OLD BIO! Must be rewritten, much as I despise writing these things...

My name is Taylor, and I'm eighteen years old, working full time,hunting for scholarships, preparing to enter college next year.

And, obviously, I write. I wouldn't be on this site if I didn't at least have an interest in it. Primarily, I'm in the lyric department, though I've been trying to branch out a little bit; occasionally you'll come across a plain old poem or maybe even a short story I've authored. Even though I've been writing a fair amount lately, I've gotten lazy about publishing anything... Maybe if people whine enough I'll get back to it.

My favorite authors:

~DarkJaina (Good friend, great poet. Doesn't write all that much these days, but when she does, it is definitely worth the read. This girl has some amazing depth and metaphors.)

~Fire Goddess at Sea (Who doesn't like her? Beautiful imagery in these poems.

~Heart of the Sword (Amazing, that's the only way to describe this author.)

~Julia-Tears (Another poet with beautiful imagery and this truly astounding talent for metaphors. I am in awe.)

~L. Emmist (Still hasn't published anything on Fictionpress. But he needs to. Go read his Animorphs fanfiction on http://www.fanfiction.net, under the same author name. BRILLIANTLY SCARY. Also a good friend of mine, as well, and brilliantly scary in general...)

~Oedipal Kat (Another of my favorites from fanfiction.net. I'm wondering if, in the transition period ages ago where fictionpress split off from the site, they carried over all the favorite authors and whatnot... Go read her stuff!)

~Smartie1685 (Brilliance. Can't say much more than that.)

~True Illusion (Of all my favorite authors, this one pretty much surpasses them all. You're looking at a kid who will one day be winning Pulitzers, here.)

~WeirdBlondy (Another fanfiction author, but she's got one poem up here, definitely worth the read. Awwww!!)

Remember! For anyone who R&Rs, I will try to return the favor and review as many of your works as you did mine. (Operative word being try, but I really will try hard!! I promise!!)

Landscape reviews
Wow, haven't written in a while... Or at least haven't published anything. An artistic description of a winter landscape would, I guess, be the best description.

Less odd than the other song, but still rather strange. Kind of annoyed with the repetition of life, and my own stupidity would I guess be the best way to explain this. Please R&R!

The Night Tried to Hide in a Diamond reviews
Reading too many Bright Eyes lyrics, I think, hence the long title. Alternate title is "Flawless Ashes". Kind of fierce, angry. Some screamed lyrics, probably, though I can't make my voice do that... Please R&R!

It Won't Be Long reviews
Hard to describe... This one has a number of layers to it, which the reader may or may not understand. I put in a couple of oddly-placed words for effect, as well as some metaphoric cliches. It's all about placement... R&R!

This one was difficult to write, for some reason. PG for thematic elements, though G probably would have been okay; the subject matter deals with loneliness and hints at mental illness, though it isn't verified. Please R&R! I'm eager for your advice.

After a long hiatus of writing but not publishing, I offer this to the flames or praise of your reviews! I chose 'general' as the genre, but the best way to describe it is surrealism. Frequently I dislike my work, but this I liked well enough to publish,

Well, I've seriously debated publishing this one. It is dedicated to all the girls I know who struggle with eating disorders, and is something of a glimpse into that mindset. Very short, and I think worth the read. Please R&R!

Overall, I'm really pleased with this song. It's got a strong, upbeat melody that really adds to it. This one does tend to be a little more punk-y than I usually write, but is good. -Note- Originally written 7/28/03, publishing delayed due to my computerl
