Author has written 29 stories for General, Life, Haiku, Love, Nature, General, and Young Adult.
Dawn writes. She is quite fond of prose, though she dabbles in poetry. It has been said that prose is twice as good as poetry, but that's just the word on the sheet.

About Dawn's Writing:
Shells is a uterine picture. Valley of View is her lovechild.
Dawn's poetry is.
She favours Canadian/British spelling ('colour' is not a typo of color)

About Dawn:
Dawn is precisely 5'1". Thus, her shorty powers are positively brobdingnagian.
She is Canadian.
She is finishing her undergrad degrees in Psych and English this year. Woo! Party! She hides her new words in a drawer and she's definitely psychoanalysing you secretly. Shhhh.
She is a pirate. A rather petite picaroon, but a scallywag nonetheless
She is mostly made of mangoes.

What Dawn Likes:
Archery, chocolate, climbing, good companionship, flying plastic, mangoes, music, philosophy, skating, video games, reading and writing.
Her favourite book is currently the perks of being a wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.
Her favourite number is 21. Or twenty-one if you like letters.
Her favourite movie is currently Pirates of the Caribbean/Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children.
Her favourite music is indefinable. But amongst all the mess, she always enjoys Yann Tiersen, the Goo Goo Dolls, Mindless Self Indulgence and Nobuo Uematsu.
She is fond of Alan Rickman. She is not ashamed (just don't ask her about the list).
She loves cocktail umbrellas. They are her insignia.
She likes being silly. It's one of her favourite pastimes.
The word saccharine. Mmmm...

Dawn's Momentary Distractions:
She is currently in love with the song Room of Angel by Akira Yamaoka and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn
She is currently reading Teeth by Fred Stenson.
She is enjoying shamanistic nothings when she should be working.

What Dawn Dislikes:
Dawn does not like internet speak. Phrases such as "y do u kep riting? ur stuff sux" or "EEEEEEEEEEEEK smooshie-huggle-kins to your glomp glomp snatch" make her entrails feel the need to expunge themselves out of her ears. Though she finds ubermicro hilarious.
Religious zealotry. Something that fills her small frame with infinite anger and the urge to wet her pants from fear simultaneously cannot be good.
Excessive, ridiculously poor quality angst. Angst can be done well. But it is not done well often... As in, she's not really ever seen it, but she's heard rumours.

Why Dawn is here:
Dawn lives for creative and constructive criticism. She has come to the conclusion that the internet is a cesspool of criticism, so she has immersed her work in its inky depths. She wishes it (the internet) were filled with well-thought-out criticism. However, free-service criticism suits her just fine. She would like to make it perfectly clear she does not object to harsh words so long as they are not likened to the ilk of previously mentioned internet speak. 'Flaming' is a state of mind.

Stuff people other than Dawn seem to find important/interesting:
No. of stories archived: 29
Highest review count for one story: 23
Lowest review count for one story: 0
Total no. of reviews recieved: 106
Reviews written by me: 139
No. of people who have me on their Fav. Authors list: 16
No. of people I have on my Fav. Authors list: 7

Dawn's Momentary Last Words:
Not much new, just a quick cesspool glance. Shells will probably be updated soon, though I don't know how long it will stay up.

For all purposes of plagiarism prevention, let it be known that dawningfear and Dawn English are one and the same.
