My name is Deserea and I am a hope to be published writer. I am enthralled with the fantasy world and I have many stories which I have created which I would like to share with you all. I enjoy writing, reading, tarot reading, and many other activities. I am a darker writer, so all of my stories include, death, pain, incest, and gothic themes. I am an old fashioned person who enjoys the old and vintage areas of life and this shows through within my writing. Many of my friends have told me that I write like Anne Rice; though I would never comare myself to another author, this is an insult to both. I feel extremly at home among my writings and this is why I write so much and why I also would like to become a published author.
This may be hard to believe but when I was younger; I was not connected to writing at all, in fact quite the opposite. I used to spell horribly and puntuate horribly (Still do is the opperative word here) and this prevented me from really trying my hand at writing because I believed that if you are not immediatly good at something that you must just give up and forget all about it. I was terribly wrong. I began getting interested in writing more and more as I grew and when I hit 20 I was ready to really take a chance at my writing ability and see how it worked out for me. (I was an artist by trade, so you can imagine how all the rules of writing perfectly daunted me so.) I began slowly writing and taking my first steps as a baby writer in order to familiarize myself with the process and slowly I began liking it more and more, until I decided that I did not care about my weaknesses; writing was something I felt like I was born to do and that it as a hidden gift within me. Yes, I still make punctuation mistakes and spelling is still ot my strong suit however, I feel like now I have the strength to continue my journey with writing and make this my friend and allie. This is the story of how I began writing and why I have come here to share my work with my fellow writers.
A bit about myself. I am 22 years old and I work full time at a jewlery store while going to school for teaching. I am currently living in Colorado and I enjoy this place very much. The winter here is brutal though the spring and summer is very nice with much rain. I am a practicing witch and this practice and religion keeps me strong and determined within my life to stay on track and aim for m goals, no matter how impossible they may seem at the time. My God is Cupid and he is always there for me. I always wondered to myself why I felt such a connection to the image of the cherub and now I know. It was because Cupid was always there for me and guiding me through.
My writing style is more based after stories and poetry and I have much to show my fellow writers. I look forward to meeting all of you and learning about everyone here!
