The Gates of Horn and Ivory

Two Gates the silent House of Sleep adorn; Of polish'd Iv'ry this, that of transparent Horn:
True Visions thro' transparent Horn arise; Thro' polish'd Iv'ry pass deluding Lies.

    Seriously. I've been submitting stories, which has just ignited my idea factory in my noggin. I'm still getting rejected, but the one story has been popular and gotten lots of positive feedback. I've also gotten requests to resubmit, which is cool. So maybe by this time next year, I'll be an official author haha.

    So far I plan to publish under a pseudonym, but I am planning some "Slice of life" essays I don't want to be linked back to my story name, so I guess I get to pick two haha. It adds a bit of protection so my dad can read the stories, and I can publish the essays without fear of him going ballistic and trying to hurt my mom. I'm going to change some details to throw people off too, but they'll be more or less what's happened. Because I know I needed someone to believe me, and I would have loved to know I wasn't alone, and like, be the change you want to see and all that. My story doesn't make me popular with my family, but it's what happened.

    Whew. When I get something published I will DEFINITELY come back here haha. Um, I have kind of abandoned my bug thread as it doesn't like my pictures anymore? So that's why you guys haven't been getting your fix lol. Maybe it's the Chromebook, the damn wonky thing is weird.

    Anyways. I am sitll in school, I have a 3.5 gpa currently, going thorugh English which is like ezmode haha, and I'm trying to kick start my career while life continues to hate me. But I'm here, I'm trying, and I'm not letting my mom's family get the last word.
