About

I am a male highschool junior, and reading and writing is my passion. I aslo enjoy photography, acting, jogging, and singing. I mostly write poetry, but I enjoy writing a story. I am adopted, along with my brother, and have lived with my family since I was two years old. I am biologically caucassian, but I grew up in the Mexican culture, being nutured by my mothers hispanic nature and humor. I am bilingual, and I love scaring people by the mere fact that underneath my white skin is somebody who understands every drop of spanish that drips from any mouth. When I write stories, I like to write about fantasy and adventure, but my poems consist of personal aspects of my life. I hope you enjoy my writing just as much as I have begun to enjoy the wonderful pieces of literature contained in this brilliant website.

Be sure to check out this coming week's writing prompt! :)

Nice ideas. :D

There are reasons why I don't have those sorts of thing here...maybe sometime I'll write a blog post about that.

The short answer is: school systems block social networking sites, and this is *not* a social networking site, but the more features like that I add, the more it looks like one, and I don't want to risk losing schools from the site.

It took mathax a while to figure it out too but my father daughter poem and fairy poems gave it away. Seriously though, why is everyone so suprised? Is it my screen name or just my style of writing?

If you get a friend request on facebook with a profile picture of a cat and a computer mouse that's me.

Yes, I have a facebook, but I like to remain anonymous when I write to avoid lash back if I write anything political. If you don't think that matters I'd be happy to friend you since you posted your facebook on your profile. I read some of your stuff and thought it was good. Keep writing and have a great weekend!

Thanks for the comment. I actually wrote the majority of that poem years ago and only added the last eight lines for the trusted friends writing promt. Glad to know it didn't lose anything by the addition.

Hi gabemay, thanks for the comment on my poem. In answer to your question-marks on my "Amusement Park" poem...the idea was to use metaphors to describe the way chocolate makes people feel. We did a poetry exercise on metaphor back a few weeks ago...you can still find that in the community forum.

Hi gabemay,

I got your message. I'll try, sometime this weekend, to go back and read a few of your poems, and then see if I have any comments to make! :)

Hi Gabe, thanks for clarifying about your dad. I was puzzled getting a message from you that was signed "Paul," but people often use something other than their real name for a screen name, so I figured that must have been what you did. :D

Tell your dad that if he wants his writing to appear publicly, he needs to verify his email address, which he hasn't done yet. If he needs help with that, he can send me a message.

Thanks Paul. :) This past week I was asked to bring the message for my church's Maundy Thursday service, and as part of my message I said "sometimes things go from bad to worse, and from worse to impossible, and that's when God does the miraculous," and when I was thinking about the writing prompt this morning, I realized this would be a good opportunity to expand on that! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Good catch! Thanks for pointing that out...I've fixed the writing prompt. Didn't even notice I'd done that. :)

Ha ha...well, if I add any more, I would have to change the title, because it would no longer be an epigram. :)

Oh, and thanks for the writing prompt suggestion. :)

There are several factors that go into measuring the popularity of a piece of writing, besides the number of page views. It's a fairly complicated algorithm. # of people who starred it, the number of stars given, whether people have marked it as one of their favorites, etc. Also, the algorithm only runs about once a week, and it is not entirely reliable for new authors on the site, because there's not as much information to work with. Hope that helps. :)

Sorry...I forgot about italics.

< i >italics< /i > (except, don't put spaces in between the <> and the i.)

you can do bold the same way...

< b > < /b >

and underline...

< u> < /u >

The thing about the large number for posting time happens on rare occasions...though it has actually never happened to me, so I haven't yet been able to diagnose why it happens.

As for accented syllables...it's easy to figure out...you just ask yourself "which syllable is louder?"

when you say "accented syllables" the first syllable of both words is the loudest AC-cent-ed SYLL-a-bles.

So it's one accented syllable followed by two unaccented. If you read one of my sonnets, you'll find that every other syllable is accented.

Hi gabemay, thanks for the comments on my pieces. I'm glad you enjoyed them. And yes, I really am a part time math and physics teacher. :)

Hi. When you post a new piece of writing, a copyright notice (copyright 2010 by gabemay, used by permission) appears at the bottom of the post. If someone decides to plagiarize your posts, it will be up to you to protect your copyright by pursuing the issue. I know of one case at least where a member reported a blog to Blogger for plagiarism, and got it shut down. But that would be your responsibility, not the site's. Hope that helps!
