a frustrated writer and an avid reader. A self-proclaimed bookworm.
My real name is Kaye. I sort of dislike my name because it came from a dictionary (I think my mom is lazy to think about other names). If you want to know about that story, just ask me. I am 23! Yes, I am in my early twenties so don't be fooled by my photograph. I just look young. LOL! My friends claim I don't belong in the 21st century. They also say i'm outrageous, a loon, complicated, mysterious, and a whole bunch of contradicting personalities . I can be childish at times (if it would suit me).
I am overly protective of my friends and family and would rather sacrifice myself to keep them from harm (I am that good!).
I am short...petite...cute(LOL). I am only 5'1" in height. I am proud that I am small...it has its advantages.
I love to dance aside from writing and I had won third place in a Latin Dance competition in school. My fave is the Samba. I like swimming better than running (have fear of stress related fractures).
I like all things kawaii (that is "cute" in Japanese). *Why am i telling you all this?
I LOVE THE RAIN! Frolicking in the rain, standing under the rain and getting soaked to the bones... Love it...
I absolutely adore cameo necklaces.
I have been writing since I was in the first grade but i didn't have the guts to publish any of them. Most of the poems I wrote either got lost or my mom threw them away. I am a fan of young adult books, historical fiction, historical romance, suspense, mystery and the occasional kids books. I read my first historical romance when i was twelve--or thirteen-- entitled MY HEART'S DESIRE by Andrea Kane. Over the next few years, I have been frequenting my fave bookstore to buy historical romance books. Over the next few books i had purchased, i had expanded my interests to the genres i had mentioned. My room almost looks like a mini-library; it houses over 100 books--and counting! My friends constantly tease me about it.
I do not like to read anything that has vampires or werewolves in it (blame Twilight). I dont like to read anything that has the typical helpless female as the main character. They are stupid and senseless and just plain annoying. I don't like anything that is soooo overly sexual or too corny or just plain too much. IT SPOILS EVERYTHING!
I had written my only surviving short story when i was in the 8th grade and i will publish it here soon( i just need to find it--misplaced it somewhere). Its funny that i am having difficulty writing a contemporary piece but when I write historical fiction, it is so easy.
I believe that patience is essential when writing and it is quite normal to have "writer's block" every now and then. As the old adage goes: PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE.
