in the solar system
vanishing that
tended to disrupt
normal schedules."

"The Box"
Favorite Paragraph
"Thomas swallowed, wondering how he could ever go out there. His desire to become a Runner had taken a major blow. But he
had to do it. Somehow
he KNEW he had to do it.
It was such an odd
thing to feel, especially
after what he'd just
seen... Thomas knew
he was a smart kid- he
somehow felt it in his
bones. But nothing
about this place made
any sense. Except for
one thing. He was
supposed to be a Runner.
Why did he feel that so
strongly? And even now,
after seeing what lived
in the maze?" (86)
By James Dashner

Writing Tips
- If you don't want to swear then make up your own vocabulary
- Tell a decent part of the story through a character's thoughts
- Use a lot of dialog when trying to sort out answers
- Don't let the reader think that thy know what's happening. Basically use plot twists
- Cliff hangers keep people interested in the next book of the series
