Music is everything.

Current Work in Progress:
-The Mix Tape
A story of two friends, who lost their chance in high school. The story starts at the beginning of their freshman year and then following into their college years, played out from different points of view in a series of narratives and jumbled thoughts and memories. I'm not sure how to end it so let's see how this one plays out.
this one is kind of a project I've given myself. It's been a while since I've written anything really, so I want to try out this story that I don't yet know how to end and I plan to write every chapter differently, like one in first person, the second in third person, and the third, then maybe the fourth in second person. Kind of like excercises for me to get back into writing. If you don't like it, I'm sorry and I promise I'll get to working on one of the rest soon! :D
Upcoming Titled Works in Progress:
Kiera Sparks has boy troubles. Lots of them. She can't seem to stay on any guy's radar for more than a month, and then (poof!) he's lost interest in her and has found an interest in her best friend, Holly Tilden. Holly is everything Kiera wishes she herself was: Glamorous, gorgeous, funny, charismatic, and sexy. Kiera, on the other hand, was just too plain and simple; a girl next door type. Like the song said, "She's Miss America, and I'm just the girl next door..." The type who never gets the guy. At least, that’s what it’s like at her school. Thankfully for Kiera, Holly has rejected any and all guys that Kiera has liked, and has remained faithfully by Kiera's side for nearly ten years. Holly, being as good a friend as she possibly can be, tells Kiera that high school guys are all the same and not to worry about it too much. Kiera, however, has other notions, and seeks the advice of her long time friend and ex boyfriend, Ricky Stanton. When Kiera and Holly go to the mall, Holly secretly invites Ricky to surprise Kiera. Kiera is ecstatic, but later confides in Holly that she has finally admitted to herself that, though she is, to some degree, still in love with Ricky, she feels that she has to let go of him and what they once had so that she can finally move on with her life. "Maybe that's what's wrong with me," she tells Holly. Holly is skeptical and tries to convince Kiera otherwise. What will happen when Ricky decides to show up at Kiera’s school dance that following weekend?
-The Outcasts of Society (temporary working name)
Roxanne Dallas and her friends are about to perform live for the first time in their hometown of Sedalia since they started their band, the Outcasts of Society, back in the 9th grade. Sure, they’ve performed at gigs and everything, but never in a real performance space, in a real club. They are nervous. Excited. Ecstatic. Worried. The adrenaline is pumping as the show is about to start. Roxanne can’t wait for it. It’ll take her mind off of things. Off of him. She forces herself to think of the band tonight, and the awesome show they’re about to put on. They have a guest band that will be featured on the last song on their set, and everyone says they’re great, but Roxanne has her doubts. She doubts whether they’ve actually rehearsed the music. She questions whether or not their work ethic is a reliable one. She has never met any of their guests' band mates. She has never even heard of their band! And on top of all that, a lot of her own band mates have been acting very strangely. Were they hiding something from her? And as if that wasn’t enough, someone has been stalking her recently. Could the stalker be the person she thinks it is? Even worse…could her stalker be in the audience right at that moment, waiting for the perfect opportunity to grab her?
Upcoming Untitled Works in Progress:
Seventeen-year-old Artemis Desson has gone on vacation to Vietnam for three weeks with her family. Once there, her mother introduces her to a few friends of the family, including an extremely handsome son of theirs named Hunter Sift. Hunter feels that, as a yearly visitor to Vietnam and someone who knows a lot about it, it is his duty to take Artemis around for a few nighttime rides on one of the millions of motor scooters that swarm the streets of Saigon every day. Over the next two and a half weeks, they grow closer and closer by the day. He gives her a bracelet that he made for her, as a sign of the bond that they have and the times that they have shared. Finally, the day that Artemis is to fly back home arrives, and Hunter takes her on one last joyride on the way to the airport. It is there that he tells her that he has fallen in love with her and hopes that she never forgets him. Artemis, on the flight home, realizes just how much she will miss him. When her senior year of high school starts, she tells her friends about her summer, and how she left her heart in Vietnam with a boy she may never meet again. Will she ever see him again, or will he just be another memory?
