Author has written 2 stories for Twilight.
I am part of Unicorns Unlimited, which is how I discovered the world of Twific, and Wide Awake was my gateway drug. Rock.
I am a writer and editor IRL, and I write about the driest subjects imaginable, so I'm hoping Twific will be an outlet for creativity.
At first, I was reluctant. Now I am thinking of trying to write a Master's thesis on the well-written lemon.
Here is a little something I've learned about fanfiction:
One day I became very verklempt when an original idea I'd had for Twific was used by someone else (see: Adoraklutz--who is lovely--for counsel on how to approach the matter.). I messaged my bosom friend,
She then informed me, "While I understand your attachment, it is, after all, fanfiction, and you've kind of already stolen it to begin with... ;)" It was then I realized... I was having a Mugatu moment.
You see, while Mugatu's statement was true, he invented neither the piano-key nor the necktie. So, someone should have stepped in and told him to put on his big girl panties and STFU.
Anyway, I hope each of you has a friend who would do the same for you. And remember, at the end of the day (or wee hours of the night, when I am writing this), it's still only fanfiction. _
Things I like include: tea, my husband, knitting, shoes, cheese, YA lit, handkerchiefs, soft grass, old suitcases, that sound guitars make when fingers slide between chords, green things, rocky beaches, roundabouts, and people with accents.
Thanks to all who have read and reviewed my first one-shot/fic, Darkbloom! You make RPattz do his happy fire-hydrant dance:. I have been working on subsequent chapters.
Darkbloom was recently recommended on!
I entered an ExB one-shot, Phoenix, in the With A Burning Heart winter olympics story contest, and was floored when it was voted first place in the open poll and selected as the judges' choice. It also received a special mention for featuring the 2010 Paralympics. Thanks so much to all who read and reviewed and voted. I will be posting the story here after I rework it a little bit, and I have a few ideas floating around in my brain for a follow-up chapter.
