Hello Booksie Readers,
Here's a brief outline of who I am and why I am doing this:
When I was very young I remember always asking my mum to buy me notebooks so that I could write my stories: For some reason they always contained an ambulance...
As I grew older I began to realise I was very interested in the 'dark side of life' and began to learn about the Gothic scene. It's not all doom and gloom nor is it about wallowing in self-pity; cooped up in your room. If I want to wear black all the time it doesn't mean I'm miserable; it's my way of expressing myself just as the rest of society does. In fact, I'm very sporty and, of course, would love to live forever!
Fairly recently a German gothic/electro group crept into my life; reignited my youth and whisked me back into the 80s :-) Their lyrics can be extremely deep-mainly based around love and the pain it can cause (particularly if one of you is a vampire and the other mortal). Or, if you think or feel you're different to those around you-in any way. Of course, that's not all they sing about... The dark side has plenty of other subjects to tempt us with!
When I'm listening to them I see pictures in my mind's eye, which gave me this idea to turn them into stories. Well, at least try to...
How do you decide if you want to live forever? Do you really believe that you can love someone for eternity? I am a firm believer in loyalty, truth, discipline and do like a night on the town. However, I'm not sure I could live in darkness indefinitely. (Wouldn't mind being able to cross over every now and then though!)
CONSTRUCTIVE criticism welcome, but I will not tolerate rudeness in any shape or form. I am an ex stage & theatre dancer therefore, not under any illusions of being a prolific storywriter !
Just a note to those of you who like reading fan-fiction: Take a look at the 'graphicparamedic' page. If you watch an English medical drama called 'Casualty', then you may find it interests you.
Now for something that is irritating rather than annoying:
We are all on this site because we like reading and writing...am I correct? So, is it not polite to provide a little comment when you have read someone's work? It doesn't mean you have to continue reading the whole book or any other work that person has produced; just a hint of acknowledgement is fine.
Please read on...
When someone requests that I read a piece of their work, I am only too happy to oblige. However, when I've unselfishly devoted my time to that person I am slightly miffed when the same courtesy is not reciprocated. Surely, I shouldn't have to ask you to return the favour when it should be common decency. My time is just as precious as anyone else's so don't make promises you don't intend to keep.
