Hello there! This is LateNightTurtle, also known as Diana.
First Big Announcement: All of my old stories have been deleted from my profile. I'm sorry if you were a fan and came back occasionally for a quick read, but knowing I would never continue any of those stories, that they would just be sitting there lonely and unfinished, I couldn't handle looking at them any long. Not to mention I've also grown up quite a bit and my writing has changed. It hasn't changed drastically, but has changed enough to show I've matured. My old works were very sloppily put together and I wrote each chapter blindly, having no real idea where the stories were ever going to end up. And that is NOT how I write anymore.
Second Big Announcement: In my stories, I also completely focused on gay and lesbian couples. In high school I was completely surrounded by people who were either gay or bisexual and/or were people who enjoyed reading gay/lesbian stories. Don't get me wrong, it was my own slight obsession with gay/lesbian couples that inspired those stories, but I was also always heavily encouraged by my friends to always write gay/lesbian stories. I felt as if I had to always make my stories the way they wished and didn't have much of a say in the stories myself. I'm not saying I'll never write a gay short story or novel again, but right now I want to focus on stories that I really want to write. I suppose this would tie in well with why I would never finish the stories I started. My motivation was never there because I was writing what others wanted me to write and not what I was genuinely interested in.
Third Big Announcement: I'm ready to get back into writing and posting again. My profile is going to be completely different now. My old followers may no longer be interested in what I have to write anymore simply because of that fact, but I'm not going to be posting stories just to get a famous profile. I will be posting for anyone who cares to take a look at what I have to offer, and if I earn a follower or two, I'll just be happy that people are enjoying it.

Gray Haven: Grayson Barre got a call while sitting in his Freshman English class. When he answered it, the man on the other end told him that his father had been murdered and that his mother was in severe condition. She died a few hours later while he was waiting in the hospital. Now, three years later, he is a nervous recluse that just wants to have a happy life. And for a while he thought he had one, being with his current foster parents for almost two years. But when a mass shooting happens a few blocks from where he lives, the Little Darlings Agency yanked him out of the one place he considered home.
Now Grayson lives in a perfect, albeit tiny, town called Sydney Lush, where people's lives seem to be filled with more drama and mystery than his own. Everybody knows everyone else's business, and his new foster parents, the Kimballs, aren't an exception. They know something about his parents' murder that he doesn't. All the while, he meets the beautiful Alena Pennington, who is a mystery all her own. Both have haunting pasts that seemed to have left them permanently wounded in their own ways, but together they try to learn to trust, and maybe even love, again. After all, he's going to need a little help and support while trying to discover the truth of his parents' deaths.
- About Me/What's Happening in My Life -
My name is Diana. I am 19, soon to be 20. I love Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, reading and writing, and listening to lovely acoustic music and movie soundtracks when I write. When I'm not writing, I'm playing Minecraft. I occasionally upload videos of me playing Minecraft (oh god, how embarrassing) just as a hobby. I've been getting pretty into video editing as well these days, but it'll NEVER replace writing. That'll always be my #1 favorite thing to do.
My favorite color is green, my favorite food is spaghetti, I love cats a little more than dogs, and I memorize the lyrics of ever single song I like. I can sing over a thousand songs by heart. I wish I were kidding.
Right now my main focus is just making stories and hopefully getting them published. I'd like to write another story at the same time I'm writing Gray Haven, but knowing my brain, I would definitely mix up details and mess up at some point in the stories. The problem is I have about 4 other story ideas lined up behind this one, so I'm just so eager to write ALL of them!
I'm not in school. Don't know if I will ever go to college. People keep telling me I need to if I want to get anywhere these days, and they make a good point, but I'd at least love to pump out a few books before I decide if I need to go to college or not.
Welp, I think that's about it for me! Thanks for reading!
