About Liz

Biography

Updated: 01-09-15
My name is Liz, I'm twenty-one years old and an aspiring writer.
I am currently at university studying for an English degree. My hope is that this will enable me to take my passion for writing to the next level and one day become a published author.

EXTRAS:
• I speak French and Spanish. In my opinion French is the most beautiful language, so flowing and sensual. The language of love
• At the age of 12 I started playing the Violin, but for the past 4 years I have been playing the guitar, both electric and acoustic.
• I am a photographer. I'm just completing my Photography A-Level at the moment but have been interested in the art form since I was little.
• As is probably inevitable with someone who spends so much time in front of a computer, I am a geek. I admit it!
I got into Web & Graphics Design a while ago and help out a lot of people with design work now.
• I love art and architecture. I am particularly taken with several art movements specifically; those being Italian Renaissance, Pre-Raphaelite and Impressionism. A couple of my favourite pieces are 'Cafe Terrace at Night' Vincent van Gogh (1888) and 'San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk' Claude Monet (1908).
• One of my favourite quotes is 'Carpe diem quam minimum credula postero' it is a phrase from the Latin poem by Horace which roughly translates to "Seize the Day, putting as little trust as possible in the next." I believe that these are words that everyone should aspire to; life is short and you never know what tomorrow will bring.

I hope you enjoy my stories and would love to hear any feedback you wish to give.

Stay safe and stay happy.

Interests:
I am a huge lover of music, (of many different genre's) and am rarely seen without a pair of earphones and my iPod.
The phrase 'Party Animal' comes to mind, but really I'm just a very social person.
I am equally happy cutting up the dance floor in a club, or snuggled under a blanket on the beach gazing at the stars.
I love to read, to write and enjoy anything that gets your creative juices flowing.
Favorite Books:
I read a lot of fiction and enjoy any novels with dark plots and complex character studies.
Other interests include legal fiction (John Grisham), horror/thriller (Stephen King), human history and mythology.
Favorite Authors:
Oh god! So many to choose from. I couldn't possibly.
Favorite Movies:
My favourite movie at the moment is Django Unchained, an excellent film.
I am a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino, he is a fantastic writer/director and I can't get enough of the cult classic genre. Pulp Fiction is excellent.
Gangster films of course! Godfather I & II, Goodfellas, Casino.
I am also a fan of horror movies believe it or not - probably stems from my dad's passion for them.
Zombies, Vampires, Werewolves; you name it, they're all good in my book
Favorite Music:
Rock, R&B, Soul, Motown; just about everything.
Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Four Tops, Ray Charles, Led Zeppelin, The Who, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, The Eagles, Bob Marley, AC/DC, Moby, Coldplay, Linkin Park, Dead By Sunrise, Red, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Adele, Alex Clare, Foo Fighters, Hoobastank, Muse, Oasis, Paramore, Pendulum, 30 Seconds To Mars, David Guetta, Paul Oakenfold, Professor Green...

Topic: Anyone here want to offer their input on a book cover for a charity anthology?
Posted: 01 Sep 2015 02:45

Anyone here want to offer their input on a book cover for a charity anthology? It's an upcoming anthology to benefit cancer, as you can see...and the editor is looking for input on the possible covers...

I can tell you that I like three of these, but haven't really narrowed it down yet...just got this tonight...Nos. 3, 4, and 6 caught my eye though...any input here would be nice...thanks...

Purely from a design aspect, I think covers three and six hit the mark.

One and two look a little too generic to me. Four looks more like a writing guide with some ribbons photoshopped on, and five is just a little plain. Too much grey to catch the eye.

My 2 cents.

Hi everyone!

Some of you will already know me from the 'other place' but for those of your that don't, nice to meet you <img src="/images/emoticons/hello.gif" alt="hello2">

I joined StoriesSpace on a recommendation and will be sharing with you some of my stories and poetry. I'm currently at college studying English Literature (amongst other things) and would love to become a professional writer one day.

Stop by my profile and say hello any time, I'm always around.

Have a lovely day.

Santa Shot My Dad

"It's not what it looks like," he said as I walked in. Ever since I was little I’d wanted to meet Santa, but silently sneaking down the stairs on Christmas Eve to find him standing over my father’s body was not how I’d pictured it. "You’ve kill my dad!" I cried as I rushed over to him. A glass of milk was spilled on the floor and chocolate chip cookies lay scattered like my broken hopes...

When

When you can’t eat,  can't sleep,  can't breathe without them. When your chest tightens up  and it feels as if a hand has reached up inside your chest,  squeezing your heart between cold fingers.  When your eyes sting  because there’s no more tears left to cry. When all you want is better times  but know that they’re gone forever,  like a memory that will never fade,  like...

Nosferatu Immortalis

On a cold dark night a figure stood, Pale face shrouded in darkened hood, Statuesque, as though carved from wood; No beauty held the night sky. As pale as soapstone, his damp cold skin, No breath to see nor heartbeat within, A tear rolled down from cheek to chin; To stand alone and cry. The sobbing, such a sorrowful tune, Witnessed only by the resolute moon, Release he wished and...

The End Of Things

Their happiness taunts me, the cruelest of jokes If only they knew how I felt. My heart in pieces, just a shell of a man Cursing God, for the cards that were dealt. May your heart be broken a thousand times May you drown in a sea of tears. For only those, who have loved and lost Can know of those terrible fears. At losing a loved one, their soul mate for life And being left, so terribly...
