Reason for Joining FF: There may come a time when I decide to publish a story, but for the now I plan to do no more than write honest, un-biased reviews. For anyone whose story I give a bad review, listen to my criticism and decide whether or not you want to store any of it away, otherwise don't take it personally. For anyone whose story I give a good review, know that I am always truthful in my reviews and that if I give your story a good review, then I really do like it. I will also make Favorite Author and Favorite Story lists eventually.
Likes: I like stories that are detailed and well-written with good plot lines and little to no spelling or grammer errors.
Dislikes: I dislike when stories have so many spelling or grammer errors that it is hard for me to get into the story, and I really, REALLY dislike when authors feel like they have to use swearing or profanity to make their story interesting. Some of the best books I have ever read have been swear word and profanity-free.
A LITTLE ABOUT ME
Favorite Books: "The Clan of the Cave Bear" by Jean M. Auel is my all-time favorite book. It was simply fantastic. It combined fun, action, adventure, and suspense all into one great, tear-jerking novel about primitive times. Even though it remains far above other books I have read, I still have a few more favorites: "A Child Called 'It'", "The Chronicles of Narnia - The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe", "The Giver", "Swimming to Antarctica", plus the light-reads "Hoot" and "Saffy's Angel".
Favorite Authors: Jean M. Auel and Lurlene McDaniel. Both are descriptive, emotional, basically exceptional authors.
Favorite Movies: "Spirited Away" and "Princess Mononoke" are anime worth watching. I immensely enjoyed them both. I was also pleased with the book-to-movie "The Chronicles of Narnia - The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe". They really did it justice.
Favorite Actors/Actresses: Reese Witherspoon, Bill Murray, Adam Sandler, and John Heder in no particular order. All are great actors and are so much fun to watch.
Favorite Genre of Music: My favorite genre of music is rock, but only "good" rock. And by "good" rock, I mean rock music where the lyrics are well-written, the music is catchy, the lead singer does more than just scream into the microphone, and (if you remember, the same goes for stories) the song writer doesn't feel as though they MUST use swearing or profanity to get their point across or to appeal to audiences. Swearing and profanity are a very cheap way to sell music.
Favorite Artist: My favorite artist is Evanescence. They are so talented. Their lyrics are moving, their music is catchy, the vocals are fantastic, and (so far...excluding "Anywhere But Home") they have been able to appeal to millions without using swearing or profanity. Their music also has this "crave-factor" where I find myself going through withdrawl when I can't listen to "Bring Me to Life" or "My Immortal". Definitely, definitely my favorite artist. But I also enjoy Heart and Queen, as well as some Led Zeppelin and Supertramp.
Favorite Album: "Fallen" by Evanescence. Enough said. I also like "Crime of the Century" by Supertramp and Heart's self-titled album "Heart".
Favorite Songs: Everything off of "Fallen". (And I mean EVERYTHING!) Plus the duet between Amy Lee (of Evanescence) and Seether, "Broken". "If Looks Could Kill", "What About Love", and "Never" by Heart, "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen, and "Drops of Jupiter" by Train.

That is a bit about me; I might consider adding more later. But for now, see you on Fan Fiction!
