I have some poems posted on FictionPress, if anyone is interested. I am planning on furthering my account there, but it may take some time...he he...I'm bad about timing...Check it out!
My Fiction Press Stories are all complete. They're are several poems and a few short stories, an essay or two. It's all original and it's mine. If you'd like to check into that'd be great. Leave me a note and let me know what you thought. Here's the link to my profile on fictionpress:
A MESSAGE TO READERS:
What you call being 'too lazy to review' is what we call 'a flame to the pages' as the writers. That one minute or two that you felt 'too lazy' to review is another minute of creeping discouragement that all writers feel as they begin to think...
"Why am I even here…?"
"What's even the point of continuing?"
"My skills must be terrible…"
"No one cares for my story…"
"I'll never be a good writer..."
These are only a few thoughts that go through every writer's head- that go through MY head- when we put out a chapter/story with all our heart and soul within, and we sit there…and sit…and wait…and not a single person says even a word.
If you're not a writer, you have NO IDEA how much that hurts…
If you ARE a writer, then I'm sure you know just how great it feels when someone is kind enough to leave a heartwarming and encouraging review, and you read it, smiling while thinking…'Wow…I did it…'
So, why not give fellow writers the same luxury here?
Too many times I've seen epic and utterly beautiful works of literary art fall to pieces before finally being abandoned due to the terrible discouragement that the lack of reviews can cause.
Sometimes, it is so severe that the very writer himself decides to quit, denying the world his skills of writing that I'm quite sure others would have deeply enjoyed.
Just one minute, that's all it takes. Just a few gentle taps of the fingers on your keyboard, a few seconds or so of your time, and your words can SAVE a writer from a dark demise.
Do me a favor: Go find a story, ANY story, anywhere here on Fictionpress, and see if you can help it. If it has very little/no reviews at all, just check it out, and say whatever comes to mind.
And enjoy the thought in mind that you could have just SAVED that story, with just a few taps of the keyboard.
ODDS AND ENDS ABOUT ME:

My Family: (In a Nutshell- should be a Nuthouse!) I love my family to death! They are just...just awesomeness. =-D
I am the oldest of five children( 3 boys and 2 girls) and two miscarriages( 1 boy and 1 girl).
My parents have only ever been married to each other and they're still together.
I have three aunts and six uncles.
I have three living pairs of grandparents and two great gpas and one great gma.
I have...tons (not going to even try to count) of cousins.
I'm odd, unusual, and out of the ordinary.
I definitely can't SPELL!
I LOVE to write.
I LOVE to read. (top 4 authors are Margaret Peterson Haddix, Gail Carson Levine, Shannon Hale, & Terri Blackstock!!!!!)
When I'm home, I have to go to my grandparents house to use the internet. (I usually just walk... It's only 2 miles!)
I'm a TOTAL Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys bug! ALL THE WAY!!!!! Like books, games, tv shows, EVERYTHING!
I'm VERRRRRRRRY precise about what I say and how I say it- more so in the terms of writing, but I sorta do it in my speech as well. I can literally spend an hour trying to work on one sentence. Ha, and when you get me and Sassyk100 together...yesh, we spend HOURS working together on the smallest of details!!! I love you Sassy!!!!!!!!!!!!
I like to learn new words and I'm always looking for a new way to expand my vocabulary.
I love learning new languages.
I'm one of those CHRISTIANS that aren't afraid to admit it or show the world who made me.
I have only one set of shelves in my room to hold all my books (I have so many some're currently living on the floor!) This doesn't include my ND and HB shelves, which are too small to be shelves anyway...and, yes, ND and the HB get their own shelves...I know, I'm a dork.
I love to cook. My Fruit Pizza is my trademark. It's basically a desert in the shape of a pizza. Um, also there's my grandma's Cheesy Vegitetable soup that's really good. Mashed taters are a specialty when made by my Grandpa, and Nana's known in multiple states for her fudge! I love learning new recipes, so if you'd like to swap some, let me know!
My 3 closest friends have never met each other and they each live at least 6 hours apart from each other.
I've never had a boyfriend -ever. (...doesn't mean that I can't dream :-D )
I Fantisize a LOT!
I'm constantly bugged my story plots running through my mind. Oh, but my dad just got me a cool green journal that I now write them down in!!
Four dollars is gold to me. (I can get a new ND and HB original Super Mystery from Amazon!!!)
My favorite color is GREEN!! Blue runs in close second, but it depends on the shade. Oh, I love colors! It's so hard to choose favorites...except for greeeeeeeeennnnnnnnn! I love mixing colors, like Indigo and Blue Violet! That's a pretty color! I love to color in coloring books full of princesses and fairies and Barbies. (Yes, I am an adult and I still color little girl coloring books. Get over it. ;-))
I like to watch the good shows that they used to play on T.V. I feel for the kids who grow up with...Ant Farm? Seriously dude? What happened to Even Stevens and Kim Possible, Red Skelton and The Dick Van Dyke Show and stuff like that???
I saw this on a few other people's profiles and thought that it was helpful, so Ima try it...

