"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed."

I'm not sure what to say.

I'm a pretty boring girl with a pretty boring life. I just started college (DePaul Demons, woot!), I have a boyfriend and I have a mother that I argue with frequently argue with. Normal teenage stuff, really.

I love to read, and I'll read anything and every genre. My biggest influence is J. K. Rowling because she's just so amazing, you know? She just sat there on a train and thought of an idea that led to her becoming a billionaire. It's not the money that interests me (although that is pretty nice xD) but the fact that her one idea became this worldwide phenomenon that just connects people of different languages and of all ages. It's incredible, and someday, I hope to write something that powerful.

In terms of writing, I've been doing it since fourth grade, I think. I used to imagine all these crazy fantasies, and I had so many that I figured I'd write them down. And that's how that started.

I've only ever written fantasy stories, but I don't intend to keep it that way. As I get older, that fantasy world hasn't left me, but I have realized that there is much more out there, and I am very willing to broaden my writing horizons. But I'm not ready to let go of fantasy just yet >.<

I am a bit of a grammar Nazi, and I usually try and make everything as perfect as it can be, spelling and grammar wise (although some little mistakes tend to slip past me). I do live in the US although I wasn't raised here, and I grew up learning British English. I try not to make it affect my writing, but once again, there are a few occasions when it slips through the cracks.

I don't know what else to say...I'm very excited to try out this site and I'm very excited to meet like-minded and non like-minded people and get feedback and give feedback and I think I'll love it here.


I added my twitter to the site, figured readers should have a way of contacting me. Feel free to add me if you want! :D Please don't make me regret using my real Twitter account, lol.


Update as of 8/7/2014

I've been extremely busy since I got a job, and writing has sort of taken a backseat, unfortunately. Nevertheless, I keep trying to make time to write, both on my larger project and my shorter drabble/poems. Currently, I have The Extras on hiatus, because writer's block is completely overpowered and I have no idea how to continue it from where I stopped.

On the other hand, I have been working on my very first non-fantastical (non-romance focused) project, and it's coming along very nicely, if I do say so myself. I've only got a handful of (lengthy) chapters done, and I'm debating whether or not to wait on posting what I have. Unlike The Extras, I know almost exactly where this story is going, but I want to be able to have written a lot more before I post anything. But I think I'll give in and share it, although I might break up the chapters as much as I can, I suppose.

So that's what I've been up to so far. Hopefully I have more chances to visit! Ciao~
