Author has written 3 stories for Inkheart, Airman, and Danny Phantom.
Welcome to the profile of biliophile1.
Some guesstimated stats about me:
I have read about 1,500 different books on a wide variety of topics, which means a rate of about 116 books/year (not taking into account that I couldn't read my first few years).
I have gotten about 20 of those books taken up by teachers at different times. It should have happened about 100.
I have gotten yelled at by my parents over books at least 500 times. UPDATE: it has now reached at least 1,000. Maybe 2,000.
I have an immeasurable love of reading!
I typically go for the fanasy type of genre, but anything that tells a story in an engaging way is really good in my book (haha! unintentional pun!). In the more realistic fiction type of area, I enjoy books involving wilderness survival or Native Americans or anything like outdoorsy/camping type stuff, as well as books involving thinkers and innovaters who use their skills to face challenges (i.e., in Eoin Colfer's Airman, the main character has to use his obssesion with flying machines, which have not yet been invented, to escape from prison and overthrow the evil traitor that put him there). Heck, anything with a smart guy in it fascinates me, cuz I can totally relate! (Guy as in person, of course; I can obviously relate to females better than males... not to say I can relate to Opal Koboi in the Artemis Fowl series.)
I've been formulating stories since I knew what one was, but I never got serious about writing my own ideas, not just school assignments, until fifth grade, when my classroom reading privelege was revoked due to misuse and overuse. The story was the culmination of a series of ideas developed from an original continuing story I'd started to help me get to bed when I was too young to remember now how old I was. In sixth grade I used the freedom my LA teacher gave us in our daily journals to lengthen and revamp the story, and now two years later the story is still sitting on my computer, waiting to be finished, due to its continuing expansion in size. I have two novel-length books and three more coming (note: the third is in progress and the plan has expanded to a total of eight books), but I can't find anywhere to publish them. However, my fanfictions have found an outlet here, and there's so much more on Fictionpress. I'm glad to have this site to publish something on. Until then, I'm going to keep on practicing and learning, and letting my stories grow.
This started as something really short, sweet, and to the point, maybe a sentence or two. Now my profile text is several paragraphs long, and has grown like that while I typed it. But, hey, everything I write does this; it grows in the making, branching off into more and more complex themes and ideas that I can't put into whatever I'm writing. The LA journal series from before began as one book that might have an infinitive ending that allowed for billions of continued adventures and might reach something like ninety pages, if I phrase everything in a space-consuming way. Now it's a plan for five novel length-books with dozens of chracters and settings and themes and plot arcs and details I never included in my original idea. (Note: I've now expanded it to eight books.) It's grown into something, amazing, and I can't even believe I wrote it!
I hope whatever you write grows the same way.
Enough seriousness, time for silliness.
I saw this and decided to follow instructions, for once.

I call it thinking aloud, cuz otherwise people think I'm crazy. UPDATE: I found a one-word name for it: solilloquy. Bpy, was I using that wrong!
If at one time you misspelled or forgot how to spell a word less than four letters, copy and paste this onto your profile
it was fuel in the 4th grade class spelling bee; I thought it was feul because "fee-ool" sounded better than "fyoo-ehl" to me

I have a one-time gift. A beautiful gift that many people are ridiculed for in this day and age. A precious gift that many people throw away. It's called "virginity", and I plan to not waste it on someone who's just gonna dump me later. I choose to be faithful to my future husband, the man who will love me for the rest of my life, and to wait for the wedding day!! If you have chosen to save your one-time gift and are PROUD of your purity, paste this into your profile and add your name to the list: Dearheart, floppyearsthebunny, Narnian Nights, Gates of Valinor, Wintra, bibliophile1
Back to the realm of the boring and corny: I am now fifteen. I am a girl. I dislike an unfinished story and despise interferingly bad spelling and grammar, especially on a supposed final draft. I am big on the whole be nice to others thing, but I am a Simon Cowell reviewer if you violate too many spelling and grammar rules. I WILL review you as if you are a capable and mature writer, unless some aspect of your story indicates that you have probably had neither the experience nor the instruction to possibly avoid whatever mistake you have made. That said, I will still correct people. When I'm not writing, I am editing; it is what I do. Deal with it.
I now have a FictionPress account. My DP fanfic is being adopted by my friend, who has no account, to let me work on the things I have there.
