    It is absolutly amazing!!

Anyway Grace stop lol. I could talk for hours! I had to do a 15 minute presentation on it as well and I got so carried away.

    I love volcanoes but at the moment Vesuvius is my favourite

    These things are never so bad, especially as the project will fit the word count. I just wrote 30 000!
    Piercings:
    Left ear: 2 x lobe, tragus
    Right ear: 3 x lobe, forward helix
    Navel

    Want:

    Oh my word! 30 000? It just worries me because I've never written anything like 5000 words and I'm out of practice at extended writing type things. Also I tend to struggle with things that are unstructured like that

    I wouldn't worry... Yellowstone National Park (only a 40 mile wide Calderra) is overdue an eruption. If that blows then Vesuvius will be the least of your problems >.<

    But yes, the overpopulation in modern day Naples means that the death toll will be massive the next time around. Let's just hope they see it coming in time! Although I suppose another pyroclastic flow type eruption could take a couple of days before it comes back down to earth. Maybe that will help them :p

    Yep, that was pretty hard. Now I feel I can just write 10 000 in a day! You just need to work out what elements you need to cover, and make yourself a structure so you can divide it into smaller, more manageable chunks, and it wont be so bad.

    basically what i was gonna say is do the EPQ it isn't as hard as it seems to write 5000 words.

    and i wrote a novel about vesuvius and yellowstone and how i cant wait to be a volcanologist monitoring volcanoes. I cant believe i lost it all :(
