Author has written 5 stories for House of Night, Twilight, and Percy Jackson and the Olympians.
My name is Tarah. Some people call me Nyx though (because of my pen name, I guess), and that works too.
If you're here, you've either read one of my stories (yeah... sorry about those) or maybe a link to my profile is on a forum of some sort (which is less likely).
sigh* I suppose I could tell you a few random facts about me just to sate your curiosity. ;)
I'm quite young (as in, I'm lost in my teens).
I'm from Canada, eh?
I love to sing, and I’m learning to play piano. You can find me on YouTube (Tarah Sawler). On second thought... don't bother looking me up; that account needs a lot of fixing and deleting.
I have a slight obsession with aromatherapy… well, it’s more complicated than that.
I love grammar. I guess it makes me a half-good editor, but my English teacher is scared of me because of it. hehe...
All accents excite me. I'm still fascinated with the difference between Canadian and standard American accents.
I’m learning French, but I’m not quite bilingual... yet.
I honestly can’t use harsh words to describe someone or something. Sure I complain a lot, but I can't bring myself to outright say that something sucks.
I have a DEADLY fear of butterflies, moths and every insect that buzzes, but spiders don’t bother me, which is strange.
I hate almost every sport that involves a ball, a puck or endurance training. You know what, Don't even ask. :/
I may or may not have a large ego, but we won't go into that right now. ;)
I'm not fond of nature/camping and etc, but I have four plants in my room to look after. Scented, of course. Oops, make that one -- I've been informed that three of them are dead. R.I.P. my poor lavender plants. *sniff*
Yep, that’s me in a nutshell. Pleasant, right? ... did I mention I'm fluent in Sarcasm? hm.
I love to talk. I promice I don't bite (much), so feel free to click the little PM button... well, I'm not sure where it shows up for you, but I know it's there.
STORY STATUS UPDATES: (updated 12/1/13)
FORGOTTEN MEMORIES: I have a half chapter written for that. It may be posted... maybe... I'm not feeling particularly enspired. This story will be on hiatus, possibly perminantly.
(NEEDS TITLE): BTW the title means "I need a title, so I'm open to suggestions.: I have a half chapter written for this one. It will take a bit of a twist, and I'm not sure how many of my two readers will still want to read it... XD I'm being optimistic and hoping for both. I may post it if I get enspired... it all depends on many, many different things. Just consider this story to be on hiatus just like my other that has barely a chapter.
THE DESCENDANTS: In shorter terms than I wrote last time, the story is being re-edited and split into shorter chapters. 3.3 are done and re-posted, and the fourth should be along in a few months or so. Old readers should re-read and know that I have plenty to come that only needs editing. Updates should be more frequent, key word here being "should".
Two Halves: this is a new story I'm working on. I still have to work on the first chapter, but it should be out within the next year. Hehe... Anyway, this will be posted for Storm229 who submitted a character. It probably won't update often because I'll be busy this year and it isn't high on my list of priorities.
stories in the works!!:
Yet-To-Be-Titled: Series: Twilight - pairings: not yet certain; possibly Jessica/Felix, Oc/Demetri - Summary: CANON, after BD - When Jessica and her twin sister Cynthia are taken on a family vacation to Italy, they're thrust into the vampire world as the two newest gifted editions to Aro's guard. They find friendship and love, and they discover the man that lirks behind Aro's mask. Will the few enlightened members of the guard risk Aro's rath to save the accused innocent? I think we all know who that is. ;) This will be my first attempt at romance. I hope it won't prove too difficult. I'm honestly not sure if/when this will be posted. As you may know, I prefer to post as I write and I'm not in the writing mood these days... chapter 1 is in the works though, so keep an eye out in the next few months or so! Maybe I'll post chapter 1 as a Christmas present to all my good little readers. Or maybe not...
... that is all...
2/22/13: I've become a beta for ProjectTeamBeta (PTB)! I'm under the same pen name there.
8/13/13: I've just decided that I will be participating in NaNoWriMo (national novel writing month). Hopefully, the results will be my first completed novel! I remain cautiously optimistic. Those of you who know my regular updating schedule (psh... I don't have one) will scoff. Please be quiet. ;)
12/1/13: Two days ago, I won NaNoWriMo! I wrote 50,459 words during the first 29 days of November. This is the first novel I've finished. It will probably take a while to get it edited and ready for posting, but once I've got the majority of the chapters done I'll begin to post chapters on Fictionpress once a week.
Sorry for any spelling mistakes in here. Feel free to point them out to me. I love it when people do that! Surprisingly, that wasn't sarcasm. :)
Have a nice day,
