Please, whatever you do, review! I don't care what you have to say--good or bad, constructive or not, commentary or predictions, ANYTHING--just say it!!!! If you read them, please please PLEASE review what you read. You have no idea how much it means to me--or any author I would imagine--to get feedback. I mean, how many of us hate to see 100 hits, 30 visitors, and 0 reviews for the month???? Am I right? Please review!!! I BEG of you: Whatever you do, pleaaaaassssssseeeeeee REVIEW!!!


If anyone is interested, I have a fanfiction account. They're all fiction prose pieces, no poetry, and they're all Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys pieces. Please feel free to check into them if you'd like. It would be very encouraging. =-) The link is below. Thanks!

A MESSAGE TO READERS:

What you call being 'too lazy to review' is what we call 'a flame to the pages' as the writers. That one minute or two that you felt 'too lazy' to review is another minute of creeping discouragement that all writers feel as they begin to think...

"Why am I even here…?"

"What's even the point of continuing?"

"My skills must be terrible…"

"No one cares for my story…"

"I'll never be a good writer..."

"I quit."

These are only a few thoughts that go through every writer's head- that go through MY head- when we put out a chapter/story with all our heart and soul within, and we sit there…and sit…and wait…and not a single person says even a word.

If you're not a writer, you have NO IDEA how much that hurts…

If you ARE a writer, then I'm sure you know just how great it feels when someone is kind enough to leave a heartwarming and encouraging review, and you read it, smiling while thinking…'Wow…I did it…'

So, why not give fellow writers the same luxury here?

Too many times I've seen epic and utterly beautiful works of literary art fall to pieces before finally being abandoned due to the terrible discouragement that the lack of reviews can cause.

Sometimes, it is so severe that the very writer himself decides to quit, denying the world his skills of writing that I'm quite sure others would have deeply enjoyed.

So…

Just one minute, that's all it takes. Just a few gentle taps of the fingers on your keyboard, a few seconds or so of your time, and your words can SAVE a writer from a dark demise.

Do me a favor: Go find a story, ANY story, anywhere here on Fictionpress, and see if you can help it. If it has very little/no reviews at all, just check it out, and say whatever comes to mind.

And enjoy the thought in mind that you could have just SAVED that story, with just a few taps of the keyboard.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Gender: Girl

Age: Old enough.

Home: America, the beautiful...or what it used to be, what it stands for.

Fandom Favs.: The one, the only... NANCY DREW AND THE HARDY BOYS!!!!! but I'm hoping to have time to swim around in a few others too...

My Fandoms: ND and the HB, of course! Maybe one day I'll stretch out?

Genres Typically Used: Drama, Romance, Mystery, Adventure, and I'm beginning to play around with Suspence a little bit too (not neccessarily in that order)

Ratings: K, K plus, occasionally T. It'll never go higher, that's just me...

Fav. T.V. Shows: I am newly addicted to Castle, thanks to sassyk100!! I also enjoy shows like Victorious and Hannah Montana. I LOVE MacGyver and the old X-Files and old cartoons like The Fairly Odd Parents, Danny Phantom, CatDog, Strawberry Shortcake (original and the first remake wasn't too horrid), Doug, and Teen Titans (the old ones, not the new ones) and Scooby Doo, etc. I like to watch the good shows that they used to play on T.V. I feel for the kids who grow up with...Ant Farm? Seriously dude? What happened to Even Stevens and Kim Possible, Red Skelton and The Dick Van Dyke Show and stuff like that???

Fav. Movies: Huh, funny. Do you really want the list? Okay...MALEFICENT! The Princess Bride, Willow, Signs, Lady in the Water (pretty much ANYTHING by M. Night), Pride and Prejuidce, Sense and Sensibilaty, The Blues Brothers (both of them), Anastasia, Ratatouie (hope I spelled that right...), Enchanted, QUEST FOR CAMELOT!!!!, The First Knight, The Lake House, The Magical Legend of the Lepreacauns (sp?), any Disney Princess movie, TinkerBell, and Barbie Princess movie (Yes), um...should I go on? I'm really getting into all the new superhero movies. The Die Hard series is classic, the Pirates of the Caribbean movies were really good, the Italian Job, and so so so many more!!

Fav. Books: Right, like I'm actually gonna pick a fav.

Okay, so I do have one from my top pick list, AND IT'S JUST BEEN PUBLISHED AS AN E-BOOK!!!!! It used to be called The Singing Sword, but the name has officially been chanced to New Birth. It's Book One of The Saga of the Singing Sword Brigade. Please help support the indie author! I swear you'll not regret it!

