UserName: I chose 8Belles in honor of the filly Eight Belles who was the fourth filly to ever run in the Kentucky Derby. She died on the track on May 3rd, 2008 right behind Big Brown (the Derby winner). She was a brave girl, despite being a horse, and shows the inner strength all women have to persevere.
Occupation: Science teacher (everything but Physics - but I still understand it)-- for a LONG time. I'm older than the Internet. I've been writing since I was in high school-- by hand, in note books. Never published.
HEY! do you like ART? Do you like FAN ART or just Art in general? Then check out my INSTAGRAM (yes-I'm over 40 with an Instagram) at speedbug73. It's only my art. NO funky stuff. And I DO take commissions.
MASTER OF ANALOGIES
STEVEN GRANT ROGERS IS NOT HYDRA. NO WAY. EVER. MARVEL- FIX IT! NOW. I don't care if Kobic is a little girl. FIX IT.
LITERALLY does NOT EQUAL ACTUALLY. Use the right word. Do it.
All Bottle flipping and fidget spinners... get out. Now.
Like and Lover of :
I am the FLASHBACK QUEEN. My grandparents (1914,1918) were older than Steve Rogers, but so many things I remember from them I feel/put into my stories of Bucky and Cap. It's like reliving history. So much fun.
Also-- I don't cuss a lot in my fic. I'm no prude but I hear foul language at my workplace (from students) All. The. TIME. I'm just TIRED of hearing it. So yes, the well placed F-bomb is a great literary device, but not in my fics. Some other lighter cussing may occur for emphasis, but never gratuitously.
Movies: Star Wars, LOTR, Marvel Movie-verse, All 80's Sci Fi/Fantasy etc etc etc... It's a GREAT time to be a NERD.
If you think you "can't write" don't believe it... just keep swimming! It's like riding a bike. You have to DO it to get BETTER at it. Write what YOU want to read.
Thank you for all the kind words... I am happy to share my stories with you!
I don't own any of these characters, I just play with them from time to time.
