Author has written 34 stories for Life, Friendship, Love, and Nature.

I'm Leila.

22.

I used to be her and her. I've changed a lot since then.

my eljay is dead. my fanfics are dead. my muse is vacationing, but still writes home sometimes.

I write because I have to, not because I want to. But that doesn't mean that I don't want to, necessarily.

I like semicolons, dashes, and strange sentence structures.

I dislike arrogance, compliment-fishing, coconut, mangoes, and the color brown.

I love God, post-it notes, Disney, dresses, books, children, flowers, and love.

I am ridiculously optimistic and intense and perhaps a bit on the frightening side.

I live in extremes, love almost everyone I know, and survive each day only because of my faith, friends, and coffee pot.

The ring finger of my left hand is now permanently occupied :)

true story.

A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly.
You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth
and a double chin and stick-out teeth,
but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams
and you will always look lovely.

(Roald Dahl)

news...ish.

02.04.14

O_O

It has been forever. And I mean FOREVER!

I've been busy.

One thing that has kept me busy: getting married!

As of May 19th, 2012, I am off the market for good _

I hope to be writing again soon. Have had a few little scribbles...

We'll see where they go.

if you read something,

please review, even if it's just
"I liked it," or "jolly ranchers!" or "asjudfrhuieh37y47yfbsjh."

it's just nice to know someone is out there, you know?

all it takes is a minute and a few random words (or letters!) :)

(and I return reviews. because that's the polite thing to do.)

also.

if you read anything,
I suggest spoonful of sugar or
blinded or lupus.

but those are just three of my personal loves.
