Author has written 4 stories for Fantasy, General, and Young Adult.
My name is Tarah.
It's nice to meet you.
If you're here, you've either read one of my stories (yeah... sorry about those) or maybe a link to my profile is on a forum of some sort (which is less likely).
sigh* I suppose I could tell you a few random facts about me just to sate your curiosity. ;)
I'm quite young.
I'm from Canada, eh? ;)
I love to sing, and I’m learning to play piano. You can find me on YouTube (Tarah Sawler).
I have a slight obsession with aromatherepy… well, it’s more complicated than that.
I love to learn about grammar rules.
All accents excite me.
I’m learning French, but I’m not quite bilingual... yet.
I honestly can’t use harsh words to describe someone or something.
I have been reading and writing braille ever since I turned two Y/A.
I have a DEADLY fear of butterflies, moths and every insect that buzzes, but spiders don’t bother me.
I hate almost every sport that involves a ball, a puck or endurance training. Yeah... Don't even ask. :/
I may or may not have a large ego, but I don’t like to talk about it. ;)
I'm not fond of nature/camping and etc, but I have four plants in my room to look after. Scented, of course.
Yep, that’s me in a nutshell. Pleasant, right? ;)
STORY STATICE UPDATES: (updated 12/1/13)
THE DESCENDANTS: As you may have heard, I'm re-doing this story. All the chapters are from 3000-6600 words, and I'm making lots of changes: A) I've split each one up so that they're about 1500 words on average (some are closer to 2300 and some are closer to 1,000) because the people who've voted on my polls say they prefer short chapters. B) I've asked for advice from my beta amai-chan1993 about how to make my story better. She gave me lots and lots of good advice, so I'm encorperating it into the shortened chapters. I haven't split up the long chapter that hasn't been posted yet, but I suspect there wil be about 24 or 25 chapters when I post the edited version of The Descendants! :) So far, I've edited/fixed up 10 chapters. I'll send them to my beta and post them when they come back to me. some of these ten chapters need more editing which I don't have time to do these days, so I'd say to expect a chapter in a few months or so.
..that is all...
2/22/13: I've become a beta for ProjectTeamBeta (PTB)! I'm under the same pen name there. I'd say to check me out, but the link will just lead you back to this account... Oops. Plus, my name won't show up in their lists for some reason.
8/13/13: I've just decided that I will be participating in NaNoWriMo (national novel writing month). Hopefully, the results will be my first completed novel! I remain cautiously optimistic. Those of you who know my regular updating schedule (psh... I don't have one) will scoff. Please be quiet. ;)
12/1/13: Two days ago, I won NaNoWriMo! I wrote 50,459 words during the first 29 days of November. This is the first novel I've finished. It will probably take a while to get it edited and ready for posting, but once I've got the majority of the chapters done I'll begin to post chapters on Fictionpress once a week.
Sorry for any spelling mistakes in here. Feel free to point them out to me. I love it when people do that! :)
Have a nice day,
