About Me

I'm a simple teenage girl from podunk Arkansas trying to get by in the world of high school. I started writing as soon as I could, and I've never quit. Over the years, what writing means to me has changed.

In the beginning, when I was young, it was just a fun way to pass the time. I go back and read those stories, and I think... Lord, where have those years gone? Then, as I got a little older and my family structure changed, I used it to block out my mother and sister yelling- kind of an escape. Years passed, my sister moved, and writing changed for me once again when I took up poetry for the first time. It became a kind of therapy for me when I felt like no one wanted to listen. Now, here we are, and I'm finally sixteen (though it feels no different from fifteen, or fourteen, or well, any of those other teen years really), and writing has changed yet again into a friend almost. It's something I can look forward to when the world has me down, or something to show the world what I'm feeling when I'm too happy to explain.

I think this year is the first year that I've started writing something meaningful to the world. That's right, my writing may all be "teen drama" for some of you, but it's life. It's teen pregnancies, family issues, abuse, drugs, and all that unhappiness rolled up tight into sad beginnings, hopeful middles, and a happy (sometimes bittersweet) ending.

Sorry, my internet is running incredibly slow today. I've been trying to load this site for so long, and it just started working again! Anyway, I really like that picture that you made for the new cover. Very cool-looking!

Oh, that's completely fine. What I meant by whiny teen poets was a choice few that I'd encountered over time... Ones who would create online dating relationships, "cheat" (also online), write desperate poetry about how much they hate the other girl and are insanely in love with the boy that they cheated on, and then delete their profile after turning many people against each other. It sickens me.
Your situation is completely acceptable (in terms of me appreciating your work and respecting you as a writer), as I can admit that I become extremely emotional over things, as well. I think that we'll get along.

Wow! I don’t think anyone has ever sent me such a honest, detailed and helpful review before. I appreciate this may be your standard length but reviewing people’s work in this way is amazing and more people, including myself, should adopt your approach.
I have to say I totally agree with your comments on ‘things I should work on’. I’m not sure why I sent you chapter 3 before the others (an error on my part) as I know this is by far my weakest one. You are right that I use ‘I’ far too much and you are not the only one who noticed. I think this was because this chapter was quite personal to me but I will definitely look to re write it. I’m actually really gutted that you didn’t get to read the other chapters first as they were building up to this scene and I fear back tracking will loose the suspense I was hoping to create.

This is my first attempt of writing, so trust me when I say that all advice and criticism given is gratefully received. Your comments on things I really like have boosted my confidence no end, so again I’d like to thank you for you for that.

I know exactly where I’m going with this book and I hope I will continue to keep people interested along the way. I can appreciate that I leave a lot of questions unanswered but I can promise that they all will be, all the reader needs to do is keep reading.

Thanks once again for your time and effort in responding; you’re an asset to this site.
