  1. If you can’t handle this world; Make you’re own.

    ^ Totally me, for all the others who can’t handle reality.

  2. A woman who can name all of the structures in the human body, can recall hundreds of drugs from memory, but walks into a room and forgets why she was there in the first place!

    I would literally lose my head if it wasn’t attached to my body. πŸ˜›

  3. He can’t figure it out so he doesn’t sit down and think; he sings the Point of No Return and asks why Phantom of the Opera is the only thing that helps.

  4. Whoops — at first I wasn’t logged in to LJ and accidentally posted this anonymously.

    Anyway, I said:

    he can’t figure it out, so he doesn’t sit down and think; he sings The point of No Return and wonders why Phantom of the Opera is the only thing that helps.

  5. A big woman with big personality, funny but not pretty. A natural entertainer, she faces the world armed with acceptance – for herself, for others – and scruples. An old soul with an inability to truly grow up.

    (Boy, writing that felt conceited!)

  6. Myopic, crazed bibliophile whose secret power is attracting felines, and as a result, now has more cats then sense.

  7. A single space slipping from shadow to shadow only to shine brilliantly at the least expected time.

  8. That’s life. Mixed-up, funny, sad, all at once. There’s nothing you can do; why not?

  9. I am the girl wtith the crooked kind of lovely, like a impresssionist painting or a hopeful 3-leaf clover.I can shine like sun of the surface of water, or drift around like fog on the tree tops. i am full of wanderlust and yet i love the comfort of home. I am a paradox, I am me.

  10. There was once a girl who didn’t fit in anywhere, and was so lonely it curled inside her like a snake; there was once 4 billion of them, all certain they were different.

  11. Never tried to be normal, nore deny that she is just the right amount of crazy, but instead goes through life trying her best to make the ride worthwhile.

  12. Through the wastelands I stumble in the darkness…please don’t try to rescue me, for I fear what will happen to you here…

  13. … and when she writes all of it is torn down until she can see the horizon and the meaning, and she can kiss both goodbye over the sound of the keys that ground her.

    • ok so i love this and im thinking you made it cuz i cant find it anywhere. do you think i could know ur name so whe i use it youll get creat for it πŸ™‚

  14. There once was a girl who could sing like she was on top of the world, until one day her shiny vocal chords were ripped out clean; now she lies mangled and blood-smattered a tiny heap on the floor beautiful belonging to her no more.

  15. Her presence always seemed larger than the package holding her soul as she could fill an entire room while only occupying a fraction of it.

  16. “Many people hear voices when no-one is there. Some of them are called mad and are shut up in rooms where they stare at the walls all day.
    Others are called writers and they do pretty much the same thing.”
    -Author Unknown

    Unfortunately, this one probably sums up a lot of people here. So I’ll think of something different instead:

    Once upon a time, there lived a very ordinary girl in a rather ordinary world… but nothing could be further from the truth!

  17. πŸ˜€ OMG, TESSA’S! *makes grabby hands* Here’s my try:

    Sometimes it’s dark… and then you remember to look up to the sky; breathe in the clouds.

  18. I am the dullest of waters, shone through with a ray of sunlight; sparkling by day, energy dissipated by night.

  19. A cat with the moon in her eyes, a queen of lullaby adrift on the sea of dreams, and a complex simplicity in regards to the simple complexity of the world around her.

  20. And life is worth the living, and some things are meant to be; add the broken to the broken, and the answer sets you free.

  21. Slow is the climb up the hill but once I’m at the top, I will burst upon this world like fireworks and light up the whole sky.

  22. Wherever the bird flies — my eyes, my heart, and my thoughts follow.

    I added to your first-week sales on Friday so I don’t *really* need another copy, but this one would be way more awesome. If I won, I would immediately shuttle my first non-doodled copy off to the teen collections specialist at our library to add to the collection. πŸ™‚

  23. A vivid imagination that defies age and social boundaries; a free spirit that enjoys life and all of it’s little magics, from the dew on flowers to the colours of the sunsets.

  24. Her concrete shoes cannot keep the patterns and colours of her mind in dull shapes and shades.

  25. It wasn’t just that she was made up of 32 different flavors of ice cream– it was that all of the flavors were unexpected. And while some of them were delicious (pineapple cilantro sorbet, for example) some of the really didn’t work out very well at all. (Tomato ice cream, for those wondering, is bound to fail no matter how good the tomatoes you start out with are.)

  26. I am a 29 year old poet-songwriter-musician-blogger-friend-polyamorist-bisexual-fiance-girlfriend-puppy-mama wolf-lover-protector-child-godmother-freak-gypsy-homebody-storyteller-superhero, who knows a guy if you really need that thing done, and loves questions if that doesn’t answer enough them for you. πŸ™‚

  27. When life gets overwhelming, sometimes you have to stop everything and make a gnome.

    (Yes, I really do make gnomes in my spare time….I’m weird like that….)

