PitchWars Mentee Profile: 2015

Hello fellow PitchWars Mentors!

I decided that I should make a little profile about myself just in case any of you are brave enough to research more about me! :)

Well first is first.

My name's Kai (It's my nickname), and I write ya fantasy novels. I started writing in high school because let's face it, high school was hell!!! And I needed to escape from the hell I was living in. And I've never stopped writing since. I've written three novels, and *hopefully* the third is the charm.

Some things you should know about me is that I LOVE cats. Well, and all animals. But cats!






My absolute favorite genre is fantasy. I can't read anything without it! Or write anything without it!

My favorite books/series are:
-The Shiver Trilogy by Maggie Stiefvater
(Or anything by Maggie Stiefvater, to be honest!)
-The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
-The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
-The Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan
-The Maze Runner by James Dashner

My favorite TV shows…

Teens: Anxiety & Depression

Hey there, my lovelies.

Long time no see.

You know what sucks the most from still living at home with your parents? The anxiety. My God, it's awful.

Any teenager knows how it feels. It's the worst feeling in the entire world. Well okay, maybe not every teenager. Some teenagers are graced with everything they could ever want, but for the lucky fellers like me, hah, yeah that ain't gonna happen.

So anxiety, yeah, it sucks real bad. I get it over anything and everything. I worry constantly and wonder when I will ever get to the point in my life where I can be free.

I know, I'm not even 21 and I'm talking about being free. But I'm not your average 20-year-old. I seriously want my own house in the next few years and to have my life on the right path.

No, I'm not in college. Nothing about college even tempts me. Yeah, you go to school for four to five years and then get stuck with a 9-5 job for the rest of your life. Doesn't that just sound dandy? 

And no, I'm n…

Ulcers, Painkillers, & PMS

Hey everyone! (Warning long post ahead!)

So I know you may wonder why I drop off the face of the planet for a few months and then reappear only to disappear again. If you've read any of my posts, you will know that I suffer a lot of health problems. Kinda sucks since I'm so young! But I guess poor eating habits will get anyone.

I just wanted to finally explain what is exactly wrong with me, and why I drop off this blog for months. I feel like you guys need an explanation.

Obviously for years I've been trying to figure out what's wrong with me. I suffer from digestive issues that make it very very hard for me to gain weight (I'm borderline underweight). I always thought I was crazy half the time as I grew up, that maybe I just wasn't meant to gain weight.

I started suffering from rosacea about 6 years ago and along with that came the awful PMS. And I mean, God awful. My periods often put me in the worst misery to the point where I cry for three hours on the first da…
