Being a Teenager—Teens Can Write, Too! Blog Chain

So after finishing NaNo early, I’m pausing my insanely busy life to participate in another fabulous Teens Can Write, Too! blog chain. For those of you unfamiliar with TCWT, it’s a blog that provides information and advice to young writers, and it can be found here. Every month, TCWT has a blog chain featuring a specific prompt, and I think this month’s is particularly awesome:

“Use pictures and individual words to show what, to you, is the essence of being a teenager.”

(Click on the pictures to view the source. If there’s no source, the image belongs to me.)


















(Note the considerable lack of pictures in this portion of the post.)









Well, that’s about all I’ve got. Or at least all I’ve got time for. I could go on and on with this prompt, but I’ll stop here. If you want to see some of the other responses from this month’s chain, make sure to check out the other blogs participating!

  1. So many relatable pictures! I especially like the one about books being better than boys, because I personally feel I’m getting a lot more out of copious reading than endless and unsuccessful relationships. But, really, laptops, dogs, butterflies, food—you’ve clearly got it all covered. I love it!


    Do you know how to bake stuff similar to what is in those pictures? And if so why haven’t I moved to your town yet??? *salivates*

    This is a really fantastic post, and I especially love your personal touch to each of them. Also, that first picture? Amazing. I can’t believe you made it yourself. *bows down to you*

    • LOL! Yes, I do a ton of baking. Cinnamon rolls are one of my fav things to make from scratch, but I also do cheesecakes, beignets, pretty much any sort of yeast bread, cakes (I made an 18 layer one for my brother’s 18th b-day. So much fun!), and a bunch of miscellaneous stuff like cookies and pies. Moral of the story: Come to California. We have cookies. 😛

      And I’m so glad you like the art! Thanks for stopping by the blog. Now come move here. *waves cookie* 🙂

  3. Wow, you finished NaNo early! That’s an amazing feat, congratulations!

    It’s so awesome that you baked these yourselves (YUM) — I learned how to bake in Home Economics but I still suck. Ah well. The sleep section made me laugh, I feel you so much there. Beautiful pictures you’ve chosen!

    (Psst, here’s my TCWT post!)
