Author has written 6 stories for Fantasy, Romance, Song, Love, and General.
I use to use this site back in high school, but when I went off to college I abruptly stopped due to my new hectic life. Now that I'm a bit older I want to get back into writing all of those stories that keep filling up my day dreams. I made a new account to hopefully fill it with things I feel reflect the "me" I am now. With any bit of luck some of you readers will discover something from here, even if its something so simple as momentary enjoyment.
To explain a bit about "the author": I am the youngest child of three, and the only girl. I had a fantastic father who loved to rally up the children of his family and tell outlandish fantasy or scifi stories with each child becoming a character in his stories. I spent my childhood in a loving make believe. Unfortunately, my father died well before his time. I like to think my love for all things fantasy is born from him, and maybe even a feeble attempt to keep him alive from some cherished memories.
I began to eat up any story containing unicorns or dragons in my youth, then slowly branching out to other fantastical journeys in Egypt or Greece. As I got older, I switched to the root of all the stories I loved so much; Mythology. I took a college course on it since it had interested me so much, and I already owned countless books on myths and folklore from varying cultures. College was where I learned about the deep ties of psychology and the unconscious behind mythology, and I became forever changed. I also listened to a lecture about applying mythology to your own story, and that old burning to write flared up in me again. Every story I read, heard, or thought about, I started thinking about and comparing to my own. I HAD to start doing this again, or the stories echoing in my head would drive me mad.
And now I ask for your help. If you read my stories I would love any feedback, be it negative or positive. If you start getting bored, where and why? If there is something that doesn't make sense? Tell me! I sincerely want to do this to the best of my ability, which may be small and weak, but this is a passion of mine and I will strive for it. I understand the value of another person's opinion, so if you leave feedback I will be more than happy to return the favor.
So please, and thank you for reading any of my work. Truly this is something that means the world to me.
I don't have a main focus right now, no individual story has lodged itself into my brain screaming for attention...
(02-08-2014) I apologize to anyone who had been waiting on my stories. I the last year I bounced between three jobs (working two at a time for awhile on multiple occasions) and then when my life finally looked like it started to be mine again, I got proposed to and the wedding ended up eating a LOT of my free time.
So once again, I am so, so sorry, but as an adult, hobbies like this end up low on the to-do list. :P
