I'm a jack of all trades when it comes to IT. I've dabbled in Web dev, network design and systems administration, but what I really want to do is research.

I enjoy writing short stories, taking chances, making mistakes and getting messy.

comment What does “telling and not showing” mean?
It's especially important to note that we also do critiques! So if you give us a passage that someone has called "weak", we would be happy to help!

comment Is having a specific town for a setting in a young-adult novel a bad thing?
That's why I made it, but alas, it seems to be lacking in quality required to earn a raffle ticket. :p

comment How explicit can violence and sex be in a YA novel?
I'm going to write an actual answer, but I just wanted to say that I really want to read this story.

Alternatively, if you want, you can send the code to me and I'll upload it. My e-mail is listed in my profile.

Would you mind uploading it to GitHub? I know perl and I'm quite used to reading code with no documentation, although a few comments would be appreciated.

comment How can I catch more errors when I proofread?
I had a program that did this for me when I wrote in French called Antidote. Maybe there is an equivalent for English?

I don't have enough insight to add a separate answer, but I would like to add on to the second point. The fact that you are using the main character's point of view means that you can also use their opinion as a summary for an enumeration. Instead of stating all these features about her, you could just say she looks almost vampiric or something along those lines. You're usually quite fond of symbolism and I think you can apply it here with the character description.
