Author has written 11 stories for Humor, School, Life, and Romance.
NOTE ON APPLES: I have revised this and edited it over and over again and wanted to start fresh so I've taken it down and am putting it back up gradually. I've gotten 22 chapters completely written so I can assure you that updates are going to come together on a regular basis.
There is also a website for it regarding any updates.
Penname.Teenager. Stomach makes weird noises that can't be controlled. Wishes for easy times but then erases those wishes at 11:11 because the hardest things to get are the best kind. Loves that millisecond you're in the air and feeling like you're flying when you jump off the swing like a little kid. Grew upwatching planes and loving the feeling of pastels gliding on paper. Still cloud-watches. Hopeful cynic. Counts stars. Innocent and a little insecure. Likes to think of "the line" as being more dotted than fine. Believes it all happens for a reason (and begs for that reason to be worth it). Believes in words too much. Believes in everything too much. Trusts feelings, not thoughts.
I'm scared of being right and I'm scared of losing it. You know, that thing that you have that makes you hold on to everything--your writing, your family, your friends.
I think they call it hope.
But it's not up to me.
The hottest love has the coldest end.
Apples— "Remember how Shakespeare said 'all the world's a stage and the men and women are merely players?'" Cade asked the silent room. "What if...what if Doling was...a fruit basket? And all of us were just apples?"
When Zach, Andrew and Cade come back to Doling Boarding School, they don't see anything different in their lives. They have each other and a carpe diem attitude, intending on spending their 7th year creating as much havoc as possible. But the war looms overhead and when a new student Mae Kido (who just happens to be Japanese) comes to Doling and rooms with Cade's childhood friend Camille, their world is turned upside down. Cade and Mae grow into a love/hate relationship; Andrew, Zach and Camille all slowly feel the effects of the war seeping into their safe world and the five of them are about to learn--so reluctantly--that we all have to grow up sometime. Peppered with schoolboy humor, inappropriate antics and a realistic level of romance that won't make you gag on the fluff of it all. Call it a coming of age tale, call it ridiculous, call it outrageous, but call it like it is: teenage years.
Graduation Day: a poem I wrote about graduation. Nothing much, just a little something. I typed it up exactly the way I wrote it down that night, so even if there are improvements that I see I could have made, I'm not going to correct it because it takes away from the authenticity of the poem and how I felt that night. I normally edit my poems but this one I didnt feel right about editing, so i just left it.
Here I'll Stand: a poem I wrote for a contest; just a little something, a bit existential now that I look back on it, but whatever, you can be the judge.
The Takes: Snapshots of whatever the hell pops into my day to day activities. Life's a movie. Take one. Or two. Or three. Or five. Or ten. Action.
Character Play Bys:
Some people have PMed me about setting play-bys for a few of my stories. 'Apples' has been popular regarding that, actually, so I guess if I was to cast someone in the roles, they'd look something like this.
