They call me Sara. I guess you could say that I'm weird, but others would say that that's an understatement. I'm from Reno, Nevada, but attending college in Pennsylvania, so cut me some slack on story updates. I often upload things and delete them a few days later for one simple reason: I'm one of those weirdos who wants everything perfect. Again, don't get annoyed if that's what happens. You'll often find that whatever I upload is either over-dramatic or scary angry. That's mostly just me venting. You don't like it, you don't read it. I love getting feedback, tell me what you think, I mean really think. I might just return the favor.

Here are some random facts:

I'm 21. It's not all that it's cracked up to be.

My favorite book of all time has to be a tie between Catcher in the Rye , The Great Gatsby and Wuthering Heights. Yeah, I know... Pretty stereotypical for someone like me.

My favorite series of all time has to be a tie between Harry Potter and The Keys to the Kingdom. What can I say, sometimes kiddie stories are awesome.

If any poetry has influenced me, it'd have to be anything by Shel Silverstein or DH Lawerence. Ooo, and Dr. Seuss... Creativity is key.

I like to think that my writing has humor and feeling in it. I think that's what makes a book great. Not to mention, humor is the key to making it through life unscathed.

Best Quotes EVER

I'm the most terrific liar you ever saw in your life. It's awful. If I'm on my way to the store to buy a magazine, even, and somebody asks me where I'm going, I'm liable to say I'm going to the opera. It's terrible. The Catcher in the Rye

All morons hate it when you call them a moron. The Catcher in the Rye

In my mind, I'm probably the biggest sex maniac you ever saw. The Catcher in the Rye

It's really too bad that so much crumby stuff is a lot of fun sometimes. The Catcher in the Rye

Don't ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody. The Catcher in the Rye

All right...I'm glad it's a girl. And I hope she'll be a fool -- that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool. The Great Gatsby

I felt a haunting loneliness sometimes, and felt it in others - poor young clerks who loitered in front of windows waiting until it was time for a solitary restaurant dinner - young clerks in the dusk, wasting the most poignant moments of night and life. The Great Gatsby

It takes two to make an accident. The Great Gatsby

Americans, while occasionally willing to be serfs, have always been obstinate about being peasantry. The Great Gatsby

Can't repeat the past?…Why of course you can! The Great Gatsby

He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God. So he waited, listening for a moment longer to the tuning-fork that had been struck upon a star. Then he kissed her. At his lips' touch she blossomed for him like a flower and the incarnation was complete. The Great Gatsby

Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter- tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther…And one fine morning- The Great Gatsby

So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. The Great Gatsby

" . . . he's more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same, and Linton's is as different as a moonbeam from lightning, or frost from fire." Wuthering Heights

"You said I killed you - haunt me, then! The murdered do haunt their murderers, I believe. I know that ghosts have wandered on earth. Be with me always - take any form - drive me mad! only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!" Wuthering Heights
