I'm in the process of writing a novel (I know, at age 16, I don't have much experience) but I'm in a college English class and, believe you me, it helps a lot. It's a wierd fantasy, modern epic, but it has circulated around my school and, apparantly, I have fans I don't even know.
I *love* Alan Rickman! He is one of the most talented men in the world and his voice is...*starry eyes*...well, let's just say it's sexy enough to be the voice of God. I love to play piano, it's my yoga, and I love reading. The author I'm obsessed with now is Dumas. I usually tend to like older guys, which people sort of find creepy, but success and sophistication is what attracts me.
As for Harry Potter? I think he's a prick now (excuse my french) but, honostly, in the 5th book, he watched Snape's memory and didn't even apologize! That made me so mad so my sympathies lie with Snape.
If you're on Myspace look up Mikayla and my picture is a Nightmare Before Christmas cd cover.
