"Without tradition, art is a flock of sheep without a shepherd. Without innovation, it is a corpse." - Winston Churchill UPDATES: - (12/1/10) I've gotten my fiftieth rating, ranking me #4 in the Protagonize Top 50. I honestly still can't believe it, but I need to thank the people that have helped me along the way and kept me writing, as well as the people that have rated my stories. Thank you so much! :D - I've been featured on September 25, 2010. Thank you, community of Protagonize! I couldn't be happier, and I'm glad you're enjoying my work. :) Overview: Hey there! I'm just a partly-sane girl with a passion for all of the fine arts. I guess you could say I'm a budding writer/film-maker, as I generally write screenplays and plays. I started writing a few weeks before I joined Protagonize and now I'm hooked--can't say I wasn't warned, though. :) About Me: Who am I? A question that's definitely been unanswered for a couple years now. Shall I attempt to answer it? I absolutely love music and it's the number one thing that inspires me to write. Currently, I've gotta say that my favorite bands are Arcade Fire, Pavement, and The Cold War Kids. Because I'm so passionate about music, I used to play a lot of piano, taught myself to play guitar, and I'm currently teaching myself how to play ukulele (in a suburban band).Speaking of: I'm looking for songs to learn on uke. If you have any suggestions, don't be afraid to drop me a line. I'm an honest and kindhearted person (as far as I know), and I would rather heal someone than hurt them. I hate inflicting damage on anyone and I am generally the shoulder to cry on. But I'm also very sarcastic. In a GOOD WAY!(I've recently taken the Myers-Briggs personality test. I'm an INFJ.) I am also a bit of an insomniac (I'm writing this at midnight, and that's early for me). I fall asleep really late just because I have so much I want to do during the day. But I'm never tired, strangely, unless I get about two or three hours of sleep. Language and words interest me greatly. I find most languages very pretty and extremely interesting, including German (which is one of my favorites). I'm also attempting to teach myself Welsh. So far, I only know the letters and their pronunciations, but I'm getting there. Oh, by the way, if you just read over this whole thing, here's a cookie.
