"Be a first rate version of yourself, not a second rate version of someone else." Hi. I'm Mercedes Storm. I love to write. I just finished NaNoWriMo and might possibly be on a freestyle streak. I believe that too much angst is written in the world, yet I hypocritically write more. I dream of writing a story completely unrelated to real life in every way, yet every time I try something kills it painfully. Most of my writing is probably worth only a small amount of your time. People tell me I'm goth, with my dyed hair and all, but although I look like one, I like to avoid the stereotype. Stories: Acid Rain- Random poetry. Drowning- not my best, just a random angsty thing that I actually hate; Salt Water- Just a drabble, sort of an explanation of unrequited love using metaphors; So Far Away- Poem based on a real life experience that really hurt.