Okay so here's a really neat e-mail that my cousin sent me. I just wanted to share it because I thought it was funny and cute, so here it is:
FAKE FRIENDS vs. REAL FRIENDS
FAKE FRIENDS: Never ask for food.
FAKE FRIENDS: Call your parents Mr / Mrs
FAKE FRIENDS: Never seen you cry
FAKE FRIENDS: Borrow your stuff for a few days then give it back
FAKE FRIENDS: Know a few things about you
FAKE FRIENDS: Will leave you behind if that is what the
FAKE FRIENDS: Would knock on your front door
FAKE FRIENDS: Are for awhile
FAKE FRIENDS: Will talk bad to the person who talks bad about you.
FAKE FRIENDS: Would ignore this
If you were killed today, I'm sorry I wouldn't be able to come to your
First, I wanted to let you know th at I love you to death & think you
Second, if I don't get this back I understand ...
I have a game for you. Once you read this letter, you must send it to
If you receive at least 4 (changed this too. lol) back then you are
Not that I believe anything bad will happen to me if I don't, but hey why not? Honestly, I don't interpret that verse as meaning "if you don't post this, you're going to the pits!" I really think God could care less what happens in our little internet lives, whether we post this or not. Don't get me wrong, that doesn't mean to trash Him or His ways and then turn around and claim that you're an honest Christian. You've got to live in Christ, but that doens't mean you have to re-post every "I believe!!!" that you come across
Did you know that 98% of teenagers will not stand up for God, and 93% of the people that read this won’t repost it?
Jesus had no servants, yet they called him Master...
He had no degree, yet they called him Teacher...
He had no medicine, yet they called him Healer...
He had no army, yet kings feared him...
He won no military battles, yet he conquered the world...
He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him...
He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today
Feel honored to serve such a leader who loves us...
If you believe in the God, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost

YOUR GIRL SIDE:
You wear lip gloss/chap stick - I am hopelessly addicted to chapstick!
Hilarious: (Not that I would actually do it, but...)
Ways to annoy others on an elevator:
1) Crack open your briefcase or handbag, peer Inside and ask "Got enough air in there?"
2) Stand silent and motionless in the corner facing the wall without getting off.
3) When arriving at your floor, grunt and strain to yank the doors open, then act as if you're embarrassed when they open themselves.
4) Greet everyone with a warm handshake and ask him or her to call you Admiral.
5) Meow occasionally.
6) Stare at another passenger for a while. Then announce in horror: "You're one of THEM" - and back away slowly
7) Say -DING at each floor.
8) Say "I wonder what all these do?" And push all the red buttons.
9) Make explosion noises when anyone presses a button.

12) Try to make personal calls on the emergency phone.
13) Draw a little square on the floor with chalk and announce to the other passengers: "This is my personal space."
14) When there's only one other person in the elevator, tap them on the shoulder, then pretend it wasn't you.
15) Push the buttons and pretend they give you a shock. Smile, and go back for more.
16) Ask if you can push the button for other people but push the wrong ones.
17) Hold the doors open and say you're waiting for your friend. After a while, let the doors close and say "Hi Greg, How's your day been?"
