Got Tumblr? Good. I've got a blog.
Even if you don’t have Tumblr, you can check my blog for announcements and ask me questions through it that you would like speedier answers to.
wolf08 & writing
I first posted stories on this account long, long ago when I was in junior high school. This was followed by seven years of complete inactivity on this account. But then from a combination of an urge to get back into creative writing and how inspired I felt when the Naruto manga ended, I ended up back here.
To be totally honest with you, creative writing really isn’t my forte. I have been writing as much as I can over the years, but through a combination of work/school responsibilities, journalistic and academic articles took up the bulk of my time and writing energy. But I really missed fiction. And so, in early 2015, on a whim, I took another crack at an old, incomplete story of mine – A Twist in Time (it was only 4-5 chapters long at the time, I believe, and so I scrapped them and started the story over from scratch).
And I was sucked right back in.
Creative writing is my favourite hobby and I am so determined to make time for it and improve my skills. The genres I enjoy writing most are romance, mystery, and adventure.
And since this is a bio, I guess I'll list a few other things I like to do: listen to music (I’m a movie soundtrack / epic instrumental music nut), play soccer, run, read, watch movies (especially superhero / action / adventure), watch hockey, make art (I’m not very good but it's fun), drink herbal tea, practice yoga, research, eat pizza, eat sushi, and taste different craft beers.
I have a Bachelor of Arts with a double-major in Psychology and Communications and I am currently a Master of Science candidate in Health Studies. The reason I mention this here is because elements of my academic background will probably crop up in my stories because I am more comfortable writing topics that I am familiar with (I hope to expand my comfort zone as I gain more experience). I have particular interests in mental health, health psychology, knowledge translation, media studies, and public health. My thesis is on promoting physical activity for persons with disabilities and I'm a volunteer personal trainer in an adapted gym.
I only have and probably only ever will write fics that stem from Naruto, just because I’ve grown so comfortable with and attached to the characters. That isn’t to say I won’t ever take a crack at an original story one day, but that will be for a different website, and maybe a different medium.
wolf08 & Naruto
I’ve been a pretty die-hard fan of the Naruto series since I was in junior high school. Like, I remember when the pre-Shippuuden episodes aired on TV here and I would suffer through the crappy English dubs every week because I had this unwarranted fear of getting a computer virus if I watched videos on any website other than YouTube. Thankfully I have overcome this fear.
SasuSaku was and still is my favourite pairing of all time. Sakura is such an admirable and relatable character. She manages to thrive despite her lack of inherent powers, has flaws (many of which she overcomes), and is passionate about health (which, naturally, piques my interest too). And Sasuke is my absolute favourite character for infinite reasons. I just tend to love anti-heroes and I don't think there is a character out there as interesting as his.
I also really like NaruHina, ShikaTema, and NejiTen among other pairings. Kakashi, Gaara, Tsunade, and Shikamaru are a few of the characters I like most, along with Sasuke and Sakura, of course.
Please note that some of my stories are very old (and so the writing style will look dramatically different than it does in newer pieces). I suggest you note the Update Date of my stories before you read them (I, personally, would not read any of my old stories again, but I am also my own worst critic. If you choose to read them, by all means…).
