Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Oxford University Press' new edition of William Shakespeare's works will credit Christopher Marlowe as co-author of the three Henry VI plays. It’s further evidence that the playwright collaborated with others on some of his most famous works.

Marlowe was born in 1564, the same year as Shakespeare. He was a playwright, poet, and spy for Queen Elizabeth I. Now he’ll share billing in the latest version of the New Oxford Shakespeare being published this week.

Scholars have long suspected that Shakespeare's plays included the work of others. But new methods helped researchers conclude that sections bore Marlowe’s trademarks.

"Shakespeare, like other geniuses, recognized the value of other people," Gary Taylor, a professor at Florida State University and principal investigator of the new work, says. "What is Shakespeare famous for? Writing dialogue—interactions between two people. You would expect in his life there would be dialogue with other people."

In Shakespeare's time, there was great demand for new material for the first mass-entertainment industry. A relatively small group of authors worked feverishly to meet this demand.

A team of 23 scholars looked afresh at Shakespeare’s plays. They used computers to reveal language patterns, trends, and associations—analyzing not only Shakespeare's words, but also those of his fellow authors.

Oxford University Press editors concluded that 17 of 44 works associated with Shakespeare had input from others.

Dear Diary 8/12/22
I guess you're wondering why I actually started this. It's probably because my brother is getting more distant. I don't know if its because of his failed spiderman project or something else, but I can't talk to him like I used to. I've though about reading his thoughts to actually find out what's wrong. But I would rather not invade his privacy. Oh, I guess I'd better explain myself, the whole telepathy thing can get confusing occasionally. My name is Elana, and I am one of the however many teenagers there are with superpowers. Yes, superpowers, just like the heroes in the movies. I am a telekinetic telepath, so I can read and control/influence minds, and lift objects with my mind. It's been pretty cool for the most part. The first few months after I turned 16 were a little rough because I had no idea what was going on, but I learned to control my powers, and now I'm about to go to college, and my 16 year old brother is avoiding me.
Ok, some background on the whole Spiderman project. My brother and I are kind of obsessed with Spiderman, seen all the movies, read most of the books, and combine that with the fact that random teens are getting superpowers, my brother was like "Hey we should totally make a spidersuit!" So that began a four year process where we tried to invent web-shooters and sticky/hands/feet. (to climb up walls.) But a few months ago there was an accident, and all our research went out the window, gone just like that. So he stopped wanting to be Spiderman.
Oh, and my brother's name is Jarred.
Dear Diary, 8/13/22
I realized that I didn't explain the whole superpower thing really well, so here I go. Early 2000 there were a few news stories about 16 year old kids who could do strange things, like turn invisible or fly. I wasn't alive then, but that's when teens started getting superpowers. One or two kids who had just turned 16 would gain superpowers. Those original kids, the one who didn't die, are now 38 and they started a college for superpowered young people.
Fast forward to 2020 I turn 16, and wake up with almost everything in my room floating. I panicked at first, but eventually I figured out how to set everything down. But not before loudly dropping a ton of things on the floor. So my entire family came in and the odd static in my head that I had barely noticed turned into the sound of all their thoughts.
"So Telekinesis?" My brother asked,
"Yeah, I answered, and judging by the noise in my head telepathy as well." I winced as a fresh barrage of thoughts assaulted my brain.
"That is so cool!! Hardly anyone gets two powers!" My other brother said.
"Yeah, cool, but my head hurts and my stuff is still floating." I said,
"Well I guess we'd better call the agency in town that works with the powered kids," Mom said. I nodded, then closed my eyes in an effort to stop the voices, what did all the books I'd read on this say about controlling telepathy? Oh it's almost 5:00, I have work soon, I'll continue this tomorrow.

@Abigail /this is wyn

That book sounds so cool!!!!!!!!!

@Abigail H

Cool story!! I like it a lot. I came up with one suggestion. Maybe you should introduce the brother's name a little sooner? Keep it up!!

