"We're not crazy--we're insane. That's why we write what we write books."-Bri talking to me. I am a Sophomore in High School and I have been writing since I was ten years old. In High School, I am in a group of friends--we call ourselves the Nerd Herd. My two best friends are Jeff and Briana, but everyone in the Nerd Herd calls her Bri. Bri and I are actually in a relationship, and both of us are authors. However, I am trying to get her to publish her works like I have. My novels usually include characters based on my friends, but in the book I've been working on, every character is someone I know in real life. Jeff and Bri are two of the four main characters.
