My name is Sara and I like to write. I have been splitting my time between Jax, FL and Cinci, OH for the past couple years (came up to Ohio for dreams that didn't work out but only left me in lots of debt). I feel like I am having a midlife crisis and the age of 23. Then again, I have felt that way since I was 12, when I was first diagnosed with bipolar disorder after a tragic event (tragic for my parents, that is). And so, my writing takes on a more darker tone, hoping to relieve some of my suffering. Has it been working? Not permanently. I have gone through my life thinking it is better to hide behind my mask and so I withdraw from the world and when I don't have many good friends I wonder why (DUH). But it is all about perspective. I try and stay as objective towards people's beliefs and opinions as I can. I understand we have all gotten to where we are by our own life experiences. I like poetry, nonfiction (I once received a fortune cookie advising me to study those you admire, and I truly appreciate that. Not that you should become someone you are not, but to learn from those around you). I am a huge fan of Tolkien, Neil Gaiman, Clive Barker and Chuck Palahniuk. The Thief of Always is my favorite book. Writing for me is a special, and much need, outlet. I hope to share with and learn from the people here! PS: How in the world do I change my profile avatar?
