Author has written 6 stories for Gallagher Girls, and Heist Society.
I'm 15 (soon to be 16!) and am in the beginning stages of writing my own novel. I've been a writer on this website for two and a half years and am aware of how inconsistent my updates have been. However, no matter how busy I get or how much time passes, I always find myself coming back to read different fanfics.
So much had changed in my life since I was a naive thirteen year old fangirl. I mean, the fangirl part of me remains the same. (I don't think that will ever change.) But my taste has matured, as well as my writing style. Don't get me wrong, I still love the Gallagher Girls and the crew in Heist Society, not to mention Percy and Annabeth (how amazing was House of Hades? Life changing amazing, I tell you.) But my sophomore British Literature class has exposed me to Jane Eyre and her beau Mr. Rochester, Charles Darnay and Lucie Manette of A Tale of Two Cities, and Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austen is one of my idols).
I am also taking a creative writing class this year. Although it's not what I expected, I do think it has helped me with my writing technique. I was forced to write poetry this past semester and fell in love with it, which surprised me. I never thought I had the talent to do so. While I'm certainly not the next poet prodigy, I'm not horrific at it either.
I am very excited to start writing fanfiction again! I'll warn you though that my schedule tends to be a bit hectic. I am lucky enough to attend an academically rigorous school on a scholarship, so I definitely need to keep my grades up. Mix that in with an after-school job, clubs and such, and spending time with family, friends, and a boyfriend, I won't be able crank out a chapter and update every other day like when I first started. Which kinda sucks, because if I could I would write all day and night like I used to.
Gosh, I've been away for so long I'll be surprised if anyone even reads this. I've migrated to other fandoms and when I went to check out the Gallagher fandom again (my old home), I was surprised to see that I didn't recognize any of the new authors. I feel like such an old-timer.
Well, it's Christmas Eve as I write this. It'll probably be after December 25th when I upload this. Either way Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year! Hopefully I'll have a chapter up in '14.
Love you all,
