- Perhaps when we find ourselves wanting everything, it is because we are dangerously close to wanting nothing.-
I'm Vicky and I love writing stories. So one day I hope to be a writer, and you never know, maybe it could happen... But for now I'll stick to writing overly long chapters that drag on a lot and then posting them on fictionpress :) Please read and review, even if it is a criticism/ flame or just one word. I'm happy for anything and I always return reviews (I will review your work back) and I try to make my reviews as detailed as possible. If you have a particular story you would like me to look at, please let me know. I love reading your stories! I really appreciate criticism, and it's always extremely helpful to me, so if you review my story, please don't be afraid to tell me exactly what you think of it.
Update 25/10/13: The Mute and The Liar won Round 13's Most Creative Plot SKOW award! Thank you so much everyone who nominated and voted! I do not know what I would do without your incredible support!
Update 2/11/13: The Mute and The Liar has been featured on Project Fiction! Again, thank you everyone for all your support. You are unbelievable!
A Little Birdie Told Me:
I had another story on here "A Little Birdie Told Me" and I finished it, and it was amazing how much support it got. I have some news: it got published! Yay! I still can't believe it. It is now available to buy on Amazon, Kindle, Foyles' and in Waterstones. Just Google 'A Little Birdie Told Me Victoria Best.' Just a bit of shameless advertising, but it would mean the world to me if you could even just press the thumbs up next to the story to give it a 'like.' It's just a simple romantic comedy, but it touches upon more serious themes such as neglect and bereavement.
For any stalkers out there:
I am a huge fidget and can't sit still for more than a few minutes.
My eyes change colour (don't ask.)
I am fluent in four languages - English, Bulgarian, Spanish and Sarcasm.
At age fifteen I started studying creative writing at the Open University.
My favourite authors range but for now my favourites are JK Rowling, Jean-Paul Sartre, Sylvia Plath, Ernest Hemmingway, Kazuo Ishiguro, Paulo Coelho, Chekhov, John Osborne, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, John Milton, Phillip Larkin, Margaret Atwood and Jane Austen. I'm also a bit boring and like reading writing guides.
Writing and reading.
Using posh words to make me sound clever.
Probably every anime out there.
That foamy stuff when you pour yourself a glass of cola.
Having deep, philosophical conversations about morality and existentialism with my cat.
Having no internet.
When the only pen I have runs out.
The Mute and The Liar. A thriller/ mystery drama of sorts under the guise of a romance.
Alicia Lewis is a nearly-sixteen-year-old selective mute with a talent for supposedly "solving mysteries" who strongly believes she has the world solved and sorted. Her perfectly lonely life is shattered when, out of nowhere, the ringleader of a youth gang breaks into her house and kidnaps her, forcing her into his vibrant, unpredictable world of impulsiveness, danger and destruction. He's a troubled genius: psychopathic, dangerous, and sometimes even terrifying.
The ultimatum for her freedom? For her father, a detective chief inspector, to murder a certain shadowed woman.
It truly is the ultimate language barrier when the girl who lives a life of secrets meets the boy who lives a life of lies.
Expect: mysteries, twists, disturbing scenes, philosophical musings, a lack of dialogue but emphasis on movement and body language and a healthy dose of cacti.
Don't expect: fluffy romance scenes, steamy romance scenes, grating cliches, beautiful characters with perfect lives and happy endings galore.
Thank you so much for all the support. Keep writing and following your dreams! :D
