Well, about me. First off is my name. I guess you can call me Bri. I'm trying to get through my teenage years (13), which sometimes sucks but mostly I like. Umm...i write mostly poetry, short stories so far I have one, but later on you may see more. I think i'm pretty good at writing. I hope i'm good being that I want to attend Oxford University and major in English. That is, like, my life's dream!!! Umm...let's see what else.
Fave Authors/Books: Gaston Leroux (The Phantom of the Opera), Phillip Pullman (author of His Dark Materials. BEST BOOKS EVER!!!) Garth Nix (author of Sabriel trilogy), Lemony Snicket (series of unfortunate events) Christopher Paolini (author of Eragon-soon to be a movie!!!) Willo Davis Roberts, Robert Cormier, Lois Duncan, and JOyce McDonald. I also love the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. it is very deep. Well, the list goes on, but these are the best...
Recommended Book(s): Well, of course all the books by the authors above are recommended, thats why i put them up there, but one book that i've read that kind of stuck out at me was "Ishmael" by Daniel Quinn. It's about human ecology and our place as humans, our destiny, and our lifestyle now. What were humans meant for and what are we doing and what should we be doing? This book is absolutely amazing and thought provoking. It just...blew me away and i cannot come up with any praise for it that would seem adequate, so i justHIGHLY recommend that you read it.And then, of course,comes the sequel "My Ishmael" which i have read, and i am telling you that if you read Ishmael, you must read this one! It will dry those tears from the first book right up! I shall say no more, lest i spoil it.

Well, uhm..reading my work is good, but reviewing it is even better. i try to read and review everyone that reviews something of mine. i accept both good and constructive reviews.I love constructive criticism!!! With constructive criticism, be honest but please dont attack me.
Okay, thanks to all of my readers, and a special thanks to my reviewers. Especially since now every one of my poems has been reviewed. Yippee!!!
Oh, and check out my faves...They're there cuz they're...well...my faves! and they deserve a good review or two.
Announcement: About this piece of fiction...I wrote a prelude and...that's as far as i got...i'm really tryin...i have it all planned out in my head (kinda), i just can't seem to get around to writin it. Maybe if yall send me enough emails of encouragement, i'll get off my lazy butt and write it...
Okay. now if you have time to waste reading this profile of mine, than you have time to use (notice i said 'use', not 'waste') reading and reviewing at least 2 of my works, being that i write poems which dont take long to read, but they leave a lasting impression. But i guess you have to see that for yourself...
I dream in black and white
I dream to myself
I dream aloud
I dream of things you know
I dream of things unfathomable
And when I am gone
My dreams shall linger
