Hi :) I have a really bad habit of adding a smiley face at the end of all my sentences *inserts smiley just to prove point* :) And I'm also really critical; I've probably deleted more movellas than I've got published. So if you can't find a movella that I've written, sorry about that.
I've started writing pretty much since I first learned how to do it. Even before then, I loved coming up with crazy imaginary games, and awesome fantasy lands (including a candy world, ruled by evil chocolate bars which later became my first ever story). But now that I'm older, I prefer writing more realistic stories. ...Anyway, if you need any help or want me to read a movella just ask! :)

Out of my movellas I recommend reading:

--> The Piano

    Enough's enough.

    I'm not sure if any of you will relate to this, but I really wanted to put my thoughts across.

    For the last couple of years I've been a massive pushover and people pleaser. I struggled to be mean towards anyone without feeling bad, I helped people who didn't deserve it, and I wouldn't even talk about people behind their backs without feeling horrible afterwards.
    I always thought that this would make me a better person and more likeable. But to be honest, as I just start my massive holiday at the end of year 11, I feel like I am more dislikeable than ever. For example many people are nice to me just to get something from me, but they then drop me whenever they want, knowing wouldn't make a fuss out of it. I'm also labelled as "too quiet" and "annoying" and to be honest I'm sick of it.
    I never used to be like this, infact I was more popular when I was meaner person, because even though it's kind of bad to be mean, at least then it helped to give me some sort of personality.
    I feel like the desire to be nice to people and please people has changed me. I no longer have any strong beliefs and I no longer have anything particularly interesting about me. People say I'm boring and annoying, and it took me a while to understand why.
    For now on, I've decided that I'm going to stand up for myself more and not let people use me. I've also decided that I should really give a fuck about being nice to people and pleasing them because whatever you do, somebody will always dislike you.
    It's not like I'm hated by everyone; I have a few great friends, but I'm so sick of being nice to people that are mean to me anyway.

    I just don't know anymore.

    Ah okay and yes I have heard of The Golden Compass! Though I haven't watched it, I don't think.
    I'll definitely have to read the book then :)
    Yeah I think Sarah Dessen is more well known in the states. I love her book Lock and Key (that's probably my favourite) but they're all good tbh!
    Katie McGarry has a Pushing the Limits series starting with the first book - Pushing the Limits, then Dare you to, then Crash into you. I recommend them all; they are amazing! The last one is my favourite though :)
    The northen lights series is amazing have you the the fire song or the mortal instrument series or maybe noughts and crosses?
    Nina :)
    @[Love2write] I think I've heard of lock and key but I haven't heard of pushing the limits. I want to read them all :)
    @[The Snowy Writer Slurg] yeah I know right? No are they any good?
    Okay, you definitely should they're brill:) Let me know what you think of them if you do x

    The end of exams and NaNoWriMo :)

    I had my last GCSE exam yesterday and today's my first day of my eleven week holiday!
    During exam time, the only way to motivate myself to revise was because of the massive break afterwards. But now that it is the holidays, I have a feeling I'm going to become very bored really soon, so I've decided to do NaNoWriMo for the first time this July just to do something to keep me busy. And I know for sure that I'm definitely going to spend more time on Movellas because my account was sort of neglected for the last month... aha :)
    Has anyone else just finished their exams?
    Are any of you doing NaNoWriMo in July?
    Im doing it in november :)
    Oh and congrats for finishing ur exams.
    Nanowrimo is when you write a novel in a month. It is so you can spend the rest of the year editing it. Some ppl do it in november and some do it in july
    Oh, I see. Thanks for explaining XD
    Your welcome.
    Nina what exam did you find the hardest?
    Nina :)
    Thanks, and probably my Graphics exam. Not because the theory was difficult, but the fact that I could barely draw everything in 2 hours. My final design in the exam was a scribble XD

    300 fans!! :D

    I can't believe I just reached 300 fans! Thanks so much to everyone who fanned me, gave me feedback, or who made me feel welcome on Movellas - I really appreciate it. I can't express how glad I am that I discovered this site because the last two years (well almost) have been awesome :)
    Woo! :D
    (Oh and shoutout to my 300th fan, @[Chloe_123_x] !)

    So today in French we were learning after future plans and my French partner asked me what I wanted to be when I was older. And since I worried way too much about what he'd think (stupid, I know) to say I wanted to become an author (as to total idiots like himself, it isn't exactly the coolest career choice) so I just said that I wanted to go to university to study something I enjoy.
    Guess what he said?
    "...That's a bit gay."
    FIRST OF ALL how is university "gay"?! Last time I checked gay was a sexuality NOT a future plan. Second of all, what's wrong with going to univesity? Just because I actually want to get somewhere decent and educate myself and not end up in some sort of dead-end job, doesn't make it "gay" or bad in any shape and form.
    Seriously, what is up with some people?
    Ahlaam NightshadeAmbass..
    Oh, oops. I have no idea why I read that as teacher. But still, it is horrible.
    I'm really sorry you have such an ignorant French partner. That is a really mean and idiotic thing to say
    Honestly, I'm not surprised that someone said that. All the time I hear comments in my school like
    "Oh, If i ever get in trouble my parents will just bail me out." Or something along the lines of.
    "OMG her parents are taking her to Florida and not to the Bahamas? I wouldn't even go on the trip if they did that to me!" so trust me I can understand how frustrating that is.
    Your picture describes it perfectly XD
    Nina :)
    Yeah it stinks. I didn't talk to him for the rest of the lesson, and yeah, there are idiots everywhere haha!

    I WILL finish my movellas at some point...

    I've decided that SOMEHOW I'm going to have to finish The New Me and Wolf by the end of the year.

    I just seem to set myself ridiculous writing targets which I never meet and I just end up starting new stories and I just dunno anymore. I shouldn't even be writing on here anyway when my exams are in like 5 weeks. But somehow ranting on here seems like a better idea atm.
    (...srsly, why am I so lazy? )
    The New Me is amazing ive been waiting for an update for so long
    Nina :)
    @[Megites Nightshade] I know, it's just so much more difficult trying to get stuff done when there are better things to do. :)

    @[Snowy Writer] Thanks! I'm just starting the next chapter. Hopefully I'll start updating a bit more frequently in the summer holidays. :)

    paper hearts
    one: the new me is AMAZING!!!!
    two: i so know that feeling
    Nina :)
    Thanks :)
