Just a few facts about me: I'm a terrible singer, but I join musicals anyway. I have three of the most awful habits in the world, nail biting, staying up too late, and procrastinating. In fact, I'm doing all three right now. I'm also one of the few teenagers in the world who actually like school. I can solve a Rubix cube. I own the most adorable (and annoying) cat in the world. I love country music, especially Taylor Swift. I love Amanda Seyfried movies, whether it be Mamma Mia, Letters to Juliet, or simply Mean Girls. I have an odd obsession with owls. I just think they provide a lot of inspiration for writing, and they kind of represent me in a lot of ways.
Well, now you know and understand a few of my quirks. I think people need to know what their quirks are, before they even truely understand themselves. I also think the word quirk is a very......quirky word. Another thing to know about me is that I think laughter, and smiling, is amazing. Smiling at someone can change their whole day, laughing can change your whole mood. I think that it's important in life for that to happen.
There's really not much to me. I live with both my parents, and my little sister. I have some awesomely quirky friends. I've got a boyfriend too, and he's always really great. I do have a lot of issues with anxiety though, but its just something I have to deal with. Just another of life's probelms. I like to approach life's probelms like I do novels. They all get resolved in the end, you just have to find a way. After all, you are the author. Sure, there's plot twists along the way, and sometimes you have to let other characters guide you, but in the end, everything is tied together. You just need to think it through.
Anyway, I've always been the quiet kid in school. The one who doesn't talk. And almost anyone will tell you that I love writing. Writing is my life. I've wanted be a writer my whole life. I think it's what I was meant to do. At school, whenever we have a free period, I'm writing, whether it's just about my day, or the next chapter of my novel. My english teacher hates me because of the fact that I turn any written assignment into something resembling the first draft of a novel. And that's about it. Well, I suppose there's a bit more to me, but I'd rather spend my time telling the world about my main character in my novel than telling the world about myself.
Feel free to message me though, about anything, whether it has to do with writing or not. ~Madeline
