Hey y'all, thank you for stopping by!
My name is Nadine and I started writing Fanfiction at the tender age of 12 (Ha. Nothing tender about that, I was obnoxious). I only mustered up the courage to start publishing it 3 years later in 2011. The creative process of writing about things that I love, publishing it, and receiving feedback gave me purpose and so much happiness as an angsty teenager. I'm not even exaggerating; Fanficiton seriously got me through some really rough times. It has helped me push myself to think beyond my own mental boundaries, to pursue a deeper knowledge of English (my second language), and to really commit to something outside of my own bubble. I have written so much more than I have published. I even wrote some original flash fiction and poetry; those never saw the light because they felt too personal, not to mention that I had no platform to publish them.
That being said, I stopped writing in 2014. I had been going through some really rough times and I lost all inspiration. Some of the fics I have posted are multi-chaptered, none of them are complete. Am I planning to pick them up? Maybe. I have been revisiting my profile for the past couple of weeks, and I've mostly been polishing up my old fics, some of which were a little offensive and for that, I truly apologize. Now that I am a lot more informed and socially aware, I will not allow anything on my profile to offend anyone. Fanfiction should be a safe space where ALL kinds of people should find an escape and immerse themselves into the stories.
Anyway, back to our original topic. I miss writing. I miss it to the point that it physically aches sometimes. I haven't written in years, but I can feel the inspiration and desire for it building up, and I know it will come out soon enough. Still, I have been overwhelmed with school and work (I won't sugarcoat it, adulthood freaking sucks), and I haven't had the time or energy to sit down and actually put all those thoughts on paper (or word document, whatever). I really am planning to pick up my abandoned stories. I'm not sure if I'll be publishing them here or somewhere else. Maybe I'll start a blog like everyone and their mothers, who knows? But this is not the end of it.
Anyway, if you've made it this far, thank you! I hope you have a wonderful day and hopefully you'll find a new update from me if you're sticking around!
