Thanks for visiting my profile! I hope you'll read my stuff and leave a comment, even if it's a bad one...I'll love you forever!
Blackbird, Fly: I was on chapter 20 but since I combined chapters 4 and 5 I'm back to 19...oh well. The story is going through some very minor revisions, mostly just getting rid of typos and fixing some minor discrepancies. I should have a new chapter up by the end of the week! Please, please R&R! Since FP is lame and only allows a 255 character summary I thought I'd post the extended version here: In 1966 Millerton, Pennsylvania was little more than a smudge on the midwestern landscape, nearly straddling the state lines between Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. A black-hole of a town built up around a Steel Mill in the early 19th century and since forgotten about. I was seventeen that year, on the verge of what I thought was manhood and all I wanted was to get out. I didn’t care how or where to, anywhere had to be better than here.
Born To Run: I won't be updating this story anymore, but never fear! Blackbird, Fly is the new and improved BTR!
The Highwayman: The plot is beginning to flounder but I love the story too much to let it die so a rewrite may be in the works very shortly. Special thanks to all those who've taken an interest in the story, especially those who took the time to review, you've inspired me to continue with it!
The Cavalier: A prequel to The Highwayman.
New Stories To Come:
Fare Thee Well: The souls of two star-crossed lovers keep returning to earth, but each attempt to be together is thwarted by events throughout history.
I've no intention, currently, of updating any of the posted stories not mentioned above as they're very old, and well, frankly, it shows. I'm leaving them up mostly for my own amusement and hopefully yours as well...
A Little About Me: or a lot...whichever.
Name: Call me Woodstock or any veriation that comes to mind.
Occupation: student/ author
Personality: Recently a friend decribed me as one of those weird smart people who only seems weird and/or smart because no one else has any idea what they're talking about... :)
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 also interested in travel, art, photography, cars, cooking, kayaking and theatre...and I'm thinking of taking up knitting...
Location: The great white north...uhg, gotta love (hate) Michigan. I've lived in, been to, or at least passed through most of the continental U.S., I haven't been abroad (yet). You can also find me on Goodreads and Youtube, under Woodstock1330.
