Dream Poets rule the world
Name: Stephanie, Stephy, Steph, whatever you come up with

Genre(s) you write in (poetry/screenwriting/fiction
/songwriting, etc: poetry, fiction, possible song writing but I have not entirely explored that genre as of yet

How does writing intrigue you? I have a very active imagination and there are times when my imagination comes up with something and if I don't record it on paper/on my computer right then it would be lost forever...and I would rather not lose it. I would much rather share it with others who would appreciate it. I have always been drawn to writing, even at a young age in elementary school when we had to make up a story mine would always exceed the expectations of the teacher. Everyone(including myself) always thought I would become a writer, but as I grew older I realized I would rather teach and get young children to be as passionate about reading and writing as I was.

Why are you interested in Dream Poet?: I love the idea of being able to collaborate with other writers with the same passion as myself. I don't have too many people that will give me an honest critique on something, with this resource I could have that and provide that to someone else.

Piece and/or link: This is an excerpt from my most recent work-in-progress. Male POV.

I woke up on Saturday around 2p.m. after having stayed up most of the night reading Twilight. I was almost done with it, pretty easy read. The plot is complex in its simplicity. I had fallen asleep with the book open on my chest, only the epilogue left to read. While reading last night I noticed a few details that triggered my curiosity for why the girls, especially Amy, were acting strange. I pushed the details to the back of my mind so I couldn’t be distracted from reading but now as I sifted my conscious thoughts from my lingering dreams the curiosity began to form again. I rubbed my eyes and read the epilogue quickly before getting out of bed. As I stretched and stood up, I let my mind wander. I don’t know if I’d ever admit to reading it in public, but Twilight was a good book. One of the details I had been suppressing suddenly became the forefront of my thoughts. I have the same name as one of the characters. That was kind of cool I thought. Most people know me as Carl because when I was younger I got teased for having a “funny name” and since I was probably the first kid to have the name Carlisle in at least a hundred years, I shortened it to reduce the likelihood of having to give up my lunch anymore. I doubt the girls would go ga-ga over a name. I meandered to the kitchen and saw a note on the table:

Your father and I went out for the day. We’ll bring back dinner around 6.
Love Mom.

I grabbed some pop-tarts from the counter and headed back to my room. I sat on my bed and turned the TV on. As I ate and channel surfed, more of the details started interjecting themselves. Bella is in love with Edward, her description of him reminded me of someone but I can’t remember who. Look over at my closet and back, but I have to do a double take in the mirror on my door. Edward’s traits flood my thoughts. Untidy reddish brown hair, golden eyes, tall, lanky but muscular, pale, seventeen. I shook my head in disbelief. The description was dead on, except my eyes are hazel but it’s close enough. That’s why all of the girls giggle and blush, they see me as Edward. What about Amy…she said she’s read the book three times already. Does she just want to hang out because I resemble a character in a book? That has to be it. We’ve known each other for so long and she just happened to want to hang out after she read Twilight. I should have seen it coming.
