About the author:

I'm a 22 and Pittsburgh proud.

I read just about constantly. Well, I used to. College has kind of slowed that down for now- I can only bring along so many of the easily-over-a-thousand books that my family owns.

Writing- now that, I still do. Less than I would like (at least for fun, I have more than enough writing to do for classes) but I love it. I'm almost constantly making up some kind of story in my head, even though it may never get written down. I have been known to abruptly pull out my phone and type ideas in a blank message so I remember to transfer them to my Stuff That May Go Into Stories Someday list when I get back to my computer.

If I've got writer's block- which doesn't happen often, thankfully- I turn into a very rotten person until I start hating myself enough to get unstuck.

I like a great variety of music and books.

I love thunderstorms, rushing water, heights, and wooded trails.

"I'm an English major" (even though I have the degree now) explains a lot about me:
"I read somewhere..." is pretty much my catchphrase.
I tend to use "impressive" words, and only realize this after the fact.
I pretty much collect notebooks; I have a giant bin of as-yet-unused ones.
I also collect quotes, both inspirational/"deep" ones, and funny ones
I love Papermate Inkjoys, and of course I adore my new fountain pen.
I spend way too much time on TVTtropes, and Write or Die by Dr Wicked has almost saved my life several times.
I've always hated true/false tests, I'd much rather explain the whole thing in a short-answer or essay, and then you'll know I know what I'm talking about!

I've kept a journal for over twelve years now- it fills 29 spiral notebooks so far.

I laugh easily, cry easily, and hate getting into arguments.

I've been writing since I could pick up a pen (pencil, then), and I don't plan on stopping any time soon.

Reviews are appreciated!

Sisterhood in a story summary means it's one of the ones about Caitey, Lizzie, and Michelle. The stories really don't have much to do with each other, so they can all be read on their own. The only connection is that they're all based on/inspired by things that happened to me and my sisters.

Imagination is a whole bunch of stories about Jamie and her sisters/cousins/various random people playing out stories they make up. The chapters aren't really such- they can be read individually, I just didn't see a point in posting them all separately.

If I Lead was meant to be part of a four-part series, but I got distracted and kind of gave up on it. I may write the rest just for fun someday. This applies to Run!, also.

Also, characters in a bunch of my stories- especially the high school ones- overlap. Characters in some are background characters in others. This is partly because it's realistic (since all the stories take place in the same area...fictional school districts which I think are somewhere on the east coast) and partly because I'm lazy. :-J

Story by Aaronak
Keep reading if the first part's not up your alley. It gets better. It's my first story. And Story is the title. I know the title's not all that interesting. Who said life was interesting?

Unreal reviews
He hadn't actually been driving drunk. Hadn't actually crashed the car. True, she was in an ambulance, but when the monitor started to flatline she wasn't actually dying. She tried to handle it professionally, but she knew it was much closer to reality than it may have seemed.

The Right Words
Sure, as a writer sometimes I have a hard time coming up with the right words, but this time I should know what the right words were. Maybe it was the pressure that was messing with my memory, or maybe it was the thought of who I was talking to...
