About me...

I'm going into high school this year... I've just turned fourteen. Writing is just something I like to do for fun, and I do it whenever I'm inspired and/or have a sudden epiphany :). I love writing poetry... but I do write prose too.

I'm fourteen, like I said. My birthday's in June...

I'm almost five foot two... I know I'm short... I've got wavyish (I don't think that's a word) black hair, and brown eyes...

I love horses, and reading, and writing (most of the time), and drawing, and playing the piano and violin (but I HATE practicing), and talking to my friends... and more things... but I won't bore you any longer.

I live in New Mexico, and as my teacher (jokingly, I think... I hope...) said, "Poor New Mexico kids, they've never seen a cloud in their life." That's not true, obviously, but I still find it kinda sad...

Oh, and if you want to, please IM me. I'm almost always on during the weekends, and I'm on pretty much whenever I get home from school. Talking to new people is so much fun... my sn should be just above this, but if you're too lazy to find it or don't see it, it's burnisbetter.

I'm working on a big writing project, called Flight of the Eagle.

Stuff of mine that you should read -

If you're looking for fiction, read Deceiver. It's my favorite of my fiction works right now... Aria Kaelar seems like the perfect person. Beautiful, kind, generous, rich... until a man discovers her dark side.

If you're looking for poetry, read All I'll Ever Be. My favorite poem right now, though usually I think my poems are all decent. All I'll Ever Be is about unrequited love... I'm proud of it, because it actually rhymes!

Flight of the Eagle is the writing I'm working on most, as I mentioned. It's all right... but I think it needs some major revision, I'm not very happy with it right now.

Other things you should read, that aren't mine-

Queen of Glass- by S. J. Maas - A retelling of Cinderella, with a twist. Or many twists. (The main character's an assassin.) A retelling of the classic Cinderella story from a completely different point of view.

http://www.angelfire.com/poetry/crystalmaiden/CatsEye.html
Cat's Eye- by theCrystalMaiden - Sora, a noble girl, dreams of adventure. . . but finds she's not quite ready for it when she's kidnapped by an assassin on the night of her wedding.

He Punks Me Not by Slideshow reviews
I'll chase and stalk him until he is mine. I'm pretty determined. Unfortunately his best friend thinks my existence is pointless and I'm unworthy. And, well, he's pretty damn determined too. / Left up just for comparison with my writing then and now.

His Phenomenal Eyes by Bleeding Air reviews
STORY REMOVED. I wanted him to look at me. I wanted him to sing to me. But no, this song was dedicated to a girl who he had never met and would probably never know. Oh God. I wanted to cry for him. Oneshot!

Time's Song by Jacob Schmidt reviews
The speaker tells how times can change quickly. This poem was initially meant to describe the fact that humans have no control over their fates.

Elegie
Another piece I wrote for English, a companion (sort of) to Moment Musical. This was inspired by Rachmaninoff's Elegie in E-flat Minor, from his Morceaux de Fantaisie, Op. 3, No.1. Yet another beautiful piece of music and also worth listening to.

Moment Musical
A piece I wrote for English, inspired by Rachmaninoff's Moment Musical, Op. 16, No. 5. A very beautiful piece of music, definitely worth listening to.

Truly Have I Fallen reviews
Sometimes, random lines will just occur to me and I simply have to use them in some way... thus, this poem was created.

Gathering Love reviews
This is an essay I'm actually proud of, because it's not really written in an essay style. We're reading a book called Food: True Stories of Eating Around the World, and we were supposed to write our own. Mine's about one of the times I went to China.

Monsters reviews
Hippies, acid covered slugs, and an out of control Greyhound bus. What more could you want? We did these in class, where we each wrote a bit, and we ended up with nine stories like this... they were pretty funny, actually.

The call of the eagle, a savage cry,/Will bring courage, soaring through the sky./And only the ones, chosen by gods, and true,/May conquer the evil, and bring bounty anew./ Please review, I really want to know everyone's opinion on this!

Deceiver reviews
We were reading Edgar Allan Poe at school, so our assignment was to write a story in his style. The page breaks are changes in the point of view, as this was one of the story's criteria. I'm really happy with this one.

Just some random pondering on my part, thanks to a book I read. I'm not exactly thrilled with it, but I don't know how to change it, either...

I wrote this one night when I was bored. I tried to include all the fairy tales I'd ever heard of, but obviously I didn't succeed, since someone pointed out to me that Beauty and the Beast isn't in here...

Yet ANOTHER poem for our poetry readings, though this one had no parameters at all, we could write whatever we felt like.

Another quick poem for our poetry readings. This time, we had to incorporate a literary theme. I chose "knowing versus believing."

I wrote this one when I was in 6th grade, but it's always been one of my favorite poems. We were supposed to use personification in the poem.

I've never had a horse, though I want one. I was pondering the pain that people must feel when they lose their horses, or any pet.

We had these poetry readings at school, so I wrote this in five minutes. We had to pick a line to start with from a list the teacher had, and mine was, "You have a secret."