Found this in my documents :)

I found this in my documents :). It's a knock-off of the prodigal son story. I wrote it when I was eleven years old.

The Prodigal Son (First Person from the younger son’s perspective)

Have you ever done something so bad that your parents never forgave you? I doubt it. Let me tell you a story about myself and how my father’s amazing love never failed.
When I was a young and foolish boy, I walked up to my father and said, “Yo! Give me some of the big bucks you got in the safe!” My father looked at me bewilderedly. “I’m tired of living with you! You never bought me the Rickenbacker 4001 Bass Guitar I wanted! It’s time I went out to seek my fortune as a YouTube star!” My father seemed heartbroken, but he gave me the money.
“Aw, sweet! I’m finally free!” I sang excitedly. I boarded a boat that would sail from the Mediterranean Sea to California. Everyone knows that cool YouTubers live in Cally with the sunshine and shuffleboard.
Once I arrived in the Golden State, I wasted no time in renting a fancy apartment (for the filming), buying myself a cat (for the silly cat videos), and posting videos on YouTube.
For a while, everything was great! I threw fancy parties and invited JoJo Siwa and Beyonce. (They obviously wanted to visit the coolest YouTuber on earth!) I even rented a mansion! Once day, I decided I didn’t want any adds on my channel. Everyone unsubscribed. Apparently, they were only watching my channel to see this dorky add that played every time. One day, I reached into my pocket and found I was helplessly broke! When faced between the choice of jail and being a slave to a board game company, I chose the board game company. There, I was sentenced to a lifetime of typing apples to apples cards. For the next three years, I typed nouns like trophies, buckets, and deep-fried everything. Mmmmm. Deep-fried everything sounded delicious! Without thinking, I started chewing on one of the red apple cards. “HOLY DWINA!” I shrieked. “THIS STUFF TASTES LIKE LUCKY CHARMS CEREAL WITH KETCHUP ON TOP! I’M GOING HOME!”
On the voyage back to the Mediterranean, (I had stowed away), I began to think of my father and older brother. They would probably be furious at me for leaving them to become a YouTube star. How stupid of me! A YouTube star?!
But I was completely wrong. Little did I know that my whole family had been following me on YouTube! They had been placing bets on the day I would come home.
When I walked up the path to my father’s house everyone rejoiced! “I saw all your cat videos!” My father exclaimed. “And that’s why we’ve decided to start our own family channel!”
So kids, If you’re ever in a very bad situation, (especially one that involves game cards), don’t hesitate to come home.

@Scarlett

That was hilarious. I don't tend to laugh that much but it did make me chuckle. Loved it. When did you write it?

@Abigail

Great story. I'm writing one with the 1st person point of view too. I just love those. They're always so unique. I'm very interested on the rest. I love how you're using the present time. If you end up publishing it you should definitely change the dates so it's relevant for people and maybe have the unfold during dates when people would read them. Also if you haven't read The Silent, you should. It's a more intense book meant for teens and young adults but it's very good. The author is a Christian I believe because it's from a Christian point of view and she doesn't make fun of Christians. Anyway, she also uses the 1st person and journal entries with some of her characters. If you've read it, let me know what you thought.

@all

Sorry, I skipped a few words. I always do that for some reason. I hope your mind can fill in the blanks for you. Lol

@Scarlett

Oh, never mind. I just reread your post. Wow! You have a very creative mind. I could never have come up with something like that at 11. Oh quick random questions for everyone: when do you think you found your love for writing? You don't have to tell me an exact age just a general area. Like for me: I was a preteen, so between 10 and 13. Also who showed you or did you figure it out yourself? I had a great curriculum called sentences to paragraphs. Shout out to anyone who used that at all in your life. Also has anyone published anything at a "young" age. By young I mean as a kid not an adult.

