Author has written 6 stories for Maximum Ride, and Pokémon.

So this begins the third major profile overhaul I've done. When I very first joined this site in 2007, my username was rainbowriter. I took an accidental hiatus, and then changed it to BlueStripedPolo when I came back. It's under this name that I wrote "Spin You Around," "Here We Go Again," "Rainbow Summer," "I Thought You We Were Weird," "Fax Machine," and "Cheering Up, Charmander Style."

Now, I'm excited to get back to writing for a third time. I would like to think that my thinking has matured in the past three years since I've posted something, and I hope that it's reflected in my writing.

Also, I do not promise any quick or consistent updates. For one, we all know how creative tendencies can be- very unpredictable. And for two, I am a busy person. I got to school full-time and work part-time, and then (try) to have a teeny tiny little social life outside of that. But, with that being said, I will of course do my best to post regularly, because I do love writing and have missed it.

A quick note on the following quotes: I actually really, really love quotes, and have been collecting them for years. I have just pages of where I've written them, and post-it notes on the side of my bookshelf. But these ones in particular I feel like help define me as a person, and some of them have stuck with me for years and have helped shaped me into me.
