Author has written 9 stories for Love, Humor, and Romance.

Twenty-One. Hard cider addict. Vinyl collector. Coldplay lover. Patriot, c/o 2014. Reader. Writer. Friend. Daughter.

That about sums me up in a few choice words. This is Beautiful Bluebird (yes, after the Neil Young song) and I am a fledgling writer, who is only trying to practice what I love in order to channel it into a possible career. Ha. Not going to happen.

You can also call me Polly Weller (my non de plume).

Read and review. Constructive criticism. No flames, no horrible messages. If you simply don't like it, please, don't tell me in such a mean way. NO SPAM.

Acceptable: "I don't like it because of..." or "This story is just not my style, etc." or "You need to do this, this and this to improve..."

Unacceptable: THIS STORY SUCKS.

That hurts. We come here to write and be critiqued, not ridiculed.

I didn't come to fictionpress.com to talk. I came to write. Don't bother reading my profile. Read my work. That's how you can get to relate and know the author. You can figure out what kind of a person an author is by the way the author writes.

I guess I'd be...?

Hopeless romantic?

Peace & Crackers ;)

Immerse your soul in love.

My Characters:

Lyla, from Half the World Away: Known to me as "the optimist." Always has a positive outlook on life, and hopes the best for her family. Sixteen when our story starts, she's already gone through so much that if anything, she acts beyond her years. Sweet as southern pralines, but when provoked, can be as bitter as the salt from the ocean at the Isle of Palms, SC. Brown hair, brown eyes, the frame of a thirteen year old, but to her true love Liam, the most beautiful girl he's ever seen because of good nature and ability to see the best in everyone.

Phoebe, from This is the Past That's Mine: Known to me as "the fighter." Snarky and cynical on her good days, crude and sarcastic on her bad ones, Phoebe is ready to start college life away, far away, from her problems she left behind in Maywood, NJ. She's eighteen and ready to start anew with her amazing best friend, Jane, her mom, surrogate dad and brother, Michael, at her side...no matter what. Black hair, blue eyes, and a body that made one Robbie Hadyock go "wow," Phoebe knows that the men she dates want her for that body and not for herself. Robbie Hadyock, player extraordinaire, falls for Phoebe in the way she wants a man to fall for her, and he wants to stick around...that is, unless his mother gets involved.

Stella, from Nothing Better: Known to me as "the dreamer." Stella's been craving a family ever since she was born. She loves her mother to death, but jumps at the chance to meet her long-lost father. She's now in England, an ocean away from home, with her dad and a certain boy named Steven Davidson ready to help her deal with her homesickness...ready to start school at Cambridge, where her parents' love story began eighteen years ago. As her parents work out their differences, brown haired, gray-eyed Stella will create her own English love story as she and Steven get closer to one another.

Dani, from And You Sir, Are an Idiot: Known to me as "the soulmate." Dani's your average, high school girl, hopelessly infatuated with Luke Taylor, a boy she's been in love with since they became friends freshman year. Luke, however, is utterly clueless that Dani likes him...and he gets the message senior year, thanks to the meddling antics of Dani's best friend, Kelly. They finally get together and seem to be, as Luke terms it, "Andromeda and Perseus." However, Dani's arch-nemesis, Megan, and her least favorite boy in the school, the ever popular Anthony (who's got a bit of a crush...) are standing by, ready to put the "soulmates" to a test.

Hanging Cherry Blossoms by Emilia Burgandy reviews
“I love you, Nathan Caddoc Greene. I love you. We’re meant for each other, no matter what gets in our way. We’ll handle it when it comes. We’ll be ready,” I exclaimed. "And we'll have the garden to keep us together," Nate reminded me.

Songs for Polar Bears reviews
Kate's had her heart broken by her first "love," so where should a girl on the rebound go to drown her sorrows? Why, Dublin, of course! Join Kate, and her (new) best mate Serena as together, they navigate through the insanity of grad school, work, nights at the pub, and what else? Unrequited (and requited!) love.

Half the World Away reviews
Lyla's a southern girl who's been uprooted from her sunshine filled days in South Carolina to England. The view in England's not at all bad thanks to a boy who: is practically your soulmate, spends time with you oh, and is a sexy, brooding musician type!

Dani's trying to catch the eye of the adorable, shy guy while trying to avoid the fake affections of the boy with the bloated ego. Sadly, Mr. I Like Myself Too Much is proving harder to dodge as he sits right next to them in English class. UPDATED!

Time and Time Over Again reviews
Every girl knows how it is. A stupid, conceited though ridiculously good looking boy you're in love with takes advantage of you and breaks your heart...time and time over again. Read and review? I'll return the favor! Much obliged.

Saint Stephen reviews
I tried. Really. It's about this boy that I totally crushed on for a whole year and, well, like the poem/song, if you can call it that, my prayers for him to ask me out went unanswered because he was THAT oblivious and as always, I was too late. R&R?

Your Fantasy, Her, Not Me reviews
He's in love with a girl, and I thought that was me, and then he unceremoniously dumped me for his fantasy...his perfect girl. And that's never me. Song/poem type. Read and review? I'll return the favor.
