Hard to believe I’ve been doing this on this site for 7 years now…and it has been nearly 3 years since I last updated my profile. Life has become incredible busy and stressful these days, mostly due to work. Stress and my Muse do not go hand in hand, sadly. One often leads to the other leaving in a snit of all things. As I need my job, at least according to my bill collectors, I fear the Muse will be taking a great many vacations in the foreseeable future. I do hope to get back to I, Alone but first want to go through it and edit it to remove typos, spelling and grammar mistakes. I also have a few other idea in the works as well.
As I have received many PM's and questions concerning my stories, Witches of Westfield more than others, I thought I would let everyone know that I have every intention of finishing them. It seems that the Muse, not invited to San Diego with me back in June, decided to take a vacation of her own...from which she has yet to return sadly. I do believe that she will return once things in my life have settled somewhat. So I thank you all for your kind words concerning my stories and I do apologize for keeping you waiting. If you happen to see a Muse aimlessly wandering about or perhaps leisurely sunning herself on some beach near the equator, kindly inform her that her presence is severally missed and it is long past the time she should return home.
As I finally managed to break the 1 million words published on here (Yeah Me!) I thought I would take a bit of time to update my bio.
I don’t consider myself a great writer. I don’t think of myself as a writer at all, actually. I just happen to like to scribble down some words and share them. The fact that others enjoy those same words still amazes me at times. So I’m really not a writer but rather, if I have to place a name to it, I’m a Story Teller. I tell stories that the Muse and my over active imagination spin up.
Some may say that there really isn’t a difference between being a writer and being a Story Teller. I say balderdash! A writer is someone who is rather meticulous when it comes to spelling, grammar and sentence structure. Some have editors to run roughshod over them and if they are really, really, good they get paid for their hard work.
Story Tellers on the other hand are more inclined to wanting to tell their tale to anyone who will listen. It is the story and the characters that make the tale. You’ll find we’re less concerned with making certain our T’s are crossed and that the I’s are dotted (though we don’t mind if you point out when we’ve forgotten either). I dare say we’re even a bit haphazard about it…a bit sloppy if you will. No, really, it is all about the story and making it a good one. If I, as a Story Teller, can make you feel what the characters feel, then I’ve done my job, rather admirably I should think.
As for what sort of stories I like to tell, well that’s the easy part, romance. There’s nothing like a good love story to curl up with on a rainy night or even a sunny day for that matter. Love is something we all know about in one form or another so it is easy, as a reader to relate. Love doesn’t care about such things as age, gender, religious beliefs or the color of a characters skin. It truly is, much like music, universal. Toss in a little action, some angst and a pinch of humor and you have the makings of a great story to tell.
Many of the people on here are Story Tellers like myself. None of them get paid so be kind and gracious and leave a review if you like the story they are telling. A Favorite is nice but if you liked it enough to add it to your favorites didn’t you enjoy enough to review and let the Story Teller know she or he is doing a good job? There are a lot of great Story Tellers on this site so be kind and review.
"I promise to review (kindly) every fanfic I read whether it be fantastic, useless, or anywhere in between. I make this pledge because I know how frustrating it is for an author to have hundreds (or thousands) of hits and only a handful of reviews."
