Author has written 1 story for Lord of the Rings.

Hi all-

I am casual writer that writes when the mood strikes me. No schedule. No plan. Just writing what I like. If anyone reads my work, please know that I do not write for YOU, but for ME. I love and appreciate the support of awesome readers, but I do this because I have the time and the inclination, not because I'm being paid to work a schedule. I wish I could be one of those writers who updates like clockwork but that's not me. I admittedly have a widely-roving muse that takes me into many different fandoms at different times, and I really have a hard time staying on one project at a time. However, no fiction I place on this account will be unfinished, and that is a promise!

It is my great and hopeful desire to improve my writing through this account.

I never realized how difficult writing actually is until I started writing my own fanfictions. I tend to write off the cuff instead of ahead of time, which means I'm always having to go back and add in things I decide I missed before as a story goes on. I am constantly revising my work to make it more readable and appealing. Starting stories is e.a.s.y. - finishing can be difficult when you find yourself uninspired. Props to all those accomplished fan fic-ers out there. It's amazingly difficult and you guys do it best!

I definitely appreciate my amazing followers, who support me even when I veer off into something else or stop for a while altogether. You guys are awesome!

A little about me: I am a 23-year-old teacher living on the East Coast with my dog. My hobbies include video gaming (World of Warcraft, Skyrim, Star Wars: The Old Republic, etc), reading, watching movies and tv shows on Netflix, and writing. I absolutely adore all things teaching, and have been known to sit back and read teacher blogs ALL. NIGHT. LONG.


Beta-Reading: I would LOVE to beta-read any romance/angst/supernatural/etc fan fiction! I am open to anything, but I prefer M/F pairings only. My stomping-grounds: Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Twilight, Band of Brothers, Inuyasha, Dark-Hunters, Carpathians, X-Men. My ability to beta-read is not limited, however, to these categories. Please shoot me an e-mail if you are interested in my beta-reading services!


A Note on Reviews: I will not respond to reviews that demand updates. I write on my own schedule, and while I will always finish stories published here, it will be done if and when I want to write about a particular story. Some weeks I'll post a HUGE load of chapters cause I don't have much going on, and other weeks you may not see an update at all. Be patient if that happens. Pushy/nasty readers make for unhappy writers, people. That said, I do always enjoy hearing how much you are just dying to read my next chapter. That's motivation!

A Note on Flames: Flame reviews (reviews that do nothing but trash story content and offer no constructive advice) will be summarily deleted. Though they are, thankfully, rare, I will not tolerate being berated for writing a story that doesn't follow readers' guidelines/ideas of how my story in a given fandom should be written. I am very clear about the content of a given story in announcing its tags and in beginning author's notes. While I welcome all open-minded readers and their constructive criticism, I do not invite readers who will knowingly dislike the content of my stories to read them.
