Check out my News! I like to put weird/random stuff in there, but it also contains very important... wait, who am I kidding? It's just weird and random stuff lol. But you should look at it anyway!
Hello there! My name is Stephanee (duh!) and I am a 22 year-old resident of Texas. I live with my boyfriend and our 2 cats, Arthas and Apollo. I just moved to Texas in January. Before that I lived my whole life in Southern California. I miss it sometimes (okay, I miss it a lot) but I'm happy to be here and am excited about making a life for myself in a new place. I love to read and write, and I'm so happy to have found Booksie, a place where I can do both!
I like to say that I've been writing stories since before I could write, because when I was a kid I was always the bossy one who decided what games we were going to play, what was going to happen, what character everyone was going to be, and what everyone had to say. That's kind of like writing stories, right? lol Somewhere my mom has notebooks filled with stories I wrote as a child; unfortunately, I don't have access to any of those. :( I wish I did because I'd love to read over them and see what interesting things I made up a billion years ago! I decided at the ambitious age of 9 that I wanted to write a novel... However, in true childish fashion, I think I wrote about 5 chapters and then lost interest. I continued to write short stories though. I didn't discover poetry until I was a senior in high school and had to write some for an assignment. I love to read poetry but it's not usually my chosen medium. But when inspiration moves me I don't deny her! Lately I've been writing poetry to purge some emotions and to get back in the swing of writing. Take a look at them and tell me what you think!
I feel like college quelled every creative impulse I ever had within me. Working a full-time job and going to school full-time left me with little to no time to write, and filling my mind with essays and "serious" literature kept me from even feeling the urge to take up my pencil and notebook again. For 4 years I didn't write a single word that didn't belong in a midterm or final paper. Isn't that sad? Now that I'm done and graduated (yay!) I'm desperately trying to regain some of my lost creativity. I used to find writing to be such a solace, and I'd love to rediscover that peace again. But it's slow going, and I beg all of you to be patient with me if my first attempts at writing are a bit on the not-so-great side.
Well, that's pretty much all there is to know about me!! If you have any questions feel free to ask. I'm a very open person and I love to meet new people, even if we never actually meet face to face! Thanks for visiting my Booksie page, I'd appreciate your comments and constructive criticism on any and all of my writings!
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to get emails from anyone on Booksie that I talk to regularly!! I'm never online for an extended amount of time (which is why I don't have AIM/Yahoo Messenger) but if anyone wants to get in touch with me just shoot me an email!
On an editorial note: I have a thing about misspelled words, typos, grammatical errors, etc. If I notice one in your work I'll probably point it out. Please don't be offended if I do. I consider it to be constructive criticism, and would be grateful if any one of you would do the same for me. After all, I think we writers have a common goal in joining Booksie: to improve our writing, by sharing it with others, in any way possible. Right? :)
