I'm absolutely, positively addicted to FanFic, specifically those of the Twilight persuasion. Any pairing other than Edward and Bella is, in my opinion, blasphemous and I'll boycott time and time again.
As of this date, I've not shared any of my writing with this website and all it's inhabitants. Maybe I'm scared of the immense criticism I expect to get or I don't feel it's up to par. Either way, I continue to work on it and will take the leap soon enough.
My single, number one, without a doubt pet peeve, irritation, annoyance, etc...is fanfics that aren't completed. I've wasted my time on too many occasions, putting faith in a writer who swears up and down they'll finish, not to mention promising to post on a regular basis. It's called pre-writing people and it's not rocket science. You simply write out the story to it's completion before posting to this website. Genius, right? I thought so too. That way, no one is disappointed when the story is never finished or the writer comes back months or in some cases, years later, making lame excuses (writers block, real life, husband, children) as to why they left and have suddenly reappeared. Worst of all, the writer expects you to understand and if you don't, you're a horrible person who should be removed from society-believe me, voicing my genius idea has gotten me some very nasty replies in the past, no joke. One writer even told me I was borderline ridiculous for my suggestion since it was only fanfic and she wasn't being paid for her writing. You'll be happy to know, I've learned my lesson, again - never again will I read or review an incomplete fic. Sorry, it suddenly goes against everything I believe in. For those who've worked hard and completed their fics in under a couple of years - BRAVO!!! I've had the pleasure of reading some of the most awesome stories from ff.net and feel privileged you chose to share your immense talent with us. I'm totally jealous and hope to be amongst your gifted group in the near future. Keep on keeping on!!!!
I'm available and would be honored to BETA anyone's work. Please contact me through fanfic.net anytime. Thanks!!
