What do a baker and a bookworm have in common? Not much, unless they're the same person. (Oh, and they both start with "b")
I am a recent graduate of culinary school, preparing for a career as a baker. I love making bread, cookies, and tartlets (just don't ask me to do cakes, 'kay?). I've been a bookworm a lot longer, and I'm almost a compulsive reader. I read cereal boxes and other food packaging, books, newspapers, books, signs on the side of the road, anything that's printed and not moving. (Did I mention books?) And sometimes I even try to read stuff that is moving, like those light-up signs they have some places. :) I also play the cello, and have been doing that for about eight years now. I've been playing an instrument since kindergarten, however. Baking is what I love, and playing the cello and writing are what I do to unwind.
I've actually started writing a lot more in the past few years. "Lady in a Tower" is the first story I've actually managed to complete--I can't tell you how many I've started and gotten bogged down in the middle of somewhere, usually in the middle of sending my character off on some epic quest to save the world/their homeland/etc. Most of my writing, though, has either been poetry or has been or for a text-based Harry Potter roleplaying site called Rocky Mountain International (insert shameless plug here: It is a lot of fun, and as a side benefit, it has helped my description and my characterization skills. It's a great community, and it's totally my way of attending a school like Hogwarts.. I recommend that you check it out, but I'm not insisting that you join it. Just check it out, and decide for yourself. Please?) I joined FictionPress after I wrote "Lady" and was like, "Great, I have a random story sitting on my computer; what am I going to do with it?" The answer: put it up on FP.
I'm currently working on revising Stormbreaker, which is a full-length novel, unlike "Lady." Any feedback would be greatly appreciated as I plug plot holes and tie in loose threads. I am probably not going to update Stormbreaker with revisions until I have the vast majority of them done, however (especially as an enormous series of changes just dropped into my lap).
I have several more ideas for stories in the pipeline, but no idea which one will start sprouting first. In the meantime, please enjoy some poetry (Ramblings)! Please note that all of the poems were written between when I was in eighth grade and senior year of high school, and many were written late at night. Read at your own risk. :)
