1. What are three things you've accomplished as a writer?

:bulletpurple: Wrote for a city newspaper.

During the year 2009 I wrote a column for my city's newspaper. In the end I was awarded a plaque & a scholarship for my hard work. :heart:

:bulletpurple: Published a poem in High School.

I published my poem Dreaming Ends in a Texas series by Pine Tree Publications. It featured talented young writers. :blush:

:bulletpurple: Received a Daily Deviation.

I recieved a DD for my poem Submerged In Swan Lake recently. I'm very self-concious about my poetry - so this was quite the achievment for me. :nuu:

2. Here's a piece by me:

The Bride of Atlas

And here's a piece I admire:

Fisherman's Blues by `KathrynODriscoll

3. A question for you:

What do you think about Prologues? Are they necessary, or pointless?

Depends on the content for the prologue, I think.

What do you record your writing with the most?

A pencil and paper. I have problems with trying to write on a computer--I can do it if I absolutely have to, but there's something cathartic about the scratch of lead across paper that I just can't seem to give up. I have two huge binders and a dozen different notebooks filled with stuff I've written since the sixth grade; it's fun to be able to go back and read over what I wrote back then and compare it to what I'm writing today. :heart:

From my gallery: Phoenix Songs

From someone else's gallery: knock knock.

Question for you: If you could write about one thing without fear of others' reactions or of sounding cliche, what would it be and why?

Hmm. I can't think of anything for your question at the moment. I will come back to it if and when I do. :)

Who would you want to pass on all of your writing experience to if you could?

My sister. I want her to be able to experience writing like I can.

My piece: [link]

Someone else's piece: [link]

My question: What is one place you would go if you could?

Are we talking real places, or anywhere at all in the world?

If we're talking real, I'd say....I'd love to visit a star, especially the shooting ones. ;)

If we're talking anywhere at all....I really don't know if I could decide on just one! Anywhere with faeries and unicorns, I guess. :shrug:
