I grew up as something of an atheist and am now a practicing Christian.

anything you'd prefer not to read:

Fanfic because the peculiarities of the medium make it difficult for me to give helpful advice regarding characterization/setting etc.
Erotica, because.
Poetry, because there are other excellent mentors who specialize in poetry, and have experience to draw on that I lack.
So you're going to kill a god. Sure. But what happens next?

name: Lizzy, Liz, Elizabeth
age: 15

what you write: I write in a lot of different genres and formats but mostly poetry and novel chapters. My genre is almost always humor and then something else.
what you review: I review pretty much anything that I find in the Green Room but I prefer poems and short stories. I don't like trying to jump into a novel halfway through with no knowledge of the characters or plot.

what you read: For fiction I mostly read mystery (Ellery Queen, Scarpetta, etc.) and horror (The Complete Works of Alfred Hitchcock, Works of Rod Serling, etc.). I do read quite a few nonfictions most of which are about the Civil War and World Wars.

your "specialty": My specialty changes from work to work but in chapters I usually like to stick to the plot development. Like how the current events are going to effect the next chapter. In poetry I comment a lot on the rhyming, flow of the verse, and appearance. In every work I go very in depth on how the author should grab the reader's attention and how effective their current version is. (The title, description, first line are what I consider to be the first impression.

what times you are online:
I'm in the US Central Time Zone. I check in the morning about 8-8:30 for any notifications and several times throughout the day. After 5 here I'm on for a couple of hours, mostly to 8 or 9.


five random things about yourself:
1. I have been riding (horses, not some other mode of transportation) for the past 10 years.
2. I have two Labrador Retrievers which are the 5th and 6th Labs owned by my family.
3. I can not do any sort of acrobatics except for the most basic tumbling because my legs are too long and I can't flip over.
4. I may bore you too death with my discussions of all of the fandoms I belong to.
5. I never wrote poetry before joining the site. (Two poems is all I had written in the past 8 years.)

anything you'd prefer not to read: I will read anything.

Hi! The system's not crazy active but plenty of its members are and we're always happy to show new people around! You can either message someone whose profile you like the look of and ask if they're still taking buddies, or I'd be happy to be your mentor if you'd like?
