Once upon a time, there lived a beautiful fairy princess named Nellie. She had curly, blond hair and bright blue eyes. But most beautiful of all were her wings: shimmering sapphire and turquoise and aquamarine, every shade of blue imaginable and sparkly like a waterfall on a sunny spring day.

My blog is my place to explore the world, starting with the bizarre place that is my own mind. Poetry, journaling, fiction, carefully edited or wordvomited straight to the internet, this is my place to be me. Or Fred. I can always be Fred, because sometimes I like to be Fred.
When I’m not Fred, you can call me Maria. Maria Celeste. I’d love to share my real name with ya’ll, but I write too much autobiographical stuff to not have some amount of privacy on my blog.
My writing can be all over the map, so take a look at my categories. I dabble in poetry, rant about my life as a 20-year-old liberal arts and engineering student, and reserve a fiction section for the stories that didn’t actually happen.
Oh, and about feedback. It’s the best thing ever. Comments make my day, and I try to reply thoughtfully to each and every one of them. Granted, it helps if you give me something to work with, but I like the “Loved this!” ones too.
I welcome constructive criticism, so never feel guilty critiquing my work. I look to improve with each and every piece I write.
