Author has written 1 story for Twilight.
I'm Holly, a graduate student at OU, which means I spend A LOT of time at my computer reading and writing. So fanfiction is a nice break from all that research. :)
Twilight is my guilty pleasure and Edward--well he's my muse. I almost feel sorry for the guys I date, because I end up comparing them to him. haha Lucky for them, I found one - dare I say - better than Edward. :) He understands my obsession. Okay, so maybe saying he understands is an exaggeration. He tolerates it, is more like it. But I love him even more, because of it.
I've only published one story because it's my favorite out of all the ones I have written thus far. Maybe I'll post them all one day. I also Beta--I love reading what others have come with and seeing how we can improve it. Two minds are so much better than one. Trust me. So if you are looking for a new betareader PM me! :)
I am a grammar freak. It irrates the poo outta me to see run on sentences, and incorrect word usage. Yeah, I said it. If you're going to write please know the difference between you're and your, it's, its' and its, and they're, their, and there. And use them appropriately. An error every once in awhile is A-OK, but every time you use them is not. Sometimes I can be a comma whore. I do try to use them appropriately, however. :)
I have commitments in my life that are very important to me. However, I know that sometimes, Saturday nights with the girls are much more needed than a Saturday night doing work. And if a friend is in need, I will do my best to be anything I can be for them.
I love my family and I want to spend time with them. What's more than that, I enjoy spending time with them. Family values are important to me. Even though we don't always agree, I will defend them to the death. That is something I can promise.
I have a hard time letting go and when I love, I love deeply. I'm sincere and genuine and I like people who are sincere and genuine. I also have this thing for boys who love their moms. I don't want to be told that I'm loved; I want to be shown.
Writing is my passion, even if I didn’t get a degree in it. Generally speaking, I think before I speak--especially in large groups. I’m usually quiet until I get to know you. But once I do, I am an open book. Don't be put off by my apparent shyness...because shy is the last thing to describe me accurately.
I wear my heart on my sleeve, but I am not naive. I know what it feels like to be completely broken and I am all too familiar with what it means to be hurt. I've been taken advantage of, used, and abused. My feelings have been blatantly disregarded. But I am better for it. And you'll often see that in my writing.
I'm indecisive...I’m no good at making decisions. Especially important ones. That's why I rely on GOD so much. And sometimes I read way too much into things. I'm the queen of tardiness. But I'm working on it. I feel more at home with a homemade picnic in the park than in a fancy restaurant.
I don't like laziness or liars. AND I get bored with people who insist on creating DRAMA. I'm trying to learn how to disagree without being disagreeable and I admire people who know how. I love laughing with my friends – especially in the most random moments. I love praying. I'd rather wear pink than blue and I would rather eat chicken than beef any day.
I love best friends and old friends and I love when new friends become old friends. I love running into an old friend and realizing that some things never change. I love midnight phone calls and late night talks. :) Inside jokes are amazing and remember when’s are mind blowing. Getting together with your best friends from high school and looking at old yearbooks -- a year and a half after graduation -- is one of the most amusing things in the world.
I want to believe there is a little bit of good in everyone, but sometimes I wonder. My trust in people has not diminished. And I hope it never does. I believe in love. Real, true, amazing, passionate, God-given love. I believe in myself. I believe in other people. I will never give up on the people I really care about, even if they break my heart a thousand times. I believe in God and I know He will never give up on me, even if I break His heart a thousand times.
I love the city, but I’ll always be a country girl at heart, but that doesn't mean I'm a hick. If you want to know what it means to be a SOONER, just ask. There so much more to southern girls than cowboy boots, hoe downs, and cow tipping. I LOVE gettin' all dolled up. But I love rockin’ the hoodie n jeans too.
I want to be a “soccer mom”. I want to be a Sunday school teacher, a higher education professional, and a coach, and one day I will be ALL of those things. But I want to be a wife, a mother, and a friend first. I want to help others, starting with my family. I want to love others, starting with myself.
I love new beginnings, but I know that endings have to come before new beginnings can happen. Some of the most beautiful things in my life have ended, but endings bring about strength and teach lessons that could never have been learned otherwise. And I can definitely appreciate that.
I’m not good with change. But when things don’t change we’re not growing and a person should never be constant. So, I’m learning to embrace change. I’ll be better for it in the end. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and that more often than not, we won't understand that reason.
It seems no matter how much I care, some people are always going to be jerks. I’ve learned that everyone deserves a second chance. Sometimes I say things that I end up regretting later. But, sometimes I don't say things I wish I had. And I thank God that I’m NOT perfect. PERFECTION is BORING.
I'm very gullible. Please don't abuse that fact. Music gives me inspiration to do anything and very rarely am I found without ipod in hand. There is something about jamming out in the car that I L O V E. OR maybe it’s just my car I love…NOPE It’s BOTH.
I'm a major shopaholic. I can't help it. It's a disease. Antique shopping, bargain hunting and outlet stores are the best. If I'm shopping and something silly catches my eye and makes me think of you, chances are you'll be receiving it shortly thereafter. Silly gifts make life enjoyable. :)
I live for the random things that come out of kid’s mouths. Keeps you on your toes! Roller coasters are fun. So are carnivals and bungee jumping. Texting is looove. Old couples are my favorite. I want to find a love as true as that someday. When I'm ninety I want to know I lived a good life and that it was all worth in the end.
I love smiling for no reason at all; it makes people wonder what I’m up to. Hearing my favorite song on the radio is awesome, but waking up to it is even better. There’s nothing better than the smell of clothes fresh out of the dryer or the sight of a rainbow after it rains.
I love miracles. Can't find one? LOOK AROUND. They're everywhere; they surround our lives. Being warm is so much better than being cold, but I do love winter best. I live for hot showers; I find hot chocolate irresistible; and I adore hot tubs, especially when it’s cold outside.
Weddings will always make me cry and good conversation will always make me smile. Vacations are the best. But road trips are even better. There is just something about walking down the boulevard with the people I love and admiring the lights that I wouldn’t want to miss.
Retreats bring people together and take them out of their comfort zone and I like that. It gives rise to strength, understanding, and the ability to grow together, as a group, and alone, as an individual at the same time. And that’s one opportunity I would never pass up.
I love meeting new people. Which is why I'm pursing a career in Higher Education. But that's not the only reason. I love the thought that I can change someone’s life for the better. If I could do one thing before I die, it would be that.
I'm done rambling, now. So check out my story and let me know what you think. All comments are welcome, criticism and praise. Like I said you can never improve a story on your own. You need someone else to read it and tell you why it stinks. Or that you have just written the next Pulitzer Prize award winner. So let me have it. : ) And don't hesitate to ask if you need a Beta! Adios my new friends! : )
