About me, if you were wondering...
Real First Name: Elizabeth
Reason Behind Strange Penname: Don't ask. I've been a fanfictioner since I was...13 or 14. The name has stuck and I'm too sentimental to change it.
Education: BA in Theatre Arts, 2008, MA in progress
Why I Write Fanfiction: The reason is three-fold - 1) When a story, be it book or movie, ends, I find myself dissatisfied. For my own satisfaction, I have to tie up the loose ends, explore the possibilites that were never touched, and really, I just don't want my favorite things to end. So I write more. 2) I love to write and someday, I hope I have good enough ideas to publish something that others write fanfiction about. But being a busy perfectionist, I find it hard to dedicate myself completely to a totally new idea. So instead, I like to build on current mythologies to hone my craft. That's a little lazy of me but I love to write too much to not do anything. 3) I have so much fun connecting with other people who love the same characters that I do. It's like having a brand new set of friends.
My Original Fiction: Alright, it's newly posted. Any feedback is appreciated! http://www.fictionpress.com/u/194787/e_riley
Hobbies: Theatre doesn't leave a lot of time for anything else (acting & directing mostly) but I love to write, read, decorate, snoop through garage sales and thrift stores, take road trips, and go camping. I also volunteer as a violence survivor advocate.
Books: Well, lately I've had to read a lot of heavy academic stuff but I'm a huge Bronte fan. I also love Austen, Shelley, Shakespeare, Sexton, and pretty much any kind of poetry. And I do have a penchant for Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series.

Quote for the week: The pages are still blank, but there is a miraculous feeling of the words being there, written in invisible ink and clamoring to become visible. ~Vladimir Nabakov
