Hi  ;)

 

Thanks bunches for checking out my profile! I don't know what brought you here, but I'm glad it did! So let me tell you a little bit about myself. That way, I'm not a complete stranger.

 

First off, let me give you a brief summary of my writing. I write a lot. Mostly novels. I have so many stories that I am in the process of writing but I haven't posted them all here. I only have two of my novels posted and I'm still working on both of them. Most of the things I have posted are a couple of short stories that I wrote just for fun. Check them out if you get a chance. I do love it when people read and comment on my writing, that's why I put it up. Thank you so much to all of you who have!!! It means the world to me! One more thing: I don't consider myself much of a poet, but every once in a while, I write one that I'm not embarressed to publish. So you won't see many poems from me, but you might see some. 

Now let me tell you about reading your work. I would love to read it. Keep in mind that there are lots of reading requests going around and I already have a lengthy reading list. If you post onto my wall with a reading request, I may never get around to it although I try. The best way to get me to read your work is to comment on mine and become a fan because I try to make time to read the work of those people. I'm a picky reader, though, and there are things that I won't read. I'm okay with pretty much any genre except science fiction, which usually bores me. I'll make an exception, though, if I think it's worth it. Whether or not I read it mostly depends on the content. I love reading stories but I don't like reading explicit sexual content, gory violence, obscene language, and stuff like that. Don't give up hope, though! If it's an exceptionally good story, then I may overlook it. But I'm not making any promises.

 

Now a little bit about me personally. First, I need to say that without coffee and cozy little coffee shops, I couldn't be a writer. I owe caffeine a HUGE thank you!! It has never failed me!

 

I ♥ you, Starbucks.

 

Here are some quotes about writing that I have come to love.

If a doctor told me I had six minutes to live, I'd type a little faster. ~ Isaac Asimov

I get up in the morning, torture a typewriter until it screams, then stop. ~ Clarence Budington Kelland

Writing is physical work. It's sweaty work. You just can't will yourself to become a good writer. You really have to work at it. ~Will Haygood

When in doubt, have a man come through the door with a gun in his hand. ~ Raymond Chandler

I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice, and then going away and doing the exact opposite. ~ G. K. Chesterton

You can take for granted that people know more or less what a street, a shop, a beach, a sky, an oak tree look like. Tell them what makes this one different. ~ Neil Gaiman

No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader. No surprise in the writer, no surprise in the reader. ~ Robert Frost

 

I love to read and I think it's very important for anyone who wants to be a writer! If you don't read good books, you won't write good books!

 

Besides reading and writing, Broadway is my other love. I adore the musicals! In my opinion, they are one of the best forms of at out there! Below are some of my favorite shows.

 

WICKED

 

WEST SIDE STORY

 

PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (STUPID, RAOUL!!!)

 

INTO THE WOODS

Those are just a  few of my favorite show though by no means are they my only favorites. The list goes on and on!

I always find it hard to write about myself because there is so much to say that my mind always goes blank before I write anything because I can't figure out wich things I should say. One thing I will say though, is that I can't play an instrument :( but I really wish I could play the piano. I would also like to play the violin, but mostly piano. I had piano lessons and know a little bit, but I'm not able to play really well.

I know it doesn't look like it, but I don't really like bright colors too much. I wear different colors but they are mostly darker shades of various pigments. Another thing, I'm twenty years old and in my second year of college so I don't have much time for writing which makes me sad because I love to do it.

Before I go, let me say that I like to read others people's work but I also like to give my honest opinion so if you can't handle constructive critism (which is only offered to help make you a better writer) then please think twice about asking me to read your work. Chow!
