I know, I know. I've been gone a while. Getting a college degree will do that to you.

Hi. I'm Karrah.
I'm in college. I've been writing since I was in first grade. Yes, that's a long time.
I'm abnormally not tall, and abnormally not fat. I'm not someone you would notice on the street.
I have a black belt in Taekwondo. I've never had to use it. Secretly I wish I could.
I keep to myself. I hate crowds. Too many people for too long makes me cranky.
Music is second only to writing in my life. But only because I'm a terrible musician.
I've been called nuts. I believe it to be true.
I will never look at the world as everyone else does.

I despise:
~~bad spellers, people who cannot use proper grammar, and those that have a blatant disregard for the English language. Spell Check is not a new invention people.
~~stories where the main character wears skinny jeans and converse, has black hair, is unpopular, and lives off Indie Rock. It's been done again and again. And again. Move on.
~~people who will cast something or someone out of favor simply because it/he/she does not appeal to them. One should be able to recognize the validity of something even if one doesn't like it. I don't like Shakespeare, but I recognize his brilliancy as a playwright. I don't care for Rap, but I recognize its validity as a musical genre and art form.
~~authors on FP who won't reveal their age. Just a general idea would be a big help. You can't critique a 13 year-old in the same way as a 24 year-old.

I love:
~~reading stories with well developed characters. Characters that grow and learn something in the story are my favorite.
~~stories about normal people. Girls that wear old jeans and t-shirts, aspire to be doctors, aren't popular or unpopular and don't have a boyfriend because they're shy. Boys that wear basketball shorts and t-shirts, play guitar, aren't popular or unpopular and are in love with their best friend who happens to be a girl.
~~people that are intellectual and unpretentious. If you're intellectual, people will notice. You shouldn't have to cop attitude.
~~authors on FP who leave legitimate reviews with places to improve and things to work on.


I know I had a lot of stuff on here before, but I'm trying to get back to working on one piece at a time. I ended up finishing Tweaked over winter break, so I figured I might as well share it on here. I'm in the process of doing some serious reworking, which I might post or I might not. It depends on whether I decide to try to publish it or not. Anyway, there you go.

The Rules of Engagement by judevanderhall reviews
She's a bleeding heart liberal. He's a jaded Marine. She's the best friend. He's the older brother. She's middle class. He's loaded. And they're sharing the same address. Painfully cliché? You have no idea. SKoW Winner and Runner-up, Round 8.

Sleeping with the Enemy by Penelope P reviews
We were supposed to get married. That was the deal. Things change though. People change. I found myself falling in love, but not with the right person, or maybe he never was the right person to begin with. SERIOUS EDIT IN PROGRESS!
