My Stories . Bio Fav: Stories
Hello! I'm Sarah, and I'm a nerd.
Just so everybody knows: I love to write, obviously. However, I'm currently a junior in high school, and I'm taking four AP classes this year, in which I work hard not to have below a 99 in any of them (math is another story). I have to look at colleges, study for SATs, write for the News and try to get all my homework and reading done on time. I try to spend my free time with family and friends, and this year especially I don't have a whole lot of time to write. I really appreciate everybody who reads and reviews my stories, and I feel bad that I can never find the time to update. I just want to thank everybody for their patience and warn you guys that I'm a pretty slow updater for the aforementioned reasons. However, I do try to squeeze in a chapter here and there whenever I can find time (:

'Good Luck' by Big D & The Kid's Table (Because this whole song is one big giant quote for me)
I've seen 22 years of life/ And I think I basically know what's going on/ As far as what life's not about.
Well there's a cycle I won't be part of/ But not because I don't think it's right/
I must keep doing what I think I'm here for/ Not get buried in someone else's life,
When I was younger, I didn't know life meant falling into place/ Taking over a menial position/ That meant nothing to you in the first place,
Getting older, confused by friends they're 22 and almost done/ I must have missed the grow-up sign/ I thought we were still having fun
So good luck, with not forgetting who you are,
Good luck, even though it seems you have to
Good luck, finding your own way, not setting in where your not happy
Good luck, remembering it's only life
Good luck, not following what you don't believe in
Good luck, seeing many problems are only a big deal if you make them
Everyone I met surrounds me every day in my head/ It's a part of what makes me who I am/ It's the attitude of my life,
And I turn around and see how some have made me feel/ So nice to be, just made me laugh at life when I couldn't deal.
And I wanna be just like that/ It's what I'm trying to be want to be,
Not held down by others but now I can see/ I'll make my life a place I like or I could just sit and blame for things not right/ What's to gain spending all of our life putting your friends down again and again?
Good luck, being someone who can always help someone out
Good luck, in remembering how much you can effect someone else
Good luck, with not being selfish
Good luck, with not being alone
Good luck, in this world we're all just trying to get along
Good luck, with not getting caught up
Good luck, with not getting stressed
Good luck, with figuring things out
Good luck, with doing your best
Good luck, with not loosing yourself
Good luck, with standing for what's right
Good luck, for being happy when you sit to review your life
There's probably more but this is all I can think of right now :)
So, that's me. I don't really know how to end my profile, because I'm kind of socially awkward and all. But I'd just like to give a humungous thanks to everybody who's ever reviewed or favorited or alerted one of my stories. It means a lot to me to know that people are actually enjoying what I write, and tips are always welcome. So...thanks! (:
Oh, and I ALWAYS forget the disclaimer in my stories (are they really necessary? I mean come on, do I look like James Patterson?), so here it is now: I do not own any of the characters from any of the books in any of my fanfictions. I only own the characters I make up, and the plots I create. It's pretty self-explanatory.
I'll wrap it up with one of my favorite poems, by my hero. I could probably recite this in my sleep, but I used the book to get every capitalization and apostrophe right. Enjoy!
"Of Wild Artists Writing"
By David McWane
From The Gypsy Mile
What will I do now
With this dread
That has set in?
Review chords that may sound nice in a specific
With specific beats per minute
What's the point?
The chances of
Are slim to none
"He's just not a good writer"
"He spells like a 5th grader"
"Anyone can do this"
But everyone doesn't
About impulsive writing plans
Jot down moments of creativity
In a notebook
A gift from a girlfriend
Given three Christmases past
I dislike the haters
Of wild artists writing
With a book
That is bound
Dead in the middle or just past it
It has a cover
And a foreword too
With a dedication
To my father
About my writers block
Thinking about how you
Write better than
What you are now reading
And you should
That's the point
And my dread is gone
