Ugh Writers blog

Hello everyone, today’s post will be a little bit different that the traditional posts. Recently I have been having an extreme case of writers block, words have been dryer that the Sahara. I am not sure if it is because I have been stressed with classes and work or what the deal is. It could be that nothing really exciting is existing in the world of news today. Whatever it is, I apologize for the decrease in interesting news over the past week and a half.

Today, I left school to go home for the holiday weekend. It was a relatively long drive, and kind of boring. I had a relatively large headache which contributed to a decline in the enjoyment of my ride home as well. However, on my way home, I talked to my dad who is a fireman in a city where near I live and he told me some interesting news.

Today, in Dearborn at a community college, there was a homicide-suicide that occurred on campus. A 28 year old man was involved as well as a 20 year old woman. In a usually non-violent area, it is clear that this was unexpected. The two were found in a classroom in a Michigan community college. Not much was really known about the whole incident seeing as both people involved are dead. The main information available is that it occurred in an used classroom and a shotgun was used in the shooting.

There is still much investigation to undergo before the final results could be determined, but the area has been secured and the emergency alerts have been sent out to the students. Officials as well as many others have sent out their deepest sympathies to the family of the girl who is believed to have her life taken from her today.

I thought this was a pretty sad incident. It just reminds us that things that we take for granted everyday can disappear with just a flutter of a butterfly’s wings. Hopefully the family can find hope in the mist of all this negativity and that people will learn to appreciate what they have in their lives.

  1. Just when you think you ran out of news, the news finds you. I tried for the life of me to bring up the article, but you know school computers…whoo resnet…anyway, this truly would be a downer on what seemed to be not so hot of a trip home to begin with. I can just never understand what drives people to act out in such a way, and how I just love that the murdered rarely sticks around long enough to deal with the guilt and punishment.

    On a sort of unrelated and more pleasant note, I really like the language that you use in your writing. The metaphors, similes, and what not help make the story more…meaningful in a way. I also really liked your entry title this week. I thought it was creative and funny.

    Good luck with that blockage, hope you find some good news!
