Author has written 14 stories for Alpha Force, and Faerie Wars Chronicles.
Take a look at my avatar and you've basically got me pegged: dog person with really crap eyesight.
If you want to know a bit more, then, well, I suppose I could toss some dot points out there:
-My name's Em
-I'm twenty one years old
-I'm an animal attendant with AWLQ, which is basically the best job in the world
-I write, train dogs, attempt to take photographs and spend a lot of weekends at agility trials
-I'm studying a Certificate in Zoo Keeping; no prizes for guessing what I want to be when I'm an actual proper grown up
-I'm either incredibly mature or incredibly immature; there is no chance of healthy middle ground here
-I'm predisposed to be sarcastic, cynical and blunt but there are pleasant- at times borderline gushing- bones in my body and they like to have a say in responses, too
-I'm a bit of a control freak
-I like to write things with lots of plot points, lots of puzzle pieces and lots of threads that end up connected or at least tangled
-I may be a teensy tiny bit obsessed with dialogue
-And commas 'cause, you know, they're kinda the cutest punctuation out there
-I'm not so good at transitioning dialogue to action to description and back again, but I'm trying to muddle it out
-If you put the word "bear" after the word "koala", I will track you down and make you regret it
I'm up for beta reading pretty much anything, but be warned that I am a more "hard core" editor and I don't just stick to checking spelling and grammar; if you're not open to constructive criticism, or feel particularly precious about what you've written, don't ask me for help because you won't be happy :) If you are keen on a beta who wants to get more into the nitty gritty aspects of writing, send me a message! I love to share what I've learnt along my own writing journey, and am more than happy to go over drafts, help fix plot holes, compile very verbose emails chocker block full of tips and ideas and lessons... If I know something, I'm happy to share it (and just you try and stop me, lol).
I stick to the Alpha Force section on here because it's a small community where pretty much everyone knows (being a relative term, of course, since this is the murky waters of the inter webs) each other and it's kind of the only fan fiction I'm somewhat capable of writing.
I have a few stories for the aforementioned section in the pipeline, and I would love to eventually get them all done and onto this site, despite the fact that I lay down an ultimatum that this would be my last year focusing on anything other than my original works. I have an alternative beginning challenge in the planning stages, a Reunion challenge in the even less developed planning stages, and another very tentative story swimming around my head that sort of takes bits and pieces from everything and throws it into one melting pot.
