Author has written 3 stories for Baby Sitters Club.
Part of my last profile update (May 29, 2016):
(April 14, 2017) Obviously, I did not start posting "soon" and still haven’t; the story I mentioned has taken a backseat to more recent losses and the resultant chaos. Also, it’s unlikely that I’ll ever post non-Harry Potter fanfiction here again; in addition to more or less losing the motivation to do anything, even writing, I lost interest in a lot of the things I used to like to write about. That may not be a grief-caused change; it might just be that I’ve grown up (yikes — but I guess it had to happen eventually).
I do have a story in progress, but I would like to complete it before I begin posting — the last thing I want to do is post a story that I lose interest in writing after a few chapters (I really haven’t been quite right in the head since my father’s death; focusing is sometimes very difficult), or to rush through writing the story because I feel I’m ‘overdue’ in updating. When I last posted fanfiction here (almost eight years ago) it was an easy escape, mostly due to the fact that nothing in my life was wrong yet (I need a Time-Turner; I wouldn’t mind being eighteen again) and the series I chose to write for had a fairly small fanbase here — I can’t say the same for Harry Potter, and I’d like to get my story in decent shape (an especially difficult task, considering the series itself is so much more complicated than the Baby-sitters Club and sometimes my brain just blanks while I’m writing and even reading) before I post even the first chapter. I’ll admit that I’m a little nervous about returning to writing fanfiction, but I’m also looking forward to it. In 2009, I was writing and posting a chapter a day, and rather confidently; I don’t think I really proofread my own work . . . I’m pretty embarrassed by my old stories; I’ve really just left them here for nostalgia’s sake. I miss that confidence, but I also feel that my writing has improved as I’ve changed (and matured), and I wouldn’t trade that growth for much . . . not that I can, anyway.
For my friends: I’m still here. I’m still reading, even if I don’t always have the words to review. I’m still working on my writing, and on ‘myself’. I don’t know when I’ll post a new story, but I haven’t given up. This massive profile update is more or less my first step back into the (online) fanfiction world . . . and . . . that’s it for now. :)
