"My past has not defined me, destroyed me, deterred me, or defeated me; It has only strengthened me." If you rate me low - tell me why. Otherwise it's pointless. I'm here to improve as a writer, so help me do that. Profile pic is here The songs that keeps going through my head recently - Warrior - Demi Lovato The Books I'm currently reading: Pure - Julianna Baggott Fall of Night - Rachel Caine (Book 14 in Morganville Vampires series) So, you appear to have come across my little corner? Welcome! :) Have some random facts about me xD - I work for the NHS I have an unhealthy addiction to kinder chocolate I waste too much time shooting zombie on Left 4 Dead I like music for one of two reasons - the lyrics resonate with my own feeling, or its possible to dance like a complete fool to it! I love snow, even though the lack of sunlight during winter brings me down When I'm writer blocked, I tend to do puzzles. Surprisingly effective o.O I like reading...to the extent that I have four bookcases c: Most of which are the supernatural genre xD I like using the word "dear" a lot :) I'm a army brat, though my dad quit a few years ago. I still identify with the term. I'm not really straight or gay, if I meet a girl that makes me happy, then good. If it's a guy then good too. I don't care enough about it to give myself an orientation I guess lol. Want to know more about what goes through my head? feel free to read Rants with Myself :) (Pre-warning - there be over dramatic reactions, depressive stuff and silly stuff within these). So far my stories are - Solos Finished Ones (Both are first drafts - being improved on) Tainted Ties - Rissa life used to be normal, it consisted of school, friends and most importantly, her parents. that was a year ago. Now her life is on the dirty streets of London. Then she meets a strange boy and the mystery of her parents death becomes that little bit more mysterious to her. Hunted - The zombie apocalypse on its own is hell on earth. But when some zombies can talk and think it's a whole other level of trouble. (In the process of editing this, once that's done I'll start work on the second one) Blood Carnival - My story for NaNoWriMo 2012, which i hit 50k for, though part of is the first chapter of book two Blood Hunt. When twins Zoe and Glenn decide to check out a visiting carnival, they never expected to find the father who abandoned them before they were born. Or to discover creatures best left in horror stories and far away from the realms of reality. --- Incomplete Ones (BC is draft-god-knows-what-number, AC is a third draft and CM is just a random experiment type story.) Blood City - This is my big baby, the big old vampy one that I've been drafting and re-drafting over and over, I honestly have no clue what number draft this is, but I hope you guys like it. Any feedback welcome! :) Read some Facts about the world if you want. (In the process of re-planning this one) Blood Hunt - Book two after Blood Carnival. Project UGI (Working Title)- Andrea is the star pupil of her college, but other than that her life is normal. Then the government takes her to a secret compound where she learns the source of her smarts. And that aliens exist. Aliens that are heading for Earth. Gamma is an experiment gone wrong. Half his DNA is human, the other half alien. He's lived his whole life in the compound because he's too dangerous to be amongst humans. Gamma's every touch carries with it a huge risk of severe radiation poisoning. Beta is coming for Earth, despite various warning from her kind not to. She's determined to get what she came for. No matter the costs. Catch Me - A run-of-the-mill normal story about a bunch of school kids enjoying adolescence and all the confusing things that come with it. It also has cute gay boys! ^.^ My first serious attempt at a non magic/vampire/weird story :) Foreign Stars (Working Title) - Slightly sci-fi alien romance story with some action thrown in from time to time.
