Hello fictionpress.com

My name is not Elizabeth Arlen actually, I'm not really going to say what it is, but my pen name is a combination of one of my middle names and my dad's middle name. I have another account on fictionpress.com but I created this one because I don't really want all of my domestic friends to read everything I write. Not that I don't trust them or anything, I just don't want them to know every thought or idea that comes into my head. I'm sure a lot of people can identify with that.

So far, the only story I have up is called Mark. Its a working title, kind of a crappy one, but I figure it'll do until I can come up with a better one. This is a story I'm still in the process of writing and its kind of a-- I don't really know how to say it in technical terms but I'm writing it kind of based off a real life situation. My boyfriend is 14 and I'm 18 (which, in my defense, I didn't know when we started going out, it was kind of remiss on my part) and its just a story of what could happen if I did get super serious with him and--et cetera. So its just kind of a creative process for me; I'm experimenting a lot with how I write while exploring the realms of possibility. That's what this story is to me exploration and experimentation. Feedback is totally appreciated.

I'd also like to say that if you review me, I take requests to go read your story and review. I think that reciprocity is what makes this such a great site to be on so if you desire, you will be reciprocated. That's right.

Wow. Update. I now have two stories and my newest is called The Piano. Its actually part of a project for my Gothic Literature class. Its due the 22nd of May, 2008, so I'll probably turn it all in before I get a chance to put it up, but I thought it would be fun to put something new up.

If you read and like Mark, my other story, don't worry, I haven't forgotten about it; I'm just really busy right now. I'm a senior in High School and I have like, a week left of actual school, so I'm exhausted and I haven't had a lot of time to get things up. Thanks for reading.

Another update. Once again, I apologize that I haven't updated Mark at all. I'm still finishing typing up chapter two and writing chapter three. Part of my problem is my guy/ 'boyfriend'/inspiration for the story sort of backed off me a little and I lost some of my motivation when he did. So, I promise that while its going slower than it was before, I will not abandon it. I'm also working on a story to tide the nonexistent-faithful-readers-I-like-to-believe-I-have over about...well it's kind of hard to explain really, but it's called Voices in my Head, and no; it isn't about a crazy person. I hope everyone's summer is going well. I myself am doing a lot of reading to keep myself from dying of boredom. As writer's block plagues me yet again, I hope that all you writers out there can stay as free of it as I'd like to be and have a great summer!

Ok, I'm working on chapter four of Mark. I've lost a little of my motivation because the guy who was my muse for it, my boyfriend and I broke up; it was months back, but I realize that I haven't mentioned it. I'm trying to get as much done as possible since I start college in less than a month. I have so much to do, so I'm trying to put a priority on Mark and getting it finished before I get too busy for it. Love you my nonexistant faithful readers.

I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.
I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.
I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.
We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.
I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.
I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.
I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.
I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.
We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.
I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.
I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.
I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.
I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.
I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.
I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I did not have to always deal with society hating me.
I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.
I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.
I am the person who is afraid of telling his loving Christian parents he loves another male.

Re-post this if you believe homophobia is wrong. Please do your part to end it

I found this on Rose of Truth 's bio and I really do believe what it says. I'm bisexual, I have a lot of gay and lesbian friends. So please do repost this if you believe homophobia is wrong.

Hey everybody! I'd like to thank everyone who's been faithfully following Natalie and I have several things that I'm working on for update soon. This week is my Spring break and I wanted to let you all know that I will be offline for this week. If I'm on at all it will be only shortly, but I plan to be back online around the 29th. thanks so much for following Natalie and I hope to update things then. This includes Mark, Natalie and Voices in my Head. But you never know, something new might appear as well!
