You can call me
Josie, but I mostly sign my reviews and anything else as MJ (Maibe Josie). I'm a former film student and an avid writer. I love to write. Sometimes I go through serious bouts of writer's block but for the most part I find my way back. I'm also an artist, a musician, and a girl. I love to make movies, I love to work with others on scripts, and for the most part, I try to push myself to reach past my potential. I'm a loyal son of a bitch and I'm not afraid to admit it. You mess with my friends and family, you mess with me...
Why I'm HERE:
I love to read, and I most certainly love to write. I used to be a horrible Mary-Sue addict who just wanted to make-out with some Newsies, so believe me, if you've been on here a while, and loved to read some Newsies fanfics you've endured my terrible Mary-Sues. I grew up, realized that I wasn't challenging myself as a writer by trying to keep characters that aren't mine in character, nor was I getting anywhere by making Mary-Sues, or unloveable ones at that, so I started clean, wiped my Mary-Sue's off the internet and fell in love with a character named Eleanor Nash, and from there solely focused on telling her story (or the way saw it) so I've mainly been focusing on Degrassi fanfics and am currently working on my third and final installment in my Elan (Ellie/Sean) series. Once I'm done with that, I don't know where I'll be going with other stories. I come up with many ideas, but not many make it onto the site.
I'm an avid reader and reviewer. I don't always review right away. Sometimes I need a little time to let a story sink in. Or if I think that a writer could use some improvement and some constructive criticism I'll be there with my fingers on the keyboard ready to give my opinion. I love to see writer's improve, and some and many on here know that and I would rather see a writer work to improve than ignore not just mine but critiques from other and I'm not shy of telling someone that a character is OOC or if an idea totally just sucks, or if someone is writing in script format. Don't hate on reviewers that are right.
Current Projects: (Degrassi Only for now...can't seem to write for anything else)
Reprise // Degrassi: TNG // IN PROGRESS...chapter 10 updated, starting outline for chapter 11
the EmmaEliminator // Degrassi: TNG // thoughts in progress based off of musings of Seanborg.
Playing G.I. Joes // Degrassi: TNG // outline in progress. Not expected to be posted until after Reprise is finished. It's an AU Post DYWM with Sean joining the Army. Ellie's Dad coming home and her and her mother moving on base as he is reassigned to home duty training recruits. Events from JG occur earlier, Caitlin offers Ellie a chance to prove her worth in journalism, and Ellie does a special piece on soldiers.
Amy Fic // Degrassi: TNG // thoughts in progress. Based off of the character development I gave Amy through the Elan Trilogy, it may not happen, but the thoughts to write one are there.
Chaos // Tribe Fic // season one near completion and will be posted soon. Fic based off of my determination to believe that Zoot did not die. Most plots during the series are canon, some are just slight fraying from Canon plots, but it's mostly all the same, but the things you DIDN'T see happening. All explained in the fic. YES THERE IS AN OC. But she's not Mary-Sueish, I promise. Most Tribe fans are fairly welcoming to OCs.
