ME in a word: oddball

ME AND WRITING: A LOVE STORY

Do you remember That Girl in high school, the one that seems to have life completely figured out? She was the top of class and always sat in the front row, but dispelling the idea that smart girls can't be popular, she was adored by students and faculty alike.

That Girl was so NOT me. I was the girl in the back row with her hair in her face, furiously scribbling lyrics, poems, & stories in a black notebook, her trusty constant companion. I've always loved to write, but as a teenager, it became my obsession.

I spent my adolescence blending into the background, utterly unnoticed. Don't feel sorry for me...invisibility has its advantages. I began tuning into the people around me, watching their actions and observing their lives. (You should try it sometime. You learn can a lot about human nature and yourself in the process.) The point is...everything I absorbed...I wrote about it. Writing was my therapy. It kept me sane.

When I hit college, my writing obsession calmed, as I had less and less time to devote to it. But writing is something I always come back to. And like an old friend, we pick up right where we left off.

Now I've graduated and entered the ranks of the "great unwashed" (I got that from Across the Universe, I think) and even though my free time is scarce at best, I find the need to write is driving me again.

THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS

Fave Books (only a few): I must read some Jane Austen everyday, The House of the Seven Gables, Leaves of Grass, Ulysses, The Sound and the Fury, Frankenstein, Candide, Great Expectations, A Christmas Carol, The Sketch Book, Ethan Frome, Little Women, The Portable Dorothy Parker, Wurthering Heights, The Bell Jar, In Cold Blood, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Joy Luck Club, Carrie, The Shining, Tuesdays with Morrie, Veil of Roses, Where the Heart Is, Speak, The Bielski Brothers, Songbook...I could go on and on and on. All I can say is I love to read as much as I love to write...maybe even more. I'm not tied to any genre and style. If it moves me, I am sold on it.

Fave Shows: Grey's Anatomy, House, Supernatural, Smallville, CSI, Bones

Past Shows: Buffy/Angel, Dark Angel, Friends, Gilmore Girls

Fave Movies: I LOVE movies. I really, REALLY LOVE movies. So making a list is pointless.

Fave Music: As you will note, many of my stories are music themed. This is because before I am a writer-I am a musician. Writing may be my obsession, but music is my life. So again, making a list is pointless.

Stories Update (9/26/2009):

Singing from the Heart: (On hiatus) I started writing this story in 2003, and now six years later, it still haunts me. It's like that nagging feeling you get when you can't remember if you left the iron/oven/etc on before you left the house. I always have this story in the back of my mind. It was my first on Fictionpress.com, and I have every intention of completing it. But for now, I am shifting my energies to other things.

Friendship on Fire (formerly Fever Hot!): I am very excited by this story. I have a whole series in mind for these characters. I will be focusing more on this story for now.

Coming Attractions:

Better Off Wed? (Working Title): Blue-collar small town girl Ryan (girl) is going to marry weathly blue-blood, sophisicated Colin Hamilton, the catch of the century. But only if his parents, her parents, a crazy aunt, hermit, and his first love, Lana, don't get in the way first. Being engaged was never so complicated.

Total Knockout (Working Title): Evey has been crazy about Luca forever. Problem? He doesn't know she exists. But one VERY embarrassing situation later...she's all he can think about. But is that necessarily a good thing?
