Author has written 12 stories for General, Life, Friendship, and Family.

Hello to anyone who might be reading this right now! Either you're here because you like my writing or you clicked by accident. To the former: thank you. To the latter: I'm actually not sure what to say to that.

Anyways, my name (as far as you're concerned) is Poetic Life, I can ride a unicycle and I've got an odd obsession with Anne Boleyn. The writer I look up to the most is Douglas Adams and my favourite group, if I absolutely had to pick one, is the Beatles, although I like the Arctic Monkeys, Jodi Proznick, Hannah Georgas, and a ton of other groups, artists, and songs too. Music and writing are my two favourite things in life.

I used to be a shy little clarinet player who always was hesitant and constantly apologised, but I ended up being a clumsy tenor saxophone player who is kind of weird, but in a likeable way. (Or so I picture myself. Others may view me very differently. I have friends, anyways.) I've recently started learning to play the drums, much to the shock of every single person I know, myself included. I have no social life outside of jazz band, in case you couldn't tell. I also have a talent for self-depreciation.

I think that's all you need to know about me for now.

The Dance by BettyBoop4w33t4 reviews
The shaking was subtle, in fact, on the outside she looked calm, cool, aloof, and maybe even annoyed. Inside, however, she was having a panic attack. She felt the adrenaline tumbling through her body, telling her to leave now lest ye be talked to. But Lacy would learn just how that Owen might just be worth a try.

Walls and Windows by Long Island Iced Tea reviews
Eyes can be walls to the soul, eyes can be windows to the soul. None of King Henry VIII's six wives shared the same eye colour. What did he see when he looked into each of their eyes? Tudor Era England.

extended babbling about the things that keep me from sleep
a poem about expectations, something that is decidedly not grieving, what others think, a dream, wondering if there is a purpose to everything that happens, and our inevitable ends.

things are going my way reviews
"After a year of being late for class and forgetting homework and thinking I was terrible at everything and falling off my unicycle in front of a bunch of grade tens, I've got things in order, and it feels great. Things are finally going my way. I may or may not have done a small twirl as I left Ms. S's classroom, grinning ridiculously." This isn't actually fiction.

i am a bit strange sometimes
i am a bit strange sometimes, especially when i'm tired, and i can babble for hours without saying a thing. it takes a talent, or i like to think it does. / me in a poem, basically. if you can't relate, i envy you.

Juliet Cade has a few rules about journal writing: no Dear Diary, no mundane entries unless she can make them interesting somehow, and no lies.

Terrington Investigations is the best detective agency around. It's too bad that their skills are going to waste in a small town with no cases, and that their boss is slightly unhinged.
