Author has written 3 stories for Nature, and Spiritual.
I'm not a very consistent writer. I have recently found myself playing mind games with myself... I write too many stories in which at least one of the main characters are down on themselves. A girl's perspective is the easiest for me. I think you can guess why.
I have a tough time writing- excuse me, I mean finishing stories. Usually I write stories that are just way too long because I love creating intricate and complex plots. It's a really bad habit... and it doesn't help that I write with only an idea and a half-baked ending in mind. How the characters will reach the end, I never know. Not until we get there.
One of the many weird quirks that I have is that I often don't feel like I have to create characters at all. When I begin my story, or when introducing a new character, I feel like I only have to go to Creative Characters, Inc., and tell the receptionist the ideal character for my story. I go to the studio and test my character to make sure he/she fits my story. When I decide I like the character, I just give them a situation and record how they reacted to it. If I realize later that their performance doesn't work for my story, I simply come back to Creative Characters, Inc., and hire a new character. Usually, though, my first choice works out well.
As I said in the author's note in "Living," I am not a huge fan of poetry. So why do I have more poems on here than stories? I don't understand myself when it comes to that. It's probably because I'm very hesitant when it comes to posting what I have written. I have very low self esteem on the outside, and I often feel like no one will enjoy what I've written. That's why I feel so happy when I get a good review from others!
I do have a Fanfiction account, but I don't know if it's worth looking at because I haven't posted anything on there. Then again, you could check all the stories that I've favorited...
If you want to take a look, my pen name is Sapphire Faith. (Or just click the link. I think it's easier that way.)
By the way, I am a Christian. I do my best not to be judgmental, though. If you check the kinds of stories I've favorited, I'm not exactly reading stories that my pastor would read. But don't judge me! I am a very strong Christian (I believe so, anyway); I just happen to like a lot of... non-Christian stories, too. (If you read "Living," you can see a glimpse of my faith... even though I've never needed it in the way the characters did.)
Here are some quotes I hope to be known by (even though no one will remember me):
I have a habit of doing this drumming thing the tour guide taught a bunch of the girls when we went on our 8th grade DC trip. It annoys other people to no end... but I can't help it. I also like playing out the beat for the song "Cups" with only my hands. (A cup would be better, but I can play the beat with nearly anything!)
So, yeah... I might write some more rambling on here... I'm praying that you don't think I'm some sort of weirdo. Believe it or not, but many of my classmates insist that I'm the smartest in the class. When I get 100% on an Algebra test, they always say, "That's 'cuz you're [Sapphire Faith]." (Sorry, I'm not comfortable putting my name up here... though I probably have already.) I beg to differ, however.
Keep believing (in whatever you believe in)!
