This is me, returning to Fictionpress under a different name because my old one was far too recognizable for my shy and insecure tendencies concerning my habit of reading and reviewing sappy teen romance on this site. Also, if I ever write anything, I'm even more shy and insecure about that.
Anyway. I am a reader, and not so much a writer, though I dabbled in it for a while, and failed miserably all the time. Reading, though, is a passion, and on those days when my friends ditch me or my boyfriend is not in town, 90 percent of the time, I'll be reading.
As to what I read:
As previously stated, I read a lot of sappy teen romance here. I do not expect extremely high quality writing from Fictionpress, although, every once in a while, I find it anyway. However, if I start reading something, and the quality is low enough that it hurts my brain, no, I won't read it. Mostly, this site is an outlet for my boredom, in much the same way that other people surf Youtube or something. Primarily, because of my tendency to visit this site a lot in a short period of time and then not come back for a while, I'll read already-completed stories, though most of the stories on my favorites list have been there for quite a while, and may not reflect this tendency. If I review, it will likely be long, and critical, and since long, critical reviews take some effort, I don't review often. If it makes you feel any better, I don't write anything for anyone else to review, either.
One of the side effects of reading all this sappy teen romance on Fictionpress is that I come across amaturely written stories and such, read them anyway, and then think, "Well damn, I could do better than that." See, I have in my head this delusion that I'm kind of good at writing, which I guess I am, up until the point where I realize I'm writing a cliche and it's boring me to tears and I don't know what else to do with it. Then I abandon it and don't touch it for long periods of time, and when I do go back and look at it, I decide I hate it and delete it forever.
So the point is (and there is one, I swear) that if I start posting anything, don't trust me. I think if I ever try to post anything again, it will be something already at least majorly outlined, if not already written in at least rough draft form, but still - don't trust me. I am not likely to finish it. Do not get your hopes up.
Other than that, there is not a lot that I have to say about myself. I am seventeen, and I live in Alaska, and I like music and people that aren't retarded and San Francisco and art. (This is 2007, and I am dating this so you know when I haven't updated it for years and this is no longer completely true.) And I think that is all.
