Author has written 15 stories for Wrestling, A Knight's Tale, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, and Angel.
What can I say? Well, I'm a 23 year old Literature graduate and now journalistwho took an avid interest in books at an early age and has loved them ever since. For as long as I can remember, I have held onto the dream of being a writer (Quickly glossing over the short-lived notions of being an astronaut, princess or Formula 1 driver! heheh XD) There's little that can beat curling up in front of the fire with a hot chocolate and losing yourself in a favourite book - shame it's so hard to find time. I long for the day I can take time out to do just that and honestly say there's nothing else I should be doing ...
As for the sort of stuff I write ... whatever pops into my head really. I also write some fanfics which I can't post here as there isn't a category for them which is partly why I haven't been around much and I've been getting into writing original stuff too. I just love writing, period.
Just some of my favourite things - a constantly changing list. What can I say? I'm fickle ... :p
Movies: The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy, Gladiator, Armageddon, anything by Hitchcock, Sixth Sense, A Knight's Tale, Phonebooth, Pirates Of The Caribbean and probably many, many more I'm overlooking.
TV shows: Lost, Angel, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Tru calling, Eastenders, ER, Desperate Housewives, 24.
Music: Green Day, James Blunt, 3 Doors Down, U2, Matchbox 20, Lifehouseand loads more.
Writers: William Shakespeare (that's the three years of English at uni showing, lol!), J.R.R. Tolkien, Stephen King, Maggie Fury, Joss Whedon, Tony Jordan and too many more to name.
Just some of the best lines around …
Cordelia: Why didn’t you tell me you were half-demon. I thought we agreed secrets are bad.
Cordelia: (disbelievingly) You were so… brave.
Cordelia: "I'm not a sniveling, whinny, little cry-Buffy. I'm the nastiest girl in Sunnydale history. I take crap from no one!"
Angel: Am I intimidating? I mean, do I put people off?
Doyle (to Cordy): All I'm saying is if you and I ever hope to take that cruise to the Bahamas together, we're going to need a lot more clients of means.
Spike: What do you think all this means for that Shanshu bugaboo? If we make it through, does one of us get to be a real boy?
Doyle: You know, there's a lot of people in this city that need helping.
Gunn: You take the 30,000 on the left.
Spike (about Buffy): I've been alive longer than you and dead longer than that. I've seen things you couldn't imagine. I've done things I prefered you didn't. I've never had a reputation for being a thinker. I follow my blood, which doesn't exactly rush in the direction of my brain. So I make a lot of mistakes, a lot of bloody calls. A hundred plus years and there's only one thing I've ever been sure of... you. I'm not asking you for anything when I say I love you. It's not because I want you, or can't have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I've seen your kindness and your strength. I've seen the best and the worst of you and I understand with perfect clarity what you are. You're a hell of a women. You're the one, Buffy.
Buffy (about Dawn): I'm counting on you to protect her.
Giles (about Spike’s chip): There’s some sort of illumination emanating from it. It's blinking.
From Pirates Of The Caribbean
Elizabeth: That's it, then? That's the secret, grand adventure of the infamous Jack Sparrow. You spent three days lying on a beach drinking rum.
From A Knight’s Tale:
Roland: Who are you?
Chaucer: Thank you! Thank you - I'll be here all week!
Chaucer: Oh my giddy aunt.
Chaucer: Uh, are you blind? Didn't you see the flag drop?
Time for writing fictionis pretty scarce right now butit's still the bestform of escapism I know sojust stay tuned - updates will be sporadic but then what's new?
Anyways, massive thanks to everyone has reviewed my stuff so far - it really does mean a lot and all criticism, good and bad, is much appreciated. :)
Despite appearances to the contrary, I haven't abandoned anything but the fic taking most of my attention right now is my newest venture: a fanfic based on the tv series, Lost - I'm loving that show and I'm a massive fan of Charlie! And DriveSHAFT, of course. ;) I'd really, really appreciate any comments on that one 'cos I've put a hell of a lot of effort into it - I haven't even started any other Lost fics and don't intend to until I finish this one! It's called Getting Lost and it's a bit confusing to give a summary of since it kinda takes a similar format to the show and switches between life on the island and life in flashbacks. It focuses on Charlie and his relationship with Claire, but there's wider implications for the other characters since it hints that he knew something would happen to the plane and that he had already dreamt about the island - just go have a look-see, lol!
