Mea: February 17, 2016 - Present
I'm 16 years old, I love to read and write, and I play the piano and viola. I'm a bit of a recluse, the kind of person who spends most of the summer in their room.
I'm an enormous bookworm - always have been, always will be. I'll read pretty much anything except romance.
As far as writing goes, I've managed to complete the first draft of one novel and two years of NaPoWriMo. I've got a long way to go, though.
Feel free to catch me on chatbar or PM me if you want to chat!
felistia: February 2, 2016 - February 17, 2016
I'm a writer. I'm currently on the third book of my series Quest for Fire. I'm also busy writing a spin off novel called Thunder and Ice.
I'm also building a website for teaching people how to make their own handmade beads with polymer clay.
Pretzelstick: January 16, 2016 - February 2, 2016
Most people of YWS call me Pretzel or Pretz(yes I join the ranks of the capital usernames)
And yes, I am a singing pretzel. I love <3 youtube where you can find tons of karaoke and songs.
I am totally crazy obsessed with green, my favorite color! The only color of clothes that I am wearing for months now is...green
Emotions and smiley faces are ssssooo much fun to make, you know.
:d :p <3<3 =) :'(
The express your thoughts and feelings(
It's like I make random faces all the time)
I like to write realistic fiction but I like to read fantasy books. I am currently working on a novel,participating in SB's, and I have a couple of ideas for short stories.
I am an all-together isolated person from this world
or maybe could I be from another??
Read my signature, just DO IT!
Snazzy: December 28, 2015 - January 16, 2016
I'm completely obsessed with band. Marching band, concert band, jazz band, pep band, chamber ensembles, you name it! I love playing piano, and have taken lessons for about 8 years. I've played clarinet for about 5, and have started trying to teach myself baritone as of November 2016. One of my dreams include performing with a drum and bugle corps on baritone (like Legends, or the Bluecoats).
As far as literature goes, I'm in love with pretty much anything Shel Silverstein. I'll also jump on the bandwagon, and say that I love James Dashner and his books. I really like historical fiction, and Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys is by far my favorite.
I normally write short nonsensical poems (dedicated to Shel Silverstein :3), but I have been trying to actually finish one of my many novel ideas. I'm currently working on one entitled "Blotted Out" (again).
I'm a Christian (baptist - yes, we do eat a lot), and I'm rather proud to call myself one of God's family! I also like to run, although I'm not very good!
That's all from me, I guess! Stay snazzy!
passenger: December 14, 2015 - December 28, 2015
You're supposed to write biographies in 3rd person POV, but I'm a rebel.
I'm your average girl, accompanied by a few quirks that you'll immediately become aware of upon meeting me (e.g. reciting movie lines word-for-word, pretending my story characters are real people, maintaining textual indecision about using "lol" or "haha", saying "also" too much, awkwardly repeating your words in song, awarding myself virtual points, imagining the things you say as famous quotes, blurting references you won't understand, leaving for long periods of time without notice, obsessively editing, doling out sarcasm, acting stupidly insecure, laughing too much, not laughing enough, and various others). I am also a ball of stress.
I honestly wish I was better at writing these.
I would probably have more friends.
Chaser: October 26, 2015 - November 9, 2015
Once upon a time, I was plopped to Earth. Fast forward a few embarrassing and/or cute years, and you'll find me at age 11. Heart completely broken(how it actually happened is really lame). Anyway, I got into writing to "express myself." Now I just use it to escape the idiocy of reality. So...yeah. Hi. I'm Chaser.
Steggy: October 11, 2015 - October 26, 2015
I love dinosaurs-- if you ever wanna ramble about them or learn something new, message me . Also reading, and trying to be a lovable person to those I cherish deeply. As someone once told me: If your dreams don't scare you, they aren't big enough.
