: About Me :
I am an aspiring writer, researcher, and animal-lover; a girl in the 11th grade. I grew up in a Montessori private school, transitioned into homeschooling, and now go to a public high school. My life revolves around animals, creativity, FFA, and having fun. I find daily joy in simply caring for and learning about my many pets or wild creatures; I like to maintain plants, organize pet habitats, admire nature photography, read animal stories; anything creative, especially with living things. The balance of life is what inspires me to write, coincidentally. I like being able to create and/or manage something that is its own entity, whether that be a loving pet I can care for, a drawing I can admire, a fictional world I've conjured up, or a song that I find wonderful. It's also why I love to draw. Overall, the beauty of life inspires my two main hobbies, writing and drawing, but writing is my top love of the two.
I hope to achieve a career revolving around animals when I'm on my own one day. They are the most amazing, fascinating things to me. However, I'm not looking to become a professional in veterinary medicine (I dislike medical careers, personally.) or anything similar, although I like hands-on work with animals; I actually plan to become an animal geneticist or zoologist, knowing all there is to know about animals, doing research, and traveling to better understand the animal kingdom. I'd like to, one day, get a huge terrarium, (hundreds of gallons in size) and build a self-sustaining, yet manually balanced ecosystem of beautiful, hopefully friendly animals. I'd have it set up with water, land, and different heights and depths, as well as several species of coexisting animals. It would most likely be one of several vivaria, each with different biomes, such as desert and tropical. One might be full of snakes, while another has aquatic amphibians, fish, and turtles of all sorts (aquarium). I actually have sketch diaries and notebooks with pages dedicated for prototypes of possible vivariums I'd love to create and maintain!
I have had a countless number of animals in my life, including a mini-farm on 10 acres, my family's pet store, two occasions in breeding dogs, breeding horses, rehabilitating little wild animals, reptile conventions, and a whole lot more! I currently am maintaining a corn snake breeding program. I totally understand that some people have developed fears of snakes (and other animals), but in my opinion, don't claim that animals are your "life" if you only like the cute and cuddly (in fact, you're like the majority of the human species—most of us feel the need to show compassion for those animals). That's like saying you're a dedicated foster mother who only likes to show compassion towards the "cute" kids. We also have numerous other pets, including ball pythons, dogs, tortoises, rats, rabbits, bearded dragons, fish, and more, but I focus on breeding my snakes! Due to this background, I joined FFA during my freshman year. I am now our chapter's secretary, and—despite the worthwhile hard work—I love the organization more every day!
I love rock music. My favorite bands are Arctic Monkeys and Florence The Machine; I also love Paramore, and this is because they were the first band I ever liked. I used to dislike music entirely (I grew up around country music), until I heard Paramore when I was about 10 years old. Since then, there have been far too many bands and artists to list that I listen to as well. (Cage the Elephant, Icon For Hire, Zella Day, etc...) I like all types of music, though, including pop, classical, and really any genre as long as the song is good. I just don't listen to them frequently. I've noticed that the ones I like most are alternative rock, metal, scream, soft rock, anything else rock-related, and alternative music in general, all of which people often say they wouldn't expect me to like (considering I am soft-spoken and part of a "country" club).
I also like Scratch programming, which I am off-and-on with. Scratch is a form of basic programming, literally all about piecing together colored blocks to create a sequence of actions, ultimately producing a game, animation, or any type of project within its vast limits, basically. It's built for a person of any age, but specifically designed to be user-friendly and act as the first step for kids and hobbyists to learn about the basics of any programming. I recommend visiting my profile, though I am rarely active lately (but still active!). The link is below! I also sculpt/paint horses and other animals from time to time and experiment with creative ideas.
Please visit to see my finished games, animations, and more projects on Scratch. Visit https://www.fanfiction.net/dewleafwolf for my profile on FanFiction! When there's a good book, movie, or something similar, I often imagine a good twist of events in my head or perhaps what the characters would do in a different plot or in their everyday lives. I'm always reviewing FF stories, though I really don't finish possible fanfics. I did create an account, however, to interact with the website and have a username ready to post possible stories through! Go there to see the media I like fanfics of. Usually the characters mentioned there are the ones that I draw.
Thanks for reading my profile. I hope you enjoy my work!
: My Writing : (My work is fully made and owned by me. Please, do not steal anything of mine.)
In FictionPress, my level of activity online differs on what I'm doing in my life currently. Sometimes I'm posting a bunch of oneshot poems, and other times I'm focusing on my fun novels. Moreover, I frequently struggle with constant writer's block (I'm a perfectionist!), or I'm far too busy to sit down and write.
When I write, my goal is to create a piece that represents one of three categories that I currently feel like expressing: narrative adventure, descriptive scenery, and/or metaphorical philosophy. Therefore, as an example, a poem about unimaginable sadness is most likely going to be of the third writing group, as opposed to a fantasy novel falling under the first category. Read the content I've uploaded and you'll notice one of the three approaches being exercised; sometimes a story is a mixture of groups, other times each paragraph might differentiate. I like writing this way; it keeps me focused on the feelings I want to convey to the reader, whether I want to make them experience something vividly, help them live the tale, or make them rethink the meaning of life! Additionally, in poetry specifically, I usually decide if I want the flow to be short and catchy or long and fluent beforehand. As an example, The Amber Blur (a suggested poem) would be considered fluent, whilst A Snake in the Dark is shorter, its syllables rhyming identically in desired places, unlike the other poem. On a related note, I adore structured poetry as opposed to rhyming!
Another rule that I tend to follow is making the majority of my work teen rated or below. I'd like to think that I can make a good story that people of all ages can acknowledge and appreciate.
Lastly, I'd like to state that I take my writing seriously. I may not write the most serious of poetry or stories, but it's all as practice in the mindset that one day I'll be an excellent writer. Don't get my wrong—I'm definitely not there yet, but we have start somewhere, right? Not only that, but I love to write. It's something I'm not sure I could live comfortably without. I do write as a passionate hobby and outlet, and I have plans for a serious animal-related career when I'm older, but I hope that my writing skills will flourish and assist me in life. I'm not asking to become a legendary author, but it's definitely my goal to become well-known for something!
