Author has written 2 stories for Kamen Rider, Detective School Q, and Tumbling/タンブリング.
My philosophy: Writing is a craft, a skill that must constantly be honed and improved. I do not say "perfected" because such a pinnacle would imply an eventual definite limit. The power of language is limitless. Good writers acknowledge not only the strengths of their tales but also of their weaknesses and are gracious in accepting suggestions and criticism for the readers attentive and invested enough to make their voices known. When the writer is alone in his/her mind when he/she sits down to weave their story, that very moment when writer sets pen to paper, that is the moment of magic. Ultimately, writing is not a lonely pursuit, it is a collaborative journey.
Thoughts regarding the writing of fan-fiction: I think it's wonderful that such a unique genre of literature exists. Fan-fiction gives us a chance to experiment with the canon universes, explore the big "what ifs," and re-interpret and deepen our understanding of our favorite characters. I frown upon the individuals who taint the potential of fan-fiction's integrity with gratuitous self-gratification through the means of disregarding the conventions of the English language, namely those who do not even bother to proofread their work for grammar, punctuation, and spelling mistakes before posting.
About canon-verse and AUs: There are sticklers out there who say that fan-fiction should only work off of canon material. I am not one of these people. AUs, though trickier to pull off, are immensely rewarding to read if they are done well.
One Fic At a Time Policy: There are many writers out there who are talented and ambitious enough to work on multiple fics at the same time. Seldom actually end up finishing all fics in a timely manner. While I may take a detour to work on a one-shot, drabble, or short multi-chaptered fix, once I have started an epic-sized fix, I endeavor to finish it before starting another one. There's nothing that annoys a reader more (besides a badly written fic) than a fic that's been unfinished for more than several years. Life does happen, though, so such happenings may be completely out of the writer's control.
Addendum: This policy applies when I am not working or at school. Or if I change fandoms. I fandom-hop a lot, though.
Note: Updates during the summer will more likely occur around once a week. All other chapter updates outside of this time period may range from once a week to once a month. Be patient. Be courteous. Be kind. Fanfiction is not my entire world and if there's anything writing has taught me thus far, it is that the big world out there is worth living.
