My name is Buffy R. Cary and I have been a writer even before I fully understood what that meant. I started writing plays based on my favorite TV shows when I was around 8 or 9. Yep, I'm a fanfiction writer from way back, though at the time I had no idea anyone else did the same thing. Boy, was I wrong.
One memorable thing I worked on in high school had around 40+ characters interwoven into the story line. Because I am a little anal about character detail, each character had a 3x5 note card with their vital stats on it such as weight, height, full name, nickname, siblings, hair color, eye color, and personality. I'm not quite that bad now, but it did help me in how I approach writing today.
Writing is my therapy. It's cheap and I can do it anywhere. When I am sad or upset, I put that into my characters. Through my writing, I can explore sides of myself that I would not normally show the world. I also write for other people. I like to make them happy and maybe, just for a little while, take them into another world.
