Hi my name is Kristi. I have posted a few times already but haven't really spoken with anyone yet aside from one or two people. I am obsessed with music. Type O Negative, Pantera, Carcass, Tool...to name a few. I am a fan of Horror and a sucker for romantic comedy as much as I hate to admit it. I am painfully shy but extremely mouthy when I feel I need to be. I don't lie. The truth sucks some but it's better to hear that then be misled. I firmly believe that there is a right and wrong way to say something, knowing that we all (including myself) say things that can be mean. I try to be aware of everything I say and the effects it could have. If I hurt anyones feelings I don't mean to and will apologize if it is brought to my attention. I have one novel finished and 4 others started. Two are children/Young adult. One is Fantasy /Horror with a dash of Romance, the last is actually my favorite. It's from a man's perspective after a nasty breakup. Thats what I am working on at the moment. It was a strange thing to never even consider writing, then all of sudden I get all these ideas at once. I felt like a ping pong ball not quite sure where to go. I have never taken any writing classes and I have horrible spelling, punctuation and grammar, so to all who are OCD about about it I apologize in advance When I started to write everyone around me gave me grief. I heard, "Don't even bother to waste your time." or my favorite, "Seriously, you want to be a writer? HAHAHA!" But I finished my first one and I am proud of it. I didn't write it for anyone but myself and love how it turned out. I would like it to be published but I didn't realize how hard it is. I moved back to Ca in January because my Uncle was put on Hospice. He was only 34 and he and my aunt have 6 kids, so I came back to help. I would sit up with him at night so my Aunt could sleep. He knew he was dying and had wanted to say things to everyone so my first actual writing assignment was a request by him to write his eulogy. We made it light hearted and inappropriately funny. I read it at his funeral last month and surprised everyone because no one knew we did that, everyone laughed when they were supposed to...thank god. Nothing like cracking a joke at a funeral and having 200 people glare at you. Anyway, wow this is probably way too long so I'll stop here. I am pretty open if you want to know anything feel free to ask.
