Some spectacularly spontaneous subjects:
I suck at parking
I want to be a crazy cat lady when I'm old
I LOVE COUGAR FOOTBALL!! We may suck now, but hey, it's always darkest before dawn. Things will get better. And we faithful cougs will stand by our team NO MATTER WHAT!!
I love anything to do with psychology. I finally certified as a psych major!! :D
I have weird fingernails, and my second toe is longer than my big toe (which means I was born into royalty!). Also, I snort when I laugh, and I sneeze 8 or 9 times on average per sneeze attack, which I call sneizures. My record is 17.
I'm trying to think of an analogy for how I read and write...I devour books like a black hole devours light (hehe, I like space too!) and I write like a farmer--that is to say, I just plow through the writing. I don't edit till wayyyyy later (which means pretty much everything on here is NOT edited and probably never will be. Everything's raw).
And speaking of raw...I like my steak still mooing. Rare as rare can be. Call me crazy (I am) but I like the way it seems to melt in my mouth. I'd eat it raw, if people let me :).
One of my personal philosophies: You're only young once. This is when we get to be obnoxious and make the elderly people shake their heads and smile wryly, remembering their own days of being young trouble-making hooligans. Sing, dance, pop the champagne cork, and laugh along the way.
Heart Lilies: A story about a young woman trying to find her way in a world that despises the very thing that makes her who she is. Haunted by a terrible and painful past, she struggles to find love and trust once again. Completed, and edited on a once-through.
Dark Angel: A story about Isabeaux Bridges, a girl unwillingly controlled all her life by her stepmother. When an ophan boy rescues her, she is suddenly thrust into an ancient war only she can prevent. Then, when the ultimate disaster strikes, she is forced to choose between those she loves and saving the whole world. Incomplete. I may continue this one. I'll try to, but I'm writing something new that I WON'T be posting here.
Eternal Night: This is one I haven't posted, and if you're interested in reading it, you'll have to talk to me. I don't want this one stolen, because I'll probably be sending it in for publication. It's about a princess caught up in a war begun thousands of years ago. Against her father's wishes, she dresses as a boy to join the army and winds up in a special corps of men who are sent into the most dangerous battleground; the Black Forest. It's complete, and I am writing a sequel. If you're interested, let me know. I need beta readers and a name for it. Thanks!
Still Waters Run Deep: Cordelia Andreson has been abused throughout her life, it rains when she cries, and her best friend is obsessed with accounting, a terrible subject. Suddenly she is immersed (pun intended) in waters too deep even for her when Ari, a weird boy with broncos, tells her she is a water elemental (but not like the fishy kind). She fights her way to freedom with friends and newfound power. Complete.
Feeding the Fire: Sunny Tempest lost her parents at a very young age, and after living with an adoptive family for several years, she lost her second father and her brother is in a coma. Upset, she wanders in the woods, where a young girl tells her she is a fire elemental. Suddenly more fires are popping up everywhere, and Sunny has to find a way to stop it and save her brother before it's too late. Complete.

There have been some changes made to The Rainbow. First of all, the name. It is currently going by the title of Still Waters Run Deep, and the main character's name has changed.
Alright, so I have added quite a bit of change to Heart Lillies, but I can't update the story here without deleting it and starting over. If you're interesting in reading the modified version, let me know and I'll send you the parts I've changed, but I'm warning you, it's a bit choppy. I added it in the middle of the night, so the quality won't be that great. The main reason I added a chapter in the middle of an already perfectly-good one was because I wanted more content and i wanted to feed the romance a bit, but I couldn't find a suitable place to do it, so I had to break up a chapter. It's not that bad, but it needs work. Anyway, let me know!
