Author has written 5 stories for Action, Young Adult, General, Family, and Friendship.

To sum things up, I am a teenage girl who suffers from a severe case of writer's-block syndrome. I have plenty of ideas, but structure seems to be an issue. That's why I joined this site!

I've written a couple of fanfictions for the past few years (Harry Potter, heehee) and have finally decided to take my own stories for a spin. I'd really like to strengthen my writing--there's this one story that I've been trying to write since I was SIX, so I am determined to eventually get it down. When I do, I'll let you guys know!

The books that I read play a major role in how I write. Here are some of my favorite books and why I like them:

Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling (about nine times, XD, it's just so AMAZING)

The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien (I haven't finished the LotR series, but I am completely in love with The Hobbit)

The Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth (I really like this idea of five factions, but I still don't know which one I would be in!)

The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins (even though I absolutely HATED the last book)

Speak by Laurie Halse-Anderson (kind of an adult theme, but the main character's way of narrating things is amazing)

Reckless by Cornelia Funke (very well-written...she uses so much imagery that it feels like you're actually THERE)

Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan (it's just such a unique idea that he used, and I love how he gave mythology a modern twist)

Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan (same thing with "modern mythology," plus this had the first ever love triangle that I thought was actually decent)

...and more :P

I have plenty of inspiration. Some of it comes from pictures, conversations, anecdotes, or even everyday objects. All I have to do is get it down on paper. :)

Notice: I have a story called "The Visitor." It was originally titled "The Mage Chronicles, Book One," but due to the fact that I have other stories that are on other sites and in dire need of updating...I need to work on those first and have turned Mage Chronicles into a one-shot... Thanks to ReaderRabbit for the review, though! :)

Some other stuff you should know about me...

1.) I love drawing, especially paradoxes

2.) I am obsessed with the family trees of fictional characters and have at least five hanging on my wall right now

3.) I despise Twilight with every ounce of my being (no offense to anyone who likes it) and Edward Cullen was cooler as a Hufflepuff

4.) I am a somewhat overprotective older sister :P (see "I'll Make Them Sorry" in my stories below)

5.) I am convinced that the government is trying to hide that I was supposed to go to Hogwarts.

Yeah...I'm random.

Edit: I also had a story called "Surviving Eighth Grade for Dummies" that I deleted. I'm sorry to anybody who liked it, I just feel as if I could be doing a lot better with my writing. Honestly, I hadn't been satisfied with the characters, plot, dialogue, or pretty much anything ever since chapter two. So thank you to everyone who reviewed, but I will not be continuing with it.

Hiatus!
