Author has written 4 stories for Harry Potter.
I'm an active reader.
I haven't uploaded anything in years, but I am always writing.
why is my profile still here
simple reciprocation. It's only fair since I am reading and reviewing other people stories. Those FanWriters deserve to see who is reviewing them. It might affect their opinion of the review itself.
Why am I not writing
Nothing is being updated for the time being because my heart just breaks whenever I try correct my spelling. I am Dyslexic. I cannot break down words or spell them out, I have to remember them. It's tiring and I am very hard on myself about the numerous mistakes I actually do find.
Sometimes I just delete everything.
I think I do very well for myself. I practice cutting myself some slack. unfortunately, the types of mistakes I don't catch myself making are also the types that spell checkers don't catch. I know the difference between wonder and wonder and were and were and things like that. It is still difficult when I am trying to put my thoughts down on paper.
I am sorry that sometimes can irritate readers.
So why do I write?
I write for fun. I write for my own enjoyment and betterment. I write so I don't forget how to.
Why do I post my imperfect stories online?
I guess I am a sucker for punishment ;). No that's a lie, the bad reviews still hurt. Luckily I don't mind the constructive criticism or even just corrections. I post what I write because it feels wrong not to. Fanfiction is a kind of community and even if no-one reads my stories I know that I wrote them. I put a lot of time, effort and emotion into them. I don't want to lose that.
Your Patience is appreciated.
Your understanding is welcome.
News on stories
They are all old now but they still mean a lot to me. I was just a teenager when these were written.I can't claim that being an adult has improved anything, but I like to think that time has improved me.
Death Row Darling (1992 to 1999)
Complete - but needing a good editing.
What's Done is Done (from 1999 - 2000)
(incomplete) - on hold... there is a lot that I like about this story, but I am thinking of rewriting it with a few huge changes. until I have truly decided I am going to work on the idea that is overtaking it.
This is for those of you who do want something more. It's going to be longer than "Death Row Darling" and it'll take place in 1999/2000 when Voldemort is once and for defeated. there are minor changes which will be apparent in the first chapter. possibly also from 1971 to1978 which was when James Potter, Lily Evans, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew etc. were at Hogwarts. but I suspect that It'll make use of all the original books. Many thanks to J. K. Rowling for letting us play with her characters. Yes, that's a disclaimer. I don't own anything related to Harry Potter. I just use and abuse them.
