    LOL sorry, MA. I will say that it involves writing fiction and artwork. Which are part of my FMC's and MMC's external conflict respectively. So it's their life dreams that help out with their dream guy/girl.

    I feel like downloading a load of Beatles stuff (I don't have that much on iTunes yet ) and dropping references to them every so often in this thing...

    I'm only going to write it when I'm stuck/super bored.

    ETA: Going to bed.

    Well, there's some weirdiness in that there is an agent who may or may not be interested, as they did a resub request and haven't gotten to re-reading the resub, and the publisher needs to send a CONTRACT, so...all there is is that amazing good news.

    Go Zoom! I'm hardly refraining from asking you who the publisher is because I saw in the thread you said you couldn't tell.
    Do you have an agent or did you get published solo?
    That's really, really great! And SOO well deserved! :congrats:

    Tally, who's the guy in your avatar? I know who the girl is, and that's why I'm confused.

    We have some questions we ask everyone:
    1. What should we call you?
    2. How old are you?
    3. What do you write (like, sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal, etc)?

    I'm Bookgirl/BG, just turned 22 (so not *technically* a teen anymore, but that's okay), and typically write fantasy, with a bit of historical and contemp thrown in to give it some variety.

    You can call me Springs and I'm 18. As far as what I write, the ideas I get range from more realistic fiction to fantasy and sci-fi. I'm not sure how exactly you would describe my only 'finished' manuscript; it's definitely speculative, as it has aspects of the afterlife and reincarnation in it, but it takes place on a current day earth. I suppose it's paranormal?

    Hi, Springs! I love the concepts of the afterlife and reincarnation, so your story sounds pretty awesome.

    On a sidenote, I just finished watching Water for Elephants and I wanna cry like a little bitch because it was so good.

    I want to see Water for Elephants mainly because I kind of like seeing Robert Pattinson playing any other character than Edward. I think he's a good actor (Remember Me made me cry for hours) and that Edward is just...hmm.

    But welcome to AW, Springs! I'm Ely.
