Hey ! Some stuff about me :I LOVE reading and writing and spend most of my spare time doing that. I read all kinds of books and love a lot of different authors. I love a lot of the great writers here on Booksie. I also like spending time with my friends.So far I've written/started writing three novels here on Booksie :
And quite a few poems ,don't ask (you probably wouldn't anyways XD) but i don't consider them good enough to be put on here so don't bother looking ! I'm just an amateure writer but i'm learning so don't mind the mistakes and the wierd style. I'll try to answer every comment and I welcome critics as I know they mean well and help me progress ! Oh and naturally I LOVE the little orange boxes !

Writing comes more easily if you have something to say. ~Sholem Asch
The only cure for writer's block is insomnia. ~Merit Antares
When you are describing,
A shape, or sound, or tint;
Don't state the matter plainly,
But put it in a hint;
And learn to look at all things,
With a sort of mental squint.
~Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll)
A synonym is a word you use when you can't spell the other one. ~Baltasar Gracián

Do not put statements in the negative form.
And don't start sentences with a conjunction.
If you reread your work, you will find on rereading that a
great deal of repetition can be avoided by rereading and editing.
Never use a long word when a diminutive one will do.
Unqualified superlatives are the worst of all.
If any word is improper at the end of a sentence, a linking verb is.
Avoid trendy locutions that sound flaky.
Last, but not least, avoid cliches like the plague.
~William Safire, "Great Rules of Writing"
If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn't brood. I'd type a little faster. ~Isaac Asimov

Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia. ~E.L. Doctorow
A good style should show no signs of effort. What is written should seem a happy accident. ~W. Somerset Maugham
