Writing has been my passion since I was 11 years old. I love creating stories from fiction, poetry, fanfiction. I enjoy writing movie reviews. I would love to become a creative writing teacher and leave the world inspiring minds.
'When a Stranger Calls' (2006)—A Movie Review
Horror movies are the exact reason why I don’t want to live in a house with open windows surrounding me. Released in 2006, When a Stranger Calls is a remake of the 1979 epic thriller of the same name. Jill Johnson is called to babysit. Except she is not alone. An anonymous caller keeps contacting her regarding the children she is babysitting. Jill must defend herself in a night of nightmares.
Gender Roles in Edgar Allen Poe
Edgar Allen Poe never wrote many female figures into his novels. If he did feature female characters, they were either unimportant to the story or killed off. Poe was a mysterious man who went through a lot of hardships. His biological mother died when he was only three, his adopted mom died from tuberculosis, and his marriages didn’t end well. Poe rarely had a female figure throughout his life, which may account to why there are so few women in his stories. All his stories seem to have a male lead, but over time critics have speculated that his story The Tell-Tale Heart may have a female narrator. When studying the text closely, there is no textual evidence that supports the narrator of the story is in fact male.
Growth in Children's Literature
The first chapter book I remember reading was Junie B. Jones by Barbara Parks. Junie B. Jones is a wonderful work of children’s literature as we follow the perspective of a little girl figuring out the world, friendship, and herself. I remember laughing out loud at so many moments while reading these books.
