Author has written 13 stories for Harry Potter, Bleach, Teen Titans, Batman, and Avatar: Last Airbender.
I'm a young woman. I'm twenty-three years old. I'm old-fashioned and very much a lady. I'm not ashamed of that. I'm proud. To me, being called old-fashioned is a high compelment. It's like a badge of honor.
I'm a Christian. I believe in God and Jesus. I believe in the bible. I believe in high morals and principles.
I'm a patriotic American citizen. I love my country, this great land that I was so blessed to be born in. I love my country's history, especially the early days. The founding fathers were amazing people. They were men of morals. They were men who understood what great responsiblity is all about. That's something you don't see enough of with today's politicians. I am firmly convinced that most of the people on Capitol Hill could not be capable of founding a nation, not without it collapsing twenty years later. Yet the founding fathers built a government system that still works over two hundred years later.
I'm a writer. Unpublished, true, but still I am a writer. I've been studying the craft off and on for thirteen years, ever since I was ten. I consider writing to be much more than a hobby or a job. For me it is a calling, something I'm supposed to do. It's something I've been guided towards for more than half my life. Many times I tried to give it up only to be drawn right back to it.
The more serious I get about my faith, the more it affects how I see my writing. I believe that Christians who write have a responsibility to produce stories that are a light unto the world, not a darkness. Stories are supposed to uplift the soul, not drag it down. All entertainment is either a poison or a medicine for the mind and the soul. There is no such thing as casual entertainment that does not affect the mind. Some stories have the power to change an industry. Some stories have changed the world.
Writers, artists, songwriters, and other creative types are as important to the world as doctors and lawyers. That's something that society seems to forget. In many American public school art and music has been taken out. Creativity is not being encouraged. This a horrible mistake. It's the writers, the artists, musicians, the storytellers, and creative thinkers that inspire others. We influence the moods of people towards the positive or the negative. We shape the imaginations, the waking dreams of the nation. No where is this more obvious than on a playground filled with young children. The more imaginative games, the rounds of pretend that the kids play are often based on books that were read to them or the TV shows they watch. Just as kids are influenced so are adults but the influence is usually much more subtle.
It is a rare piece of entertainment that captures much of a nation's attention. It could be a book, a movie, or a comic book. Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Superman all come to mind. All of those were game changers, things will that probably endure into the centuries. Our era's equivalent of The Iliad and The Odyssey or Shakespeare's plays.
When the great works come out they're brand new, so they are seen not as historical greats but as modern entertainment. Entertainment that was good enough, popular enough, and strong enough to be treasured and kept through the ages. If the world lasts a thousand more years then the surviving works of art and entertainment from today will be studied as examples of our culture and how we think. It's the arts, the stories, and the architecture that is most remembered when a civilization is long dead. It's the creative works that help shape a society and later give insight on how people thought and felt.
It's the great stories of an age that get people thinking. It's the great stories that get people excited enough that some start their own story based on it. If the new stories are too close to the inspirations using some of the same characters or concepts, you get fan fics. When the new story is completely dependent on the old to make sense then you've definitely got a fanfic. Fan fiction always bad. What Shakespeare wrote could regarded as fan fics if you look at it from a certain point of view.
I use this account to post the stories I can't write as anything but fan fics. Some fan fics are written just for fun. Others I write for studying purposes.
In writing HE WASN'T LATE I've closely followed the manga plot adding a lot of new ideas the further I went; I've learned from that story a lot about episodic format and action scenes. I'm not sure when if ever that I'll update that story again.
I started writing DC Comics stories largely because I got mad about the DNCU, also known as the new 52. Due to fianacial problems and a lack of internet access I had been out of the loop about the American comic book industry for more than five years. When I finally got around to looking up information about DC comics, my temper went through the roof. The DCNU, the DC New Universe is an awful reboot of DC Comics that completely disregards most of the company's history. It completely disrespects the loyalty of long time fans by getting rid of most of the characters back story. Superman is no longer married and never was. Dick Grayson was never a leader or member of a team called the Teen Titans. The Justice Society of America is no longer a multi-generation team. There's no sense of family or long time friendships. There's no of the old history and that's a huge part of what made DC so great.
DC ELECTRUM is my take on an amalgamated DC Universe taking ideas from all the different ages of DC's history. All DC ELECTRUM stories are meant to be read as loosely connected stand-alones. When I first got into comics it was by reading summaries of the characters histories in the DK guides. I then sought a wide variety graphic novels with stories from all the different eras of DC Comics. Just as I like to skip around the different eras in my reading, I like to do it in my writing too. Some of my DC ELECTRUM stories are ongoing but I can't say when I'll post the next chapter or a new story.
I can't say when I'll update any story. I'm not always good at finishing stories. I get way more ideas than I can ever fully write. My ability to write a story is based on my motivation and interest. If I'm not interested in a story anymore then I can't write it, not for months, if ever. I'm not just working on fan fics. I've got original works too, including a finished novel that I'm trying to edit. Also I've got chronic health problems, Fibromyalga and Arthritis which I've had flaring up, off and on ever since I was about seven or eight years old. Chronic means the health problems don't go completely away but are instead recurring. It's not life threatening but it sure is life interrupting. Said health problems interfere with my plans a lot especially on cold or rainy days.
So for many reasons, my story updates are and will continue to be kind of erratic. Some stories I may not update at all. If I get more reviews and visitors for a particular story I might update it but I make no promises.
