Friday, April 13, 2012: Waking up and coming back.

About Me:

My name is Jill. I'm 23 years old and live in South Jersey, USA. In 2010, I earned a B.A. in Literature with a Creative Writing track. I eventually hope to obtain a Master of Fine Arts degree in Fiction. Right now, I'm working long hours for a small amount of pay in the human services industry. My work is rewarding but not long-term. I scrape by independently in a trailer park and love that part of my life. However, I've dropped off the face of the creative earth since graduation and am in the process of waking up and coming back as of April 2012.

About My Work:

My love for writing was born in seventh grade, when I began to fail math (my favorite subject until that time) and gain a passion for English. In retrospect, I think it's the result of a 106 fever I vaguely remember hearing about (no medical care happened). I wrote a few poems in that time, for school or otherwise, and was pleasantly surprised at how much praise I gained for my work. I began to envision a life as a paid poet (nearly impossible, I now know). I wrote a few extremely short stories as well, not liking them as much as the poems. In ninth grade, I began working on my first novel, finishing it in around five months. I've since rewritten that particular novel several times (the most recent version is currently on FictionPress - Mortality), and started many, many sequels, even finishing a few. I'm currently still working on the many sequels in the large Mortality and Immortality series, and writing shorter works and poems as they come to me. I haven't really written for myself since the end of high school, but as of April 2012, I'm finally coming back.

Works of Mine that I Would Recommend:

Yearning Without Focus: My senior thesis for my B.A.

The Shade of Eternity: This is a short story that I wrote for my Creative Writing class during my senior year of high school. It deals with a concept called the Darkness, the place and substance beyond all other levels of reality (later called the "void" and "abyss"). I had been wanting to write about the Darkness for years at the time and still hopr to explore it further, maybe expanding this story to a novel. Reviews are much appriciated.

Delilah: "Delilah" is an extended short story with deals with many issues, including suicide and sexuality. It was the most...edgy thing I had written at the end of high school, and with the added supernatural twists, I was very satisfied with it.

Mortality: Mortality was my first novel, the beginning of a long series I'm currently still working on. I know that it could use some work as far as grammer goes, but I would appriciate any comments about what I do have. Tell me where I went wrong...or what I did right. I'm thinking about rewriting it again with college experience.

This is so far from my usual dark genres that I'm almost ashamed to post it. Just a little ryming poem to the first and only person I have ever truly loved, about how much he's changed my life. As far love poems go, I think it turned out pretty good. R&R
