Author has written 7 stories for Life.
I write what comes from the heart.
Usually, that's about self-injury, depression, and suicide. Because that's what I go through every day of my life, and writing is my way to vent.
So be warned: what I write may very well be triggering. But what I write is very true, all of it. I hope that in writing I can capture the emotions around me, of exactly how I'm feeling. I hope that in writing I can relate to others who go through what I go through, and that to those who are lucky enough to never have known what it's like to be fighting a losing battle against yourself, I hope to be able to show them what it's like for us.

Quick Bio: waves Hiya. I'm Ivvy. I'm 16 and I'm a junior in high school. I've participated and won NaNoWriMo 2007 (53k) and JanNoWriMo (60k). Look me up on NaNoWriYe, I'm autumn_bud, going for a grand total of 300k this year. But enough of the writing stuff. : P Basically I'm just a girl wandering lost in the halls of my life, trying to figure out what my purpose here is. I suck at life, but at least I'm wicked cool. (Okay, okay - I got that off an avatar somewhere, I forget what site I was on when I saw it). Blessed with the coolest friends ever, I couldn't live without y'all! Uhm. That's it. :
Current WIP: Once Upon a Fake Facade (70k-ish) - about a 14 year old girl who struggles with self-harm, an abusive father, horrific flashbacks, suicidal thoughts, and friendships founded, broken, mended, and broken again. (Basically, what I went through at the wonderful age of thirteen, minus my best friend killing herself.) I know, I know - it sounds horribly cliche, doesn't it? What I'm hoping to convey with this WIP is what it's really like to be a teenager in an abusive situation she can't get out of, what it's really like when you have to resort to self-harm to be free of the pain all the time, what it's really like to be held prisoner in your own mind, and what it's really like to sink so low you want to kill yourself. Hoping to clear up the awful myths that surround self-harm and suicidal teens. Hoping no one reading this is offended or anything - but look, to be frank, I've tried to kill myself before and I'm still fighting myself (am repeating myself, sorry..), and this is how I'm trying to figure out how I feel about it all.
