Thirty-something mother of 3-year-old twins.
I am 5-credit-hours shy of getting my BA in English Literature. English Lit! Haha - imagine that! And, yes, in case you're wondering why I'm thirty-something and still don't have a degree, it's because (~palms face~ How embarassing!) it took me SO much longer than the average person to get my shit together! Anyway, it shouldn't be a surprise that I love to read and to write.
I used to write alot of stories and fairytales in high school, but got out of the habit when I got to college because, unfortunately, writing research papers and critical analysis took priority over my frivolity. Well, that and I didn't take my professor's criticism very well. What I worked my ass off for and thought was some of my greatest writing, would get returned to me bleeding crimson with notes in the margins that said such things as "Too wordy" or "Too vague." Isn't that almost an oxymoron? WTF? It's either one or the other, right? ~sigh~
Needless to say, my reading hasn't suffered but my writing has; and I hope to find the courage one of these days very soon to put my own stuff up here for everyone to read. I am more than just a little gun-shy, though! Hey! I think I have a good reason!
Okay, well that's it in a nutshell!
Please be sure to check out my favorite's list! I admire the authors on this list more than they'll ever know and I wish there were some way to tell them how much I enjoyed each and every one of the stories on this list! So for now, all I can do is recommend and be thankful to them for sharing their words with me, and all of us here on ff.net!
