Explanation of my nom de plume:
I am an Asian-American teen whose life revolves around reading and writing. And anime/manga. (If you're interested, check out my FanFiction: SailorVegeta13.) Beyond reading and writing, I like drawing (I'll do my own profile pic and book covers when I have time) and music (I play the piano). My first language is English, but I'm reasonably fluent in Mandarin Chinese and am taking Spanish in school. Plus, I'm teaching myself Japanese. I've been told I make very few spelling/grammar/usage/etc. mistakes in my writing; I think, though, that writing is an art ,and whether or not something's a mistake depends on your point of view. So, academically, my writing may not be perfect, but I like to think that it's intelligible and not annoyingly un-proofread.
My life is boringly normal. Disappointingly, nothing really interesting/story-worthy has happened to me yet: no interesting/dangerous new magic powers have revealed themselves; no secret world has been unveiled; no too-good/bad-to-be-true events have taken place in my life. (Then again, there's always hope: Clary Fray [from the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare] was sixteen before she discovered the Shadowhunters and their world!) So I'll make do with the imaginary worlds of my story characters until my own adventure finds me.
Just a heads-up: my characters, as I'm sure most serious writers can appreciate, are real people to me. In fact, they're more real than some of the people I see in school everyday. So while it's okay to comment on characters' personalities, actions, etc., I really don't appreciate hateful criticizing of my characters. "I just don't like him/her" is acceptable; "I hate him/her" is not. But since we're all writers/readers here, this is more of a formality than a real warning.
Though I mostly write for my own enjoyment, I really appreciate reviews. You wouldn't believe how annoying it is when the only feedback you ever get is, "Whoa! You're such a good writer!" Most of my classmates wouldn't know good writing if they downloaded it off the internet to turn in as the essay they didn't write. (And yes, that frequently happens with them.)
Yeah, plagiarism is a major problem in my school, especially among the Caucasian kids; but a very few of my Asian classmates use SparkNotes too. (Not trying to be racist or anything, just realistic.) I don't cheat, just in case you were wondering. While I care about my grades, I think it's not worth getting an A if I didn't earn it myself; plus, I like having something to show for my effort. Why would I plagiarize a story when I can enjoy writing my own?
Check out my IRL friends' writing! (That is, if they ever publish any...)
I, DreamingVixen13, do solemnly swear to review all the stories I read, regardless of the number of reviews, its age, or anything else. Copy and paste this into your profile to encourage people to review without being hypocritical: because everyone knows how much it sucks when you have 500 hits and 3 reviews . . .