Other of my favorites are: I'm newly hooked into the Maximum Ride books, so I can't wait to see where that goes. I LOVED the Lost Voices trilogy. I enjoyed the Ruby Red series, The Selection series, The Merchant's Daughter, The Fairest Beauty, The Healer's Apprentice, Princess of the Midnight Ball, Princess of Glass, Princess of the Silver Woods, Pride and Prejudice (who would have guessed); Little Women; the Alex Rider series; anything by Margaret Peterson Haddix--such as the Shadow Children Series, the Missing Series, Just Ella, Turnabout, Double Identity, etc--Shannon Hale--like The Books of Bayern (the Goose Girl, Enna, River Secrets, and Forest Born), Austenland, and Palace of Stone--Terri Blackstock--like her Restoration Series!!!!!!!! Last Light, Night Light, True Light, and Dawn's Light--or Gail Carson Levine--like Ella Enchanted, The Two Princesses of Bamarre, and Fairest; Eragon; Eldest; Brisinger; Inheritance; Inkheart; Inkspell; Song of the Sparrow; The Boxcar Children Series; the Baily School Kids series; the Trailblazer series; oh, yeah, and NANCY DREW; and THE HARDY BOYS; and THE NANCY DREW AND THE HARDY BOYS SUPERMYSTERIES!!!!

Odds and Ends:

I love to cook and try out new dishes. I've got some pretty good family recipes if I may say so myself, so shoot me a pm and we can swap recipes!

My 4 closest friends have never met each other and they each live at least 6 hours apart from each other. Three of them have the same first initial. Two of them have the same middle name and birth month (5 days apart!). Two of them are on Fanfiction and Fictionpress. One of them lives in another country.

I'm constantly bugged my story plots running through my mind. Oh, but my dad got me a cool green journal that I write them down in, when I bother to remember.

My favorite color is GREEN!! Blue runs in close second, but it depends on the shade. Oh, I love colors! It's so hard to choose favorites...except for greeeeeeeeennnnnnnnn! I love mixing colors, like Indigo and Blue Violet! That's a pretty color! I love to color in coloring books full of princesses and fairies and Barbies. (Yes, I am in college and I still color little girl coloring books. Get over it. ;-))

What's Your:

Bedtime: Usually by ten if I can help it. I won't stay up past twelve unless the sky is falling. I just won't.

Most Missed Memory: MAC AND CHEESE WITH KASI!!!!!! Man what a moment that was...

First Thought Waking Up: Who's shinning that light in my eyes? Ohhhh, where did the sweet night go...?

Goal For This Year: Uh, finish Chester, Rostel, and Relina, the beginnig anyway... (this has been here for like...ever...still here)

Fears: Snakes, spiders (have you SEEN the movie Aracnaphobia?????), mice, creepy crawlies in the night!!!! Public speaking, for sure, anything to do with many people really.

Longest Relationship: Okay, here's a shocker: never been in a romantic relationship...ever...

Nickname: I have multiple, and I still instinctively reply to all of them:

Corky -by my Aunt V. (thus the Corkybookworm ;-D)

Coya -by my Aunt T.

Coodie Coo -by my Gma N. and Gpa T.

Missy Lie Loo/ Sissy Lie Loo/Missy Loo -by my mom

Sissy -by my sister and one of my younger brothers


I have four of the most awesome best friends in the entire world, and I love you guys will all my heart. So this one's for Kels, Sassyk100, D. G. Weber, and Kase:

FRIENDS vs. BEST FRIENDS

FRIENDS: Never ask for food.
BEST FRIENDS: Are the reason you have no food.

FRIENDS: Call your parents Mr / Mrs
BEST FRIENDS: Call your parents DAD/MOM

FRIENDS: Never seen you cry
BEST FRIENDS: Cry with you

FRIENDS: Borrow your stuff for a few days then give it back
BEST FRIENDS: Keep your stuff so long they forget it's yours

FRIENDS: Know a few things about you
BEST FRIENDS: Could write a book about you with direct quotes
from you

FRIENDS: Will leave you behind if that is what the crowd is doing
BEST FRIENDS: Will kick the whole crowds butt that left you

FRIENDS: Would knock on your front door
BEST FRIENDS: Walk right in and say 'I'M HOME!'

