I've been writing for as long as I can remember. I very vividly remember 2nd grade, when I started my book that became Welks. Of course, at the time, it was dreadfully terrible. I finished the book in 6th grade then started to rewrite it fully in 7th grade because it was just terrible. I'm now in 8th grade, 13 years old, and I've since put Welks off to the side for me to focus on other books.
My current focus is editing Houseless (yes, that's right, I finished the book!) and writing Being Wicked. In the Clouds is what I'll be focusing on after I've finished writing Being Wicked and I begin editing. As you can see, I'm a strong believer of editing and rewriting. There's no such thing as a piece of writing being the best it can be. I think there is always room for improvement.
My favorite authors include Nicholas Sparks, JK Rowling, Jodi Picoult, Neil Shusterman, and many more.
I have a huge variety of interests. I love writing and reading obviously, but I also love musicals (Wicked is my all-time favorite). I also love learning about natural sciences. One of my favorite things to learn about in school is World War II and the Holocaust. No idea why. It just intrigues me.
Me and my best friend Holly Kroft (she has an account on here, check it out) plan to move down to NYC. We'd like to go to college outside of the city then move to the city when we graduate.
I'd like to be a criminalist after graduating from college. If the whole science thing doesn't work out, I plan on becoming an English teacher.
Wow. I wrote a lot. Whoops. Bye bye!
