Since not everyone is familiar with the term, I'll go ahead and lay it out for you. I read, analyze, and write about books. I give my opinion on characters, setting, genre, style, and sometimes even covers. I say what works, what doesn't, and what I'd like to see.
In short, I criticize.
Back - back foul demon! Burn the witch! Don't come anywhere near me!
Yeah, I know you're all thinking it. What gives me the right to rifle through someone's hard work and put its flaws on display? Who do I think I am, slandering authors with false interpretations and quotes made out of context?
I'm a writer.
Yeah, of nothing but muck and lies.
No, no, I mean I write my own fiction. Or at least I did.
What, couldn't take some of your own medicine?
Yes and no.
Like most writers, I crave exposure. I want my work out there, read by the masses and enjoyed. DeviantArt, my blog, they're both small outlets where my writing can be seen.
But, as most writers

Pills and whiskey down her throat
As she slowly stumbles down the stairs.
Through her cries and regret
She begins crashing into walls.
"Call 911!" I yell, as I begin holding my mother
After she collapsed, her head hitting the floor.
I hear police sirens outside our home.
My sister runs through the front door in fear.
The paramedics begin asking her things
That she barely knew the answer to.
"What's your name?"
"Do you know where you are?"
And most importantly..
"Why did you do it?"
"I didn't want to bother her anymore."

Falling down, falling down.
London Bridge is falling down,
My fair lady.
This wasn’t happening. It couldn’t be, surely there had been some mistake. Somewhere a stack of papers was misfiled, or some clipboard was changed with another. There was something off about it all as Arthur watched your coffin sink into the ground. You couldn’t be in there, could you?
You couldn’t just be gone. There was no way you’d leave Arthur all alone, right?
You-You promised him. A promise is a promise no matter what.
Why would you break such a promise and end your life?
All Arthur could feel was the cold. There were goosebumps on his skin as he curled up on the couch you two had spent so many a night upon. But he did nothing to stop them. Shivers wracked his body, but he knew he couldn’t stop them with warmth or friction. This was the cold brought on by severe loss. A cold no man of good heart should ever have to feel, despite how ma

Sonic and Rainbow Dash hurtled through space towards the planet seeking desperately to halt this deadly gambit the Doctor had played. It wasn’t long before they had caught up with Metal Sonic, who had a fist buried deep into one of the warheads, yanking out wires and components before leaping away and watching the large rocket erupt in a small explosion into scrap.
“We must hurry,” the robot announced catching sight of the two of them. “If we can get to the missiles before they reach the upper atmosphere, they won’t have reached their terminal Area of Effect. The nuclear payload will be disengaged before it reaches that distance. I calculate we have less than three minutes to stop them before they reach that point. Move with speed and sense of purpose.” After Metal had given them this instruction, he blasted off to the next rocket.
“You heard the bot Sonic, you need to move with speed, so you better keep up!” Rainbow Dash taunted as she t

My ConfessionI never really thought about my lack of sexual interest before society confronted me with it.My Confession5 months ago in Emotional More Like This
It took me quite a while to notice guys as anything more than "other people", and when I did, it was more a group pressure thing than real interest.
I even had a boyfriend then, but not because I particularly liked the guy. Having a boyfriend in your teens is a status symbol. Have one, you're cool, have none, you're not.
Of course, back then things weren't that clear to me. I went with the flow.
For a very long time, I wondered what is wrong with me that I don't enjoy sex, that It makes me feel awkward and that I have no desire to go out and date. Society made me believe it is wrong to be like that. I was ashamed of myself, of my flaws and my obvious failure of being a full-fledged human being.

Longer yet to forget.
Eighty-nine to die, and
I picture you instead.
I wasn't there to know it,
But I took his age-old hand,
And squeezed the dying fingers
As you left me once again.
You aren't here to see it,
But nobody's new again.
If I were you and you were me,
We'd think we were the same.
Bu if I dared to tell you,
You'd just have to disagree,
Not because you think it wrong,
But because it came from me.
And through the night we traverse
In the mystery of dark,
Walking through the histories
and piecing broken hearts.
I can't quite see, I need your eyes,
I need your helping hand.
The words rang true within our hearts,
But fell false within our heads.
We weren't quite there to see it,
But we once worked hand-in-hand.
I can't discern what happened,
But it won't come true again.
We were falling through a city
That was crafted pure of glass
Where we held true together
But we knew it wouldn't last.
I can't quite feel, I need your heart,
I need the mind of gold.

It has been reported that the most wanted bandit, Arthur Kirkland has struck again!
According from the police in their report earlier this evening, it is been said that the International Swiss Bank has been robbed of its most protected treasure, the very last gem of the Hope diamond.
Policemen are really baffled about this matter, as the security around the place is very tight. How could it be that he was able to infiltrate and left the scene without any trace at all…?”

A mother's regretIt was as silent as the grave right now. Twilight sat there, at the other end of the table from Celestia, staring at her beloved mentor with her mouth hanging open. It felt like an eternity since Celestia had spoken, but no amount of passed time could make what she'd said any easier to swallow. It wasn't true, Twilight told herself. This was some sort of joke. There was no way that what Celestia had said could possibly be real. Maybe this was a dream, or even a nightmare.A mother's regret2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

The words had been hard to get out, almost as though her mouth refused to register them. Celestia meanwhile, merely sat on the other side of the table and quietly nodded. She said nothing, merely waited for Twi

It was all meaningless buzzes for you; you felt the damp air against your skin and slightly woke up from the numb feeling. You saw that the mirror trend was also carried out here, there were many mirrors, put in a big circle and the middle of it was the dance floor which was completely empty now.
After Loki pulled you in the middle of the dance floor, he turned to face you with a frown and let out a deep sigh. You looked around the countless mirrors surrounding you, spotting Loki from any angle you could possibly look at him. The seriousness of his face made you feel uneasy, but on the other hand you knew you had a reason to be this grumpy. You were determined to keep your silence until he broke his.

The majority of governments to the world's numerous, diverse nations went through the same grind, the Queen's Kingdom in the still underdeveloped Far East being no exception, thus was the price of 'modernization'. She personally could not bear these long, tedious meetings with these incompetent buffoons inside that dreary, freezing closet of a room as they were.
