My name is Lizzie. I write short stories and have attempted longer works (although I think I peaked at 10)

Age: somewhere between 0 and 100

I love to read too, some of my favorite authors right now are:
J.K. Rowling (Does anyone wonder what she's going to do after Harry Potter?)
Ann Rinaldi (My favorite story of hers is IN MY FATHER'S HOUSE)
J. D. Salinger (The Catcher in the Rye, enough said)
Sylvia Plath (THE BELL JAR was one of those books that's so strange, but so wonderful)
Libba Bray (If you haven't read A GREAT& TERRIBLE BEAUTY, read it!)
I love classics, including PRIDE & PREJUDICE, EMMA, and GONE WITH THE WIND

MY FAVORITE TV SHOWS:

Law and Order (the ones on TNT that are the reruns. my favorite detectives are Briscoe, Green, and Curtis. My favorite DA's are McCoy, Carmichael, and Ross)

ABOUT MY STORIES:

(WARNING: I suffer from bad cases of writer's block, so I don't update regularly, and any of my stories that are more than one chapter usually have no hope of being finished. Please don't let that discourage you in reading them though).

My newest short story Of Raindrops and Coffee Shops is very short, but I plan on expanding it once I get some constructive criticism. It will still only be one chapter though

Any unfinished stories I have will remain that way for quite sometime. I'm not sure how to continue them