TheSilverFox: September 24, 2015 - October 11, 2015
I'm an eager, audacious writer who is happy to have finally found a place for talented, educated, and intelligent people who share my interests. My passion is to write, and I'm usually found throughout the day, in some shape or form, writing. I've composed several essays that have been published, worked on a written history of my family genealogy, and done a million other things, whether on my own accord or that of a school's, that can be considered as writing. The particular genres and topics of my writing vary, though I prefer to craft
excessively long short stories and I sometimes even try to write a novel, although I always lose motivation and end up abandoning the project. I also like to dabble with poetry, though my ability to craft skillful poetry is lacking (although I have been getting better over time). Furthermore, my reading interests also vary, though I'm bound to read about anything, from Sherlock Holmes novels to the Sunday comics, so as long as it suits my tastes. Beyond that, I'm mostly incredibly picky about my personal info, so you'll probably never hear about anything in my personal life other than what I've compiled here, and the occasional tidbits that don't exactly coincide with the deeply personal details, like my age, the state in which I live, and the like. Finally, my writing style is detail-obsessive, with long sentences found throughout much of what I write, only occasionally broken up by a small one. If you prefer such works, then I suppose I'm the person for you; otherwise, feel free to hate me for my sheer inability to write anything short and simple. In conclusion, I'm happy to be on the Young Writer's Society, and I hope to stay and develop my writing talents here for years to come.
Oh, and as you can tell from my avatar (provided by the master moderator Lumi himself), I'm a big Pokémon fan. I guess that's what three years of playing the games does for you, eh? And, as you can imagine, I like to write some fan-fiction stories every now and then, though this is largely depending on my personal tastes and whether or not I have inspiration. However, recently, I have largely abandoned most fan-fiction pursuits in favor of some of my more original works. This is not because of any disliking, on my part, fan fiction - I still enjoy composing fan fiction every now and then, and you can find me doing so in the YWS's PMD Storybook (which I will not explain here; you can probably find it yourself, especially given its prominence in the SB forums).
I suppose that topic, not to mention the concept of the biography section itself, probably leads me to my explanation for my username. I thought of the idea of the name I use now because it represents a few aspects of my personality (and also because it was almost time for me to go to sleep when I was creating my account, and I had to come up with something quick. However, for the sake of not sounding like a loser, I'll going to discuss the other reason. ). First and foremost, I'm clever, witty, intelligent, and like to display that in my writing, or sometimes in public, especially during a debate or in a conversation. I play the piano, I'm learning how to speak Spanish fluently, and I'm a friendly, well-meaning person. Thus, especially given the connotations and aspects commonly associated with a fox, the last part of my username came rather quickly to me. Furthermore, the second part of my username also came to me based on some of my personality traits, as well as what I understand about silver. Silver is beautiful, shiny, and gleaming...up until the moment it tarnishes and becomes an hideous gray. That just about sums up my personality - usually optimistic and joyous, eager and creative, unless provoked otherwise. If I become provoked, I become a bit rage-filled (rageful should be a word. ), depressed, frustrated, temperamental, or experience some combination of those negative emotions. Don't worry, I'm not going to spew out my anger on you - I've spent about two years or so on another site around other people, and have managed to perfect my online etiquette. But I suppose I'm straying from the point. In all, that's why I came up with the name TheSilverFox.
In conclusion, that's a summary of me. If you haven't already died trying to read this, I congratulate you for your mettle. Now scat; you probably have better things to do than to listen to a fool's conversation about himself.
RagingLive: September 10, 2015 - September 24, 2015
If I were a building myself as a character I would start with the figure of the average American teen, with not so average ideas. You know, the one that when they get older says to another of their generation, "And we though that we had all the answers. Just look at them now!"
So maybe it turns out our ideas are average, but who cares. take Ted Geisel or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle for example. They're dead.
My character would also spend too much time reading, writing and wasting away at other small hobbies. Maybe one day she'll realize that it all pays off one way or another. Right now she's not too convinced.
My character tries hard to be optimistic and wants to be anything but loud and outspoken. Well, part of her wants to be, but she'd love to be soft and quiet, like the writer you normally think of.
She's for the most part daring, an old soul tugging at her existence. She loves the blue of the sky and wiener dogs. And horses. And cotton candy ice-cream.
Bet I had you going there for a while, huh?
roeckercody: August 11, 2015 - August 24, 2015
I am a 17 year old from Oregon who has a dream to publish many books in his lifetime. I love to read and write, and plan to major in either Creative Writing/Publishing/Editing and am super excited for that.
I am a Storyteller above all else, and want to make others fall in love with storytelling as much as I love it!
