"I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control, and at times hard to handle, but if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."~~ "Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous that absolutely boring".~~ "I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it." Howdy there..my friends call me 'Shusta', and so can you. I love to write, it's my absolute passion. I write ANYTHING fiction! Imagination is a wonderful thing. If I happen to remember a good dream, I take that, blow it up, and create a whole 'story' around it. However, I do have a problem with switching back and forth between past and present. If that happens, be sure to tell me. UnfortunatelyI do my best writing at night, when I know I'm supposed to be sleeping, but can't. Anyone else the same? I consider myself very free and strong-willed, although sometimes I picture the image I want myself to be and focus too much on that, live too much in my head. I always give second chances, even when they aren't always deserved. Get on my bad side, though...well, we'll just hope we don't have to go there. I look way younger than I actually am, which comes in handy when there's a "12 and younger" discount, but is very annoying when I'm treated like a child. I'm really short, and feel free to make fun of me. I believe in a million things at once, but that's just what makes me me. I am a firm believer in freedom. No one anywhere can tell you how to write. No one can tell you what to believe, what to wear, what to think. We're all individuals. Out of 100 billion galaxies existing in 100 billion star systems, out of 7 billion people, you have your own own unique genetic makeup. Your thumbprint is yours alone, you can create art, and write a song and create music. You are depended upon by others that love you. You are enormously significant. HOWEVER, in a world of 7 billion people, on one planet, out of eight, out of 100 billion solar systems, in one galaxy, out of 100 billion galaxies, you are enormously insignificant. I always think of that whenever I have a tator-tot moment (it's a long story, but basically, a tator-tot moment is when you completely break down because of something really stupid and obsolete, but at the time it seems really important). Oh, a little about myself, I guess? I have long brown (not blonde, just light brown) hair, black eyes that get squinty when I laugh (which is a lot), and size eight feet. I believe in getting BOTH sides of the story. Like what I said earlier, with the significant and insignificant, BOTH sides of the story. It all depends on perspective. I'm a big pro and con person, and do the 'compliment sandwich'. I give a compliment, tell what I or anyone else needs to work on, and then end with another compliment. For example, I can write a lot, I have a problem with rambling, but I can almost always keep someone entertained.And I'm rambling now, so I'll just stop.