FRIENDS: Are for awhile
BEST FRIENDS: Are for life

FRIENDS: Will talk bad to the person who talks bad about you.
BEST FRIENDS: Will knock the person out that talked bad about you

FRIENDS: Would ignore this
BEST FRIENDS: Will send this to all their real friends and hope
to get it back!

If you were killed today, I'm sorry I wouldn't be able to come to your
funeral, because I'd be in jail for killing the person who did it.

I wanted to let you know that I love you to death & think you
are amazing!


Not that I believe anything bad will happen to me if I don't, but hey why not? Honestly, I don't interpret that verse as meaning "if you don't post this, you're going to the pits!" I really think God could care less what happens in our little internet lives, whether we post this or not. Don't get me wrong, that doesn't mean to trash Him or His ways and then turn around and claim that you're an honest Christian. You've got to live in Christ, but that doens't mean you have to re-post every "I believe!!!" that you come across.

Did you know that 98% of teenagers will not stand up for God, and 93% of the people that read this won’t repost it?

Jesus had no servants, yet they called him Master...

He had no degree, yet they called him Teacher...

He had no medicine, yet they called him Healer...

He had no army, yet kings feared him...

He won no military battles, yet he conquered the world...

He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him...

He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today

Feel honored to serve such a leader who loves us...

If you believe in the God, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost

then copy and paste this in your profile


6 Truths of Life

1. You cannot touch all of your teeth with your tongue

2. All idiots after reading this will try it

3. The first truth is a lie.

4. You are now laughing at your own stupidity

5. You will put this on your profile

6. You still have a stupid smile on your face


The Review Revolution...

Even if the fic has 10,002,464 reviews already...

Even if the fic is older than time itself...

Even if it was abandoned a loooooooooooooooooooooong time ago...

Even if the author turned out to be a total psychopath...

Even if the OC is a Sue and the spelling would make a dictionary cry...

I will review every fic I read. What goes around comes around, and maybe more people will review my own fics. I have joined Review Revolution.

Short Story. The "final" draft is presented, though I still feel that it isn't it's complete. The main theme of the "story" is more about the scene than the characters within it. I started it while staying at Myrtle Beach with my grandparents, but just now "finished" it as an assignment in my totally awesome Creative Writing class. It's about making mistakes and finding home.

My First Love, Because of You reviews
This poem was written for two of my best friends who both went through nearly the exact same thing with their boyfriends...well, ex-boyfriends. It's another inspired poem of mine. Please review!

Devoid of Hope reviews
This is probably one of the weirdest poems I have. I wrote it for my best friend. I love her with all my heart and she was going through a particularly difficult time when I wrote this one.

The Unconquered Champion reviews
This poem was written for a guy that I have a super crush on, but he doesn't like me...as far as I can tell. Same guy as Midnight Crush and I Shed My Tears. Anyway, it's strange for sure, but there's no telling how awake I was or wasn't when I wrote it!

In the Dark reviews
Honestly, History would be a more appropriate category, but it's unavailable. I wrote this poem for Extra Credit in one of my classes. It's dedicated to Helen Keller and her teacher Anne Sullivan. She's one of my favorite people to read about and learn from. Helen Keller was an amazing woman.

I Shed My Tears reviews
This is a poem I was inspired to write about the same guy from Midnight Crush. It's again one of those things that I will probably be the only one to fully understand, but what do you think? It only hints at romance, mostly a developing friendship thing.

Midnight Crush reviews
Poem I wrote one night- about Midnight. I was extreemly tired and kinda out of it, but the poem came out nonetheless. It's about how unreasonably shy I am and this guy that I have a major crush on. Most of it only I can fully appriciate, but what do you think?

For the Pain and Sorrow reviews
Initially inspired by my uncle. He and his wife had tried for several years to have a child of their own. They've been through miscarriages and stillborns, and now have 2 healthy boys. This isn't about their experiences, but it was inspired by their pain.

Shadow of Light reviews
One of my more recent "inspired poems". I wrote it one day at school. I had been toying with the idea of a 'Shadow of Light' for a few days when one day at school it suddenly hit me...hard. So this one is for a teacher of mine that was having a hard day.

Angels In the Creases of the Clouds reviews
This is one of the poems that I call my "inspired poems". I call them that because I write them spur of the moment. This one was based on what my dad once said to me when I was younger.

I had to write an ode for Spanish THIS IS THE ENGLISH VERSION! so I just rearranged "Rain" to look like an ode. It's basically the same thing, but with a different name.
