I end up writing a lot in my car. I park in some parking lot and eat my breakfast. Then I write for about an hour and then I go to work. It's the hardest and the easiest part of my day. :-D

My profile pic? I'm kind of obsessed with eyewear for now...for whatever reason...

Just so I remember for myself:

Okay. Just a couple of things. ^_^

1) Please do not edit my works for spelling or grammar. Thanks!

2) I am so sorry people, but I no longer take read requests. Any requests left anywhere on my pages will be quickly deleted. Again, I am so sorry about that. Thank you for paying attention to this. :-)

I thank you guys so much for following! ^_^ You're the best!! Oh I'm so sorry, but I...uh...I don't do the...the 'follow back' thing. Sorry! :P


Writing is like bleeding.
I can only do a little bit at a time. It's very painful.
I do a little, and then I rest.
I do a little, and then I rest, again.
Eventually what takes shape is a smaller version of me, but still every bit me,
because at its most basic--it is me.
This other version of me, this littler one, unlike the real version of me

will live forever.


I would like to show my special gratitude to @audreymei, as she has read every last little word that I've posted on wattpad so far! ^_^ Thank you!

And as always, thanks to Cantabile for all eternity for all of her marvelous covers.

I absolutely love your description. And about the bleeding... That parallel was beautiful and so free formed. It's something that makes so much sense, but I wouldn't have thought of. ^_^ I can't wait to check out some of your works!
