Poll: I have two new stories almost ready to begin posting. Which do you think I should post? I'll keep this open for about a month, that's how long it'll take me to finish posting Tabula Rasa and finalize the edits on the two stories. Vote Now!

I live in Texas, transplanted from Chicago, married, five cats, no children, one mortgage, lots of debt,
I've had some health issues and thanks to medication my writing really got...lost for a while. Different meds and a different job have helped me with that a lot and I'm finally back to writing. So I'm trying to get all of my WIP finished. It's not easy though, to pick up on something I haven't written in several years so bear with me. I've also started posting on AO3 under the same name and the series I've written are a little easier to follow over there because they're linked together.
Qualities include an eye for detail (sometimes we call it OCD), hopeless romantic, and voracious reader. Flaws...lack of html skills and lack of patience (with people). Could include lack of money in there but that's not a character flaw.
I build dollhouses on weekends to do something more physical than writing, usually for a contest through a miniature site. You're welcome to pop over to my blog and take a look. Shenandoah and Stuff at Blogspot
I welcome constructive criticism but if you don't like something I've written give me a good coherent reason why, not just... 'well I don't get it'. I've taken several undergraduate courses in English and Creative Writing so I happily will read any review that can help me improve my writing.
I write for fun, because I love it and enjoy it. I know its the dream of many people to write and make a living at it. To write and love writing is enough for me. I have no desire to end up like Herman Melville. http:///letter3.htm Dollars damn me.
Or, as Justin Matisse said in Hope Floats "You're talkin' 'bout the American Dream. You find something that you love, and then you twist it, and you torture it, try and find a way to make money at it. You spend a lifetime doing that. At the end, you can't find a trace of what you started out lovin'."
I hope you will enjoy my writing for what it is. An endeavor of love, the literal definition of amateur.
I've noticed a little trend in profiles where people say that if you don't copy and paste something into your profile it means you don't care. I don't agree with that because it strikes me as a very passive aggressive form of bullying. I hate bullying in any form and I also don't want a lot of stuff cluttering up my profile. If you want to know what I believe in, ask me. Or read my stories. I make my stance on issues very clear.
Don't get me wrong, its nice that people want to put all this stuff in their profile that supports individualism and freedom of choice in all aspects of their lives. I just don't like the 'do this or it means you're bad' postscript at the end. I try not to discuss politics or religion because those tend to be polarizing hot buttons that end up with conversations going up in flames.
Here's a little something that I truly believe and love that I've been meaning to add for some time now.
The Storytellers Creed
I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge.
I hope that we all find love that is stronger than death.
