Story Stats:

Born To Run: The only story I am currently updating, I've rewritten and added new content to existing chapters and will be uploading new chapters shortly!

All other stories are old and most likely won't be updated though I'll probably leave them up just for the heck of it...

A Little About Me:

Name: Woodstock

Age: 25

Gender: F

Hobbies/Talents/Interests: I'm usually writing and if I'm not, I'm reading...most of the time. I love music although I have no musical talent whatsoever (seriously, I don't sing except on road trips, and even then, very badly), but I almost always have it playing no matter what I'm doing. I'll freely admit I'm obsessed with history, I really don't know what I'm doing in the 21st century at all...it's ridiculous, I'm a historical reenactor, specifically for the 18th Century (American Colonial/Revolutionary) period.

A few (thousand) favorites!!:

Books/Authors:"Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte, "Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte, "On The Road" by Jack Kerouac, "Naked Lunch" by William S Burroughs, "The Quiet American" by Graham Green. (There's a million others, so I'm just limiting myself to a few...)

Music: The Beatles, Bruce Springtsteen, Billy Joel, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Black Keys, The Killers, Roo Panes...Right now I’m listening to "Pompeii" by Bastille

Movies: Almost Famous, You've Got Mail, Across The Universe, Rent, On The Road (Despite Kristen Stewart *shudder*), Fiddler on The Roof, The Man From Snowy River, I Dreamed of Africa, My Man Godfrey (1936), The War of the Buttons, Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken, Breathless (French film also know as À bout de souffle).

TV Series: Firefly, American Dreams, Battlestar Galactica, Jane Eyre (2006 BBC mini-series), Hornblower (A&E series running from 1998-2003), Pillars of the Earth, Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, Parts Unknown.

Quotes:

"Many people hear voices when no one is there. Some of them are called mad and are shut up in rooms where they stare at the walls all day. Others are called writers and they do pretty much the same thing..." - Meg Chittenden

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it..." -Aristotle

"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed..." -Ernest Hemmingway

"And in the end the love you take, is equal to the love you make..."- The Beatles

"We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of the dream. Wandering by lone sea breakers, and sitting by desolate streams. World losers and world forsakers, for whom the pale moon gleams. Yet we are movers and the shakers of the world forever it seems..."-Arthur William Edgar O'Shaughnessy

"This is the land of peace, love, justice, and no mercy..."- Bruce Springsteen

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars..." -Jack Kerouac

Chasing Mussolini by it's only castles burning reviews
Tess never meant for any of this to happen, never asked for a rock star to fall in love with her, for fascist sheep to invade her yard or for her new friend Ian, to be so sexy and have so many rabidly jealous girls after him. But somehow, it did.

Born To Run reviews
In 1966 Millerton Pennsylvania was little more than a smudge on the midwest landscape, nearly straddling the line between PA & OH. I was 17 that year, on the verge of what I thought was manhood & all I wanted was to get out, anywhere had to be better than here. **New Content**
