|Wow! My first Daily Deviation! Thank you all so so much!|
I would really appreciate if you were to check out this link to a story I have finally had the confidence to share with anyone who cares :/
Despite what some may think, I am no as confident as I seem and I take criticism very hard and personally!
So this is something I have been trying to write since I was about 12 years old so for the past 5/6 years and every time I have tried, I've decided my writing simply isn't good enough so have abandoned it and gone off the idea. One draft I wrote got up to 50,000 words which is about 25,000 less words than Harry Potter and the Philosophers' Stone :/
If you would be able to give me some feedback then either on here or on FictionPress itself.
I will try to remember to update!
The chapters are uneven, disjointed and it seems like the story is being written from half way through which it kind of is! There is a prequel, I just haven't got round to writing it just yet!
The story is also heavily inspired by an un-diagnosed sleep disorder I have and have had since the 25th December 2009. Basically, I go to sleep in this world and wake up in another. The dreams have carried on night after night without fail, picking up where the other leaves off from the night before. The dreams are sometimes horrific, sometimes boring, sometimes downright scary and others, some of the best memories I have.
It is also the explanation to my nickname "Storm". When I woke up in this dream the first time, everyone referred to me as Storm. As I spent more time in my dream world, the name Storm seemed more natural than my real name so I adopted it in this world.
Anyway, enough rambling from me!
There are two chapters up so far which add up to about 800 words. Please review and if I get 3-5 reviews of some sort, I will post up the next chapter!
|"Hey there! Just wanted to say thanks for a lovely shoot last Friday. It was a real joy working with you. For someone so young you are amazingly mature in your approach to your modelling and interaction pre shoot, on shoot and post shoot is truly fantastic. I suspect you will go far with that attitude. Really inspiring. Thanks for tolerating the rain, the sea and the dirty forest floor! I think we got some great shots I am really looking forward to working on. Thanks again for everything and do hope can work together again before too long. Cheers D" Drew Hart, photographer [link]. Worked with on July 6th 2012|
"Storm, is a natural when it comes to modeling. She knows what she wants out of her shoots and gives 100% everytime. I have had the fantastic opportunity to shoot with her on multiple occasions and she is always well prepared and ready to shoot. She always provides me with great images not to mention how much fun she is to shoot with!" Paul Castleton, photographer. Worked with on many seperate occasions starting from April 2012
"Storm is wonderful to work with because she has the ablity to portray a wide variety of looks, and is able to take direction very well. Storm is also very creative and will take on new ideas whilst adding her own unique style to every shot." Tim Ladd (Photographer) timladdphotography.com

Storm has a huge range of poses to offer so if you are new to the world of Photography Storm is the kind of Pro Model you require. Storm suits multiply styles and is able to adapt quickly.
