Hi! It's SaltwaterExtended here!
Currently: Most likely writing.
Other things I'm on:
Fanfiction (like Sonic The Hedgehog?): SaltwaterJanuary
Deviantart (still learning): Silvernight25
Youtube: SomedayDreaming (all videos need a link- accessible mostly on Deviantart).
Here's a few things about my writing:
I am planning to become an author (I'm writing a few science fiction novels), because of this I will not post any of those stories here. I will post, however, some song lyrics and poems that I wrote. (I like to write songs a lot). I write songs on a lot of differing things...most have animal themes to them, because I like to compare human circumstances and attributes to different animals. Just because I find it interesting, I guess. Heheh.
A few things about my reviewing:
I like to help other future authors and poets by reviewing, and though I am a beginner to it, I try my best to improve the way I review. If I read something here, I will review it. (Because I'm pretty sure that when you post something, you do want to hear what others think of it. Of course, I never "flame" or anything. My goal is to give constructive criticism and also tell others what I do find interesting and unique about their writing.
If you want something reviewed, just ask!
I also like any feedback I get on my own short stories or songs, so if you can please let me know what you think.
I'm available for beta-reading, too. Check out my beta-reader profile if you're interested.
A few things about me:
I am a non-denominational Christian, and while I don't write many songs about it, it may sometimes play a part in my writing .(My faith influences everything I do, really). The story of how I became a Christian will be somewhere below if you'd like to read it.
I am learning to speak French, as well as Japanese. I've been studying them both for about a year, but I am still learning...so I'm not very good at them.
Je ne parle pas bien le francais.
(Non-kanji)- Watashi wa mada nihongo o benkyo shitay imas.
Or something like that.
I am learning to play guitar, and I also sing very (very) often. Music is a big part of my life, you could say...
I have many hobbies, too, aside from writing and singing...Like acting (and voice-acting), reading, drawing, cosplaying (I'm still working on that), anddd cats. Cats are a hobby.
The story of how I became a Christian (and how you can, too):
I'm not forcing you to read this, but this is something that I live for and truly believe...and so I want to share it.
When I was younger (years before I joined this site) I attended a VBS my friend invited me to. I always was taught the Bible from the start, but to be honest, it never really mattered to me. Until that one day at VBS.
I remember that they were teaching the"ABC's of Faith" and it stuck with me.
A- Admit to God you're a sinner, repent and turn from your sins. B- Believe that Jesus is God's son and that He came to save us from sin. C- Confess you're faith in Him, and choose to live for Him.
I always knew this "Good News" they spoke of, but it didn't hit me until then. I had never done anything "terribly bad" or so I thought. I'd never "really" sinned. Yet, I had. I had done things that were against God, such as lying, and though I thought it was nothing, it was sin. And sin separates us from God. I realized that I had never asked forgiveness for my sins, and I had never trusted in God.
So I prayed that I'd be forgiven, and I trusted and believed in Him.
I grew a lot in faith over the years, and honestly it was hard for me to really live for God. It still is sometimes, and I always will have struggles, but when I think of God's sacrifice for me- He gave His son, Jesus, to die on a cross, take on His wrath against sin, and then rise again to life to prove sin beaten- I realize how much He loves me, and it makes me want to live for Him.
God is both just and forgiving. He has to punish sin, but He provided a way out of it if we choose to take it. I couldn't earn it on my own, I had to humble myself and accept His mercy and grace. And He offers salvation to any who confess and turn to Him.
As a Christian, I am told to share this message, and to be unashamed of His Word. That is what I aim to do.
I know that lots of people believe many different things, and that a lot disbelieve the Bible because of science. But I think that the Bible and science do not truly conflict, and that the Bible also has many valid points to it, even through all the years.
If you want, I'm open to talking/debating about different beliefs, too. You can PM me if you want to do so.
I hope to see you around!