@Sara D

Wow, it's great that you found your love of writing young. I don't think I ever "found" my love of writing. I have always told stories to anyone who would listen. At around four, my main hobby was making books out of paper, markers, and a stapler. My first published work was when I was seven. It was a story literally called "Little Coop in the Big Woods" about my flock of backyard chickens. I try not to mention it for obvious reasons, LOL. I'm working on my third published work now. What have you been writing lately? I'm curious to see what kind of stuff you like to write. Also, how did you find your love of writing?

This is wyn

Hey, has anyone ever wrote the kind of book they want to read because they can't find very many books they like? I was just wondering cause that's what I do.

This is wyn @ Sara D

When I was pretty young I always dreamed of having a book that I wrote be at the library. But, I didn't actually start writing till I was like 10 or 11. I also haven't finished any books (yet) because I start a book, but then I end up not liking it and then throwing it away. But the book I'm writing now, I'm going to try to finish. :D

@Scarlett and Wyn

I'm currently writing a book based on the Novacom Saga from Adventures in Odyssey. There aren't very many Christian science fiction books I like so I'm writing a futuristic one about mind control. For those who haven't heard the Novacom Saga it's basically about this man who converts radio waves to brain waves to take control of the world. Everyone gets this box called the novabox. They cause people to buy things they don't want. Then they build these towers to send brain waves that will affect everyone. The main characters end up stopping them in the end. Sorry long explanation for a story. If you listened to the Novacom Saga let me know. Otherwise, you're missing out. You should listen to it. You can the whole series (30 episodes) for 25 dollars. Even if you're not a fan of AIO, I'm pretty sure you'll like this. It's pretty intense just to warn you but that's why it's my favorite.

Instead of novaboxes, I'm

Instead of novaboxes, I'm doing a chip placed into your arm where a watch might go that can be used as money, a phone or an apple watch. It's set a little over a century into the future. Robots are drivers for flying vehicles and that kind of thing. The plot is basically: the chip changes your personality and later on it will end up controlling your mind within a year of getting it. You have the opposite personality you had before. Curmudgeons become perky people and vice versa. The 3 main characters have to stop the bad guys. With the way my plots going I might have to make it 3-4 books. I'm not sure how many yet. It'll definitely take more than one book to finish it though.

@Sara D

That's an excellent story idea!! Please keep going with that.

@Belwyn

About this comment you wrote: "Hey, has anyone ever wrote the kind of book they want to read because they can't find very many books they like? I was just wondering cause that's what I do."

I think that all writers should be doing that. It's kind of what writers are for. Also, I hope you finish this next book!! I'm excited for you.

This is Wyn/ @ Scarlett

Thanks! : )

@ Scar/ From Bella

Ok, I'll do that! :) (It will give me an excuse to get on here) Also your story was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!etc.,etc., :-]

@Belwyn R

Aw, thanks so much!! :). It's fun to go back and read what you wrote when you were eleven years old :).

This is wyn

Happy September! And yay for new articles !

@Everyone

Do any of you guys know how often they update the articles?

This is wyn @Scarlett

I think they change them every 2 months, but I'm not quite sure.

@All

Has anyone ever tried the young writers workshop? If so, is it worth trying out? Also what did you think of it?

@Scarlett

Sorry I missed your question earlier. I've always disliked writing. When I was really young I'd often end my handwriting lessons in tears. I just didn't understand why I had to do it. Anyway fast forward a few years into the future. I went to a co-op where my mom signed me up for a writing class. They used the curriculum sentence to paragraph. I learned how to build sentences all the way to paragraphs. I even wrote an essay and started enjoying and now loving to write. Fast forward another couple years in 2020 I found out some people I'm close to wrote/are writing books, and I thought, I could do that. The last 2-3 years were ups and downs with book writing. I've ditched quite a few story lines that didn't work out and now am writing on the series I described above.

