Hello there, and welcome to my profile! I'm Skyflower51, as you can see, but you can call me Sky. I've been on this site for four years now, and I've written something almost every day since the moment I first signed up. My brain spends most of its time in fictional universes - aside from my own, some particular favourites are the Elder Scrolls, Dragon Age and Mass Effect games, Doctor Who and Torchwood, and Star Wars. Currently I'm mostly focusing on stories featuring the world of the Elder Scrolls games, in particular Skyrim. However, I'll also be writing a few things for other fandoms... whether I'll eventually manage to write something for all the different worlds I love remains to be seen.
I have a DeviantArt page, also under the name Skyflower51, where I produce a little fanart, and occasionally some stories and poems which I don't put up on FFN. If you want to know more about my beloved children - ahem, I mean my OCs - you can check out my Charahub page, where I am called SkyScribbles; there's information about all of my major characters there. (Apologies if the links don't work; I'm trying to fix them, but I'm not getting very far.)
11th October 2016 - Vokunkiir is finally finished! Just one of the Dragonborn Short Stories left to go - though I'm considering uploading it to DeviantArt rather than here on FFN, since it'll probably have quite a limited audience (it's completely pre-game content, just OC backstory.)
I've also deleted a bunch of my older, terrible stories, since no doubt anyone who read them suffered permanent loss of brain cells..
A few facts about me:
1. I am one of those people who thinks about their favourite books/films/TV shows/games/etc all the time. I think I spend more time in fiction than reality.
2. My mind is spouting story ideas all the time- so much so that most of them never get written down. Only a tiny proportion of my story ideas will actually end up here, but I will write as many as I can!
3. If your story is on my favourites list, then you should be very happy. The only stories I put there are my real, real favourites - the ones that had me hooked right from the start, the ones with the best plots and characters, the ones I've read again and again, and am probably going to go on reading for a long, long time...
4. I live for fiction. I've been reading unstoppably since I first learned to read. I would dearly love to one day find a career in professional writing - but if that never happens, at least I may be able to entertain a few people here.
5. Here's how I write - or would in an ideal world. After uploading a chapter, I give myself a day off, in which I do no writing at all (unless I get bored). On every following day, I do my best to write at least 1000 words. That means a chapter of, say, 6000 words, will be uploaded in a week, sooner if I'm on a roll and get more done in one day. I do it this way because it means I get plenty of writing done quickly, but I don't tire myself out. Updates may be slower if I've got other work to do, or if I need to plan out the chapter in detail before writing. Or if I get the dreaded writer's block...
6. My favourite hobbies are reading, writing, laughing and sleeping. I love mint chocolate. I adore eagles. And oranges make me feel sick.
