So I figured I'd join the blogging world.
My name is Marisa, and I'm an upcoming freshman in high school from Massachusetts.
My two loves are dancing and writing.
In the fall I will be going into my twelveth year of dance, and it will be my fifth year competing. I take jazz, tap, ballet, lyrical, and hip hop. I'm on a jazz and hip hop competition team. I started dance classes since I was three, but I've basically been dancing since I could walk.
Writing is a fairly new passion of mine. I started writing totally on a whim actually. I found a website last July where people were posting their books, and thought "hmm... I can do this..." I've always enjoyed creative writing assignments in English class, but I never actually thought to write something on my own. Now, a year later, I have completed my first book.
I suppose I should talk about my book. It's called Dancing Through Life. I currently have it uploaded on InkPop, a website for aspiring teen fiction writers. It's currently ranked #5 out of over 28,000 projects. If it stays in that #5 position for the rest of July, a HarperCollins editor will be reviewing it for publication! It's very exciting and nerve racking!
On another note, here's what you can be expecting from my blog.
- Updates about Dancing Through Life and any of my other writing projects
- Book Reviews! I read A LOT, so I will now be reviewing every book I read.
- Some dance talk here and there.
-And the occasional story about what's going on in my life.
Well, I hope I didn't just bore you to death!
If I did, I'm sorry.
As you can tell, I'm pretty new to this.
I'll get better. :)
