I PROMISE I HAVEN'T FALLEN OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH! It's senior year, crunch-time, and college applications have been keeping me busy, but I just got an awesome scholarship, so no more applications! I'm also proofing editor for the school literary magazine, and there are only two of us to proof/re-edit 16 or so stories...
Thanks for everybody that has been reading my stories, despite the lack of updates. Once I get the lit. mag done I'll probably have more free time to do fanfics.
Other News: The next "assignment" in creative writing is going to be working on getting some work published! I already have a lovely series of stories that I have lined up, so I'm ecstatic!
I'm going to major in English, with a concentration in Creative Writing. :D
I respond to ALL reviews! or faves or alerts. :D
I, Tail writer, do solemnly swear to review all the fics I enjoy, regardless of the number of reviews, its age, or anything else.
I am a Southern high school senior who loves to read, write and draw. I am in my 2nd year of taking creative writing in school, and WILL MAJOR in it in college. I have a possible book in the works, but it's still in the infancy stages as of yet. (It's kind of hard to explain, but if you want details, you can PM me)
I love reviewing people's work, it's a bit like workshopping, and joined so I could finally review those few awesome stories that don't accept anonymous reviews... :P
BOOKS: Twilight saga, Harry Potter, anything by Diana Wynne Jones, Robin Mckinley and Shannon Hale. There are a bunch of others, I can't possibly list them all! (I read a library out of books when in 5th grade.) I'm a book addict, and proud of it!
If anyone out there has any advice for getting un-blocked in a story, let me know. (My book idea came in a dream, and so I have the conflict and some beginning, but can't seem to develop the characters or the rest of the story. I have written about 2 chapters so far.)
I am random, crazy and a grammar fiend. I can spell just about anything, and can give you a song to go with whatever you say!
I strongly recommend the stories in my Favorites; they are some of the best I've found! and I'm always adding more!
Also check out the C2 I'm staff of: Best of the Best:1000+ Reviews. A bunch of my faves are included in the list, and I highly recommend all of them! Feel free to subscribe, since more will always be added as long as people keep reviewing! Also, if you know of a few (or more!) that aren't on the list, let me know and I will certainly add them!
Ok, so I'm not usually one for cut-and-pastes, but I found this in my deleted messages in my email and thought, in the interest of good similes everywhere, would post it: Feel free to ignore my tacky comments-
Many English teachers from across the country can submit their collections of actual similes and metaphors found in high school essays. These excerpts are published each year to the amusement of teachers across the country. Here are last year's winners:(sent to me in 2008)
1. Her face was a perfect oval, like a circle that had its two sides gently compressed by a thigh Master.
2. His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like underpants in a dryer without Cling Free.
3. He spoke with the wisdom that can only come from experience, like a guy who went blind because he looked at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it and now goes around the country speaking at high schools about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it.
4. She grew on him like she was a colony of E.Coli, and he was room-temperature Canadian beef.
5. She had a deep, throaty, genuine laugh, like that sound a dog makes just before it throws up.
6. Her vocabulary was as bad as, like, whatever.
7. He was as tall as a six-foot, three-inch tree.
8. The revelation that his marriage of 30 years had disintegrated because of his wife's infidelity came as a rude shock, like a surcharge at a formerly surcharge-free ATM machine.
9. The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn't.
10. McBride fell 12 stories, hitting the pavement like a Hefty bag filled with vegetable soup.
11. From the attic came an unearthly howl. The whole scene had an eerie, surreal quality, like when you're on vacation in another city and Jeopardy comes on at 7:00 p.m. instead of 7:30.
12. Her hair glistened in the rain like a nose hair after a sneeze.
13. The hailstones leaped from the pavement, just like maggots when you fry them in hot grease.
14. Long separated by cruel fate, the star-crossed lovers raced across the grassy field toward each other like two freight trains, one having left Cleveland at 6:36 p.m. traveling at 55 mph, the other from Topeka at 4:19 p.m. at a speed of 35 mph.
15. They lived in a typical suburban neighborhood with picket fences that resembled Nancy Kerrigan's teeth.
16. John and Mary had never met. They were like two hummingbirds who had also never met.
17. He fell for her like his heart was a mob informant, and she was the East River.
18. Even in his last years, Granddad had a mind like a steel trap, only one that had been left out so long, it had rusted shut.
19. Shots rang out, as shots are known to do.
20. The plan was simple, like my brother-in-law Phil. But unlike Phil, this plan just might work.
21. The young fighter had a hungry look, the kind you get from not eating for a while.
22. He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck, either, but a real duck that was actually lame, maybe from stepping on a land mine or something. (This one was one of my favorites, as well as #19.)
23. The ballerina rose gracefully en Pointe and extended one slender leg behind her, like a dog at a fire hydrant.
24. It was an American tradition, like fathers chasing kids around with power tools. (Don't you just LOVE this one? hehee.)
25. He was deeply in love. When she spoke, he thought he heard bells, as if she were a garbage truck backing up. (Ahh, true love!)
AAND since you've made it this far I want to give you this last copy/paste I got off of someone's bio. It fits Bella and I perfectly:
If you believe that anyone that hits you with a ball in dodgeball should be stripped of all of their dignity, copy and paste this onto your profile.
And one inspired by Bella Danger Magnet Alert/ myself in my pe class:
If you have ever avoided getting hit by a ball, only to have 3 hit you on the head when you were not paying attention, copy and paste this...
