Author has written 1 story for Romance.
I'm Vicky and I love writing stories. So one day I hope to be a writer, and you never know, maybe it could happen... But for now I'll stick to writing overly long chapters that drag on a lot and then posting them on fictionpress :) Please read and review, even if it is a criticism/ flame or just one word. I'm happy for anything and I always return reviews (I will review your work back.) If you have a particular story you would like me to look at, pleas tell me. I love reading your stories! I really appreciate criticism, and it's always extremely helpful to me, so if you review my story, please don't be scared to tell me exactly what you think of it. I have edited work from over twenty professional writers, although I am still very young. The reviews I usually give are usually very detailed, as I love telling people exactly what I liked about their story and all the parts I enjoyed, but also possible changes they could make, although I try not to offend anyone and I always mention positive points. So please feel free to criticise my work as well! :)
A Little Birdie Told Me:
I had another story on here "A Little Birdie Told Me" and I finished it, and it was amazing how much support it got. I have some news: it got published! Yay! I still can't believe it. It is now available to buy on Amazon, Kindle and in Waterstones. Just Google 'A Little Birdie Told Me Victoria Best' and the Amazon page is the third result that comes up. Just a bit of shameless advertising, but it would mean the world to me if you could even just press the thumbs up next to the story to give it a 'Like' which could really make the story go up in popularity ratings, which is so vitally important. It's just a simple romantic comedy, but it has some more serious themes in as well, such as neglect and bereavement.
Random Facts About Me:
I am a girl. Hence why my parents decided to burden me with a name like 'Victoria.'
I am sixteen.
I live in England. Hence why I use posh words like 'hence' :D
I love who I am, and I like to think i'm really bubbly and optimistic and full of energy all the time. I am a huge fidget and I can't sit still for more than a few minutes.
I have light brown, wavy hair and light green/brown eyes. It's freaky because they change colour...
I am fluent in four languages - English, Bulgarian, Spanish and Sarcasm.
At age fifteen I was a part-time Open University student and published author.
I believe that life should be lived to the full, and I try to have fun in everything I do. As well as being a writer, I am also interested in teaching. I just think helping someone learn something or understand something is priceless.
My favourite authors range but for now my favourites are JK Rowling, Jean-Paul Sartre, Sylvia Plath, Ernest Hemmingway, Kazuo Ishiguro, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, John Milton, Phillip Larkin, Edmund de Waal, Jostein Garder, Frances Hogdson Burnett, Margaret Atwood, Louisa May Alcott and Jane Austen. I'm also a bit boring and like reading writing guides, for example How Novels Work by John Mullan.
Writing, reading, using posh words to make me sound clever, acting, laughing, shopping, parties, friends, that foamy stuff when you pour yourself a glass of coca cola, the colour pink, nice clothes, freshly mown grass, flowers, my family, my friends, my cat, my computer, telling really bad jokes, laughing at really bad jokes, singing loudly in the shower, when I say 'meow' to my cat and my cat says 'meow' back (yeah, we have such educated conversations,) reading about pointless stuff on Wikipedia, comfy shoes, my ipod, sunny days, warm radiators, and chocolate!
Maths, Meanies, maths, when I have bad hair, maths, when my cat doesn't say 'meow' back to me, maths, when the only pen I have runs out, maths, tests, maths-tests, being ill, maths, being bored, maths, studying, maths, people that push in queues, and most importantly MATHS.
The Mute and The Liar. A thriller/ mystery drama of sorts under the guise of a romance. The story centres around Alicia Lewis, a nearly-sixteen-year-old selective mute with a talent for supposedly "solving mysteries" who strongly believes she has the world solved and sorted. Her perfectly lonely life is shattered when out of nowhere, the ringleader of a youth gang breaks into her house and kidnaps her, forcing her into his vibrant, unpredictable world of impulsiveness, danger and destruction. The ultimatum for her freedom? For her father, a detective chief inspector, to murder a certain mysterious woman. It truly is the ultimate language barrier when the girl who lives a life of secrets meets the boy who lives a life of lies.
Expect: mysteries, twists, disturbing scenes, philosophical musings, a lack of dialogue but emphasis on movement and body language and a healthy dose of cacti.
Don't expect: fluffy romance scenes, steamy romance scenes, grating cliches, beautiful characters with perfect lives and happy endings galore.
Thank you for reading! :D
I am not asking anyone to read my story, but if you do decide to, I do not mind if you do not read all of it. Just skim-read, skip straight to later chapters and focus on reading the main parts of the narrative. Thank you for all the support. Keep writing and following your dreams! :D