  28. My head is a rainbow in flux; I refuse to change my mind, so swap my hair colour instead. My skeleton shines silver with screws and not stars, but I still wish…

  29. The most important things I’ve learned in life – perseverance, strength, unconditional love, joy, gentleness, hope, grief, acceptance, sacrifice – I have learned from and because of my son.

  30. Dark and twisted, ebony wrapped around a sparkle of faery dust, she held the world in her cracked glass hands, but like so much rubbish she tosses it merrily over her shoulder never looking back.

  31. “(She) attacked everything in life with a mix of extraordinary genius and naive incompetence, and it was often difficult to tell which was which.”

    Okay, so I stole it from Douglas Adams, but it fits so perfectly!

  32. Hmmmm….something that epitomizes me….
    I’m not sure, so I guess I’ll steal a few lines from one of my many poems:

    I wish there was a way to capture this moment,
    to make it mine,
    to always remember it.
    The problem is,
    no matter how hard I wish
    they never come trueβ€”
    well, according to this moment,
    this moment of my dreamsβ€”
    almost never.

    Can’t wait to read Blood Magic!!!!!!!


  33. I am just a booklover who understands that all stories, even our darkest ones (especially our darkest ones) are love stories. You are beautiful.
    (Also I like parentheses)

  34. There is a piece of me in every story I read and a piece of every story that I have read in me.

  35. A body reliant on wheels, a soul that dreams big. Sometimes it feels trapped, suffocated. But look – tread marks tattoo this world and the hearts of many. Dream, always.

  36. I am the very Prince of Thieves, for I steal not jewels nor gold but moments in time.

  37. She had her nose in a book and was so oblivious to the world around her she never even noticed the sky had gone dark.

  38. “Here’s to your girlish charm, animal magnetism, and quaint bedside manner!” πŸ˜‰

  39. I am a rainbow, such a different person changing from one thing to the other. I am not afraid to show all my colours when I get the chance.

  40. She was like a rock and people commented with awe about how strong she was; but when you looked closer, you could see the myriad of fissures and marks and suddenly, it was not so solid at all.

  41. It’s the worst thing in the world, being lost in someone else’s life…it’s better to be lost in your own, because then you have a better chance of being found.

  42. Of course I’m right, when have I ever been wrong? Now out of my way I’ve got things to do.

  43. The one who loves to be underestimated because of her age, her favorite thing to do is throw their “wit” back in their face.

  44. And she flowed like a bright red ribbon on a slightly breezy day.

  45. Laziness is the mother of all vice… but, it’s a mother and you should respect her!

  46. How can you know me? I hardly know myself.


    it’s hard to be so deep when you’re just this shallow.

    I’m in a self-deprecating mood. πŸ™‚ I blame hyperbolic sunstroke

  47. If books are all we needed for happiness, one could be complete in a library. Alas, cats and lovers exist to fill the small hole a story can not.

  48. Abandoned as a child so lived in fairytale and fable. Grew up and forgot to live until she found the beauty of a blank page and unlocked the stories in her head. Life and love combined once more and never again will she feel abandoned.

  49. I’m in need of a calming serum that works on both my hair and my brain.
    Sara Lynn

  50. I want to be famous in the way a pulley is famous,
    or a buttonhole, not because it did anything spectacular,
    but because it never forgot what it could do.

    ~Naomi Shahib Nye from β€œFamous” from Words Under the Words: Selected Poems

  51. Anything that can go wrong will.

    What goes up must come down.

    All the good ones are taken.

    Really I love Murphy. So many so true.

  52. Reading a book can kidnap your worries, stealing them away until you are ready to deal with them through the mind of someone sensible… or through the mind of a witty character.

  53. Her voice echoed across the valley as she screamed, “Just WHEN, world, are you going to write that NOVEL?”

  54. Optimists think the glass is half full. Pessimists think the glass is half empty. Realists know that someone will have to wash the glass.

  55. Hmmmmm. Let’s see what I’ve got. Something that epitomizes me . . .

    “Life isn’t about what you plan on doing, it’s about doing all the things you never planned to do.”
    -Me πŸ˜‰

  56. Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forgive the ones that don’t, and know that everything happens for a reason. If you’re given a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy, they only promised it would be worth it.

  57. If you wish to live wisely, ignore sayings including this one. ← Amen!

  58. Call me crazy, but not stupid, because the madness I do enjoy. If I were stupid I wouldn’t know enough to sit back and enjoy the show.

  59. Children are the heart and soul of us, neglect them and their future is ruined, love them and watch miracles take place!

  60. The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion
