Author has written 5 stories for Final Fantasy VIII, Naruto, and Fullmetal Alchemist.

Update 24/11/10

I randomly decided to check my FanFic page after over a year away... and was very surprised to see that I am still getting hits after all this time! Surprised, and grateful. The work I've published on here means alot to me and I put alot of work into it- so I'm glad people are still reading it. I'm not quite sure where I stand now- Somewhere I Belong is a story I feel very strongly about, I care a great deal about completing it, I'm just not sure that's possible after so long away from it. I put the first chapter up 3 and a half years ago, and my last update was 2 years ago!!! Crazy! Apart from that, it's been over a year since I've written at all; whatever used to motivate my writing is dormant now. I'm not sure I have the energy to get that back, I'm not even sure it's possible to. But part of me hopes I do; it's the only thing I've ever truly cared about.

Update 28/09/09

Must start writing again! I'm getting really out of practice, and think it's going to be tough to get into the flow of S.I.B again after so long away from it. I find working with the general public always kills my ability to write, but I ned to get around that somehow. I'm going to start doing some writing exercises to limber up my writing muscles over the next few weeks and see how it goes, then I'll be back to continue S.I.B! I quite miss writing from Seifer's p.o.v, he's such a fun and challenging character to write with.

Natersby's Progress Log

08:06 My alarm goes off. I thump it until the noise stops, then roll over and mutter that if I don't get more sleep, I'll never write anything worth while...

08:37 The front door slams as my room mate leaves. I'll now have a few hours peace and quiet to write in... so I roll over and snuggle into a more comfortable position.

09:18 I yawn and blearily glance at the clock, realizing I've had around 8 hours sleep. It's mot my fault I lost track of time playing my DS last night! Needing to get up, I watch clouds go by.

09:45 I over fill the kettle and bemoan how much time is wasted just making breakfast.

09:52 I put an episode of "FullMetal Alchemist" on so I have something to watch while I eat. Cereal and coffee are gone before the opening credits finish.

10:29 I decide I can't possibly concentrate on writing in this messy atmosphere and go on a cleaning spree. I move things around.

11:16 Is it time for elevensies or luncheon? May aswell watch another episode while I'm eating...

11:46 I move everything back where it started.

12:32 I'm too cold to focus and put the heating on.

13:01 I sit at my computer desk and decide it's too hot to write now. I turn off the heating and wait for it to cool down.

13:12 I come up with the hypothesis that I have writer's block, and decidethe best way to solve the problem is to write a long diary entry exploring the difference between writer's block and procrastion.

13:27 WHAT? I didn't do that to procrastinate! I ave writer's block, damnit!

13:35 No point starting now, Neighbours is on soon...
