Hi, I love reading - typically stories with a bit of romance - and I like writing (even though my grammar is a tad bit horrific), but at this point I'm too big of a wuss to post anything. I wish I could write something witty or clever here but then that would imply that I actually am witty and clever, so I'll just stop while I'm ahead. :)
Anyways here is a bit about me...
Where Books/Stories are concerned:
-I despise the cliche love triangle... you know those stories where the lead character falls for some "special" person but some how or another gives some "other" character the idea that he/she might actually have a chance, just to end up with the "special" person at the end of the story. For some reason when I read these stories I always end up liking the "other" person more than the "special' person ,that the writer wants the readers to like, which means that I always end up pissed by the end of the book,lol. Now I hate these stories because they are soooo predictable but I can tolerate few (like some you will see in my favorites) if: A) The writer does a good job at not making it too painfully obvious who the lead character will end up with or B) If the plot is good enough then I can ignore the horribly predictable romance.
-If it isn't painfully obvious by now, I don't really care for cliches, but I can tolerate them if the writer does a good job at not making me feel like I'm reading something completely redundant
-I like stories to be fully developed... I can't stand when two characters fall in love by like chapter 3 of a story or when they fall in love after having only 2 conversations. So I guess you could say that I like my stories to be realistic.
-I prefer my main characters to be emotionally strong with a good dose of common sense. lol
-I detest when I can see right through all of the writer's strategies. Like when the main character asks themselves obvious questions throughout the whole story as a way to increase suspense or hint that a character might be intrigued. A writer is supposed to be invisible to the reader, the reader is supposed to forget that they are even reading a fictional story...or at least that's the way I see it.
-I also like fantasy, supernatural, mystery (historical/mystery), or science fiction type of stories... Oh and about 2 years ago I discovered a liking for slash/yaoi, although not so much these days.
Things that I live by:
-There is only ONE race, the human race
-It's okay to be color blind, but I hope that one day we can get to a place where we can see the color and try not to ignore the differences that seperate us, but instead, try to embrace them.
- An open mind is the key to a better society
-Observation can get u far in life
If I get a Tattoo it would say...
"Lord save me from myself" - my biggest hurdle in life will probably always be myself
-STEREOTYPES = In my opinion, they only hinder us back as a society and they encourage ignorance
- A narrow-minded individual
-When writers on fp can't update b/c of school-which is understandable- but then when summer hits, they only update like ONCE. lol ( but we've all got lives, so I get it...but cliff-hangers suck)
-When writers on fp can't take constructive criticism.
If you have any book or FP story suggestions, feel free to PM me!
Disclaimer: My favorites aren't always stories that I'd recommend. While a good portion are stories I really enjoyed, my fav list is more or less a collection of stories that I've either finished, or am in the process of finishing...my logic is if I can get through the story then it's a keeper :)
