So here's a preview for the next NEXUS book. Here's a little backstory first.
I recently had a conversation with another Author and we discussed how we love alliteration. It reminded me of an assignment in one of my college writing courses.
The assignment was to write a poem. I HATE POETRY. I'm not a fan of reading it, and even less a fan of WRITING IT! So I just really wanted to blow this assignment off. So I decided I would do the ultimate alliteration! I was really just f*cking around.
Turns out the day we turned these in, there was a substitute that day who was a Published Poet! He reviewed everyone's work and had a discussion in class and asked if anyone considered themselves a poet. No one raised their hand. He looked at me with shock and said, "NOT EVEN YOU?!" I said no. He was surprised. He loved my poem. Hahahah. Okay, so now I am pretty proud of this piece and I decided I'd include it in the next Nexus book as one of Max's assignments. And well...it is ALLITERATION TO THE MAX! ;)
