My Novel Favorite Part

                           CHAPTER 1


                                       Bendy’s Revenge


“I always win,” Bendy said. “They get stronger and stronger and they get easier to defeat.”

Glitch came in and said, “One day you will fight a villain, but lose.”

“We will see,” Bendy said. Suddenly they heard a crash on their roof! Bendy ran up to his roof and he saw a big crack. Bendy looked down the crack and jumped in. Then he saw a villain known as the destroyer!


Bendy picked up a rock and threw it on the destroyer. But the destroyer didn’t feel anything. Then the destroyer picked up his staff and spin it on the floor. Suddenly a portal came up and then alien guards jump out of the portal and try to shoot Bendy but they keep missing and missing. Bendy wore his suit. It was bulletproof and fireproof and can fly! Bendy flew as far away as he can.

Congratulations, Winner!

What an exciting week! My eighth grade students (and one seventh grader) took on the NaNoWriMo challenge. As of today, a few hours before midnight, 100% of them have become winners as they finished writing their first novels! What fun!

Thanks to the NaNoWriMo staff, especially those working on the Young Writers Program. You guys rock!

NaNoWriMo Approaches

National Novel Writing Month is coming. In its lucky 13th year, hundreds of thousands of people all over the world take the month of November to write novels. Students in grades K through college are participating too, many of them through the Young Writers Program of NaNoWriMo.

This year fifteen 8th graders and I will take pen in hand (or laptops in our case) and write a novel. We are in the process of getting our NaNoWriMo accounts created, editing novel information, and author information. Our goals range from 5,000 to 20,000 words.

We would love to make connections with others who are participating in NaNoWriMo. Are you joining?

Here is a video of last year’s 8th graders…
