Hey. You can call me Artie. I'm a socially awkward college student who like to write in her free time. Small, weird, prolix, introverted, supremely sarcastic, liberal-minded, and a general pain in the ass. Let's be friends. To be honest, I'm not really sure what to write here, what's relevant to tell you all. So I guess I'll just write about what to expect from my stories...? In my writing, I put a high precedence on logical continuity, believability, relatable characters, and good grammar (What can I say? Daughter of an English teacher here). My stories unfortunately take me EONS to finish because of my craptastic organization skills and proclivity to be a bit of a perfectionist. So I apologize in advance for that. My stories virtually always have an element of romance to them. Somewhere in my is a highly suppressed, deeply romantic girl much too shy to shine, I guess. But I don't like that to ever be the only important element in my story. I think it makes for weak storylines and weak, annoying, flat characters. I like there to be mystery and drama and humor and all things that make up for a well rounded story, ya' know? Put the stakes up high, or else nothing would be worth it for the characters to do. And if nothing in a story is worth being done, it is even worth reading? More than anything, I love it whir I fall in love with my own stories, and when it becomes something that makes people anxious to get tot he next page, that makes them think when they've finished it. Some writers just have a way of creating worlds with their writing. I mean, look at Harry Potter. The depth of the Rowling creating is incredible, and she starting writing it on a freaking napkin. I really admire people that have that power. A fair warning for the very innocent, conservative, or faint of heart: my stories can sometimes be graphic, at times disturbing, and I really don't have an issue with curse words. They sometimes contain possible triggers, but I want to be clear that I NEVER in my stories try to paint harmful or destructive behaviors or attitudes as desirable or acceptable. That being said, and this goes for all users here, if you don't like something, don't read it. Don't rip people down or insult them just for the sake of being a &*&%@$^. Give constructive criticism when you have a critique for somebody's story. I hope you stick around, and I hope you like what my brain spits out. Pleas never be afraid to comment on my work. I love reading comments and knowing that people cared enough to say something to me!
