A couple of days ago I got an Agatha Christie book for the library. Today I started it, and unlike other times, I flipped to the beginning and read the dedication. You gotta love her, it said this:
"To all those who lead monotonous lives. In hope that they may experience, at second hand the delights and dangers of adventure."
Don't you just love Agatha Christie. You gotta just sit and smile. "Top all those who lead monotonous lives", how awesome and descriptive of a lot of people. And let me assure you, Agatha Christie knows how to write in such a way as to immerse you in her story and and indeed show you "the delights and dangers of adventure".
Now it isn't just dedications that make Agatha Christie worthy of note. It's her wonderful, creative, and unbelievable writing. Though she has had a couple hit and misses, like her book 'Elephants can Remember', she has also written some classics.
Some particular favorites of mine are 'And Then There Were None', 'Murder on the Orient Express', and 'The Murder of Roger Ackroyd'.

At the moment I have none of my writing published. But I hope to change that before I finish high school. Right now I am in the middle of a couple different things.
- A picture book
- A poetic novel on an aspiring author
I also do NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).
