"Have you also learned that secret from the river; that there is no such thing as time? That the river is everywhere at the same time, at the source and at the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the current, in the oceans and in the mountains, everywhere and that the present only exists for it, not the shadow of the past nor the shadow of the future. Siddhartha, Hermann Hesse" Sup, brah? I'm Deirdre. Nice to meet you. I love to write all sorts of things, from novels to short stories to poems. I tend to veer towards realistic or historical fiction, both in writing and reading. I can survive on hot tea, burritos, composition books, and pop-punk alone. I'm new to this site, so if anyone's willing to show my the ropes, it would be quite appreciated. And I love giving feedback (I'd like to be an editor someday), so if you have anything you'd like me to look at, just let me know! I'll be sure to give a comment with both praise and constructive criticism.
