don't care anything about fashion. Same goes with celebrity gossip, I think the drama can be a little funny, but otherwise I'm not interested. As for math and science, they're just evil. 6. Who is you're 'hero' inspiration or person you look up to? There isn't really one person I look up too. Many of my favorite authors for sure. And it may sound weird but I also look up to fictitious characters as well. BQ - do your friends support you and your writing? In what way? No. My friends don't know I write. I'm the same in which they know I like to write but don't realize I do it. Most people would probably think it's crazy. I don't :)

1. I actually have quite a few. I don't have a set group, just about five close friends and then I meander through the rest. 2. High Bs and up, unless it's math. The other day, a friend of mine from South Korea needed help on a grammar assignment and he goes "You be the English, I'll be the math," which was awesome because he's actually a mid-B math student, and he likes to flaunt his I'm-Asian-and-bad-at-math-but-still-bett... over me. 3. Not often. The five friends I am closest with and I just float around each other's houses (two are siblings, and one lives with me so he can finish high school in this state, so it's much easier now. ha.) 4. Not really. I wasn't raised to think of alcohol as taboo, so it's no big ticket with me. If I want a drink, I can have a little bit, but the rule is that if I insist on drinking, it'll happen at home, and if my friends do, they have to spend the night. 5. Music and sports. I actually just got a letter from a college of music urging me to apply, and I'm a statistician/water girl/first-aider/book-keeper/equipment manager/secretary for baseball and football at my school. 6. Frank Sinatra is my inspiration. End of the story. BQ! My friends like my stuff when it's nice, but I don't write nice works.

Marquis Originally Answered: What advice would you professional/experienced writers give to amateur writers about criticism?
Yes happens to me too. I'm the youngest of five in my family. Others are so-called professionals: accountant,lawyer,doctor,manager, etc. I was the only one who chose to study in the field of Arts. I took Literature. They looked down at me and say bad things. Then i graduated last year. They hoped that i would venture into the corporate world. Instead, i chose to do my Master program also in the field of English Literature. My brothers and sisters made such a big fuss about it saying that the Arts, literature included won't make me rich like them. Like i won't afford luxuries, going holidays abroad, BMW and Mercedes cars like they have. They ridiculed me for being in this line. They make fun of the thickness of my textbooks. They never recognized my inclination towards poetry. They don't care at all whenever i won a poetry contest or when my poems got published. Literature, arts and poetry belonged to only a certain group of people. Poetry, especially belongs to the elite group. People who have taste and flair for it. You are not alone. We all face this situation. Stick to your guts, interest and passion in life. Cause that is what defines who you are. =)
