Hi! I’m Carolyn Matthews! I am an enthusiastic writer of dystopian fiction. I also write fantasy. I started writing when I was 5, and have been addicted ever since. I am also a murderer-
Of my characters. In the past two books I have worked on, the main character dies (of execution of murder) in the last chapter. However, they do not die hopeless deaths, they are martyred.
I also write prose. I love it! I love making words rhyme and fit together like an intricately cut puzzle.
I’m sort of doing bullet points right now. Not quite sure.
ANYWAYS, I also LOVE LOVE LOVE my Heavenly Father. I tell him about everything and he listens in his semi-quiet and loving way. God is amazing and I hope you agree.
I don’t know what else to write; I”m not very good at introductions. I typically just yell out, “HEY I’M CAROLYN!” with a big, friendly smile. However, I can’t quite do that here! However, I shall say,

@carolyn-matthews Amen to loving our God 😀 And welcome to SE!
And, well, I guess I can say I’ve greeted a murderer before 😛 That fact about your books sounds fascinating, though. Do you intend to do the same thing with your next book?

@literatureforthelight @the-fledgling-artist I am planning on doing so. My current book is dystopia where the government has begun to fear Christians and kills them all. However, two escape: one by divine intervention and one by complete ignorance. Together, they strive to make a difference, but do it in a very not cliche way.

@carolyn-matthews, *sneaks in a weak late* Your story sounds cool! “)
I’ve killed characters before, or at least the story ends sad. But I don’t know about some of these other WIPs.
How long do you intend to have your story (if you already figured that out yet)? My WIP right now is 12812 words right now, though it will be much longer. I’m planning for it to be a longer story. The point is something along the lines of listen to what people have to say, but don’t do what they do.
You cold use the Pharisees in the Bible for an example. What the Pharisees said was right and true, though they most definitely didn’t always act like that.

@andrew idk how long it will be, probably pretty decently wide if I can keep from rushing it
