(Regarding my pen name.)

Update 7/12: Hey all...so while FP was a huge part of me growing up and shaping who I am, I'm focusing on other interests right now, like my decision to be a painter and writer/illustrator of books. Ergo, while I still love to write, I don't have the time or the passion like I used to. I'll leave everything up so it can be enjoyed, but it's doubtful that anything currently uncompleted will ever be finished. If you're interested in following my art career PM me for my artist website!

About Me:

I'm studying illustration at art school and trying to balance wanting to be both a writer and an artist; all of the stories posted here were written when I was in high school but I still think they're filled with all sorts of gooey nostalgia, so check them out.

I value humor and symbolism above everything else, and detest unnecessary drama--so that is how I try to write my stories as well. In my writing, you will see me actively trying to avoid cliches, and if i do embrace them, it'll be with some stupid twist I thought was clever once upon a time.

N here are some final words of wisdom from a favorite movie of mine:

"Molly: I knew it. As soon as I saw that suit.
Henry: Knew what?
Molly
: You're a 'just' guy.
Henry: What's a 'just' guy?
Molly: A guy just like you. Same hair, same suit, same shoes, walks around, no matter what, you think it's all just a store, it's just a bench, it's just a tree. It's just what it is, nothing more!"

-Molly Mahoney and Henry Weston, Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium

Counting Chickens by pixy-dizzy reviews
She wanted the fairy tale. She wanted the chick flick. She wanted the soaring music, the dozen roses, the Princess Bride kiss-to-end-all-kisses. She wanted the cliché. It’s a pity she was so busy up in the clouds that she didn’t recognize it when it came.