more of superhero story

Well I havn't been on here in a bit,
here is more of my superhero story
Dear Diary 8/14/22
Continuing narrative from yesterday:
Try no. 1 I attempted to imagine all the voices in my head as raindrops and pull them into a ball of water static. That didn’t work and I dropped 5 books onto the floor.
Try no. 2 I tried blocking out one voice at a time, humming songs and stuff - that sort of worked until someone broke my concentration.
“Maybe you should work on telekinesis first?” Jarred asked “It’s supposed to be easier to handle.”
“Ok” I said focusing on the floating objects. I tried to see where they were connected to me, and how my consciousness was holding them aloft. I reached out to one, a floating pencil, and felt around it before grabbing it. The moment I had it in my hand I felt something disconnect from me. It’s kind of hard to describe, kind of as if you were touching something and then suddenly stopped touching it. I set the pencil down. It didn’t float again phew.
Latching onto that sensation I had felt earlier I followed it. Yes, followed it, but not with my eyes with my mental touch. I had grown another sense, my mind had the ability to feel things that I wasn’t physically touching. Once I found the sensation it was almost easy to follow it to the floating object and will it to the ground as if I had physically lowered it.
Finally everything was on the ground and I realized that I had stopped hearing thoughts. There was a buzzing sensation in the back of my head that If I focused I could discern the thoughts of those around me but it wasn’t a ton of shouting inside my head anymore. And then I took that thought back as the buzzing exploded into 5 different voices.
Try no. 3 mental walls; I had a feeling that this one might actually work. I closed my eyes and then got distracted as the mental touch sensation overwhelmed me. I could sense everything in the room including the people, and their thoughts. Kind of like with the pencil my mind was linked to their thoughts. All I had to do I realized was disconnect from the people and then no more voices! So using the same technique as with the floating objects I disconnected from my family members’ thoughts and the buzzing stopped. I opened my eyes to find everyone looking expectantly at me.
“Did it work?” Jarred asked.
“Yes,” I replied relieved. “no more thoughts in my head. That’s a relief, Hey I think I can turn on my telekinesis!” I focused, connecting to my waterbottle, floating it off my desk into my outstretched hand. It was a little wobbly, but with practice I would probably get better.
So that’s how I got my powers, kind of weird am I right? Well, this spurred my brother on to continue working on Spiderman, but as I said earlier everything was vaporized so we stopped. Or more accurately he stopped and I’ve been too busy to work on it. Speaking of which I wonder if he manifested powers as well, since his 16th birthday was not long ago. Let’s see if I can catch him using powers!

@ Abigail

That sounds awesome!!!!!!!! The only thing I would suggest is this: I don't really feel like I know the characters. I enjoy books that I can really get to know the characters and feel their feelings. Maybe try to help us understand the characters a little more. Also, maybe give us some more information about the everyday sights: how the characters look, how their surroundings look, etc. I know, it being a diary format, that might look a little different, but like I mentioned before, I really like to get a picture of the story so I can really get "involved" in the story. Other than that, KEEP IT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's sounding really great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

testing

Does this page still work?

oops, sorry, yes it does

no one has commented on here for awhile, I was just checking. :)

@everyone

Just wanted to share that I actually finished my 1st draft of a novelette at 13,000 words! 1st time ever! It's kinda short, but hey it's just the 1st time.

@ Sara

Three cheers for you!!!!!!!!!!! That's awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@Sara

That is so great!! I'm hoping to finally finish my first story so this is an encouragement to me!

@ Kaitlana O

Yeah, keep it up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

@Kaitlana and Belwyn

Aww, thanks! I'm very excited! :)
@Kaitlana
Yay! I've succeeded in being an encouragement for another writer. I was hoping to inspire/encourage others to write through my own writing so that makes me happy! :)

@ Kaitlana

Definitely go for it! I did and here I am with a 1st draft completed. :) What's your book about (if you can't give me a summary yet [which I get, my own summary was hard to come up with] what's your genre)?

@Sara D

Sara, YOU DID IT!!!!! The hardest part of writing (I think) is finishing the first draft. You survived, awesome! Keep going with your story.

