1st Person Gets the Glory, 2nd One Not So Much

I've been writing comics. They're called 1st Person Gets the Glory, 2nd One Not So Much. There are lots of them. Mom said that even though I'm not really learning anything new, I'm getting lots of practice in writing and creativity and that's kind of like learning. So I thought I would put one of my comics on my blog. I hope you like it!

Mystical Mummies

     Egyptians believe that people that die go to the afterlife. The afterlife is also known as the field of rushes. King tut was once a egyptian pharoh. His real name was tutinkamen (tootincomen).
     To make a mummy first the eqyptians dehydrate the body. They use natron from wadiel natrun. Then they remove the internal organs. To take out the brain they use a sharp object and slice the head open.

Great Ghosts

     Ghosts are a myth that lots of people believe. Another myth is a haunted house. To some people ghosts are scary. To me there not because if there ghosts, when they try to hurt you they'll go right through you.
     Ghosts are usually explained as the "undead." That means souls rummaging around terrorizing people. A haunted house is a place where ghosts and other monsters live. People are scared of them because strange things happen.
