Author has written 1 story for CSI: New York.
Life has been very busy lately, not leaving me much time for writing the next chapter of my story. I know where I want to take the story in the next chapter, I just haven't had the chance to write it. I have had some time, however, to collaborate with hope4sall on the story Eleven Years. I'm writing Mac's perspective in the story. Its been fun, especially the letter writing. Its like we're writing actual letters, and then we have to respond to what the other person has written. So, I hope you readers enjoy this as much as we are!
I know some of you may be getting anxious for Mac and Sydney to hook-up, lol, but I'm going to have to ask you to sit tight and be patient with me and the characters. Remember, it wasn't until the end of season one that Mac was ready to even consider dating again, and it wasn't until the beginning of season three that we saw him in a comitted relationship. But don't worry, in the next few chapters there will be more and more focus on their relationship.
The close of chapter six marks the end of my pre-series chapters. Chapter seven will begin a few weeks after the show premiered. We'll be moving into canon storylines after that. So yay! Things are moving right along :o)
My avatar, or rather mangatar, is what I picture Sydney looking like in my head, but less cartoony, lol.
For those of you who missed it, Between The Living and The Dying is a rewrite of my first story, Breathe Again. After writing five chapters of Breathe Again (I only posted four), I decided my writing left something to be desired and went back to the drawing board.
I am a review whore, lol. But who isn't? We all want to know what others think of our writing. And to be honest, if you don't like my story, I'm just as interested in knowing that as I am if you did like it. A bad review is better than no review, in my opinion. That doesn't mean I'm giving you carte blanche to be mean and nasty, but if you have some constructive criticism for me I'd be open to hearing it.
In Case You're Wondering:
Why did I start my story way back before CSI:NY even premiered? As I have previously stated, it crosses over with JAG. I don't want to give too much away at this point, but there is a particular JAG episode which I'll refer to a couple chapters from now. This episode is from season seven (2001-2002). It plays a pivotal role in why Sydney came to New York when she did. I suppose I could have made my own time line, but as it relates to her and Mac's relationship, I thought it best to stick with what was already established. Also, as I'm introducing a new OC, I felt it best to start at the beginning, rather than jumping in at the middle and acting as if she'd always been there.
The title for my story, Between The Living And The Dying, comes from a line in Sarah McLachlan’s song World On Fire (well, it’s actually “amongst the living and the dying"). I think it's a good theme song for both Mac and Sydney.
I like to write, but most of my writing is usually non-fictional in nature, editorials, reviews, etc. I'm pretty dry, witty and sarcastic and find it easy to exhibit that in my writing. I'm not as experienced when it comes to fictional writing, but I'm giving it a whirl anyway. I have these ideas and stories in my head, but putting them down on paper always seems like such a daunting task. I hate staring at a computer screen trying to figure out what to write. I'm so glad I'm done with college and don't "have" to do that anymore. Now I can just do it for fun.
I prefer angst over happy endings. You can draw so much more emotion out of angst than when a couple lives happily ever after. Once a couple is together and happy and they've got everything they want, then where do you go from there? It just gets boring. All that said, I'm not sure if my story will have a happy ending or not. I've got a long ways to go though before I have to make that decision.
