Hey there! My name is Victoria. Writing and literature have always been my most difficult classes so it surprises me that I have developed loves for reading and writing.

My love for reading started a few years ago when I randomly had the urge to pick up a book instead of watch TV, or something that I used to always do. Since then, my book collection has grown exponentially- though still substantially small, compared to collections that I’m sure are out there, and narrow-focused. I haven’t outgrown teen novels. My favorites are paranormal romance, adventure, real life issues, and those cute little romances. Now I’m also interested in post-apocalyptic stories and historical fiction/romance- specifically anything about Henry VIII and his court.

When I was younger, I remember briefly keeping a diary. I’d started when I was a young girl with a fancy diary I had picked up in the toy aisle with the little lock and key. Oh, so secretive. I outgrew that phase and stopped recording my life as I found other things to occupy my time. Then when I was an angst-y preteen going through puberty, I kept a diary to try to figure out my emotions. Eventually, I became paranoid that my parents would look through it because of how strong my emotions were. So that’s how I outgrew that phase. Then, I started dating and kept a diary of my relationships. But they ended so quickly it wasn’t worth spending so much time obsessing over them. Plus, I knew that when I was older, I’d never want to read them ever again.

That’s been my problem with writing, in general. Once I wrote something, I never wanted to look at it again, especially papers that I wrote for school. After my teacher graded it and handed it back, I couldn’t look through it at her comments. I felt almost embarrassed even though my grade was decent.

So writing stories is new to me. It started the same way as my love for reading. I had read through so many books that I thought to myself, hey, I can come up with stories too! So one day, the idea for my story, Once Upon a Time, got stuck in my head. And over the summer of 2012 I just cranked out my entire idea. Since then, I’d edit, and edit, every time I read over my work, but I never let anyone else read it.

At the end of December 2012, my friend told me about FictionPress and challenged me to publish my story. I was apprehensive because no one, absolutely no one, lays eyes on my work. But I tried it out. Now I’m addicted to the attention, albeit very little, and to the online community in general. This is a new atmosphere to me, and I’m really enjoying it.

Once Upon a Time reviews
Sarah wants to give up on love forever. Even still, she can't help but be jealous of her friends who have found love so easily. But when her friends' relationships begin to show serious signs of struggle, coincidentally after she wrote her own versions of fairy tales, it's up to Sarah to mend the relationships by restoring the fairy tales they so closely resemble.
