Hello readers!

I'm a 21-year-old California girl going to school in the-middle-of-nowhere, Texas. I'll read anything I can get my hands on (although right now I don't really have much time), but my favorite genres are science fiction/fantasy, drama, crime, classical literature, and philosophy/theology. I've been a Star Wars junkie for a long time. No, I still haven't read the Twilight series, and I'm not going to. I read the prologue to the second book and that was plenty for me. My current goals are to read all of the books on my bookshelf. Eventually I really am going to make a grand list of every book someone has ever recommended to me, and then start reading them, about 1 a week, if I can find them online.

I'm Christian, and my faith informs my writing a great deal. I doubt I could write from the perspective of a non-Christian if I tried, because I don't understand it and whatever I wrote would come out shallow and meaningless. If you don't like reading anything that might mention God once or twice, I suggest you go somewhere else, but if you're open-minded enough to maybe read a new perspective, check out what I've written. I can't hide who I am, even in fiction.

One of my weaknesses is that I find it very hard to write from the perspective of a guy. They make no sense to me.

One thing I like about my writing is that I feel like it's very self-aware. It knows what style it is, and isn't ashamed to be what it is. If that makes no sense to you, that's okay; that's just how I think about it.

I love to write, although I don't have a lot of time for it. I'd like to write science fiction/fantasy novels sometime in the future, but right now I don't have a lot of work up. Here's what I have now:

Stories:

What Makes a Love Story Good?, The End, The Beginning, and Out of Step: Angsty one-shots. A few things about them:

a) They were written when I was in the throes of depression, and some when I was immature and sixteen. Please don't judge me.

b) I have trouble summarizing them for a few reasons: first, they're more like reflections on one situation or moment in time, so there's not much plot that actually happens in each one. Also, my goal is to explicate/imply as much backstory as I can in only one or two pages, so if I summarized it, that would give it all away. The stories I have now are mostly all about high school/college students and their myriad trials in love. If the one or two word summary I've posted interests you, go ahead and read it.

c) Any resemblance to copyrighted fictional characters is purely unintentional and coincidental. Any resemblance to actual people or situations is not purely coincidental, but if I based a character on someone real, I have his/her permission.

Slow Down and Let Him Go: it was an angsty one-shot, but reviews convinced me to continue it and see what happens. I have no idea where it's going. Basic summary: She's in love with him; he never looks her way. Story of everyone's freaking life, I know. But what can I say? I write what I know. I try to make it interesting.

Love Makes Us Act Like We Are Fools: This one is happy. What the deuce happened? How did I manage that? Oh, and I wrote it at 12:30 in the morning when inspiration hit me in the side of the head, so I may have to go back and rewrite parts of it.

To Be Touched by the Holy: A college student and her conversations with God. Most of these will be written at 1:00 in the morning when inspiration attacks. They're pretty much just random philosophical ramblings, but I hope someone else gets something out of them.

Letters to Myself: Kind of a whimsical thing, inspired by a conversation with my roommate. What would I want to tell myself in different stages of my life, if I could? Nine chapters now, about thirteen more planned. It's a quick read. Check it out if you like.

The Things I'll Never Say: A series of more spontaneous ramblings, pretty emo, just the stuff I really want to say but can't. They're also mostly written late at night. They're probably not even literarily very good, but I'm posting them because it's the best form of self-expression I have. The first three chapters were written months or more previous to now, but the next ones will be posted as I write them.

To Be A Friend: I do know where this is going, but it's going to be a little while before it gets to where I enjoy writing it enough that I write fast. I'm also short on time. Stupid school.

God Cheats: A paper for my class on Teaching Good News: What is the gospel? Unique, slightly playful take on it. Interested in comments on the theology and the writing.

Poems:

Farewell to Sloth, I Am: I wrote these during high school for assignments. They're not too great, but I like them.

Helpless: Spontaneous attack of words that had to be written down. Meh. Kind of pointless.

The DayTime of the Night, Kiss Me at Sunset, What Are Dreams Made Of?, Darling, A Rest Stop Romance: More spontaneous attacks of words. They are startlingly happy. I don't know what I'm going to do with myself if I keep writing this happy crap. I've lost my ability to write angst since I met the love of my life, which really irritates me. Oh well.

The Voice of Salvation: Word vomit that's not happy or sad, just reflective. Christian.

I've got stuff I wrote in the past that I want to upload, but since I'm not writing really frequently, I'll try to space those out as I put them up.

Reviews and helpful ideas would be appreciated.

Oh, an explanation of my penname: blorange is the juxtaposition of blue and orange, and it is the awesomest thing ever. Go to http://www.blorange.tk

Happy reading!

You've heard of spam awards, where the title of the award is four words starting with S. P. A. M. in some humorous fashion. The form of this poem follows that, and the content is based on my reflections on a can of spam.

A Rest Stop Romance
What do you do when you're 250 miles apart, and neither of you have gas money for the whole drive or a whole weekend free? You meet wherever and however you can, for whatever length of time you can, no matter how short. Crazy? Yes. But why not?
