Hi everyone! I'm Eliza Russell and I love to write. So far I have only published Twilight fanfictions, but I do have to hopes to write for more. I hope you guys like my stories!

Abigail Parks is my wonderful beta, so go check out her stories. If you liked Aurelia's Story* by me, read My Sister by her. Thank you Abigail!

I just want to let you guys know that I am not exactly sure where I want to go with Aurelia's Story so I have deleted that story to give it a little- okay a lot!- of TLC. I do have high hopes that it will eventually be put back up, but it will not be for a while. I am not stopping writing though, I currently have a Carlisle/Esme/O.C story I am working on and hope to make it up to publishing standards and a couple of one-shots I am working on as well. So, at the moment, Hold My Hand has it's first chapters out and I hope everyone likes it!

Thank you for reading!

And by the way, everything in life is writable about if

you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise.

The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt. ~Sylvia Plath

If there's a book you really want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it. ~Toni Morrison

Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. ~William Wordsworth

Metaphors have a way of holding the most truth in the least space. ~Orson Scott Card

I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions. ~James Michener

Words - so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne

Let me walk through the fields of paper
touching with my wand

"Fantasy's hardly an escape from reality. It's a way of understanding it." Lloyd Alexander

"A professional writer is an amateur who didn't quit." Richard Bach

"A poem is never a put-up job, so to speak. It begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a love sickness. It is never a thought to begin with." Robert Frost

"Poetry... is the opening and closing of a door, leaving those who look through to guess about what was seen during a moment." Carl Sandburg

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.
