Hi there, I'm Tabitha. And I'm BACK! (I've been working and going to school and have not had anytime whatsoever to work on my stories
Yeah, so more personal info - I'm a fake redhead, I'm short, and I live in Southern California, though born in Naperville Illinois.
Whenever I start writing a story, I'm inspired by one particular factor and I try and write an entire story around it. Here's what the inspirations were for the stories that I've written so far:
One Moment of Glory: The song "Glory" from Rent. It's pretty obvious - but yeah.
My Millionaire: I love road trips. I wanted to write something about a road trip, thats about it.
My Only Hope: Some one actually told me that once - that he was my only hope.. I'm not with him and I'm perfectly happy, so apparently he's not my only hope! This story is not in progress any more - I will not be completing it - see With A Little Help From My Enemy for the story of Kyan and Tess.
Adventures in Boarding School: I loved the story by Cordelia Brown and we were working on rewriting it. I had lost contact with her - and now am working on it on my own. I am still going to update this - hopefully soon, too!
With A Little Help From My Enemy: This story was steeped in inspiration (for more about that see the last chapter in it for more). However, the real reason why I wrote it was the song "Human," by John McLaughlin. I had a scene of two people dancing to this song and the guy singing it to the girl... I just needed a story to write around it.
The Quiet Sound Of Pride: I had not originally intended it to be a retelling of Pride and Prejudice. After I wrote the first chapter, I decided that it would be a cool twist and so I went with it. The line, "I have my foot in a bucket! This is my last dance here, and my foot is in a bucket!" I had that line chapters before I wrote it in the story - also the idea of Darcy paying for her scholarship as well - originally, Wickham wasn't going to play a huge part in it like he did - Darcy and Lizzy were going to be in a Yachting race and Darcy would have deliberately crashed the boat, leaving it to be Lizzy's fault and then she would loose her scholarship - it being Darcy's fault. She was going to twist her ankle on a turn just as she had - but it would have been an angry dance with Darcy. I'm glad that it turned out how it did - I liked Darcy too much to make him a jerk. Not to mention, I just love Pride and Prejudice.
Taking Chances: I have a particular scene for this story that I cant write down yet... I know, it's mean, but I cant because I haven't written it into the story yet - I'll put it here as soon as I can. But I will say that the song by Celine Dion, "Taking Chances," is a great song and I was inspired by those lyrics. Also, I love musicians. Being a fellow musician, I greatly enjoy the music department at my college and that building at my school has been a great inspiration to me as well.
I want to thank all my reviewers! I absolutely love you all! You've really made me want to write! Whenever I feel bad about myself, I just read your reviews and all of a sudden I'm feeling one hundred percent better! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
