Profile Information

One thing must me made clear almost before anything else is said, I am no editor. My grammatical skills fall many leagues from par and my spelling is, to be frank, atrocious. I also have this nasty habit of randomly capitalizing letters, or in some cases not capitalizing them at all. I also have the horrible reputation for not completely finishing the novels that I begin. If you would bare with me, through my many short comings I will attempt to make it worth your wile.       All that aside, I will tell the story I fear I have the most difficulty with-my own. From an early age, I loved creating stories in my head. I was a late reader due to a eye problem and didn’t really start reading until second grade, but I soon made up for that. After that I began my life-long habit of never setting a book down until I've finished it. My mother and I used to engage in fight almost every night because I would stay up long past my bedtime, reading. At one point she had confiscated every single light bulb in my room, and two flashlight, so that I wouldn’t stay up and read. Fortunately for me, I still had one more flashlight-a little LCD pen light stolen from my older brother-in case of emergency.      As I grew older, I began reading more complex books then The Box Car Children, making my way to up the rows of old wooden bookshelves lining the wall of my childhood home. One could find any type of literature one wanted to read in those shelves, from The Color of Magic, to Robinson Crusoe, to Russia Under the Old Regime, thanks to my large family with various tastes and the propensity to purchase books.     As far as my writing, my greatest moment so far was in my eighth grade English class when my fictional story of a girl in Pompeii reduced my teacher and several other students to tears. She read the story three times that week before we finally asked her to stop-she was ruining everyone’s make-up. Since then I decided I rather like writing, not that I enjoyed watching everyone cry(I’m not a psychopath,) but I did enjoy being able to make someone feel something, or have an experience that they otherwise wouldn’t have had. The pen is truly mightier then the sword.     I am afraid I do not have a plethora of worldly experiences to draw upon., I “lack material,” as it were. I’ve lived in the same Church-driven town all my life, with a Baptist church on one side of the street and a Methodist on the other. I have traveled a bit, though. I’ve England, Scotland, Whales and the majority of the continental US, so I’m not a complete ignoramus.
