Sooo ... I recently acquired some spare change and purchased a mechanical keyboard. Oh. Boy. I finally found what my fingers have been missing all these years. I did it to give myself a better writing experience and actually enjoy typing instead of always writing with a fountain pen and then leaving the words on paper indefinitely. It should certainly do the trick!

That said, I've been working on Dreamcaster again recently (my novel project that's been "in the works" far, far too long). I think I've pinned down a better plot, but I won't know for sure until I write the damn thing. I'm currently rewriting what I wrote for NaNo last November and will go from there. But it's hard, and I need help.

I've tried the whole beta reader group thing before, but inevitably everyone gets busy (including me) because that's just how life works. However, I'm serious about my writing and would love to find just one person to work with who has a little spare time and a good understanding of storytelling. I need someone to keep poking me until I finish the story! (Via Skype if possible.) In exchange, I will help you with your writing any way I can. I'm not the best beta reader/editor, but I'm good at encouraging people to keep writing, and I'm awesome at story and character development. 

Here's a little bit about Dreamcaster:

It's a YA decopunk novel about a girl who can transmit whatever she imagines in her head to a live audience (with a little help from technology). She movies from her small town to the city with her brother so she can complete in the annual Dream Battles. In the city, casters are considered celebrities, but she's not interested in fame. She has a speech impediment, and casting is vital to her ability to communicate. While dreamcasting may be seen solely as entertainment, she tries to bring casting's true potential to light.

Trigger warnings include violence, disturbing deaths, and suicide. (But none of these are the main focus of the story.

So yeah, send me a note if you're interested. :aww:

Hello, my name is Grace.
Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
United States
I like to consider myself a nerd with class--not because I'm classy but because I enjoy the classic things in life. I'm the kind of person who notices all the little specks of beauty and inspiration that tend to hide just out of sight everywhere we look. I'm passionate about living a life of creativity and enjoy writing, design, photography, and architecture to name a few of my favorites.

I'm currently living in Ohio, and I work at a gun shop for my day job and train dogs as my side job. Not even kidding. I have an interesting life.

Give a llama, get one back!

I happened to inadvertently get some work done on my HTC for this year, ended up writing something for "breaking the rules", and had a fun[ny] idea:

Someone should do an HTC that includes that theme, then just write 99 pieces for only that theme while ignoring the other 99 themes. The 100th piece would be the previous 99 pieces considered as one giant rule breaking for the entire HTC itself lol.

Lol that would be interesting ... Though I think I would get tired of it and/or run out of ideas will before 99.
