In an effort to share more of myself with you guys I created Books for Life. I talk about my life outside of this sanctuary called the blogosphere. Hopefully you guys like getting to know the girl behind the blog a little bit more.
Now I say “novel” because, really, it was just my 14 year old dreams. And no, I do not mean amazing dreams like changing the world or saving lives … I mean me 14 year old romantic dreams.
Here, I’ll give you a play-by-play:
Girl is in love with her best friend (okay to be clear here, I was not best friends or even friends with any of these boys, but hey, a girl can dream), Jiseppi (take note: boyfriend #1). Girl sees Jiseppi kissing another girl, gets jealous, and then they make up. But then they break up (that’s when the real life Jiseppi (also, his name was not Jessepi: for my own sake names are changed here) said something mean to me along the lines of “I would never date her“. Bleeping jerkface).
Along comes Edward (#2). Edward is pretty much perfect and the girl falls madly in love with him until he does a jerky thing (most likely in line with something the real Edward had done).
Enter Billy (#3). Billy wasn’t actually based off anyone in my life. I think I thought it was time for the girl to have a nice perfect boyfriend. But then Billy realises the girl is still in love with Edward and ‘sets her free because he loves her’.
New boy comes to town – Christian (#4). Christian is adorable and Italian, and was based off my local celebrity crush at the time (who was also ten years older than me but hey – 14 year old dreams again, right?). But when Christian leans in for a kiss, the girl says she’s in love with someone else and only sees him as a friend (probably me actualising the fact I would never get with the celebrity crush).
Then comes along Steven (#5), who is Edward’s older brother (who did not exist – I think I just wanted to play the ‘dangerous’ card – I mean this guy is 18 and wants a 14 year old girl – can I say WHAT). Steven also lets the girl free because he knows that she is still in love with his brother.
AND THEN. The girl sneaks into Edward’s mansion, IN A MAID’S UNIFORM AS A SNEAKY DISGUISE. And catches Edward with some girl. Main girl runs out (into the rain, of course), where Edward declares his undying love and they kiss passionately.
So that was my first “novel”, pretty much me writing kissing scenes with my subsequent crushes of that time and compiling them into a storyline-less piece of mushy mush that is now hidden away in a wardrobe in my house somewhere never to see the light of day again.
I hope you enjoyed reading about my first foray into the writing of a novel (and I promise the one I’m writing at the moment is a lot better than First Kiss – which was the title. And was crap. That girl kissed FIVE BOYS, MULTIPLE TIMES. First kiss my butt).
What was your first novel like? TELL ME – SHARE IN MY ADOLESCENT PAIN ;D
