Chapter 1-Shafia
Chapter one of ‘The Great Gatsby’ lays for the foundations for the rest of the novel as it introduces the main themes and characters of the book. Although some characters, such as Gatsby himself, are not physically introduced to us, we are made aware of their existence through the narrative voice of Nick. Through Nick, the reader receives a biased but humorous portrayal of Tom, Daisy and Nick. 
The chapter begins with a witty commentary by Nick on a small piece of advice which was given to him by his father: “Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone [...] just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.” This introduces the theme of social class and wealth. Nick also suggests that how moral you are as a person is dependent upon your social class. I think that this is a very interesting remark.
On the second page, Nick begins to tell us about Gatsby and claims that he represents “everything for which I have an unaffected scorn.” He paints Gatsby as a hero of some sorts and perhaps a victim when he ambiguously describes something which “preyed” on Gatsby. It is only at the end of the chapter where we actually meet Gatsby. His reaching out towards the light is symbolic of his yearning for Daisy, for desire, for wealth and power and ultimately, the motif of ‘The American Dream’.
Nick then proceeds by introducing the characters of his cousin Daisy, and her husband Tom to us. He makes us aware of just how ridiculously rich and powerful Tom is by telling the reader that it “was hard to realize that a man in my own generation was wealthy enough to do that.” Considering that Nick himself is also very wealthy and attended the same, prestigious university (Yale) as Tom did, we are made to understand that Tom is able to purchase anything he would like and whenever we would like to. Nick appears to be very bitter and reproachful towards Tom. He makes his existence appear shallow and meaningless too. His power is also reinforced when Nick uses narrative techniques to show how Tom is able to stop the movement of the wind.
Both Daisy and her friend Jordan are dressed entirely in white. This could suggest the purity of the two women in the novel but it could also portray a sense of dullness or a lack of character. As the conversation sparks, we soon realise that Daisy is in fact, smarter than she appears. However, we soon realise that she believes her intelligence is one of her greatest downfalls and perhaps this is why she chooses to present herself as a pretty but superficial woman. We are made aware of this when she says “I hope she’ll be a fool-that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.” This is the first insight that the reader gains into the true nature of Daisy’s character. We realise that she may be undermining herself and putting up defences to protect herself.
The chapter ends on a cliff hanger, introducing Gatsby to us but not giving much away in terms of his physical appearance. As a reader, I think this had a profound effect as it left me anticipating some action and also left me intrigued, to know more about the character of Gatsby, whom Nick spoke so fondly of. It made me wonder whether Gatsby was more genuine and had more of a meaning to his existence than the other characters appeared to have.

Big Murder on Campus
Chapter 4--Part 2

It was quiet when I stepped into the large room. All the girls were clustered around televisions, glued to coverage about the murder. I stepped carefully into a shower stall and pulled the plastic curtain shut behind me. For several minutes, I stood under the hot liquid while it poured over my head and down my body, drowning my thoughts in the pounding spray and the rhythm of the water. When finished, I threw on clean clothes and hustled back to my room.

Finia reclined against the wall, a foot propped across her knee and a sketchbook leaned against her makeshift easel. A pencil was stuck behind her ear, and charcoal smudges marked her pale chin and forehead. I put my things away without a word, not wanting to disturb her concentration.

“Feel better?” she asked. I put my bathroom bag on top of the dresser in my closet before flopping face first onto the end of her bed, bouncing her like a buoy on a wave. She placed her sketchbook on her other side and, with care, positioned the charcoal on top of the drawing.

“Not really,” I said, taking a deep breath in and blowing it out. “I didn’t know her except as the girl who sat next to me in English Lit.” I shrugged. “It feels weird knowing I saw her just last night.”

“So tell me…,” she faced me, crossing her legs Indian style and putting her elbows on her knees. Knitting her fingers together, she tapped her chin with her two index fingers and narrowed her eyes at me. “What’s next?”

“Do I need to be lying on a couch for this interview?” I joked.

“Perhaps,” she said in her best Freudian accent. She smiled at me and gave my jean covered leg a light smack. “What are you planning to do?”

Before I could answer, my phone sang The Lion Sleeps Tonight by The Tokens. I dug it out of my back pocket and checked the display. “Do you know this number?” I asked her, tilting the phone so she could read the screen.

“No, but it’s a Halifax prefix. I’d go ahead and answer it. You never know.”

I accepted the call and put the person on speaker for Finia to hear as well. “Hello?” I answered.

“Is this Deanna Jameson?” It was an unfamiliar bass voice. Finia waggled her eyebrows suggestively at me. I covered my mouth to keep from giggling.

“It is. May I ask who this is?”

“Miss Jameson, this is Detective Dev Montgomery of the Halifax Police Department.” The playful look was wiped from both our faces. “You’re number has come to our attention in a case we’re investigating, and I wondered if you wouldn’t mind coming to the station to answer a few questions?”

A FASHION STORY.....Zelda

http://www.bethbriggs.com/09/a-fashion-story-zelda/

Her name is Zelda…..

She is a novelist and Georgia peach whose first thriller, “What the Sparrow Saw”, has just made it to the top of the New York Times Best Seller List! But don’t call her an overnight success….she has been submitting manuscripts to agents and publishers since she first stepped into Mr. McHandsome’s 9th grade English Lit class and was bitten by the writing bug…..A true optimist, she kept every rejection letter she ever got and today, in her softest, most ethereal Lela Rose watercolor dress, she will cast them all into the Savannah River……A real life heroine in her own thrilling story…..

Her creed: “I would advise anyone who aspires to a writing career that before developing his talent he would be wise to develop a thick hide.” Harper Lee

What’s your fashion story? I’d love to know!
