Hello all! I'm Rosepetals, or Melody (on the blog world).
I look for beauty in everything, and desire to capture it any way I can. Poetry and short stories are my forte, but I through NaNo I am getting better at novels as well. NaNoWriMo is my "excuse" for working on all the perfect story ideas I come up with and then never find time for.
I get an indescribable thrill from a well-turned phrase, a unique metaphor, a heart-wrenching emotion painted vividly on the page. I desire for all of my creativity (whether through art, music, or writing) to reflect my God.
- where all good college students should be: in front of my laptop
- playing piano, reading, knitting, art, poetry, journaling,
- Favorite noveling music:
- Classical piano, modern piano, soundtracks - especially Narnia, Pride & Prejudice, Spirit, Stallion of the Cimarron... I also like some contemporary Christian artists & bands (like Casting Crowns, Meredith Andrews, 10th Avenue North), but not for novel writing (I get too distracted!)