The First Three Steps for Aspiring Writers

One of the best storytellers in the world, Jonathan Auxier (author of Peter Nimble and his Fantastic Eyes, Sophie Quire and the Last Storyguard, The Night Gardener, and Sweep) posted this on his blog. I have rephrased it and changed it up so that it is not plagiarizing, but I think you all would love to see this. It's about the steps an amateur writer should take to get started.

1. First time writers don't get published based on outlines or rough drafts. To sell, you need a finish manuscript. That means the first step is to write a story that is absolutely bulletproof. Agents won't even take a look at sloppy manuscripts. They have (no kidding) hundreds of books to consider. Don't be afraid to spend YEARS on one book. You only have one shot. People will read your book and make up an opinion about you from that sample. Opinions are difficult to break. This does not mean perfection on your part, just your best.

2. The “Society of Children’s Books Writers and Illustrators” (SCBWI). They are a national organization. This group is a great place for both professional and beginning writers and illustrators to come together and talk through the business of children’s publishing. They hold annual conferences are usually attended by agents and/or editors who are looking for new voice. Many authors and illustrators met an editor at an event who wanted to read their bulletproof manuscripts. (See reason #1)

3. Query agents. The publishing industry is not a “it’s who you know” industry. Agents consider books from unknown writers every day. Nearly every writer gets pulled out of the “slush pile” by an agent or editor. Authors should query agents who will best understand your books and writings so they can sell it. This means research on the Writer's Market and finding agents. The internet is a good resource to find info about how to find agents.

A lot of these are about the more professional aspect of writing, but I hope it helps anyway.

@Everyone

How many of you plan to write as a career path? (You don't have to decide now, of course, but I'm just curious.) I definitely want to write children's novels and connect with young readers with stories for the rest of my life. I could totally see all of you doing the same!!!

This is wyn @Scarlett

I think it would be fun to write as a side job. I love writing books, but I don't think I'll make it my career.

@Scarlett

Thanks! In my opinion they're both tied as far as how hard it is. I think after getting through the 1st round of edits it will be easier because I'll have the storyline completed. ;)
I'm interested in writing as a career but we'll see. I'd love to self-publish and have a small business selling and writing my books. I've got time to figure it out though. ;)

@Sara D

Yeah, of course you have time. No need to rush. Anyway, I think that everyone should read often, even if they don't want to be a writer.

Hellooooo

How's everyone's stories coming along? I haven't written anything recently : ]

@Sara: The one I'm currently

@Sara: The one I'm currently writing is a medieval fantasy.
@Scarlett: When I was younger I wanted to be an author, but I'm a lot more interested in music now. I think songwriter is where I'm at right now :)

@Kaitlana O

That is so cool!! What instrument(s) do you play if any? Songwriting is really awesome!! It seems a little daunting though :).
I did two years of piano (before I stopped), learning guitar now, and vocals. I consider vocals to be my main instrument.
Any other musicians here?

This is wyn @Scarlett

I took piano lessons for a couple years so I know how to play it but, I'm not like really good at it. I have a lyre that I like and play sometimes. And for the past few months I've been learning violin (I am really liking the violin. It's hard but fun.) :D

@ Scar/ From Bella

I also learned the piano and violin and would LOVE to take voice lessons. I've tried writing piano songs and poems, but never actually writing a song with words! XD

@Scarlett

I play guitar and piano. I love singing too! What's your vocal range? (If you don't know, it's fine- I don't either XD)

@Belwyn @Katliana O (did I spell it right???)

@Belwyn, go for it!! Singing is so much fun. With the right training, I think that anyone can learn to sing. So cool that you have lyre experience! I'm jealous, LOL.

@Katliana O (did I spell it right???), cool! We have a lot in common :). I am physically capable of singing any female vocal part, but I am surprisingly most comfortable in high soprano. (For non musicians, that is the highest vocal range you can sing.) I often get mistaken for a straight-up alto because of my very low speaking voice. It's kind of strange, I know :). Are you in a choir?
