"Writing has laws of perspective, of light and shade just as painting does, or music. If you are born knowing them, fine. If not, learn them. Then rearrange the rules to suit yourself."
Hello all! You may remember me by the billion other names I went by, but now I'm simply known as Lost in Day Dreams (because I literally am all the time), or you could call me Cyndy if you would like. I've been a member of this site for six years now and have enjoyed every minute of it. As you can tell, I absolutely love to write and hope to make a career of it some day. As a result, I may take my writing on this site a bit too seriously, but what the heck! I'm having fun! Oh and also, just a friendly warning! I'm a bit of a romantic...okay, a hopeless romantic, so most of my stories are going to be full of lovey dovey stuff between my favorite couples. Just thought you should know and I hope you do not think me ridiculous because of it!

Singing, dancing, writing (duh!), hanging out with friends, you know, the normal junk!
Reba/Brock stories, Sweenett stories (Sweeney Todd) Victor/Victoria stories (Corpse Bride), Cosmo/Wanda stories, romantic stories, making new friends, finding people who share my interests, getting reviews, sharing ideas
Rude reviews, rude people, conceited people, judgemental people (constructive criticism is good, but there's a fine line between that and just being plain mean), prejudicism, racism, know-it-alls, pointless stories, poorly-written stories, people abandoning their stories (even though my updates may be far between sometimes, I will NEVER leave a story incomplete)
"It's not the critic who counts...It's not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled...Credit belongs to the man who really was in the arena, his face marred by dust, sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs to come up short and short again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming. It is the man who actually strives to do the deeds, who knows the great enthusiasm and great devotion, who spends himself on a worthy cause, who, at best, knows in the end the triumph of great achievement. And who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and cruel souls who know neither victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt
"Work as if you didn't need the money; love as if you've never been hurt; dance as if no one is watching." - Unknown
"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intellegent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
"A scrupulous writer, in every sentence that he writes, will ask himself at least four questions, thus: 1. What am I trying to say? 2. What words will express it? 3. What image or idiom will make it clearer? 4. Is this image fresh enough to have an effect?" - George Orwell
"Find a subject you care about and which you feel others should care about. It is this genuine caring, and not your games with language, which will be the most compelling and seductive element in your style." -Kurt Vonnegut
"If you wake up in the morning and all you can think about is writing, then you're a writer." - Unknown

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be beautiful, smart, or talented?' Actually, who are we not to be? It is our duty on this earth to give glory to God in all things that we do. And when we shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same." - Unknown
"Courage is not the abscense of fear. Rather, it is the judgement that something else is more important than fear." - Unknown

"Still glides the stream and shall forever glide; The Form remains, the function never dies; While we the brave, the mighty and the wise; We men, who in our mourn of youth defied; The elements must vanish -- be it so! Enough, if something from our hands have power; To live, to act, and serve the future hour; And if, as towards the silent tomb we go; Through love, through hope, and faith's transcendent dower; We feel we are greater than we know." - William Wordsworth
"Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought." - Percy Bysshe Shelley, To a Skylark
"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they go right.

"The recollected mind is awake
