Section One: Latest News
Participating in NaNoWriMo in order to get my butt moving on publishing my next book! So stories and other writings will be put on hold for this site!
I self-published Eighty-Nine Pounds! You can buy it here: http://www.amazon.com/Eighty-Nine-Pounds-Ms-Lauren-Groff/dp/1481866613/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1381682715&sr=1-1-catcorr&keywords=Eighty-Nine+Pounds
I've been busy with personal life stuff, work and writer's block.
Section Two: Autobiography
I'm just your average 19 year old fangirl. I hope to become a famous author someday, but I know it's a bit far fetched. I write original stories that I come up with, and I write fanfiction.
My plan right now is to become a chiropractor or a massage therapist. My boyfriend and best friend are supportive in my writing, and that's all I could ever ask for. They give me encouragement to continue writing, even when I lose faith in myself.
My younger brother means everything to me, and I'm so glad we've grown close lately. I'm so glad I'm reunited and living with my family again.
Some of my hobbies include writing (obviously), reading, finding FanFic, watching Doctor Who and sobbing, eating, sleeping, exploring the world around me, spending time with my boyfriend, and playing The Sims. I work at Charlotte Russe and even though it's only my second job, I love it more than my first job.
If you like Harry Potter, or Doctor Who, or Supernatural you instantly have a shot at becoming my friend. Or if you buy me pizza. I also love all Disney movies.
Mayday Parade is my all time favorite band, I could listen to them for days. Imagine Dragons. Passion Pit. The Weeknd. All Time Low is another, but it's more of a guilty pleasure. I like other artists, there's just too many to name.
Section Three: Pieces I'm Working On
June, Keeper of Secrets
Not a Cure
Section Four: Reading Requests and Fans
So I've come to realize that there are people who just fan me without reading any of my work. So from now, I will be checking that you commented on at least one of my works, before fanning me. I will do the same for you in return. If I like your work, and comment on it, then I will fan you. *Do not expect a fan in return just because you fanned me*.
As far as reading requests, I might be a bit slow with them sometimes. I do not accept reading requests for full novels.. Ask me to read the first chapter, and I will be happy to do so. If I like it enough, I will keep reading on my own time. If you ask me to read an entire novel, your request will be denied. Please give me at least 72 hours to complete your reading request.
I try to provide constructive criticism, but it's not always possible depending on the quality of writing. If I take the time to write you a well thought out comment, please do the same for me. I try not to simply say "KMU or loved it!" as that doesn't provide you with much feedback.
I understand it's hard for some people to take criticism, so I try to be nice about it. But please, do not get mad at me for giving you criticism when you gave me the reading request in the first place.
I know we are all some sort of authors on here, but if any of you have a writing request, and want me to write something, I'd be more than happy to! You can leave a comment on my page or send me an email!
One last note here, please do not leave comments on my work advertising your works. Quite frankly, it's rude because that's what your own page is for. I have not had this happen yet, but if or when it does, your comment, no matter how constructive or positive, will be removed if you advertise your work on mine. I will also notify you on your page that your comment was deleted, and give you the opportunity to comment again, properly. If you advertise on my work again, I will revoke my right to accept your reading requests. If you cannot show me the respect of not advertising, I will not show you the respect of accepting your reading requests.
