Olivia: A Writer

The Story of a Hoplessly Eager Writer

I'm a Writer Who . . .

I am a very enthusiastic writer! I love to write whenever and wherever I can! Creating my blog last year was very exciting, because I could share my work with whoever wanted to read it! I am almost always willing to share. Of course, sometimes I hit a wall, and my writing sounds very forced and choppy. Then is a time I'd be less willing to share. I love to write short entries, but I have commitment issues when it comes to a novel. When I'm writing short things, however, I tend to make them longer than they should be. I don't know why I do it, but my personal narratives always turn out to be three and a half pages long.

A Memorable Experience

Second grade was the time I had started to consider myself a writer. We were writing folk tales. Of course, I was being my slow self, and didn't end up finishing writing my final draft, so I read the story out of my writers notebook. It was about an elephant who was on a quest. I don't remember why, but I do remember there was an owl involved. I thought my story was incredible. At the time, I thought I was a marvelous, accomplished writer. To me, this story holds a lot of personal value. I've been an enthusiastic writer ever since.

Sixth Grade Goals

  • I'd like to try out different genres this year. I'm getting a little bored of staying in my comfort zone.
  • I want to write a story/entry using previous ideas. I don't want to waste them!
  • I want to try to write a mystery. It seems like it would be fun having so much suspense in a story...

About Me

My name is Olivia Lee Graner. I have an eight year old brother named John (at Schneck), a twelve year old dog named Bella (with severe separation anxiety), a four year old goldfish named Mango (Yes. He's very old). I'm a theater geek - this past winter I was in the production of Madeline's Christmas with the Atlanta Children's Theater. And I've been in many other plays, as well. I love to sing! I sing anything, anytime, anywhere. I am me, and I don't want to be anyone else! "Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind" -Doctor Seuss
