Hello and welcome to my profile, I'm Umi Pryde, but you can just all me Umi. I go by this name online rather than my real name.
I had back surgery for my scoliosis May of 2007, I still suffer from severe chronic pain and it affects my health and mentality greatly. I write whenever I can, usually in journals first. Longer stories will always be written down, in need of typing, rather than a short one chapter story which I may just sit and write up on the computer.
UPDATE NOTICE: Fall 2017
Working on a lot of new updates, that I really want to polish up and get posted between now and the end of the year. These include the final chapters to 'By the Minute' and 'Morning Discovery' as well as the next chapters for Love Me Days, and Seeing Past the Darkness. I have several oneshots I am typing up for various fandoms from my journals and even some new stories in progress that I want to make sure I have several chapters already typed before I post so that I can hopefully begin a steady stream of updates.
I have also joined the Archive of Our Own website and will be posting several of my finished stories/oneshots on that website as well. So long as my health doesn't decline and I can keep up on my household chores I have begun to set aside some "free/me time" to just relax and either read/write/ or video game. I will admit to being rather engrossed in the Dragon Age fandom as of late due to my best friend gifting me Dragon Age: Inquisition, and it has been a source of inspiration for writing new fics, but also my wanting to go back to those I have yet to finish typing up and posting up online here. Beyond fanfiction, readers must realize, I have my own original works I have focused on. Several aren't anything I wish to share as of yet, but I have a couple things I want to one day get published and have been dedicating my time I do find myself able to write, working on them. Thus, plenty journal entries of my fanfiction have yet to make it onto the computer and posted.
I began posting on fanfiction.net 10 years ago and if all goes well by the end of the year, my first posted multiple chapter story, 'By the Minute' will be given its final 2 chapters along with several chapter updates/edits/re writings. (I have gone and added a few things as well edit and change a few passages here and there, so when I do finally get the story continued, I will be sure to post a notice on the new chapters that old readers might wish to revisit the story to get the finalized version.
Despite what may seem like inactivity or story abandonment, I seriously desire to finally finish my open stories. As I can only sit at a computer for so long, all I ask is patience and understanding as I continue with anew interest in submitting works that I have to work according to my body's timeline, and I have a lot more bad days than I do any semblance of good ones.
Thanks again to everyone who sends me messages and wishes me well with my health. Having chronic back pain is no fun at all, and has taken over my life.
Also, to those who read my Harry Potter fic: Short Sorcerer Scenes, feel free to send me a message or post a comment with scene requests or prompts. _
