Hopefully this is where you'll come first so you can tell everyone in the group a bit about yourself.

I'm Mist/Cassidy. My real name is Cassidy, but Mist is the nickname I go by with a lot of my friends and here on GR.
I love to read and write. Those are my two biggest passions.


message 2: by Evelyn (new)

Evelyn (evelyntaliette) Hello there.
My name is Evelyn Taliette, as you can see. I go a by a variety of nicknames, Ms. Oddity especially because of my unique love of the strange. I'm a rising author who hopes to be published eventually, but for now only dabbles in short stories.
As for reading, I'll read anything- biographies, manuscripts, warstories, sparkly vampire romances, apocalyptic scenarios- anything.

Nice to meet you all.

Hi Ciel! Thanks for joining!
Are your stories/songs posted on here? I would love to read them, if you wouldn't mind. I love Edgar Allen Poe too. He's one of my favourite poets. I love reading all of the classics too. Jane Austen is one of my favourite all time authors!

Violent Vi (violetk) | 6 comments *starts beatboxing* You ready? You ready? You re-re-re-ready? My name is Violet, I'm super violent, I'm full of anger and it takes little to rile it. WORD! Hey it's Vi Y'all!

Jack | 3 comments Hey, I'm Jack.

I like to read books.

According to some, I'm also a wizard, mind-reader, and forty year old man.

And Violet, it didn't take much to rile your anger during that debate we had. Which I won.

First of all, it's a Dratini.

Second of all, "ass-castle"?

I'm not convinced that you're not a mind-reader. We have tons of evidence proving that you are :P

message 13: by Ivy (last edited Sep 09, 2012 06:54PM) (new)

Ivy (iwanttocrawlintobookslivethere) | 24 comments Hi I'm Ivy. I'm going to try and make this short and sweet cause I tend to write or talk or whatever way tooooo much so anyways...
I can't go a day without reading at least one book and on a really good day I'll read up to four. I DO NOT skim. How much I hate it when someone asks that. When I'm not reading I'm usually writing. I mostly write short stories, poetry, and get half way through writing a book and dump in a junk file. I sometimes critic myself harshly and it's one of the reasons I don't finish a lot of things but, I am working on a parnormal romance right now and it's looking great so far! When I'm not reading or writing, I'm probably snoring through class or doodling in my sketchbook.
Well before I take up the entire comment box, I'll say ta ta and don't be afraid to friend me or whatever.

Oh and Hi Delaney :)

Ophelia ॐ Hey all! I am Ophelia! Love to read and write though I don't really have to anymore to free-write, but I do a ton of assignments for school. Um, I invited a lot of you guys, so your welcome! hahah, anyway this seems like a great group Mist :))

This is kind of like the moment where Harry and Ron bond over Red Vines in AVPS. ;P
I never shut up. I talk and talk and talk, till it gets to the point that someone has to duct-tape my mouth so I'll shut up. I read like crazy. I'm a speed reader and I can't STAND it when people accuse me of skimming.
I definitely critique myself too hard when I write. I can usually make it half way through a novel and then I decide I hate the beginning and I scrap it.
I'm also working on a paranormal/romance/ya/fantasy book right now. I'm hoping I'll complete this one and that it will be good enough to be published. Keeping my fingers crossed on that last one! :)

Thanks for joining Emily! I'm sure you're a great author. Hopefully you can start to get over that feeling on here At least, that's one of the things I'm hoping to accomplish on this group. :)

Sorry, but i use Wattpad!
FanFiction.Net is very hard to navigate and use. Trust me, i tried using it but ended up doing nothing except deleting my account.

message 31: by L (last edited Sep 10, 2012 11:02AM) (new)

L (audinosbiitch) Hello!

I'm Eleanor H., and I love to write, both stories and poetry. I'm not SUPER good at editing/critiquing writing(well, actually, I AM good, just not on the computer...), but I love giving simple feedback...
I'm also VERY, VERY interested in music, so if you want to talk to me about that I'd love to!
You can go look up my stories under my creative writing(you might have to be my friend to get there directly, but looking up 'eleanor la fille d'hades' in creative writing works well usually), and in Figment under the name Kendra Sunderson.
Tata!


message 32: by Matthew (new)

Matthew Vincent  (Defslammer) | 1 comments Hey there. I'm Matthew Vincent. Vincent is just a pen name by the way. I love to read, obviously. And I'm just like you. I'm an aspiring author. I write short stories, and have recently begun some novel projects. I'm 15 years of age, and my favorite authors include, but are not limited to: Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, and Dean Koontz to name a few.

I upload my stories on Figment.com under the name Matthew Vincent. My favorite genres are fiction, horror, sci-fi, and all that good stuff. So, nice to meet you all.


message 33: by Madelaine (new)

Madelaine Keam (thisistoostessful) Hi, I'm Madi, I love to read and write, although I haven't had a lot of time to do either recently, because of school (I live in Australia and I'm in my last year, so I only have a few weeks left and it's pretty stressful).

I tend to write the begginings of a lot of stories so I can return to them later (I have a folder with about 10 first chapters for different stories) and try to focus on one story at a time.

I like to read all sorts of stuff and don't really have a favourite author or anything.


message 34: by Cassie (new)

Cassie  (CassieVylon) | 4 comments Hey thurr. I'm Rachel, a socially awkward 16-year-old punk-goth girl. I read. I write. I skateboard. I'm crazy for partying and fighting.
I'm hoping ot study creative writing as I grow older, and hopefully get a laptop on my birthday (not even 3 months away). I'm hoping to become and author, and already I'm working on a few different stories( still in their first stages).
I read so many genres. But some of my favorites are: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Horror, gothic, Thriller, etc.

I haven't gotten to post any of my work yet, but I may soon... so watch out for that.

OMFG HI CIEL! <3 *waves excidly*

Thanks for the invite, Ophelia! <3

Hi, my name is Claire, but you can call me Cool Beans if you want to. I like to read anything pretty much. I have also written a few short stories on Goodreads, but most of them are kind of unfinished. :D

message 39: by Goge (BARRONS) le Moning Maniac, (last edited Sep 10, 2012 11:51PM) (new)

Goge (BARRONS) le Moning Maniac, Hello. Goge, here. I try to read a little of everything so I can be exposed to the psych of any and every kind of person that walks or doesn't walk this earth. Psychological analyses --> motivation, behaviors; different kinds of backgrounds of people -->diff race, poverty, middle, rich, diff country; what types of people are there --> psychopaths, gentle ladies, murderers, bullies, victims, royalty, dictators... or if paranormal characters --> vamps, faeries, werewolves, selkies, mermaids... and so forth. I want to know all kinds of information and be exposed to all kinds of people and things and places in this world. I want to scour every inch and millimeter of this planet and solar system. Reading and researching and learning is what I live for. Writing is what I am passionate about and what induces me to the malady of "butterflies in my tummy". And to giddiness, intoxication, and adrenaline rush.

--I also spend too much time enjoying(?) editing...
