I am a Christian, and I believe that Jesus Christ is my lord and savior, that he died on the cross for my and all of humanities sins, and that he rose again three days later, and ascended into heaven, and that he will one day come back for all who believe in him and have accepted him into their hearts. I love him with all my heart. If it weren't for him, I would be a much worse person than I am. He has truly saved me, and he can save you too. I don't mean to preach, but this is very close to my heart. If I've offended anyone, I'm sorry, but I won't apologize for what I believe in.
I tried to do Nano last year, and failed miserably. I really think this is the year for me though! :) I don't really have a lot to say about myself, but I enjoy music, probably more than anyone really should. I have been doing musical theater for the past almost seven years and have loved every single moment of it. I am in my fourth year of marching band, and play the clarinet. I got into writing kind of late in the game (freshman year), and am infinitely more comfortable writing poetry than I am writing prose. I can proudly say I have a poem published in a poetry anthology available on Barnes and Nobles website. I write Les Miserables and Sherlock Holmes/BBC Sherlock fanfiction. It is not fantastic, but if you are interested in reading it here is a link:
I am a huge history nerd, and plan on majoring in it in college. My favorite time period is most definitely the French Revolution, and I would go back and marry Camille Desmoulins any day if I got the chance.
I am a very random person, with a small group of equally random friends whom I love to death. This is me, if you don't like, than I don't care. :)
My Nano Angel for 2011: Chris Baty once said that every time you delete a sentence from your novel, a nanowrimo angel loses its wings and plumets to Earth where it is likely to need medical attention. This is my Nano angel for this year:
(quote)Well, his name is...he's never told me his name -- and apparently still won't -- and he's only got one hand. He lost the other in the Angelic Civil War. He's half-way to fallen, and a warrior to the core. But he still has his wings, however dirty and ragged they are. And he's a redhead with sharp features and brandy eyes. I've kind of been a little in love with him; whenever I daydream about magical boyfriends, they've always been basically him.
But he also likes coffee (which I don't understand) and poetry (which I totally do). (quote)
